Photo taken by Cheryl Larkin The only way to learn forgiveness Is to experience betrayal and then choose to open your heart anyways. - Lissa Rankin, M.D. I came across this quote one day and it really resonated with me and touched me. I have been going through a struggle to forgive lately. I didn’t want to forgive this person because I felt he didn’t deserve my forgiveness. The crazy thing is that not forgiving him was hurting me way Continue reading read more »
Last week our pastor gave a sermon that not only had great principles, but even a statement that seemed off the cuff. Its still resonating with me, a week or so later. You can hang on, or move on. I tend to be a black or white perspective person, so this quote got me. There  read more »
I cannot believe it's Wednesday already and we are half way through September..where is 2013 going?Today's Bible study with Joyce Meyer is on celebrating life, enjoying it and focusing on the good in life, the positive things instead of the negative, seeing the good in others, celebrating ourselves, forgiveness without holding account of sins, not worrying about rebuilding the trust.

Good morning WORLD!!!
I am sitting here with coffee next to me, more to be had in coffee pot. Been up since 6 a.m. as usual.

It's really getting crazy, I made a list of people who I have been holding things ag... read more »

And when we're in the right relationship, we feel a sense of joy, pe... read more »
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. ~ Mahatma GandhiFor some people, saying “I’m sorry” are two of the most difficult words to utter. And while we all have disagreements and arguments from time-to-time, life is too short to hold grudges. Although arguments may seem monumental at the time, they're often trivial in the grand scheme of things. So why not take the high road... be the first to apologize.... bury the hatchet and let bygones be bygones. Kiss and make up... ev... read more »
I was just thinking about some experiences from my past. You know, as we journey through life it is inevitable that we will be hurt from time to time. When someone hurts us, whether they did so intentionally or not, our first impulse is to lash out at them. We want revenge. But Jesus says [...] read more »
There are so many problems with the current thinking about solutions to the student debt crisis. The Green Party is now another part of the problem. Why you ask? Because the Green Party doesn't rely on what is already available to protect students. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution says bankruptcy laws that are not uniform are unconstitutional. Yet Jill Stein of the Green Party says:
