On This Labor Day – Remembering My Dad’s Passing, 16 Years Ago

On This Labor Day – Remembering My Dad’s Passing, 16 Years Ago

16 Years Ago…       On Labor Day 16 (!) years ago (actually September 2, 2002), my beloved Dad ceased his labors, escaped the suffering of lymphoma, and left the boundaries of this earth to enter heaven’s gates – to touch the face of God, and to return the embrace of the Lord Whom Dad served his entire life.   In a departure from my usual format, because of this day of remembrance,  I thought I would once again…

Do You Need an Attitude Adjustment? My Dad’s Legacy of Gratitude

Do You Need an Attitude Adjustment? My Dad’s Legacy of Gratitude

Attitude Adjustment? OR Attitude of Gratitude?       Do you have an attitude of gratitude or do you need an attitude adjustment?

I have once again joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC) this month, so for my first post, I thought I would re-introduce the back story and purpose of this blog (can also be found on my About page). I thought this would also be a good idea because I’ve recently joined several new blog groups on Facebook. I decided to revise this blog, which was…

God Carries Our Cares So We Can Let Go and Let God Work on Our Behalf

God Carries Our Cares So We Can Let Go and Let God Work on Our Behalf

Let Go and Let God!   Let go and let God carry your cares, because He cares for you. Sometimes this is easier said than done. We tend to want to hold onto our “cares” and problems, perhaps feeling like if we let go, we are not in control, and that allows fear to enter the picture. But I think that’s the point: we need to recognize and understand when we’re struggling and overwhelmed, we really are NOT in control…
