  1. Garage Door Syndrome

    Thu, May 2, 2013 at 11:27 PM 4 Comments

    The song continues to inspire me forever. May 2, 2013 A couple of losses over the last few years prompted me to consider the state of connections among people and whether or not something of an epidemic has developed. This has been on my mind for a while, but I was sidelined by having to edit and repost many of my previous entries. I actually searched briefly using this entry...

  2. More Hilarity

    Wed, May 1, 2013 at 9:55 PM 2 Comments

    This doesn't mention the band, but I can almost hear them rolling on the floor laughing if they heard or read a story like this. April 7, 2010 Every time I tell this one, it always sends people roaring. This occurred in late 1991 or very early 1992 but more likely the former. My late husband Ray, who wasn't yet then, was visiting with Alan, my ex, because Alan had just started working...

  3. I must have been pretty disgusted with the whole Valentine's Day thing to have written this. I notice this wasn't even on Facebook. Hmmm, I wonder if something like this really would fly in court! Again, I found inspiration in a lyric from the band. February 12, 2010 Lately, some friends and I have been disgusted with the whole commercialized affair called Valentine's Day, so...

  4. Lessons from Marriage

    Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 9:08 PM 2 Comments

    Again, a couple of clarifications. And I didn't think I'd been inspired by a song lyric in this one, but once again I was. Man, they're good! December 23, 2009 Here I go again. This one I’m inspired to write because recently, I’ve received a series of phone calls from a friend who shall remain anonymous here. He’s expressing myriad issues in his marriage, and I’m driven once...

  5. I panicked. I thought they'd deleted this one. Needless to say, everything's now all out of order. Oh well. Praise God it's all still here as a testimony! Just an update: The whistling kettle's whistle broke, but fortunately it still hisses! Four years on, I frankly no longer care whether social media tracks us; I don't say anything people don't already know. The song remains my favorite, and...

  6. Once again, some slight changes. Wow, that was the Holy Spirit, not me! February 1, 2010 I would not have bothered watching the Grammys last night except that I wanted to find out if a select few bands won. Otherwise, I've long since given up watching. But what really struck me wasn't so much the performances, and they didn't end up highlighting those bands anyway. They totally...

  7. Moving Day: Lessons in Humility

    Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 4:01 PM 0 Comments

    Much has changed even since this entry. Because this current place doesn't have a light at the crosswalk, someone is sent out with me when I leave for home because people come flying around the corner from the Wal-Mart parking lot. (Those who were off the same time I was and could give me a ride to the train station are gone.) As for getting lost, I still don't know which conference room is...

  8. Little Christmas Miracles

    Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 11:16 AM 0 Comments

    Originally posted December 17, 2009. Making a couple of corrections here. So much has happened since then. This one doesn't mention the band, but ever since September of that year when I first heard the song released, it was always in the back of my mind reminding me of the truth of this verse at the bottom of this entry. December 17, 2009 As Christmas approaches, I wonder how many...

  9. Originally posted September 29, 2010. Having to repost on Facebook because MySpace imports disappeared due to upgrades. September 28, 2010 Several things happened to me over the past couple of weeks that made me wonder if the devil was seriously on my tail. I had to get dental work done. (Who doesn't hate that?) My shower began to drip and ultimately water from next door's shower backed...

  10. Further Misadventures

    Originally posted January 27, 2010. Since that time, they've installed the audible signal, one more sign of God's protection. No, I wasn't part of that city council process! January 26, 2010 Well, for anyone who's read my prior entries, this simply continues my further adventures in learning to be alone and what life constantly teaches me.One of the results of being alone, at least in my...
