Indiana, Kentucky or YOUR Team…It’s Just a Game!

It’s a game.  It is just a game.  Several years ago, Bernie had a friend who hated me because I liked Indiana basketball and Bobby Knight–in fact, the revelation that I loved IU was reason enough to have nothing to do with me.  Since converting to the love of  the Kentucky Wildcats, I have witnessed […]


My friends Emily and John are going to have a baby.  They are due in just a few days, and I find that in my excitement for them, I am also reliving some of the moments we experienced as new parents.  Some are so scary, while others are just so funny. Scary and funny:  Chip […]


I love basketball.  I mean, I pretty much  love everything about the sport.  I grew up watching Indiana and believing that Bobby Knight was the best coach around.  I was a kid, of course.  My daddy liked Bobby’s no-nonsense style and he laughed at his antics on the court sidelines.  As I grew up, I […]

The Human Body

I wonder about sickness.  I have been reading so much about Medical Meditation and the proven help it has been to so many people with different illnesses.  I have been reading about the body’s makeup and its ability to heal itself sometimes.  While I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, I am also […]

The Problem I Have…

Staying focused is hard for me.  Deciding what all needs to be done is difficult to nail down, but harder still is prioritizing those things.  I don’t know why that is, but I really don’t like interruptions in the middle of what I’m trying to do.  THAT probably says something really fascinating about me, don’t […]

It’s the time of year…

This is the time of year people tend to find themselves feeling especially sad or especially joyful.  When you’ve lost someone you love, it takes a lot of years to not feel sad at the special holidays and occasions.  As a child, the sad part of the holidays comes when the gifts have been opened–either […]

Squash, Roasted and Herbed

The Journey Home is a day shelter/Christian outreach here in Murfreesboro. That’s where I spend a lot of my time. Different groups come in to cook and serve our lunch each day. Today’s chef was Frank, and he fixed the best squash I’ve ever eaten. Baked on a cookie sheet, olive oil and lots of […]

Amazed at the presence of one greater than I…

Here I am…just a little thing.  I think I was pretty cute, though.  I like the way I have a smile on my face–I still try to keep one there.  My eyes seem to be sparkly and full of joy–I think they still are.  It’s amazing, isn’t it? When I was born, I was born […]

I Was Not Disappointed!

Spanish White Gazpacho.  Does it sound interesting?  It did to me, mainly because I don’t care for gazpacho and wondered how different this could be.  Sadly, many people have not tried this cool, smooth, and refreshing dish, and I believe it is leaving the menu at Max’s.  But for tonight, Chef James had some of […]
