I love a good love story.  What woman doesn’t?  How many women do you know who are not curious about how a married couple met and how the man proposed?  We are all drawn to those stories that are love at first sight, the conflicting battle fought in the middle, and the happy storybook ending. […]

What a precious baby girl! …Wait. She belongs to my old college roommate? No way! …Wait. Did I miss her wedding? As I curiously stalk my old roommate on Facebook I realize I hadn’t missed anything.

Discontent with Discontentment

By on October 18, 2012 in Emotions with 0 Comments

There I was in my closet – crying.  The all too familiar pitiful scene of a mascara-stained face looking heavenward, crying out to God, not understanding why His timing hadn’t caught up with mine.
