Hey y’all,

I’ve been busy at a two day work shop on writing essays, so needless to say my brain has been taxed a bit, but while factional information has been depleted, my fictional abilities were begging to be used. So, below is a story I hope you enjoy. 😉 A bit silly and little childish, but I find it funny. Hope you enjoy.

The Dragon Show

            Malory Janet seems like a normal girl. She goes to school, she does her homework and she does her chores. Of course Mrs. Macgregory new otherwise. Malory visited Mrs. Macgregory, the little old lady, who lived on Malory’s street. Her house on the outside looked like a little old ladies house, with flowers in front of the porch, but inside there were exotic plants everywhere. Covering the walls where paintings of Lions, beavers, Kangaroos and gorillas. (more…)

You know what drives me crazy? unanswered questions. If they hang unanswered long enough, I start not even caring what the answer is. I just want the puzzle to be complete. The story to be finished.

It’s a risk to do a lot of things.

I don’t like taking risks.

I like knowing all my options and if I have to do something about it, I’ll pick the path of least risk. Better safe than sorry and all that.

Problem: The path of least risk is not always where God wants you. (more…)

You that commandment God made? “Honor your Mother and Father.”

Yah….I need to work on that one.

Not only is it in the Old Testament, It’s rephrase in the New:

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” -Ephesians 6:1-3

It’s pretty clear this needs to be followed. How do we honor/respect our parents? (more…)

Here it is,

Father’s Day.

I woke up this morning to my Dad bringing in a ladder. He was vacuuming the high ledges and the high walls. The vacuum hangs by a plant hanger.

I smiled.

This Is My Dad. (more…)

Some people when they think of summer in Florida they picture a sandy, breezy beach with the sun setting or maybe a bunch of kids laughing in a perfectly green backyard with a pool nearby.  Not me. Boiling humidity, that shade can’t cure, comes with the sun, but of course first comes the lightning and gray skies.

The other day, it was the lightning. It flashed every other second. Like popcorn….with a light show.

Needless to say, our computers where unplugged, so I had plenty of time for reading. To me, the days when it drizzles in and out all day are the perfect days for reading. Good background noise I guess. Or is it the fact I think rain is magical?

Anyway, I thought I’d share some quotes from my favorite books, as well as from one I’ve been reading. The age range of some of these are considered to be children’s, but to put it in my favorite author’s words:

“A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not (more…)

I’ve been having a struggle lately. I don’t want to get one the balance beam.

Why God, why? I don’t want to do as he says. So I make up excuses…

Because I need to focus on my school,

because I’m an introvert, not much of a talker,

because it’s too uncomfortable,

(God wouldn’t have us do the uncomfortable, would he?) (more…)
