How blessed are the feet of those who spread Good News! A born-again Christian who loves the Word of God, I endeavor to explore scripture in short posts due to my reduced attention span! I now write (or administrate) FIVE blogs: "Grace Partakers" "obsecrations" "Versatile Blogger Award" "Metal Man Walking" and "DooRFrame Books." Sometimes accused - yes! accused! - of being a Calvinist, I actually admit to believing God is Sovereign and God is Love.

A fine poem by Dean J Baker…
Originally posted on Dean J. Baker - Poetry, and prose poems:
I don’t subscribe to beauty’s genetic accident, that fuel
On which the world turns when undisturbed by sentiment’s
Arrid heart of drama and real tragedy without awareness
Fables guarantee a thread to follow, amplified to please
All the hollow hobby horses going nowhere again, your
Cruelty is not rare but ordinary, average and everyday
Turn your head this way or that, whatever you’re looking
At does not look back, luckily for those who don’t wish
To be judged as they do beneath their pretensions and grandeur
Those with riches are no different than you and the neighbor
Over whom you hold reins of strangling details: you leave
And travel exotically, lysergically staring down Medusa’s hair
The experiment has gone wrong without equivalency being
Any concern of anybody you ever knew or could see, drifting
Toward a destiny you still tell yourself you…

Life is hard… but, life is also great!
Originally posted on Words Unspoken:
- What is something we don’t talk enough about?
- “Just how hard everything is. Keeping my head above water on a daily basis is my biggest challenge, but no-one ever says anything. It’s as if we’re expected to sail through life – through school, achieving high grades, and then manage to do well at university while somehow make a name for ourself so that we get a decent chance at a job we might actually enjoy. What’s wrong with the fact that I don’t know what I want to do? Why does no-one ever tell us it’s okay to feel sad?”
One of my favourite books is titled “The Road Less Travelled” by M. Scott Peck. The first sentence in the book is: “Life is difficult.”
Peck then explains that once you accept that life is hard, it no longer becomes an issue that it’s difficult. He says: “Once we…

Check out a great $28 dress!
I would have to say that 90% of the time I go into my local fabric store and just buy fabric with no real project in mind. Sometimes its because they are having a buy one- get one 1/2 off sale. Or sometimes it’s because one of my favorite designers, like Leah Duncan or Joel Dewberry, have released a new collection and I want to get it before it’s gone. But on this particular trip to Five Eighth Seams, I saw this pink fabric with gold dots from Michael Miller’s Glitz collection and I knew exactly what it was meant for. And why is that? Because it looked exactly like the fabric I recently saw in this Lilly Pulitzer dress:

In the YouTube video description, Hull wrote:
“With so many covers of Let it Go coming out, people may forget the original Disney magic that this song has, so what better way to preserve that magic with other Disney and Pixar characters singing the song! So enjoy this Disney and Pixar Mashup!”

A new blog, but delightful nevertheless. Check out FASHION and FISHING.
I’m sure my friends must think that I have moved away. Or possibly that I am out traveling the south of France, eating croissants with men named Jean-Pierre or Francois. But the fact is, I am right here in Charleston. The beautiful city of ours with its beaches, fine dining, oyster roasts, and tourist attractions there are countless things one could get into. But instead I have been doing this:
Work, work, work. My 9 to 5. My hell on Earth. Just kidding it’t not so bad. When you’re knee deep in tracheal secretions or helping someone learn how to swallow their saliva, the time goes by fast. But I do burn out really easily. And seriously as of lately my only work ambition has been to see if I can re-arrange the office so that no one else in the room can see my computer monitor.

Ban bossy? No, ban bitchy!
Originally posted on Black Millennial Musings:
The campaign promotes female empowerment in young girls, and seeks to overthrow the word “bossy,” a term often used to undermine the prowess of strong female leaders. The tagline, as said by superstar Beyoncé, is: “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.”
Ban Bossy is headed by Lean In, a nonprofit founded by Sheryl Sandberg COO of Facebook, and the Girl Scouts; two powerful organizations with ample resources to comprehensively address female empowerment and leadership skills.
Although I am supportive of the motivations behind the campaign, I have my doubts. For one, I personally never associated the word bossy with overwhelming negativity. I always connected it with “boss.” I always used the word in the most definitive…

For those VBA Winners who love make-up!

When you are a little girl, dandelions don’t seem like a weed, instead they are simply beautiful little flowers that you can pick and give to your Mom or perhaps put in your hair. You certainly don’t have the faintest idea as to why adults seem to concern themselves with their removal. I’ve always thought they were pretty little rays of sunshine, poking their heads up among the grassy forest. It seems like sort of a needless fight really… yet people spend their hard earned money every year waging war. Don’t worry, I live in an apartment, so I’m not your neighbour and you don’t have to worry about my lawn being the bane of your existence.
Their sunny little faces always made me happy. In fact, I should probably use the words “make me happy” given that it was just over a year ago that I found myself picking…

A collection of stories by women…

The “I finished my novel” honeymoon recedes into memory like the scent of suntan lotion on last year’s bikini. The road to publication stretches as far as the eye can see. And damn. That road ain’t paved with yellow bricks.
The lovely, optimistic and oft-asked, “When’s your book coming out?!” is answered with a cheery “Someday, I hope!” while inside my heart stutters. The true answer is, “Well, you see, writing a book and publishing a book? It’s the difference between graduating from university and getting a job. The first is never a guarantee of the second. You got the goods, and hopefully the goods are good. But before anyone buys your goods, you must do all the hard work of selling them.”
First, generous strangers and writing buddies dissect your pounds of literary flesh.. You revise, then pay a story editor cash money to tear apart your work again. Revise…
