Gateway to Christmas...

The days are going by so fast.  Thanksgiving was fun.  We had guests: an elderly couple from our church (who ended up peeing in the hallway cuz he couldn't make it to the bathroom in time!) plus Jim's son and his family: a wife and three red-headed girls.  I plan on posting them in the picture.  Since the girls are active, I...

Thanksgiving again! I'm sure I mention every year that Thanksgiving brings with it a lot of birthdays.  It starts with PraizeOP's on November 3 and continues from there.  My sister-in-law, two of my sons, a grandson, ending with myself on the 25th, which this year is two days after Thanksgiving.  I kind of consider my birthay as...

Have you ever wakened up of a morning and been just so happy you could hardly stand it?  That is how I began this day.  Just really, really happy.  I tried looking at my day and then my life to see if there was something special that I could attribute it to, but found nothing. Of course it is that time of year.  Thanksgiving...

              I am really in a quandary.  It breaks my heart to see day after day go by with very few people using Praize.   Everyone is plenty willing to post their views on Facebook.  What is different about Praize?  Is it too Christian?  (How...

Fall has come! It is October. The air is turned off and the doors are opened.  The thing I hate about it is Halloween!  Yesterday I saw a little person walking across the street.  I couldn't tell if it was a female or a male because it was rather short of height, perhaps four feet.  Just walking on the sidewalk across the...

"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." Galatians 6:7‭-&#...

It seems that lately people have chosen to use Praize as an advertising venue for creative writing students. Right off the top, this is against the Praize Terms of Service which can be found at www.praize.com/terms.  The rule is #10, but if you are a new user, please read all of them.   While you are learning your way around Praize,...

Since I wanted to write something and nothing came to mind, I thought it would be a good time to say thank you to those of you who have been so faithful over the years! I have totally enjoyed your friendship and my life would not be the same if not for knowing you.  Years have gone by and we have all changed... hopefully for the better! I do...

Never a Dull Moment...

God bless you, my friends!  As a Christian, there is never a dull moment...  I am not sure whether some of this comes from the enemy or from my beloved Abba.  Either way, I give full authorization to Abba to do whatever is necessary to take me through it. You may not know that I recently went to the hospital.  I do not want to ...

Some of you know that over the past couple of years I have been ill.  Also,, over the past couple of years, my computer program has apparently decided that I need more knowledge in order to type a blog. We have come a long way from the old typewriter and taking shorthand.   I loved using the typewriter.  I was quite fast so was ...

Here we are at July 4th again!  It does seem to come around more quickly each year. I had  been wanting to write a blog for a while, but for the usual reasons had not gotten to it.  I'm sure you have the same "usual reasons", so I don't need to tell you what mine are. Right now I have to learn how to use this computer...

I want to apologize for my delays in writing blogs lately.  One would think it could be done without a lot of consideration...  you know...  just sit down and write.  At least that is what I thought when I first began blogging so many years ago.  And for a while, that is just what it was.  I began "A Day in the Life...

I have had much to think about lately, and that is exactly what I have done: thought about it.  I have come to no conclusions.  Only  one thing keeps popping its head up and that is this:  Going to a Christian church does not make me a Christian; going to a Catholic church will not make me a Catholic; and tonight, if I should...

I want to apologize for being gone so long.  Several weeks ago I fell on my neighbor’s walkway and seriously damaged my right arm and my right ribcage.  It is still not completely healed, but at least I am able to type a little.  My entire arm was damaged, and over time turned a beautiful purple red tone.  After a while,...

I have to admit, I love living in Arizona in the winter.  How can you even call it winter when the lowest temperatures are in the low sixties?  My winter days are divided between days I can sit out in the sun in the back yard and days when it is just a little too cold or cloudy!  Such huge decisions! LOL   People tell me ...

  How often do you write a blog?  How often do you THINK about writing a blog?  Do you think about it and don’t do anything?  We have some of the most awesome blog writers on Praize.   Several are SO faithful to write regularly.  Unfortunately, I am not one of them.  I used to be.  I don’t...

     Every new year I think about this, and often in between.  I wonder why do we go on with Praize?  What is being accomplished?  I see that new members sign up almost daily.  And then what do they do?  I don’t know…      I look at the forums on the home page.  I ...

Thanksgiving is almost here!!!  And I am SO excited.  This will be different from any we have ever had before.  As a child, we always went to my mother’s sister’s in-laws for dinner every year.  As a child, it seemed like a lot of people, and most of them were adults.  That was where I learned many things about ...

We recently had Hurricane Matthew off the east coast of the United States.  The damage that developed from it was not nearly as bad as what was predicted.  Why? Because we prayed.  Prayer works! So now we come to the election... What more is there to say?  As far as I am concerned, it has all been said.  Really, I...
