For two nights, we have been without power.
I have suffered through the heat (and anybody who knows me knows that I hate heat.
I use my A/C year-round.) I have not suffered through the heat because I have to, but because I'm trying to teach myself how to deal with less than desirable circumstances.
Some may know this while others may not.
My mom had open heart surgery in 2011 due to a faulty valve which created heart murmurs.
Heart murmurs are abnormal flow patterns. A valve that is not faulty is supposed to work as a door to prevent the backward flow of blood into the heart.
My freshman year at Delta State University, I took Dr. Elizabeth Sarcone for English. I hated that class.
For three reasons- One, the obvious, it was not an easy class and she graded extremely hard.
She would catch every single tingle wingle mistake. Lol....reason number two, she was obnoxiously sarcastic.
As I was cleaning this morning, I found myself cleaning like my mom – behind the refrigerator, inside the oven, inside the microwave inside the cabinets, behind the couch, under the pillows on the couch, and inside drawers.
Do you all remember Joseph, the son of Jacob in the Bible?
Joseph had been having dreams that he would one day be King. He was excited about the dreams...as he should have been. He did what most of us do- get excited, then run and tell everyone what God has revealed to us.
Do you all remember Hannah in the Bible?
She was one of the wives of Elkanah. Elkanah’s other wife was Peninnah.
Hannah had no children and Penninah did...and Penninah, with her mean self, taunted Hannah because of this.
Penninah knew how badly Hannah wanted kids, and I can imagine how badly Hannah felt.
