I’m a lover of many things “old school.” I watch old school shows and listen primarily to old school music. And I don’t mean just the 80’s “old school.” I mean, old school. See, back in the day my mother used to have these things called “card parties.” You may […]

Old School…Music

Once I hit adulthood, I wasn’t a big holiday gatherer. I hid around the holidays with a plate or two from friends, my favorite snacks, and…marathons. Remember those? These days marathons still happen, but they’re much less popular than binge watching, where you can choose your marathon. Log on, do […]

Old School…Television

This Thanksgiving holiday, we have the pleasure of dog sitting a four-year-old Labrador retriever. He’s really sweet, but different from our older and now-mellow, Hershey.

Dog Sitting Diaries

In years past, I had a few health challenges. Unexpected. Unwarranted. (My numbers didn’t match what they said was happening.) I like good health.

Gift Dilemmas…

Well, are you? Fortified in prayer, that is. Staying ahead of the game. Not allowing so much time to pass that prayer that seems foreign. Somehow, the longer we go without prayer, the harder it is to start again. Hence, the reason folks used to encourage each other to make […]

Are you prayed up?

In corporate America, year-end reviews are upon us. Aren’t they your favorite? Not. Here’s the thing. We love to get on social media and share our best pictures, highlights of life’s celebrations, and details about our worst days. Furthermore, we welcome comments on things we share from friends, foes, and […]

Check Yourself
