Goodbye, Dear Friend

It was bound to happen. I knew one day I was going to have to say goodbye to my trusted, green friend. My little green Kia. She was already a bit old when I bought her, but I bought her anyway. Like picking out the runt of the litter, I chose her.
I sold my beautiful car I had before her right after my divorce. I was angry, bitter, lost and I wanted a car that separated me from the past. Well, that is what I got in my new little Kia. 
This little car has seen me through years of trials. Struggles, deep snow, thunder and rain so thick I had to pull over to let it subside before I resumed driving. 
I had several trips moving my baggage and boxes of my belongings from one place to another. It went fr...

In the hands of the Potter

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation: the old is gone, the new has come.    2 Corinthians 5;17
Isn't that exciting? I think it is. If you are like me and have made mistakes in any area and looking for a do-over, well, putting your life in Jesus' hands is the best start for change. We are re-created. New. Old junk is gone and we are forgiven!

I lost most everything. But I tried to hide it. I tried to put on the face of strength. That doesn't work because it comes back to you. Once I truly ...

This is not the post I was intending to write, but, for now it's what I need to share.

Sometimes we need to just be quiet and listen in silence. There is much wisdom to be had in silence. Our immediate struggles and confusion can be solved in silence.

It's said that we have the answers inside of us, already. All we need to do is get still, quiet and out of our own way.

Confusion comes even when you are on the right track. It happens. We could be doing too much. We get so excited and want to keep going when we should stop, take a break, but we don't. We keep going until our mind plays tricks on us and then we get off course. For course correction, get quiet. Find peace and listen to that still small voice that will lead you back.

I did that. I w...

Something Good For My Gut

In the process of getting myself together, this new year and all, I decided to start drinking bone broth. Have you heard of it? I hadn't. It was new to me, but I came across this article when looking for natural ways to heal my stomach pain. I didn't want to be stuck taking pills the rest of my life so I started looking around. I asked a good friend of mine about what to do since she has had stomach issues herself in the past. I knew she could direct me in the right direction. I was right.

She told me about inflammation and what causes that. I have a history of eating poorly from years ago and it caught up with me. I don't know about you but when I was younger I could eat whatever I wanted. There were not any consequ...
