If You Mess With The Bull…

My man isn’t good with *feeling* words…I mean he says the sweetest things but mostly has stolen his lines from a country song. Let’s just say he’s not original in that area and I could care less, we all have a glitch. He is the MOST compassionate man on the planet so it works out. Speaking of words, my girls… Continue reading If You Mess With The Bull…

Lyrics Are Straight Up Gospel

It was 1990 something and it was basically a crap day. I was twirling my hair desperate for class to be over so I could get in my car, and b-l-a-s-t my music. I already knew which CD, I already knew the number, and I already knew it would make me bawl my eyes out and drive like a bat out of… Continue reading Lyrics Are Straight Up Gospel

Boys Do This Awesome Thing…(they turn into men)

I knew *this girl* who fell in love with this boy who had these blue eyes that are hard to describe. Ocean like…but think the Bahamas not Florida. And she knew deep in her heart he didn’t love Jesus but he was a really good guy, made mostly good choices, was smart AND funny. Total package, except not. So she convinced… Continue reading Boys Do This Awesome Thing…(they turn into men)

Nothing Drives Me More Crazy

Hey love bug! Listen we need to address something and it will just take a sec. So here’s the thing about being an outspoken Christian….YOU ARE SUCH AN EASY TARGET. Anybody understand what I’m saying? People will accuse you of judging when actually, you are just “not participating”. There is a HUGE difference there. For example, (I’ll throw… Continue reading Nothing Drives Me More Crazy
