Be Still: Seriously, Y’all Need to Calm Down Be Still and try to calm down.  I completely lost it this morning.  Completely.

“I Told You So” Sayeth Sidney & the Lord “I told you so.”  This is my latest mantra.  Unfortunately, it is accompanied by Randy Travis’ 1987 country hit, “I Told You So.”  Which brings back some 1987 memories, I would rather not recount.   But enough about me.   I have this aunt, she is my dad’s only baby sister.  The fourth of five children, she is the eternal hippie.  Not long ago she was sitting at my parents’ kitchen table braiding …

Three Prayer Truths: He Answered

Three Prayer Truths: He Answered If you were going to pray a big prayer, what would you ask for?  I know my next big prayer, and I know it is already answered.   Yes, I know, this sounds lofty.   But for the better part of seven months, my big prayer was for wisdom.   I chased it like a madwoman.  And while it sounds even loftier than the last statement, my prayer was answered.   Here is what I won’t do.  I will …
