Most importantly it can affect your walk with the Lord! Continue reading “When Expectations Leave You Feeling Defeated”

Daylight Savings Time: 7 Fun Facts, a Timeline, 5 Quotes, and 2 Poems

I’m sure you are aware of the fact that tomorrow, October 6, 2016 at 2:00 am is Daylight Savings Time (DTS). You will be “falling back” one hour. Which, in my opinion, is much better than “springing forward”. This way we get an “extra” hour to sleep, or in my case, an extra cup of coffee while getting ready for church 🙂

Blogging without Facebook

As everyone knows, blogging and Facebook go hand in hand for most bloggers, for promoting purposes mostly. While I have missed blogging, even though it is still quite new to me, I figured the two went together and when I gave up one I had to give up the other.

You may have noticed I have not been posting like I said I would.  I have an explanation for this.  Shortly after my last post there was an incident.  I will not go into the ugly details. This incident has led me to believe avoiding Facebook at all costs is the right thing to do “in this season”.
