When I went shopping for a friend of mine to get some early Christmas stress out of the way, I really didn’t expect to be fondling real human curly clip in hair extensions. Seriously! What kind of merchant is going to make a clearly weirded out shopper sit there and feel test the different kinds of hair that they have in their shop. On one hand, I didn’t even know that you could find real human hair in stores – that’s already weird enough for me. Second, I didn’t think there was enough real human hair that it would be broken down to different types thanks to a robust organizational method!
I mean, clearly I like my friend enough to want to give her something of value this Christmas. Read more
I am moving to Texas, and I have mixed feelings about it. I kind of like the idea of a new environment, but at the same time, I am from a very different area of the country, and so I really feel out of my element here. I have not spent much time here, mostly house shopping and I want to find some additional resources that will help me to pick my utility providers, and in particular, I need to find some information to lead me to a good choice when it comes to the company that I am going to get my electricity from at my new house.
Before I started looking for houses in Texas, I really had no idea that there would be multiple power companies to choose from. Kind of seems like a strange thing, or at the least, it is not somethign that I am used to. But I guess if you are a capitalist then there are good reasons to want to have your energy unregulated. The only issue I have is that maybe competition could be dangerous in a field such as energy, where if the service is unreliable, then there is going to be a huge impact on the every sector of the economy. I am sure that is not an issue here though, and there are probably lot of energy resources in the state of Texas, partly due to the fact that it is such a large state. And of course, there is a lot of drilling for oil off of the cost of the state. I don’t know if any of that goes into generating electricity, but that would be interesting to look into, to see how Texas gets the majority of its energy. But mostly, I just need to make a decision.
Finding a business that knows exactly what they are about is wonderful. I work a lot – my life is constantly on the go and with the number of responsibilities that I have on any given day, I can’t always look for great service providers for my needs. This definitely has become more of an issue as I’ve begun flying more for work. It can be difficult finding a rental car place that is willing to schedule so far ahead with us but thankfully there are some like the car rental at Mallorca airport that my employer connected me with.
I’ve been doing a lot of flying between t he United States and Spain the past couple of months. There was a time when I would have been incredibly thankful for such an opportunity. Read more
When I moved to Texas, I was happy for so many reasons. The main one is because I was now living with the man of my dreams. When my husband and I first met, we had a long distance relationship because we lived 400 miles apart. We didn’t live together until we were married though, and we bought our first house within months of saying our vows. Another reason I really enjoyed Texas is because of all the opportunities there. When I saw that we would have our choice of texas electricity companies, I was really surprised that we were given so many choices.
The state I had lived in up until my marriage did not let consumers pick which energy company was going to supply their needs, so this was a whole new ballgame to me. I love choices though, so I started looking at the different companies, but it was hard because all of their websites were filled with so much information. Read more

When I watched the news one morning last week, I was shocked to see that an elderly woman not even a couple of miles from where I live was brutally beaten during a home invasion in the wee hours of the night. I did not know her, but it scared me nonetheless because she is only a couple of years older than me. She is going to be okay, but the fear did not leave even in knowing that. I did an online search for Orlando ADT because there were just too many similarities between the two of us for me to be comfortable.
We are both elderly widows who live on our own, and it doesn’t seem as if her neighbors really know her either. My own neighbors never last more than a year or two, so it has been hard for me to get to know any of them. Read more
It is sad when ritual replaces faith. Jesus was the speaker in John 14:6 where the verse reads, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Just those two theological concepts indicate that faith greatly supersedes any physical act of ritual that could ever be performed by anyone.
Of course, one cannot use faith as a crutch to ignore the other necessary things we must do. We know the Bible teaches us to do things. We know that it is good to pray for the hungry to receive food. However, if we have food to give, we should be active in answering the prayers of the hungry rather than claiming our faith will get them the answers they need from someone else. The goal is for the heart to be changed by faith in Jesus. From the inside out we must change. It begins with that initial spark of faith that Jesus indeed is the Christ, the Holy One of God.

Jesus is our Lord and Savior, and he has taught us so much about loving and respecting one another. Jesus was faced with many challenges of his own, and each day he was faced with tests from the enemy. He endured much pain in order for us to be washed of our sins, and we need to truly thank him for our life on this earth as well as our abundant blessings.Many people do not see themselves as being blessed. They see themselves faced with challenges that they feel they have no control over, and when put to the test enough times, many people simply feel like saying, I give up.
You must never give up. Think of the many trials that our Lord and Savior went through in order for you to have your life. Read more
