Tainted Alcohol

Tainted Alcohol

Confession . . . the Smith family consumes alcohol in moderation. Hopefully, that isn’t a deal breaker for you. But – yes, we do drink. (And – Scott has given his permission for me to share this story!) Therefore it wasn’t a big deal when on ...
Ever Been Helpless?

Ever Been Helpless?

No one wants to feel utterly helpless. It is human nature to want to feel as if we are in control of our lives . . . but sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. Do you remember a time when you felt absolutely helpless? What did ...
Did You Have a Blankie?

Did You Have a Blankie?

Have you ever “attached” yourself to something? Like – really attached? Some babies attach themselves to their pacifiers for comfort. Other small children have a special stuffed animal or my personal favorite, a blankie, and that is their ...
You’re Full of Yourself!

You’re Full of Yourself!

Have you ever been in a debate with someone about a political or moral issue and you find yourself saying, “If you’ve already made up your mind about this then why are we discussing it? Why bother?” Or . . . have you ever been told, “You are ...
Dependent on Nothing and No One

Dependent on Nothing and No One

A few years ago I had the opportunity to spend the night at the Homeless Shelter that New Story Church in Winston Salem offers throughout the winter months. Part of the experience was the time we sat around the dinner table with the guests of ...
I See You! I Hear You!

I See You! I Hear You!

Forgive me for a tv example . . . .  but years ago there was a show Parenthood (now on my gluttonous guilty pleasure Netflix)in which the father figure, Zeek, had some difficulty relating to his wife, Camille. Throughout the series, especially ...
Happiness is Happenstance

Happiness is Happenstance

Have you ever felt “happy” to only find that within a matter of minutes, the day “tanked?” One phone call, one text, one email, one exchange with another human being . . . bad news, a difficult situation to face, harsh words were spoken. . . ...
Changing One’s Mind

Changing One’s Mind

The Help is a great movie giving us a very real depiction of what segregated life was like for African Americans in America prior to some laws that brought about slow change. When “The Help” begins, aspiring journalist Skeeter returned from ...
Iconoclast

Iconoclast

Have you ever heard the phrase “sacred cows?” A “sacred cow” is an idea, custom, or institution held, especially unreasonably, to be above criticism or change. It references the Hindus' respect for the cow as a sacred animal. The first time I ...
He Opened His Mouth

He Opened His Mouth

Have you ever found yourself saying, “It was all good until he or she opened his/her mouth?” Perhaps you were admiring someone that you wanted to date . . . and it was all good until they spoke. Then you decided . . . “Ummmmm, not for me.” Or ...
Have You Ever Broken the Rules?

Have You Ever Broken the Rules?

It was my junior year of high school and for some horrific reason I had “Keyboarding 2.”  Apparently whatever academic class I wanted was full, so I got my THIRD choice of elective . . . and back then I didn’t have the wisdom to question or ...
Competing in any kind of race has never been my thing.

Competing in any kind of race has never been my thing.

I think I was scarred as a young child with field days. Sack Races, Three-Legged Races, Relay Races, 50 Yard Dash, 100 Yard Dash, I could go on and on . . .  I HATED field day. I’d rather go to the dentist and get a cavity filled with no pain ...
