Another act of violence occurs daily shattering lives and injuring minds and hearts. 

I generally don’t like to take a political stand, but when our high government officials take a shot at gun control every time something like this happens, it’s hard for me to be quiet. 

I am not a gun slinger. The only time I fired a gun was when I shot a squirrel that was tampering with our bird feeder, and I felt tremendous guilt for a long time. 

 What really needs to be addressed is the behavior of people and how they settle their grievances, anger and problems.  Why must violent behavior erupt over menial issue? Have we diverted our attention so inward, that we can’t talk to each other anymore?

We hear of young teens taking their own life because of being bullied.  Words of thoughtless “friends” are the weapon for those senseless deaths.

We are all born with the ability to kill. It’s part of our sinful nature. We need to be taught to love and care for our fellow man. The best source for that education is the Bible. The precepts in that precious book tell us how to live and love our neighbor.

Someday there will be life without sin – free from evil and senseless behavior, but while we wait for heaven, let’s work on how our young people are taught to love, communicate and solve problems without violence.

It all starts within the involvement of loving parents and a solid relationship being established with the Creator and Redeemer of the world.

If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
