Muddy: Clear Talk and A Good Father

Muddy: Clear Talk and A Good Father One of the reasons I don’t watch the news or venture far off my own Facebook page is because of what I call the muddy bleed. I have been busying myself with watercolors this week.  And I had an epiphany, or maybe it was just a sinus headache. Either way, I thought I would share.   In watercolor media, the bleed is my favorite part of the art.  I love when the colors magically …

Miraculous Hiney Healing, Waiting, and Other Mysteries

Miraculous Hiney Healing, Waiting, and Other Mysteries I didn’t want to tell you this. The thing is, I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.  I will pray for you, please pray for me.

Honestly, they don’t call me “Sunshine Rain” for nothing. So, the post, “Please Stop Praying …

“Dude!?!?!” and Other Inappropriate “Prayers” I Say to Jesus

“Dude!?!?!” and Other Inappropriate Things I Say to Jesus Here among the humans, which call me mommy, mom, Baby, Jami-Jo, and ‘Muuuuther,” insert premenstrual 16-year-old insolence, I am well known. They know. And the stuff they know, some of you know too. Because I am known for being… candid. Perhaps too much so, according to the one who calls me, “Baby.” However, he’s too quiet.  Which is why we make a great couple.  He rarely says anything, and I say …
