Hope for the Hurting

FINDING SIGNIFICANCE

FINDING SIGNIFICANCE

The media has given us countless story lines about misfits.  Just think of Rudolph...the reindeer with the shiny nose who was laughed at and not allowed to play in all the reindeer games.  Or what about that lovable, if not clueless Charlie Brown.  Within his own...

ONE OF GOD’S GREATEST GIFTS

In my estimation, I would have to say that friendship is one of God's greatest gifts. I just spend an extended weekend with a long time friend and it just felt like new life was breathed into me! It was comfortable and easy.  No expectations.  I didn't even have...

HURTING PEOPLE, HURT PEOPLE

HURTING PEOPLE, HURT PEOPLE

I couldn't tell you when or where I heard it, but long ago I heard the saying "Hurting people hurt people."  In my line of work, I see many hurting people.  The trouble is, the kinds of wounds that walk through my door for the most part aren't physical.  They are...

CONFIDENCE IN THE MAKING

CONFIDENCE IN THE MAKING

THE GIFT OF MEMORIES

THE GIFT OF MEMORIES

Heavy sigh... The holidays are over. Christmas and New Years have come and gone, and we have started another year, 2012. Our visit with my in-laws was another one we will cherish. I love watching them interact with my family. My husband actually enjoys the tasks on...

Merry…Wedding!?

Merry…Wedding!?

Aaaah. The week after Christmas, before a brand new year begins. It seems that just about anyone I saw or spoke to this week I'd ask "How was your Christmas?" followed by, "Are you ready for the New Year?" The responses were varied, although all were positive. "It was...

Unlikely Souvenirs

This was one trip I was totally unprepared for. No packing list. No suitcases out a week in advance. No researching excursions. For that matter, no idea where I was going aside from a plane headed to Ft. Lauderdale to a cruise ship to head out to sea. People asked,...
