Me and Edie Windsor

Am I the only one that questions my actions? My whereabouts…ok it’s probably just me. But being a Christian in a worldly setting of being with up 1500 woman that call themselves lesbians one might wonder. Am I really supposed to be here? It was October of 2015 when we first saw Edie. She sat…

Our Expectations vs Reality

We all do it. We all have pondered what it would be like to win the lotto. To have the perfect house. Spouse. Children. Complexion. But has it ever helped? If so you’ve read one too many Cosmo magazines. (Though one is too many imo) and think that wishful thinking is a synoman for goal…

The tides are changing

Change. It’s the only thing that is constant. When God closes a door He always opens a window. The definition of insanity is to keep doing something over and over again expecting different results. I hate platitudes. Yet these all apply. I have told my friends in the crafts shows I do, that when God…

I don’t believe in God because my mother told me too!

Growing up I couldn’t help notice my mother was a Christian. She would play hymns on her accordion and the piano. She listened to my prayers ever night, and taught me the Lord’s Prayer by heart. And I still have my children’s bible she gave me. I can still remember hearing the clicking of her high…

Ending at the Beginning

When I tried to fix a Traffic Ticket

I tried to fix my speeding ticket…ok, not really. But how about I tired to fix the traffic school class to fix my speeding ticket? Or how does a middle aged Christian woman, end up doing something unethical little own illegal? It was about 2005. And I got a speeding ticket. I accepted it and…

My first Writing Experience

My mother loved gadgets, and usually had the latest version. Because of this, by age seven I already had her old typewriter sitting on my desk. I sat at it one day and decided to write something. I had heard someone share their advise regarding writing, “write what you know” they said. Even then I thought…
