I don’t know about you but for me it doesn’t take much for my focus to shift, and before you know it, I’m plummeting. The Bible reveals Satan as a roaring lion seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). I love looking up word synonyms and when I looked up devour I happened across two … Continue reading “MEOW”
I’m very thankful for friends and family sending out such sweet birthday greetings, not to mention a wonderful husband that makes sure I have a very special day! I’ve had a blast getting a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, a glazed & a pumpkin-filled croissant from Burney’s Sweets & More besides eating part of my … Continue reading Celebrating Life (Ending no dairy, no sugar fast)

Paying a visit to … Continue reading Ten Thousand Little Acts
