Peace, Lord, Peace!
I think we are all exhausted. The endless stream of shootings, fallen police officers, guns, political pukings .... I know I want to turn it all off. I can't - my job literally requires me to be on social media all the time. I cannot recall a time (in my li...

Can We Be Honest?
"No. You are not wearing that. It's hideous and that's the truth." Honesty is tough, isn't it? We lie to ourselves ("I'll get to that chore later.") We lie to each other ("Sure, that looks great on you!") We'd lie to God if we thought we could get away with...

The Best Response To Criticism Is Joy
The past few weeks were rocky. An attorney decided that it was a good idea to call my Dark-Haired Daughter horrible names. As much as I tried to shield my daughter from what was swirling around her, she found out and was understandably devastated. I assured...

"A Good and Spacious Land"
Isn't that a beautiful phrase: "a good and spacious land"? It's from Exodus 3:8, as God is giving Moses his commission to help free the Israelites. Ring of Kerry, Ireland: author's photo I think it sounds like the title of a great book or story, maybe somet...

Dammit. Did it again....
"Pushing Back the Darkness" - artist Gwen Meharg I did something stupid yesterday. (I did a lot of stupid things yesterday, but I'd like to focus on just one.) I saw this funny meme on FB. I have a friend who would also think it funny. It gently poked fun o...

Work Notes
I neglect my little blog here. Mostly, it's because I have a blog that I'm solely responsible for at work. And sometimes, it's just because I'm lazy. Today, I'm being lazy. Please go to my work blog and read a couple of things. The first one might get you p...

Be Careful What You Pray For
I am weak and sinful. (Aren't we all? The key is recognizing this in ourselves and not just others.) I pray. I don't pray well, nor do I pray often enough. But I pray. I have been praying for persecuted Christians everywhere. I see pictures in my head of th...

Where is Christ?
My worldly life is one of ownership: a house, a car, furniture. I have way too many shoes (but I'll keep on buying them!) and a lot of jewelry, which tell a story about me. I love clothing and fashion. My spiritual life is Franciscan. Yes, I acknowledge: I ...

Mother's Day ... And why I don't always celebrate
Unless you're living in Outer Mongolia, you've been inundated with Mother's Day ads. Apparently, we moms are dying to have buckets of perfume, a shopping spree, expensive handbags and a multitude of other "things" that will prove a child's love. Of course, ...

Dr. Ruhlig and his staff are suberb! He has taken care of our family for 15+ years. They are great with kids, his rates are very reasonable, and it is easy to get in for emergencies.

This man frightened my daughter. He spent more time explaining his record-keeping system than attending to her. I would not recommend their services to anyone.

I have been here twice, both times for pedicures. I will not go back. The first time was okay. The second time I went, the man doing the pedicure seemed liked he could hardly be bothered. He was distracted the entire time, rarely spoke to me but engaged in conversation with many others in the shop. At one point, he tore off a part of my toenail. When I yelped, "That hurt!" he replied, "No, it didn't." Really?? Bad service, incompetent staff and unfriendly atmosphere. Nothing here to like.
