Lord, Shut My Mouth!

Dear God, Please help me to think before I speak. For You know that I would never intentionally hurt anyone. Guide my actions to do only Your will. Guide my steps to only go as far as You will allow me. Guide my thoughts so that I do not think on things that are not […]

A “Simple” Calling: The Ministry of Friendship

A friend loves at all times… Proverbs 17:17 NKJV This calling is a rather obvious one… but I would like to still touch on the topic of friendship. What does it mean to be a true friend? Is it just a social thing? Obviously, it is not. If it were, we would not become so […]

W.W.J.D.?

Well?

We all remember this bracelet fad from the mid to late 90′s. And for many of us, it really was just that -a fad- and nothing more. The other day I came across one of these bracelets and my first thought was, “Cool! I haven’t seen one of these in years!” But then I began […]

What’s On My Heart

I simply want to sit down and tell you everything in my life is wonderful, but to do that would be a lie. I feel as tho I am going thru transitions that scare me, ones I can’t control and am not even sure I want to try. Being the oldest of our four writers […]

And the Best Friend Award Goes To…

1159993_12104124

While reading the status’s of young pre-teen girls, I find them somewhat humorous and sometimes very irritating. Being the mother of a pre-teen, I get a glimpse of what is going on in their circle of friends. I have found that who ever gives the “invite” of the week is the “bestie” of the moment… […]

Who’s Perfect?

“Oh, we had such a wonderful night/day. The dog and cat were holding hands. The kids got along just great and I’ve never ruined a supper. Honestly. Never.” We are all human. We all make mistakes. While someone’s trial is coming to an end, someone else’s is just beginning. We go thru cycles of ups […]

I Won A Prize!!!

Good Luck Chuck Stick People

In July of 2004, I made friends with a group of people in an IHOP. If you know me, this comes as no surprise. We ended up merging our tables and the other group came and sat with my group. One of these persons is a guy who we will refer to as “Chuck”… That […]

Becky and Madison, NOW you’re seeing your Mom & G’Madre Diania! But we’re not bitter…   Dear Lord, Please […]

A New Kind Of Party!

Tupperware. Mary Kay. Pampered Chef. Premier Jewelry. Avon. BeautiControl. Lia Sophia. Thirty-one. I’m sure we’ve all been to or hosted our own party-enjoyed an evening with friends, munched on appetizers, gabbed on and on over this and that, maybe even left with less money than we had when we arrived.   Recently I was sitting […]
