Boundaries Are Part Of God’s Protection Plan

By Annie Quinnell | March 4, 2019 | Comments Off on Boundaries Are Part Of God’s Protection Plan

Growing up I thought I was an extention of my mother. I had no sense of self. No sense of where my mom ended and I began. I can think back now and wonder, was it my birth order? I was the baby in the family. The fourth child of out of four. Was it…

Gratitude Is Not Just An Atitude

By Annie Quinnell | November 25, 2018 | Comments Off on Gratitude Is Not Just An Atitude

Tis the season to be grateful. The Thanksgiving season promotes the idea of thankfulness. Everywhere you go as you prepare for your own Thanksgiving meal you are reminded to be thankful. The billboards along the highway speak of it. The commercials on TV are marketing it. Even the checkout people at the grocery store wish you…

Feeling The Weight Of Loss

By Annie Quinnell | November 7, 2018 | Comments Off on Feeling The Weight Of Loss

They say the one thing we can count on in life is change. Every second of every minute of every hour, life is changing. This is a good thing. I can’t imagine a life where time stands still and there is no forward motion. There would be no adventure, no excitement, no joy or the thrill…

I Do I Do I Do

Oh, that day. The day most little girls dream of, fantasize about and play out in their mind. The day they say “I Do.” They may not have a boyfriend but you can be sure that every girl has thought about more than once what kind of wedding she wants. What kind of engagement ring…

Love Waits

Love waits and waits and waits. Does it feel that way for you? I know I feel that way. Do you listen to sappy love songs and wonder when it’s going to be your turn on the merry-go-round of love? Or did you just jump off that carnival ride? Whether you were married or with…

Through Their Eyes

By Annie Quinnell | May 21, 2018 | Comments Off on Through Their Eyes

We are all waiting for something. If you don’t believe me ask anybody, a friend or a coworker, what are you waiting for? It seems that expectation and anticipation are common themes throughout our lives. Our days are riddled with expectations. We even expect we will wake up in the morning, or at least we hope to.…

Mother’s Day Mantra

I don’t even think I need to ask you if you remember that day. You know, the day your life changed forever. One day your life was all about you and from the next day on, it was never about you again. I’m talking about the day you became a mom. Whether you birthed, adopted…

The Haves And The Have Nots

Why is it some women seem to have an endless supply of attention from men? Maybe they didn’t even want the husband they had and that’s why they’re divorced. Maybe they didn’t even get married to their baby’s daddy and he still pays all the bills. It seems like some women have all the luck. I…

You Were Born Flawless

By Annie Quinnell | April 29, 2018 | Comments Off on You Were Born Flawless

The day you were born you were flawless. That’s as good as it gets. From that day on your body begins aging. I’m not sure at what point it starts for a woman but to be sure, we do suffer from the need to be perfect more than men. Clothes left on the bathroom floor would…

Gracefully Broken

Have you ever wondered why rejection hurts so much? The risk of rejection is even greater these days thanks to electronic communications and social media platforms. Who hasn’t misunderstood a text or been “unfriended?” It would seem to me whether you’re the rejecter or the rejected, there is a pain you can’t deny. When the…
