Heaven Sends a Greeting Card.

Last Sunday evening, Christopher and I watched "The Road" on Netflix. It's not exactly a "feel-good" movie (like, at all), so when loving peace BURST, then spread through my chest cavity mid-film, I felt momentarily confused. This rare, beautiful feeling literally overtakes. It wholly consumes. And I looked slyly to Christopher, because I always wonder, …

Deceased Loved Ones: Stephen

I've dreaded this post, because I knew this entry had to be about Stephen. And I fear failing to convey what happened. How it felt. How it still feels. *** We stayed with my friend Angie before flying to London, Labor Day weekend. Not only was my family there, but her brother-in-law, Stephen, was there, …

Happy Birthday Indeed!

I must share something quite awesome that happened two years ago. Many will read this and say "what a lovely coincidence" but I don't believe in coincidence and this stuff happens way too often on Planet Jennifer.

Jesus for Breakfast

I am stupid tired. Again. This is like my 8th night of interrupted sleep and I’m a little irritated . . . okay, a lot irritated. Usually it’s my idiot neighbors waking me up. They’re under 25, work in bars, and I curse their vampire hours! Typically they're leaving the house as I stack my pillows just …

Angels. They’re real you know.

I met my first angel at work.  Well, I didn't meet him really...we didn't shake hands. Rather, I felt him. And this 'meeting' forced a change in me. See, I never really believed in angels. Nice concept and all that but really, I thought they was just biblical lore and fodder for crappy  mass-produced posters all the sorority girls …
