I Killed Angus!

A few months ago, I bought a plant. A succulent. I have never had this kind of plant before in my life. Mind you, my mom is the one who used to grow plants (and flowers) while I was growing up. Occasionally, I would try my hand at African Violets, and I remember having a…

5 Ideas To Spark Creativity In Writing

I have so many story, article, blog, and general writing ideas floating in my mind. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed so much that I can’t even put word to paper – or computer screen. I’ve jotted down parts of a poem so I wouldn’t forget it, made notes about a topic to write about, researched some…

On Writing With Pen and Paper

I remember the days before writing on a computer was a big thing. Mind you, I’m sure it was done, after all, it was only in the 1980s. But, at least before I started using a computer for writing, paper and pens were my go to. During the mid to late 1990s, I was big…

Wednesdays Are For Writing

In The Beginning I remember when I was young and in school, we often had to do short pieces of writing for class. I don’t remember if I used to enjoy this or not, but I do remember not being very good at it. I had a difficult time coming up with something good that…

Just a short post today. Early last week I finished doing my study of the book of John in the Bible. I’d like to say I worked on it every single day, but that would be a lie. Something I noticed, as I looked back over the notes I took, was at the beginning of…

Your Sin Is Worse Than Mine…

I don’t know how many times I hear of people, and have had it said to me, that someone else’s sin is worse than whatever their sin is. It’s like people believe there is a big list ranging from number one to…however many sins there are. And on that list is ranked the least sin…

That Old Familiar Feeling…

The other night, I felt a familiar feeling begin to creep up on me. I sensed it crawling up my spine and slowly branch out across my back and over my shoulders, encircling its arms around me, tightening its vice-like grip… That old familiar feeling of anxiety was back.

New Year Blessing

We have come to that time of year again – December 31st! For many people, this is a time to reflect on the past year. Memories are often front and centre on this day as we come to an end of the final page of this chapter in our lives. We think about all the…

Remember the Reason for the Season

It’s Christmas Eve today, and like most homes at this time of year, we have had our Christmas tree up for awhile. The colourful lights glowing, decorations hanging, and the angel watching over everything. The top section of our artificial tree is leaning some, because the part it’s stuck into has a piece broken off…
