Compassion

I haven’t written in a while… not because I haven’t wanted to or because I’ve had nothing to say.  On the contrary, I have plenty to write, but no time to carve out to write it.  But I hope to remedy that now. I love the Bible.  It is my absolute favorite book.  I may … Continue reading

What I have learned about blogging so far…

In another life, a long time ago, I had another blog where I wrote about my journey through weightloss.  And weight gain.  And loss.  And more gain… well, you get the picture.  At that time, I had 2 readers… who often had better things to read… I knew nothing about the blog world.

The Walking Dead…
