I messed up. Big time. You ever make a bad choice and then continually berate yourself, questioning why, why, why would you do that? How could you be so stupid, thoughtless, lazy, inconsiderate, or whichever appropriate adjective fits the situation?
I didn’t want to blog I this week. I honestly didn’t even want to get out of bed for the last couple of days. After the multiple challenges I experienced immediately following last week’s blog, I was questioning if I should even continue with this. I think God decided it was testing time (yet again), … Continue reading The Journey from Test to Testimony
Last week I was surprised on Social Media, learning that I had won tickets from Faith on the Field for a concert with the Christian band, Unspoken.

I know that’s what happened when my younger sister informed me that our other sister (and her twin) was diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s hard to describe the feeling, it’s like your entire world momentarily stops as you process … Continue reading Why Me (or Them) Lord?
So, now that we had Kennedi’s diagnosis, we had to return to some semblance of our pre-injury life. Her wheelchair arrived, we applied for a temporary handicap placard, and started to adjust to our “new normal” that revolved around caring for Kennedi around the clock. As we ventured out, Kennedi would regularly be questioned about … Continue reading It’s Not a Lie, It’s a Prediction
