A Change of Seasons. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / August 2, 2019 / 0 Comments

A Change of Seasons. . . It’s really not a change of season as much as a change of mood and focus. I speak of having taken the month of July off from blogging. It would be great to report that the time off was consumed by a vacation at the beach, long sauntering walks…

Words Define Life and Relationships!

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / June 28, 2019 / 2 Comments

A History Lesson. . .  Some years ago while driving from Indianapolis to Columbus, Ohio for my cousin’s wake; the Lord kept me busy learning about “words”! Not so much words per se; but the importance of words and how we use them.  Scripture says that the power of life and death is in the…

May I Join You? Last week when talking about community and the value of “tribes” as defined by the brilliant Seth Godin, I stated the following: “By whatever name – Godin calls them “Tribes”; we call them a Neighborhood-  they are one and the same. Vehicles of connection. Opportunities for change.” At least 2 women in…

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. . .

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. You name it and the month of May seems to have it contained within. However, those of us who must manage the “contained within” rarely feel as if we have the…

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. It is the impetus for this post because it relates the one thing in common for us all. “Community, Cause & Identity”!…

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…
