Can’t nothing make a teacher happier than a scheduled oasis of time, Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, and the beloved Spring Break!!!!

I know that all of Metro Nashville will rejoice today and next week every zoo, museum, and Chuck E. Cheese will be full!

Time to reset, de-clutter and relax.

Pray for our children and their guardians!

Read Psalms 132. Make a smoothie.

With gratefulness!

Are you BURNT OUT?

Scott Geller has inspired me to get out my bed and get moving on some work I need to do in order to be prepared for tomorrow.

I saw a beautiful dog 🐶 🐕 at the Murphy USA name Honey. I encouraged a sister to put her child at Ezell-Harding Christian (she saw my Ezell t-shirt and asked if I taught there…I used to but I still co-sign Ezell ❤️♥️☺️🥰) and paid for gas with a gentleman named Timothy. All these are signs that everything IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT!

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) — Brad Hindley planned to be vacationing on a lake this week. Instead, he’s been on a boat in his swamped Fort Smith neighborhood trying to keep gas in generators that are…

This is my native state, Arkansas. I am heartbroken for our state. Please pray and support how you are able and led.

I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a ‘mistake’ is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.-Hugh Prather

Goodness, good news, and good people:

May they come into your aura.

Magnetize beauty, power, creativity.

 Seedz of joy grow magnolia flowers yall mistake as my teeth.

Smile centered,

Anatomy diagonal to the dirt.

Sun spits rays,

Faster goes the merry-go-round.

Weird and strange.

My eyes wrinkle,

Cheeks become parentheses

With as much royalty as Rameses.






 come here,

let me.

be your.

life-sized centerfold.





Something special in writing a book,

story or song,

to sustain the thought long enough

to feel and to meddle

with the possibility

soaking in the emotion

b/c mine are so passing, ephermal, and forgettable.

Getting my mind to stay in gear:

a great feat

-seeing as how I desire to be

planning out my career

Right Now.

Need to let myself stop feeling the need

to (get)

caught up.

And let old promise,

commitments, whatever

fly off with new wings

to see new life

as from this day forward.

The need to share ideas like water

in streams flows free.

Sleep is slipping her hands

around my waist and pulling me close to her.

I done spent the better part of the day

on a Scandal marathon with good food and catnaps:

unhaunted by tasks or to-do-lists,

a Saturday to just be.

Be flooded with a differing life pace and be sucked into a visual storybook.

When in his company 3-D is a place that’s calling my name over miles. I

love you.

I want the world so bad, friction is sandpaper on silk.

The human race and its colors truly are kaleidoscopic.

“And GOD said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26
