Sunday Thought …

I realize there is not alliteration going on with this post, but I have been thinking about something I have advised others NOT to do and yet I have found myself doing - that is, "snooping" on Facebook (not really "snooping" as much as just LOOKING) and inadvertently comparing myself and my life with others … Continue reading Sunday Thought …

“Tautology” Tuesday – “Know Thyself …”

Those of us with chronic illness often tend to be incredibly introspective - I think this is in and of itself a sort of "tautology" insofar as when we are very ill, we cannot really "do" much but think. I know this is particularly true when I am experiencing a severe flare - I cannot … Continue reading “Tautology” Tuesday – “Know Thyself …”

AT ANY RATE! I believe it was on my YouTube channel … Continue reading ‘THINK ABOUT IT’ THURSDAY!

The “Action” of “Acceptance” and the “Action” Inherent in “Faith;” Why God “Doesn’t Give Us More Than We Can Handle” is a Fallacy

Today I went back to visit a friend in Nazareth; I had promised her I would go to church with her so after visiting for a few minutes, we walked up the block to "church." *Funny side note: in Nazareth, there are two "St. John's" churches located literally across the street from one another. "Locals" … Continue reading The “Action” of “Acceptance” and the “Action” Inherent in “Faith;” Why God “Doesn’t Give Us More Than We Can Handle” is a Fallacy
