  1. Worn out

    I am so tired. I haven't written all week because there has been so much going on. Monday night, Ethan my 10 yr old nephew broke his arm and had to be rushed into surgery. I knew he would be ok, but it still scared the heck outta me, him having to be under anesthesia and all. We went to the hospital to be with my sis-in-law since my brother was out of town at the Academy. When we got to the hospital it was after dark and the building lights just glowed, the parking lot was dimly lit and inside there ...

  2. The Temptation

    We are all familiar with the story of the temptation of Christ. Shortly after Christ was baptized by his cousin John Christ was led into the desert to be tempted by the devil. Now, if you are like me, you may think of the 3 temptations that are mentioned and think that was it.

I was working on my fiancee's bday present night before last and I started feeling bad...I was also trying to study for the drivers permit. Well, I got really sick that night and couldn't take the test, and I have felt bad ever since. I've been so doped up on Benadryl and Tylenol it's not funny.
    Then of course, the enemy in his kindness, pummels me with stuff. Fiancee ...

  5. One Day At A Time

    Whew, what a week, and its only Thursday. Rest assured as soon as you decide to break free from something (or things), satan will turn up the heat in just about every area of your life. I have had an ongoing conflict with my mom this week, difficulties letting things go and forgiving, struggling to get things done because I've been feeling bad physically, and just soo pressured to "get things done" that I feel like I don't have time to do or am just slightly afraid of doing.
