    The Power Of Coincidence

    I was on my online dating website the other day and I received a contact from an attractive man. So I responded to him. Ironically, he looks like an older version of my ex-husband. My ex-husband was an IT executive when I met him. We got engaged while he was still working a...

    God, Needs To Stop Speaking In Code.

    I do trust God to guide me, but he has to stop speaking to me in code. He really does need to be a little more clear and direct. He needs to break down his message in steps. Because, right now, I am not sure what to do first, and in this case, with the current series of events...

    Everything happens for a reason. Often we don't understand the why when we are going through it, but later it becomes clear. I trust in God to guide me. I should be dead a few times over at this point in my life. I've both lived to die, and been saved from terrible fates. It's...

    I get so impatient, so doubtful sometimes...walking on this path.  It isn't that I doubt my faith or my journey.  I doubt myself.  I become so impatient to get to the next great thing.  When my grandmother was alive we visited about this quite often.  She had told me one...
