Just venting. Sigh. Sjogren's Syndrome + Hashimoto's Thyroiditis + Dysautonomia/Autonomic Nerve Damage + Bipolar Disorder II + Interstitial Cystitis + IBS / SIBO + Histamine Intolerance / possible Mast Cell Activation Syndrome + Structural body damages + who knows what else = pretty hard to bear sometimes. Acute insomnia 2 nights in a row (Bipolar … Continue reading Just venting again (sigh.)
A tale of three pregnancies and one healing soul.
At age 18, I left my childhood church thinking there must be something wrong with me and I could not be a Christian even though I wanted to. That is a long story, and one you can read at my earlier post about my personal testimony if you are interested. At age 20 I got … Continue reading A tale of three pregnancies and one healing soul.
Angels Don’t Sing?? / Christmas
Edited 12/27/21: I am in the process of studying this topic about whether angels sing or only speak. I will be editing my thoughts on this after more study. Job 38:7 is noteworthy. Apparently angels sang at Creation. Four living creatures and 24 elders sing in heaven in Revelation 5:8-10 (but are they angels?). God … Continue reading Angels Don’t Sing?? / Christmas
I am astounded by how quickly the seasons come and go. The older I get the shorter the seasons get. As I was out walking in the fall sunshine on Friday, observing the falling leaves, I wondered what happened to sun bathing season and how I did so little of it in the summer.

I was taught some things about God generally and believed it from a young age. My childhood in a large family was complicated and not ideal. I was … Continue reading My Story

This topic came up a while back in an online Bible study I am doing on Matthew, and it has come up again today on the topic of forgiveness. One of my strongest bents toward sin is to want to hurt people back when they hurt me. And to want to get overly emotional in … Continue reading How to Overcome Anger and Hurt
The War Effort
It's been a while since I've published anything here. Most of the things on my heart over the last year or so since the Pandemic and political upheaval have occurred were not what God was calling me to write about or publish on. But this has struck me and I do feel God wants me … Continue reading The War Effort
Here is a picture of one of my favorite keepsake treasures. It is a Bible page marker that was crocheted by my grandmother. Although I don't use it as a bookmark, I keep it in my closet and see it daily as I dress and prepare for my day. I clearly remember when my mother … Continue reading Grandmothers
Invisible things and fear
Well, I certainly never saw the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic coming, nor its US/world economic consequences, nor shortages of supplies, and especially not the social distancing/self-isolation required as a responsible response to the virus threat that may be coming. Who ever thought churches would close services due to a disease threat? Etc. I am reminded of … Continue reading Invisible things and fear
Rejoicing in Christ
One theme I write about often is understanding and embracing my progressive sanctification in Christ, being transparent about my sinfulness in my old flesh and about my frustrations with my slow progress in Christ. Today I turn the coin to the other side, and I want to write about my rejoicing in and praising God … Continue reading Rejoicing in Christ
