I Miss Fluffy Facebook

I never thought I’d miss reading a Facebook post about what someone ate for breakfast or that they’re going to brush their teeth.

But with so much hate and despair spewing out on Facebook and on every place an opinion or thought can be spewed, I long for a mundane post that someone just scooped the poop for their pup.

~ Hook (1991)


Who doesn’t want to live an incredible story? 

Authors will tell you that without conflict, you don’t have a story.

I’ve got some epic ones for you today. 

If it takes conflict to make a story, I guess we’re all living a story because we all face conflict.

Some more than others.

But of course, that just means we all have the chance to live an awfully big adventure.

Ah Lord God! Nothing is Too Difficult For You

Ah Lord God! Nothing is too difficult for You. That's our hope, joy and promise (Jeremiah 32:17) Praise Picture for the New Year (via www.JeanWilund.com)
