This was the title of a featured book given to me at a speaking engagement in Texas – and I found much wisdom in that book! There were many Texas sayings with hidden advice found on the pages of that book. As I share a few with you, I will also share even better advice I have found through the years from an even better best seller!

Yes, we all have a “story” – a past that we wouldn’t want to share with anyone. But what if we found that by sharing our past, someone else might be spared that hurt, or even helped in the midst of the sharing – and it could be yourself!

“I hate my life, I’m horrible and nobody likes me! I’m just going to stay here and eat worms and have my own little pity party – hosted by me!” Have you ever felt that way? I have! When I was in my late teens and early twenties. I knew something had to be done, or something drastic would be done!

If you have ever been tossed around in the waves of the ocean, or especially gone out too deep and grasped in an undertow, then you understand my fear. In the past few months many of us have felt like we were drowning in the “undertow” of life.

Surely somebody somewhere has an answer as to what is going to happen next. There must be a grand conclusion on the way or at least some kind of a clue as to what we can expect around the next bend! If only we had a few answers.

A little child playfully teasing is very different from a teenager who lies to your face. I’m not sure as a child I really knew the truth about lying, and many today unfortunately are the same! How can we ever trust anyone?

In today’s lingo, “back to school” may really mean “back to your computer!” How do you help a child with virtual learning, when you have perhaps never even experienced virtual learning? How do you help yourself in general?

Grief is an emotion that can only truly occur when we have loved.  The deeper we loved, the deeper our grief. If we were indifferent or didn’t really know the person who dies, we may have sympathy, but grief is reserved for the one we truly loved.

When we have formed our own opinions or thoughts on how much God controls, we have to first ask if we do or do not believe in God. If we say that we do, we answer one way. If we don’t, we answer another way. The question is, “Who wins?”

Whether you have heard this song about Heaven or not, none of us really know what Heaven will be like.  Many aren’t sure there really is a Heaven, and especially don’t believe you can know you are going there! But there is so much in scripture about it.

Unless you’ve  lost a lot of weight you won’t remember of underwear labeled  Big Mama. But I wore that until I lost 100 pounds. My first date with my husband- to- be is one story I have told through the years, and it always brings people to tears laughing!

If you were in the middle of a horrible dilemma and thought you were surely doomed, and then someone gave you a secret weapon, wouldn’t it be a shame to not use it? Would you just toss it aside because you didn’t know if it would work or not?

When you’re faced with a dilemma where you truly can do nothing about it, isn’t it time to surrender? I have a friend who was put on hospice last week, and there is absolutely nothing she can do. She has surrendered her life, her will and her soul to God.

You may or may not be celebrating the 4th of July this year. Either way, everything has changed. No more city or county gatherings, no big barbeques and parades. But we can still celebrate America. Our beloved country needs help.

An old adage from Robert Burns is “the best made plans of mice and men often go awry.” The Bible puts it, “man may plan his way but God directs his steps.” I had a birthday this past week, and it was NOT what we had planned, but it was in other ways even better!

Recent happenings caused me to have a great conversation with an African American friend.  I learned instead of hearing what she was saying, I was  instead planning  how to convince her I wasn’t prejudiced!
