Are you nice? Or are you kind?
Posted by missnicole03
Something I am working on myself because I tend to be unfriendly at times. I believe there is a difference in nice and being kind. I am not nice. I will flat out tell you this up front, but I am kind. I have compassion and because of that I know that being nice is fleeting, but kindness is forever. You can claim to be nice, but are you truly nice? Or are you nice until you get your way? -- I tend to be this way often. I have a bad habit of using people to get what...Read More
From Ashes of Pity into Beauty of Purpose by Debra Gray-Elliott
Posted by Nina

Every second of every day a woman has an abortion. Every second of every day a woman has to live with the emotional turmoil of her decision. Forty years ago at the age of sixteen Debra had an abortion changing her forever.

 

From Ashes of Pity into Beauty of Purpose brings emotionally charred women out of the pits of fire, through the ashes into the beauty of purpose. With the direction of God, hurting women weather through the painful journeys, become women of spiritual beauty, find God’s purpose, and learn to live again.

Half a Rainbow

Half a Rainbow, the Morning after a Summer Storm

by Joan Leotta

Walking down to get my morning paper,

I glanced upward into a barely lit sky

still tremulous with dark

 

streaky clouds from the

previous night’s storm.

I spotted a rainbow

 

springing up from the river

running behind the neighbor’s

house across the street.

 

Bow of color bent over the marsh,

its tail end hidden by a still forming

new set of storm clouds.

 

I ran...Read More

Forgiveness 101

Forgiveness 101

 
 

Forgiveness...it's such an easy thing to do, right? Just say you forgive someone for something, then forget about it. It's so simple!

Or is it?

I had to forgive someone. Yet I had to  be  forgiven by this someone as well. To be honest, that rankled me. I'd done my best and messed up- but it wasn't on purpose! Why should I take any of the blame and be treated like that?

But there's the rub- I had to see things from  the other person's  perspective....Read More

Help Sheri Diaz as she battles cervical cancer

My name is Sheri Diaz.  I am 46, live in Spring, Texas, and have been working as a Medical Assistant for the past 3 years.  I recently got the shock of my life with the diagnosis of cervical cancer.  I went in for a routine pap smear and the results indicated that something wasn't right.  About two weeks later, I went in and had a biopsy done and all three samples came back as having cancer cells in them.
