  • On Being Thankful

    11/27/2014 7:54:03 AM, by JOHNTJ1

    I'd like to tell you that I am grateful and thankful each and every day of my life for all the blessings I've received over the past 61.5 years but if I did I'd be telling you a bald faced lie. Maybe I should amend that statement and say that I'm not consciously grateful and thankful. It sorta... Read more

  • Right Here, Right Now

    11/24/2014 8:47:46 AM, by JOHNTJ1

    "You are free to believe what you choose, and what you do attests to what you believe." Just between me, you and the gate post I hate reading that line. It pops up in my morning reading 3 or 4 times a year. Maybe Jesus said it better: "By their fruits you shall know them." Honestly ... Read more

  • Wearing Blinders

    11/20/2014 8:38:30 AM, by JOHNTJ1

    Do you know the reason they put blinders on race horses? It's so they don't become distracted or discouraged by the performance of the other horses on the track. They can only see their finish line and run towards it. Yes, I know, we're not animals but the process bears some examination. ... Read more

  • Staying the Same Isn't a Bad Thing

    11/18/2014 9:44:33 AM, by JOHNTJ1

    I didn't lose any weight last week but I didn't gain any weight either. A few years ago this would have devastated me, but it dawned on me that I was looking at it through a "glass half empty" mind set. I did SOMETHING right this past week because if I hadn't been careful what went in my mouth... Read more

    It's a scary realization. It's the moment you discover that most of what goes on in your life is about 100 millimeters beyond your control. The things you spend your life working so hard, to lasso, hog tie and stow away have been and always will be elusive. Read more

  • Changes

    11/8/2014 6:19:41 PM, by TRUEBLUEMOON

    Almost 2 weeks ago my husband left for Boot Camp with the Army. I'm adjusting to being alone. It's hard and lonely and frustrating at times. I'm not sure how some military spouses do this for 9-12 month deployments. I guess at some point I might find out firsthand. However, one thing that... Read more
