When I Was a Child…

That Scripture from Matthew or wherever… it doesn’t matter, does it? Yall know what it says… I spoke like a child…  I speak like a child all the time. Most of the time it’s because I am so stinking happy I can’t control it. Like I can’t control it when I’m mad or sad or… Continue reading When I Was a Child…

Howdy!

I’m here today because I cannot post on my WordPress site because I haven’t been able to pay the webhosting stuff… something like two hundred bucks, which I don’t have because I’m a child when it comes to managing money.

Silver Linings

Funny how catastrophes can illuminate the past to make it seem glorious. How they can demand action.
