I quit the Master's program a few weeks back. Because I decided to withdraw after the midpoint, I will receive two failing grades. Knowing that I might be seen as a failure normally makes me so anxious that I continue on even when I can feel the stress of the tasks hurting me. But I... Continue Reading →
I Can Testify
2 Corinthians 12: 8-10 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s... Continue Reading →
A Hallelujah Moment, But Talk about Bad Timing!
For months I couldn't write on my blog, no matter how I tried. I seemed to have lost the passion to write. So, I decided that I wouldn't sit each day just binging on Britbox and Acorn (I sound almost British these days). I enrolled in college, and believe me, I needed all the time... Continue Reading →
Getting My Eqilibrium Back, I Hope Anyway!
My first semester of graduate school has ended with me earning the grade of A+ in two classes and a A in the third class. Not bad for a 70-year-old with a wonky memory! Thankfully, because I was able to convince the one professor who gave multiple-choice exams to allow me to write essays instead,... Continue Reading →

I have spent over a month trying to find the combination of medicines to find relief from the constant pressure and pain of chronic sinusitis, including prescriptions drugs and over-the-counter drugs prescribed by my primary care physician. I have allergies this... Continue Reading →
24-Hour Question: Would I?
From Rory's 24-Hour Blog Question: If no one ever read your blog would you still write, keep and maintain the blog or would you change the way you write so as to keep your blog and be read? Would you change your style to be read more often or would you simply take more steps... Continue Reading →
Coming to the End of a Nightmare, I Hope!
For something so small, teeth can really hurt! Three weeks ago, I awakened with a toothache. I called the dentist's office the next morning and got an appointment for the next day. No problem, as it was Orijel helped make the day liveable, although I ceased to be the rapscallion my husband loves. So, I... Continue Reading →
So Grateful to be One of Your Neighbors
"Who is my neighbor?" I have been thinking of what a contemporary answer to this question might be, if I were asked it today. I believe that the blogging community that I am blessed to participate in helps me understand what it means to be a neighbor, similar to the story told of the Good... Continue Reading →
