Write About a Quilt or a Blanket

I have a pink Snuggie neatly folded in the bottom drawer of my guest bedroom.  It was meant to be placed out of sight and hopefully mind.  My mother, younger sister and I had a matching set.  One for each in our own respective homes.   After my mother’s death I would sit in her den for hours wrapped in her blanket.  Her scent still fresh I placed my arms in…

In Search of the Right Journaling App

Finding the right journaling app is the equivalent to finding the right notebook to write in.  It needs to fit your lifestyle.  Is it easy to use or does it have a substantial learning curve?  Can media be added to an entry and if so, is it considered a “premium” feature or part of the free package?  Finding the right app means looking beyond the aesthetics.  It may look good…

Write about the night sky

When I consider your heavens,     the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,     which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them,     human beings that you care for them? Psalm 8:3-4 NIV If I ponder long enough about the night sky, or any of God’s creation for that matter, I cannot help but sit in awe and wonder.  How the stars light…

7 Steps to creating a journal for your future husband

With valentine’s day quickly approaching I wanted to provide single women with a ray of sunshine.  For years I was the valentine’s day version of the grinch.   Becoming grumpy and isolating myself until the 15th of February.  At least I could buy the candy for half off.  Eventually I came to understand that this is not the way I wanted to live life.  I chose to be happily content regardless…

Going Through the Motions…

As I walked into my workspace, I looked around my desk and saw different items I’d left from the previous night.  My Big Happy Planner I use for blogging was filled with a week of postings for both social media and the blog itself.    The classic happy planner I use for my 2019 goals lay open as well.  Complete with the top three priorities I set for my self each…

Write about a used car

My dream car is a 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible.  Preferably candy apple red but I’ll settle for any color available if given the option.  I have no idea when or how this idea formulated into my mind, but it’s been there for quite some time.  Seeing Mandisa driving one in her music video “overcomer” didn’t help matters either.  I love that car and everything about it.  It’s sporty, classy yet…

In the Meantime…

A Letter to my Younger Self Love does not entail verbal abuse. You’ll have your heart broken but don’t give up on love. Disharmony in the church is normal, but not representative of Christ’s love. Don’t be afraid to travel.  Alone… Don’t settle for a job because it pays well.  Pursue your passion. Don’t be afraid to walk away.  You deserve better. Public speaking gets easier once you find your…

Write about something you bought mail order

In order to do a better job in achieving my goals I purchased the new Happy Planner for goal setting.  I use it instead of my regular classic planner and so far, I’m really enjoying it.  I’ve even created a mini vision board to place alongside my goals for 2019.  Having the ability to break each goal down both monthly and weekly in such a cute manner is ideal.   This…
