Mission:  Day 10 of unemployment… a lesson in HUMILITY
p>It was just 10 days ago, when I got the call that it would be my last day… Now, after the dust has settled and all loose ends have been tied up.. I am left still feeling peaceful and hopeful. yet the last few days I have noticed some unsettling feelings…   Everything that was comfortable is now gone.  I feel like I am in a new place. But not so new.. its familiar. Not the confines of my comfy company vehicle, comfy salary, comfy schedule and comfy life…. but in a place much like a wilderness.  I little foggy and unclear how to traverse this path… Yet, I don’t feel lost or scared… because I have been here before.  I sure do not...

Mission: Finding My Way: Day 3 “Website, Check!”
p>So, as you may know yesterday was my Birthday.  It was a blessing that I didn’t have to work!   My most favorite Birthdays are the days when I have the whole day to do as I please and do not have to be on anyone else’s agenda!  That is true luxury this day and age!   I did lots of things that bring me joy! Slept in until 9am.  Bake some yummy Protein Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bars.  Took the longest shower possible.  Did some job  searching, bill paying and resume making. Got caught up on laundry and stayed in my bathrobe until 3pm.  Made some tutu’s and flower headbands for little baby Miah who is almost a week old!! (I will post the...

Mission: Laid off, now what? Finding My Way. Day 1.
p>John 14:27 (The Message) 25-27“I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught.” And that’s why I feel the way I do. I am amazed with the concern and outpouring of support. So many are saying, “Miss, how are you? are you ok?  I’m praying...

It’s cold again… Mother Nature- a tease or a reminder?

It’s cold again… Mother Nature- a tease or a reminder?
p>So many woke up today not excited about what was going on outside. It’s cold again. “Dang you Mother Nature, You tease…” (taken from someones facebook status this morning). Here in Ohio we are expecting ice and snow today and tomorrow. Temperatures are back down to freezing and we are reminded that it is Winter still. This past week we have been refreshed with a day of 65 degrees, 60 degrees and a 43 degree day full of sunshine and promise. Something about this brief reprieve of cold temperatures, motivates people to do more, think more about the desires of their heart, get more done and become a little more alive! But now that it is over,...
