I have had a deep seeded faith in G-d my entire life. I was raised Catholic, until I was nine years old, when my mother got ‘saved‘ in a little assembly of G-d church, and moved me to a new denomination. I always felt that the ritualism of the Catholic church suited me more than the loud chaos of the ASG and Pentecostal churches we were a part of there after. I always felt like a square peg in a round hole. Continue reading
I am an animal lover, have been my entire life. I’m not talking about just cats and dogs, I’m talking Noah’s Ark. I grew up wanting to be a Zoologist, and until I was 17 and realized I would have to euthanize some, it was my plan; fast forward a lifetime later, I still would happily run an animal sanctuary, if I had the money, which I do not.

It has been over a year since my last post. Why is that? Well, it could be due to our move to Kentucky and all the life changes that have gone with that, it could be due to issues with my health and diet that I just do not care to share. All of the things that have gone on in the last year are things that would be great to write about, but someone gets hurt no matter which side I write towards. Continue reading
Do I have one?
I read this in my devotional this morning:
To find joy in this day, you must live within its boundaries.
This really hit home with another book I am currently reading The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod, I’ll provide a review when I finish it. Hal talks about having a reason to get up in the morning, ones raison d’être if you will. He says that you can have more than one, but you have at least one, and to be honest, I am at a loss to figure out what mine is. I mean I can go with the basic one he states, to be the best me I can be, but I just feel that there is more to it, at least for me. Continue reading
Enough talk, it’s time to see some action!
I have spent the last several months reading everything I have been able to get my hands on, and watching documentary after documentary. I’ve been up and down on the emotional roller coaster, yet again, with how I’m so sick and tired of not getting everything I need from the medical field, but even more so about how industries with enough money can influence what we hear from the government on things that really matter. *sigh* I’m not going to go into a rant here, on this, I promise, at least not this post.

Do your actions line up with your words?
Gandhi is credited with saying “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”, and although I did not personally hear him say it, I have never questioned its authenticity. Gandhi lived his entire life in a way that actually brought about change. But what does it actually mean to ‘be the change’? How is it even applicable in this day and age? The answer to this can be found in another quote from Gandhi, “To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” Continue reading
is the first step in the right direction
I have too much stuff, I’ve already admitted that I like having my stuff, and I know that my husband would be much happier living in a place where we only had the stuff we need. So I’m doing what I can to deal with my attachments to these things, and really work on getting rid of stuff. Continue reading
