The Passing of a Friend

Yesterday I attended the memorial of a truly good woman who was a very close friend of our family.  She was so close that I considered her my aunt.  Although I really feel that no one dies before their time, this is a woman that I wish could have stuck around a lot longer.  I learned by all the people who stood and spoke about her and their experience with her that she impacted them in great ways.  She loved, taught, inspired, and sacrificed for so many and it was a beautiful thing to witness the testimonies of friends, family, and colleagues.  One of the great things about my aunt was that no matter what she may have been going through personally, she never let it hold her back from her goals or from helping others.  Her attitude was a perfect example of how we should all be.  She was always positive and was a woman of great faith...such a great role model.  Saying goodbye to her was yet another reminder that we do not know when our time is up.  The constant messages of the service w…

24 Things to Always Remember


Get Up!

Joyce Meyer's video message for today was powerful! It's about getting beyond life's disappointments, not making excuses, and moving forward. I love these quotes... "Get up!" "If you want to have power, the self pity has gotta go!" "Everybody in God's economy has an equal opportunity."

Make it a great day!

"I'm taking my freedom
Pulling it off the shelf
Putting it on my chain
Wearing it 'round my neck
I'm taking my freedom

Living my life like it's golden

Can't take it from me
I was born into it a…
