Temper Tantrum With God

Temper Tantrum With God

It finally happened…I had my temper tantrum with God.   I remember a friend asking me quite some time ago, “Haven’t you ever had a temper tantrum with God?”  I was taken aback at the question. I grew up thinking that you shouldn’t get mad at God – that getting...

The Difference a Decade (or Three) Makes

The Difference a Decade (or Three) Makes

I was thinking recently of some of the ways I'm different now than what I was like as a child.  Some things haven't changed.  For example, my love of all things chocolate, caramel or peanut butter hasn't changed whatsoever (bring it on!!)  Conversely, my negative...

"What would you do, if you weren't afraid to fail?" I've always found encouragement in that quote, perhaps because for me, fear of failure has nagged me like a gnat since I was a small child. I'd push those thoughts aside only for them to fly right back in, and buzz...

CHANGE: The GOOD, The BAD, and The UGLY

I still cannot believe that it is already 2012! I've always heard that time passes more quickly the older you get, but this is ridiculous. I can still recall putting the Christmas decorations away from a year ago as if it were last week (perhaps because that's when we...
