Seasons of Change and Growth

Seasons of Change and Growth

  ~~ ‘Tis the Season… for Change and Growth ~~     I missed blogging yesterday due to other obligations, so in an effort to keep going and not quit, I’m browsing past posts  and selecting some that seem relevant to share again as we enter this month that heralds a change of seasons. I hope this one speaks to you and proves helpful and encouraging!     I am thankful when change leads to growth! It’s not always pleasant–think…

Rest If You Must, But Do Not Quit!

Rest If You Must, But Do Not Quit!

Don’t You Quit!     I am so thankful, by the grace of God, that I held onto my faith in God and His divine inspiration to NOT quit my doctoral journey over the 7 1/2 years it took to cross that finish line!  I felt like it so many times, but now I’m on the other side of the finish line, with a sense of relief and satisfaction–and a bit of shock–that I really completed that journey last year…

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…

Just One of THOSE Days

Just One of THOSE Days

  How to Manage THOSE Days     Friday is here again! I know this means more to people who work regular Monday to Friday jobs “out there” than it does for people like me who work from home. All my days tend to blend together, but Friday does mean the end of my hubby’s work week and I look forward to him being home for the weekend and being able to spend more time together.   Today is also…

Reflecting on Baby Steps and Small Beginnings

Reflecting on Baby Steps and Small Beginnings

Baby Steps & Small Beginnings   Have you ever pondered if those baby steps or small beginnings in your life will ever amount to anything? Whether it’s a personal goal or business venture, starting off  s  l  o  w  l  y  can sometimes be really discouraging. That’s when I think about how I’ve watched my own children (and now my grandchildren) learn to walk. My almost 13-month-old granddaughter Lilly is just at that stage, taking those first tottering, uncertain steps…
