Evening Light  So lovely a night Warm through and through Let me bask in this sight. Can't I stay outside? Can't I capture the moon? I could sleep under the stars Till I'm bit by a racoon.  Tina S.W.

God's Whispers of Truth

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance.

Superstitions

Superstitions

If you're superstitious then you may throw daggers at me (or bananas) but I'm not one bit superstitious. There is the odd superstition that's pretty super. It's quite sensible to avoid running with [...]

Comedy Relief

Comedy Relief

This is a little add on to my "The Sound of Rain" post. Andrew and I watched Louie Anderson's comedy act last night. When Louie got to the bit about rain I told Andrew that I needed to look this one up on Youtube. It's the perfect offset. Accepting Jesus' authority doesn't mean that life [...]

You’re A What?

Continued from The Path... The beginning of this story starts HERE. Andrew was a lot like mushrooms after a bad rain. He just kept popping up. I never complained about this either. Since he worked at the other end of the mall, he’d drop by on his lunch breaks. So for the next month I [...]

Continued from Stepping Stones... The beginning of this story starts HERE. When I met batchelor #1 I was unemployed. Though I went out looking for work, I struggled to hand out resumes.

Love and War

Love and War

Tom was a jovial man. He had 2 cats, a dog and a parrot named Pippa. Every morning, as Tom opened his crisp morning paper, Pippa would cry out, "No news is good news! No news is good news!" She'd heard her parrot papa recite this many times upon finishing his morning read. Of course [...]
