Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Quit Looking at Me!

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. Roald Dahl It goes far [] read more »

My Memories Are Always Filled With Sunshine

The memories of my life are always filled with sunshine. Still, there is a place deep inside where storms live. I have pictures of my children playing in the snow and I remember the year my oldest son came home from school after an ice storm, snow and a freezing wind. Our yard was completely filled with ice covered with white. Our house was on the slope of a hill. There were houses lower down and there was no fence between our yard and our next door neighbor. On the other side of the neighbor's yard ther... read more »

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie! ♥The scariest thing in life can beFollowing our heart, no guarantee,What may happen, joy or pain,With all to lose or much to gain.

Greetings and welcome from Artsieladie! ♥Welcome to my new blog! This blog is for sharing with my audience quotes I have written. Some will be in images, some won't and will be just the text version of a quote of mine.To start I'm selecting one of my favourites because when I look back over my life, some of the happiest and most rewarding times in my life have been when I'm giving to another in some way and there are many ways to be giving besides actually giving something in a tangible form. When we hel... read more »

A Vacancy for Joy

Recently a friend sent me this quote that has resonated on different levels. “I want my life to be an inviting guest room, where joy can walk in and stay awhile.” Ashley Wiersma She sent it because my house has been a fairly continuous place of care and solace. As in Simon and Garfunkles Sparrow song, people can grow [] read more »

A Journey called Life where only you hold the Map

This journey called life is full of heartaches, joys and many lessons to learn. However, it up to us to decide how we begin and end it. I truly believe that every day when we wake up in the morning, we should be cognizant of the fact that time is slipping away very fast and furious like sand in an hourglass. On this journey in this life, we never know the beginning nor the ending to our destiny. Nonetheless, life is a journey where we must live life to the fullest from one moment to the next and remember... read more »

This Is The Day, This Is The Day…

I believe we are wasting some valuable resources in the church. We have often worked so hard to be relevant, that we have downgraded our thinking some times. We have lost some of the things that truly make the church the church. Many of those resources are the folks who went through powerful times. Impartation, Continue reading This Is The Day, This Is The Day read more »

The Rest That Refreshes!

One of the big topics in my life is rest. Not fall asleep kind of rest, but the one where you relax in Him. Yesterday began to remove my peace, my sense of well being. A manufacturer had done me wrong. They have a rule and they broke it. Their answer was “maybe the next Continue reading The Rest That Refreshes! read more »

Crazy Little Thing

This morning the craziest thing happened. I wrote the final words to a novel. Crazy? Why is it crazy for a storyteller with 20 published novels to be sitting in amazement at that fact. Well, for starters, I havent finished one in quite some time. I knowyoure all bobbing your heads up and down in agreement. Stop [] read more »

Eat The Fruit Of The Spirit

The other day while taking in the beginning of the fall colors and the warmth of the day the Lord began to speak to me about the fruit of the spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no [] read more »

Letting Go And Letting God

Grace Happens. Let Go And Let God. First Things First. Live And Let Live. My Mom had found Al Anon and those bumper stickers began to appear everywhere in our home. Most notably the refrigerator.

Trading Your Peace? Consider The Consequences.

In my dream, I had walked out the door. There was a little child who chasing a large winged creature. He was so happy. (The child…not the creature!) I walked back in the building with this sense of trepidation. I met with the editor of the paper. He spoke to me about me “making money” [] read more »

Relax. There Is Joy!

Life is to be lived. As I woke this morning, I thought about the things that do not live and the energy folks put into them. It may be a phone, a website or a program. I am not saying “do not use” or enjoy, but what is life in the midst of it? The [] read more »

The Restoration Of Vehicles

I walked down each row of vehicles. I was looking for the right car. (Funny, my wife has been asking me lately “if you could have any car…”.)The problem was that all the cars seemed to be “white” and they certainly all look the same! (One of my pet peeves as I have grown.) Finally, [] read more »

Results More Than Reasons

As the young child stretched forth his hand the baby came to life. No longer blue in color, but quickly recovering and having color restored the child began to coo softly. Life had returned. What was it that brought such instantaneous change to the dead baby? Was it faith? Was it it Jesus? The mystery [] read more »

The Little Joys by Maureen Lang

Happiness and Joy!

This piece has been long due. A lot of people have time and again, asked me to write on ‘joy and happiness’. Though very subjective issues, people often categorize joy and happiness into one sphere of ‘good times’. The thought Continue reading read more »

A Dog With Two Bones- A Tale Of Choice

In one of my dreams a person had multiple choices before them and the words, “Caesar, Caesar” were being shouted out to them. Upon awakening, I came to the conclusion that the words were really “seize her” pointing out the answer to a choice. When I was young I was told the story of a [] read more »

Enjoying The Body of Christ

The Joy of Animals

It's the beginning of October and it's safe to it's the start of my favourite few months. As much I love summer, once you feel those nights draw in, you are ready to say your goodbyes to a warm, festival season and welcome autumn with open arms! Why? Well who doesn't love sitting next to a blazing fire in a house that smells of cherries and honey; drinking hot chocolate and adorned in knitwear, fur lined boots and hats!?October is the seasons of pumpkins, fireworks, mulled cider, frights and forest splen... read more »

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Drop the Sand, Grasp the Diamonds.

Do you remember playing in the sand as a child and trying to keep a hand full of the tiny grains in your palm? It had to be gripped so tightly to keep any of it. One loosening of the palm and the sand would all fall out. Your fears, angers, hurts, are like those grains of sand. When you first encounter them, they are huge like a stone. But eventually the stone disappears and what is left behind is sand. You don't feel the stone anymore, but you still grip the grains of sand in your palms, refusing to r... read more »

Was That Rant Worth 15 Minutes of Your Life?

Recently, I was sitting in a coffee shop sipping my brew and gathering my thoughts when the conversation at the next table caught my ear. I couldn't help but listen - the volume kept rising.One of the women at the table was unhappy with her order. She was going to call the corporate offices, post scathing posts on one of her social media sites, and vowed never to come there again. The other women at the table, who appeared to be her sister and her mom, joined in her lament, fueling the already irritated ... read more »

Excuse Me...Your Chip Is Showing

Does that person that always acts like they are the underdog irritate you? Does it ever seem like they carry the world on their shoulders, and everyone around them can feel it? Do you ever realize that you are looking in the mirror and that person is you?That, my dear Women Enough is a big ole chip on your shoulder.There may be many reasons why and ways how that chip got there. Perhaps there was an injustice done to you at some point. Possibly a friend or co-worker was catty and self serving in how they ... read more »

source Could a name be more befitting, For a princess of such grace? Shining like a heavenly star, She fills your heart with hope and joy. The hues of the northern lights, Twinkling in her eyes, As she gazes into your soul, You will see it's reflection in her stare.

I Need Payday Loans to Chill Out After Working ...

So I realize this post is like a week late, but like what I always say, better late than never. Okay, so last weekend, my sisters and I went out, at night. I haven't been out on a gimik (a night out to go clubbing or bar hopping) without B since what feels like forever. Hence, my title. B was supposed to accompany us but he was too tired from work, so it was just me and my sisters. 18BC Music Lounge photo taken from 18BC's Facebook page at We went to our uncle'... read more »

For those of you who don't know, I have 2 sisters and a brother. I've written about my sisters, Coy and Joy on this blog quite a lot, but I don't think I've ever posted a picture of the three of us before. Until now...

Coy also lives in Manila, but she usually comes up to Baguio, where I live, every once ... read more »
