Cloud Whispers By: Sedona Hutton

by Sedona Hutton Cloud Whispers By: Sedona Hutton Have you ever considered how many people in this world simply “settle” for what they have in their life?  Getting up each morning and going to jobs which they hate.  Living in areas which make them unhappy.  Maintaining relationships with unpleasant and toxic individuals.  Sad to be sure… and usually done in an effort to keep the peace and please others.  However, the problem with living life as a “people pleaser” is that an individual is not really living their own life at all.  Everything is done for someone else.  Soul...

A Sense of Wrath By: Mary White

A Sense of Wrath by Mary White Goodreads A Sense of Wrath By:  Mary White Undoubtedly, there are many distinct differences between living in a huge city versus a small town.  In the hustle and bustle of a sprawling Metropolis one can live in virtual anonymity.  However, in a small town it can be nearly impossible to be so inconspicuous as everyone seems to know about one another’s private affairs.  In such an environment, an individual can experience great difficulty rising above the malicious “rumor mills” which may arise.  Indeed, a perceived blunder in judgment or deed can stick...

The Man in the Hall By:  B.L. Clark

The Man in the Hall By:  B.L. Clark I implore you to take a few minutes and read the local newspaper headlines or view the top news stories on the evening news.  What do you notice?  Chances are you will see stories of death, mayhem and discord.  That is not a dramatic or overly exaggerated statement.  It is true.  The “good news’ stories typically appear on the back pages or at the ending of a news broadcast.  They don’t tend to sell newspapers and there are just not as many good news stories out there!  Undoubtedly, human civilization as...

To come to the end of one’s life and be full of regret is a terrible thing for anyone to experience.  The whole idea of living with no excuses and loving with zero regrets, right out the window.  A life full of missed opportunities and w…
