Surprise Someone!

How long has it been since you have given someone a good surprise? The kind that takes planning and a big dollop of sneakiness! Well, I suggest you put your thinking cap on and plan something right away. How about a surprise visit to unexpecting family members? That sounds like a plan! I cannot wait to see the looks on their faces. I just hope they don’t drop dead from the shock. Morbid me, again. Good luck y’all!


The Wind

The town in which I live is notorious for its wind. It is full-on Winter here and so when that wind blows (and it blows harshly), stepping outside can be painful. As a result, if you  have no pressing reason to leave your home, you simply do not. This has been my life for a while now and it can bring on some strong emotions.

Here is a song about some of those emotions, as fitting as the title suggests.
It is a great one…



This morning it came to me: boy have I been through a lot. What does that mean? Well, I have seen and done many things in my life on this planet (Hell, off this planet…). But I rarely give these things much recognition. I simply put my head down, nose to the grindstone, and continue on. There is still so much that I want to do and see and life at the moment has shackles on me. The irony is, these shackles will set me free! If you can figure that one out, maybe you are in the same boat. Regardless, life is FRUITFUL and ever-expanding in my view; the more I do and see, the more there is to do and see. And I will continue to love and pray, as always, but my scope is expanding, because the narrow just does not work. To be free, you have to believe you are free. To be fine, you have to believe that one day you will be fine. Or maybe you already are fine — TODAY.
