Don’t Be So Busy You Miss the Jewels of Life

  Sometimes I feel like my life is insane & crazy busy. I work a full time job, help my husband with his business, run my own small business, write a blog, take care of our home, & all sorts of other little things.

The Leper or Townsfolk: Which Will You Be?

I’ve continued on with reading multiple chapters a day from different books of the Bible (I’ll admit, as a lot has come up over the past week, I have fallen behind where I want to be).

Thoughtful Thursday: Faith & Love- the Two Noses of Life

So, I have been sick for more than a week- some type of crazy sinus junk. Let’s just say it hasn’t been pleasant. I haven’t been able to smell much lately because of it.
