When I was a child, the first connection I have to the word “anthem” is “The Star-Spangled Banner” which is America’s national anthem. As I grew older, I became acquainted with choral anthems. Our church choir normally presented at least one of those each service. As I grew even older, I began claiming songs as…
Time to break out the cleaning solution, mops, rags, etc., right? You may be thinking it’s time to run. This morning, I took some time to work on some things I had let go at home for quite some time. It was a small step, but I felt extremely accomplished. Afterward, I began to think…
Pray About Everything?
Prayer is a buzzword for everyone in the Christian community (even for many outside the Christian community). Other religions practice prayer too. As a Christian, I look to the Bible as my guideline for teaching about prayer. Philippians 4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your…
As I shared in a recent post, these last few months have not been without challenges. Amidst the challenges, God gave me some sweet reminders. I wish I could say my faith was mighty and strong through all this, but I wavered and flopped. I’m glad God still came through for me despite myself. A…
The One Who Showed Up

I grew up as an only child, so I had no competition at home. I did, however, have cousins I saw frequently at my grandma’s house. Until I was 10, all my cousins were girls, so we had lots of arguments. My grandma was always determined we were going to fix it, so she did…
Are Reblogs a Thing of the Past?
I began my WordPress blogging “career” in 2015. I had no clue what I was doing, but I guess I figured some things out. Before I knew it, I had 1,600 followers. A few years ago, I burned out and let the old domain go. Months later, I purchased this one. In retrospect, I have…

To Those Who Have Been Lied About
Life can be hard. People can be cruel. It hurts even when we expect it, but cruelty from those you thought loved you is an even harder pill to swallow. We all have had someone lie about us, but some of those lies have been quite damaging to our reputation. Over a year ago, I…
