I Need This, God
"Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues."  Proverbs 17:28 NIV I am a decisive person. I make up my mind to do something, then do it.   I don't labor over details, what-ifs, or should I's. Like the Home Dep...

The Nightly News
I struggle with an addiction.  Sometimes it makes me sick.  Other times I'm able to push it to the back of my mind for a while.   Every time I need prayer to deny it. I am a worrier.  Mostly I worry about bad things happening to those I love. My top five wo...

SUMMER WAS HERE A MINUTE AGO Or, How A Junque Monkey Loses Track Of Time

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER Or, Five Months Ain't So Bad
The last time I blogged, time looked like this: Then, time went all warp speed  like the Millennium Falcon and now it looks like this: I kind of got a little behind on my blogging. I've had my fingers in a lot of Passionate Pies since my last post. So here'...
