Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.

Two Are Better Than One!

Two Are Better Than One

Good morning, beautiful people!  I trust that you had a great weekend and reveled in the resurrection of our Lord yesterday. What a wonderful revelation to know that Jesus overcame the grave. Not even death could hold him down. Let that truth settle into your soul as you think about where you are today and the vision it takes to fully walk in your purpose.

Are you looking at your situation and thinking that there’s no way out of the rut you’ve found yourself in or the pit you can’t climb out of? I ask you to imagine the abundant life that God has planned for you and to connect to the only one who can do all things but fail–almighty God, our rescuer and deliver.

Today as I reflect on the countless times he has rescued me, I’m also reminded of the woman with the blood issue in the…

Harsh Reality!

HarsH ReaLiTy

Sometimes it feels like life is an endless road of wanting to be accepted. After your family it begins when you comprehend the concept of friendship and with it the pain and harsh reality that not everyone has the same amount of friends in the world. For some who find it hard to form bonds on this planet, this realization comes much quicker than for others. I think regardless of how popular we are there are times at night, when we are alone, that we feel an alienation from everyone else in the world. This includes the ones we love, no matter how strong those bonds might be, for we are human and have those moments. With the severing of the umbilical cord comes a very real release into a world that will often times distrust or hate us. And so we spend the rest of our lives searching for…

Back to Wedding Planning!

Life Experiment Blog!

Hello!

Although I’m still in recovery for another couple of weeks, my brain has awoken and I realized… ‘OMG! The wedding should be in several months and we had to take this huge break from getting anything done! OMG, OMG, OMG…..’  So yeah, about that.

Today, there are 2 items on my agenda that MUST be handled. Invitation ideas and bridal shoes. Think I can manage it? Probably not. But I’ll give it all I’ve got.

I’m having a tough time with bridal shoes. I’m a sky-high-heels kind of girl. Unfortunately for my shoe selection, we’ve opted for an indoor/outdoor gig. Which means there isn’t a heel protector on the planet that will keep me upright and not sunk into the dirt for a minimum of 6 hours.

I would love something like this, but I just can’t…..*sniff *sniff

Don Massenzio's Blog

This is a reboot of one of my most popular posts from 2016 in my blogging incarnation. The words in this post are just as true today as they were when it was posted. I’ve made some updates based on what I’ve learned along the way.


indie If you are like me, you are aware of the thousands of other authors that are in the indie-author universe on social media platforms. We all belong to groups on Facebook and we promote our books, blogs, giveaways, and events. We start to see the same names over and over relentlessly touting their work.

As I first entered the indie author world, I viewed all of these authors as people that were competing for my readers. I wanted to out-promote and out-sell all of them. Over the past two years, however, my view has changed. Instead of viewing my fellow authors as competitors, I have come to…

Chronically Grateful Me

Every time I’m planning a trip away from home for a day, weekend a week or even just a long day of errands, it kinda scares me, especially when I’m traveling alone, because, to put it simply, I just don’t trust my body some days I like to have fun and yet because my body doesn’t always have the same ideas I do I feel like I am disappointing others, holding them back, you know a stick in the mud.

Somedays It’s really hit or miss ifmy body will cooperate or be a big fail. I try plan the best I can,but hey we all knows things can often go very wrong.

I don’t always know that my bones will be in sync with the rest of me,especially my back ,will it hold out and I’ll be able to walk all the places I need to be. Or just be…

Is it Possible to NOT Lie?

Life Experiment Blog!

lifexperimentblog

Hi there,

Today I got Busted. With a capital B, for ‘lying’. Not outright lying, or pathological lying, but white-lie lying. And when I tried to defend myself, the reply I received was ‘you lie all the time about this stuff’. I was gobsmacked. I mean…REALLY?! I’ve always considered myself a rather straight forward person, with no time for lies or games. So how did this happen?

I spent quite a bit of time thinking about this after this discussion. This is how my lying evolved. You see, I used to be brutally honest. Like Tourettes – type, couldn’t stop myself, HAD to say what I thought. I’d been raised better than that, but I didn’t have time for bullshit. Better to just say it and get it out there. Surprisingly, I had many friends and they just accepted it as part of my personality. Although…
