Just Choose

Just Choose Just Choose I can get overwhelmed pretty easily. It seriously does not take much. Busy seasons of my life just scare the pants off me! It is not that I do not think that God cannot help me. It is just how I let the busyness impact me. I can become grumpy,...

Just Breathe

Failure is not Final

Failure is not Final Failing stinks.   I really don’t like it.  It frustrates me.  I feel like I get stuck you know, like spinning tires in mud – as if I can’t move forward again.  My gears get all gummed up with self-pity.  What is truly sad is that I would...
