Don’t Be Happy With Who You Are

“Be happy with who you are!” You’ve probably heard or been told this many times. What I’m going to say will be contrary to this, but try to be open-minded. First of all, I think it is good to be content with what you have. Constantly striving to get more, make more money, and neverContinue reading “Don’t Be Happy With Who You Are”

Do You Remember the Time…?

When you try to recall an event or you are asked about a time from your past, why are some memories more easily recollected than others? Significant memories are tied to physiological and/or emotional reactions. If you want to make memories that last, you must make as many connections as possible, whether visual, physical/kinesthetic, auditory,Continue reading “Do You Remember the Time…?”

“Gift Card”

I don’t normally post a blog on the weekends, and especially when I’ve already posted in the same week, but I was inspired by a writing prompt on MMA Storytime. When I was younger, I gave my dad T-shirts and underwear for Christmas. He is a farmer and these were practical gifts that he wouldContinue reading ““Gift Card””

A Poem for Christmas

Angelic messenger addressing the blessed  Mary, aware of the heir she carries in her Womb. There’s no room for whom is proven to be our King. He’ll end dominion of sin and then we’ll sing Of his glory. We’ll orate the story Each year, cheering “It’s here!” but we’re Drifting. Sifting through gifts, not upliftingContinue reading “A Poem for Christmas”
