The Attic Holds Treasures! It has been another on of those weeks. The end came before the middle and now the end is near and I have no post prepared. I remember that I promised a great one about community and I’m not the least prepared.  It seems yesterday was Monday, so today should be Tuesday,…

Last Week’s Horns. . . Last week when I wrote the blog post; I was sittin’ on the horns of a dilemma! And it was not a pleasant place to be. But time marches on and as it does; Papa God removes the sting from the horns and resolves the dilemma to our benefit. I…

Sittin’ On The Horns. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 31, 2019 / 4 Comments

Painting the picture! Nearly a year ago, an organization I helped to start in my home area took on a strange complexion. New leadership who had taken over from me when I served a “pro-tem” position turned nasty and ugly. Suddenly, I was the villian from whom stuff needed to be hidden. A secret meeting…

May, the perfect whirlwind month! Graduations, weddings, major holiday celebrating mothers & remembering our war dead as well as loved ones gone before us.

For Better or Worse!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 17, 2019 / 4 Comments

For Better or Worse. . . This past week I read a fascinating article in the San Diego Union-Tribune about the amazing rehabilitation of hatemongers, i.e. skinheads, neo-nazi’s and Ku Klux Klan members.

An Overriding Thought! Have you ever had one thought that just keeps running around your brain and won’t quit? That’s what I had a week ago during our highly successful Affiliated Women’s COFFEE in the NEIGHBORHOOD Spring women’s conference workshop. The event is called “BOLD WOMEN of FAITH” and the May 2 event was the…

Hold On By Letting Go. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / May 3, 2019 / 2 Comments

Life Paradoxes!  Most of the inspirational messages I read these days exhorts us to let go and let God.  My morning reading consists of “My Utmost For His Highest” by Oswald Chambers and “TGIF” (Today God Is First), by Os Hillman. The theme is almost always the importance of our faith being strong enough to…

The Likelihood of a Cat’s Death. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 26, 2019 / 8 Comments

Cat Got Your Tongue?  When I was a young woman, I rarely spoke my mind. And when I did, my words were so far from how I really felt that one might accuse me of insincerity – even hypocrisy. I definitely let the cat have my tongue. How did I handle pent-up feelings? I talked…

The Easter Story ~ Could It Possibly Be?

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / April 21, 2019 / 0 Comments

Who Could It Possibly Be? Some years ago, a major aspect of the Easter story came to me in a burst of revelation that shook me to my core. A positive ‘shaking’ I might add! After years of life and celebrations of Resurrection Sunday, a profoundly important aspect of the story burst upon the scene…

A Prologue. . . What can we say about Good Friday, that hasn’t already been said? Or not said because we don’t know what to say! Truth be known, speaking or writing about a day in which a man willingly went to a horrific death because it was His purpose is not something most humans…
