Reading & Writing






Words spoken and written are the building blocks of life.

It’s important to read not only to function in today’s society but also because reading develops your mind and your imagination.

Being articulate and well-spoken is of great help in any profession, and knowing that you can speak to higher-ups with self-confidence can be an enormous boost to your self-esteem.

Happy Spring!

Listening to God

A dear friend gave me a beautiful pair of earrings a few weeks ago. For the past few days I have been looking for them and while doing so I organized my entire jewelry cabinet and all of my dresser drawers.

Last night after searching  everywhere I could think of, I prayed. I prayed I would wake up and know where they were. I thought if I were going to lose something, why these?  They are not only pretty, but also special to me because of the beautiful person who sent them to me.

This morning after having coffee, I thought about the earrings. I thought maybe they could be in one of my blue jeans pockets in the laundry basket.  I was sidetracked  all morning by phone calls, and the internet.  I waited all morning and much of the afternoon  before looking under the bed and everywhere else I could think of except the one place  I had in the back of my mind from this morning.

Finally, I went into the laundry room and found the jeans,searched  the pocket, and there they were! I was really not surprised,  and I should have known they were there since the moment I had the thought early this morning.  I was thankful.

I am reminded today, when we ask God to provide us with answers, we have to listen. We should not ignore what he is telling us.  When we hear his answer we have to follow through and be grateful. God does answer prayer, big and small.

Matthew 21:22 “And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Rest in Peace Harper Lee

“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”  Harper Lee

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Southern writer is that her book has withstood the tests of time. It’s why To Kill a Mockingbird is still assigned in almost every high school in America.
