He Calms our Fears

He Calms our Fears

Till recently I'd never heard of the product known as Kalms. If you're also out of that loop let me explain what it is. Kalms is a natural remedy tablet that you can take to relieve periods of worry, irritability, stress and strain.  The pandemic has created added stress worldwide. Anxiety was just as prevalent [...]

Every Morning

Every Morning

I've been under the waves Straining to swim Fighting the current And reaching to win. Some days I grow weary My vision grows dim But you are my eyes, Lord When there's turmoil within. Your mercies don’t cease They're new at days dawn What will the tide bring When I can't carry on?  There's always [...]

Sleepytime Extra

Sleepytime Extra

It's time for another "T tastes tea!" I'm on the fence about this Celestial Seasonings tea. Can you tell? Considering the creepy event that occurred while partaking in this calming session with a cup of tea, I've begun to aptly call it Freakytime Extra. I have another suitable name for it as well. More on [...]

Goals and Results

Goals and Results

I appreciate goals. I'm not the type of person to simply hang up my hat. ('Er cap.) I need that thinking cap! Settling down isn't likely going to happen. So I keep setting goals both physically and spiritually.  When I feel as if I'm not getting anywhere, life becomes frustrating. I need more patience. If [...]

The Abundant Life: P2

The Abundant Life: P2

I keep expressing that good things can come out of bad things. Perhaps I haven't expressed this on my blog. I'm uncertain. Nevertheless, it's about time that I proved it. It's no secret that I've really been struggling during this pandemic.  I never realized how much impact those family gatherings had on my life. During [...]

Sharing and Bearing

Sharing and Bearing

Sharing burdens isn't always easy. There are certain people in my life that I'm willing to share things with in detail, while others I may give a short variation of the same story. Some may even find me very closed off. My walls go up immediately. Trust has a lot to do with how much [...]

Parentage: Part 4

Parentage: Part 4

In my last "Parentage" installment my cowboy great-grandpa met three wayward men on his migration from England to Canada. (The wayward part is my embellishment.) We also found out that these three brothers would become his brother's-in-law! Yeehaw! Here's where I started getting confused by the way this story was written. One moment I was [...]

Troubles

Troubles

I've been troubled by troubles. Not simply my own. Seeing people that I care for struggle has been difficult for me as well. There's a lot of it out there, and for someone who is very empathic (points to self) life has been draining.  I messaged my friend Ronda about how I was feeling and [...]
