Do You Use the Toilet in Front of Your Spouse?

Does using the toilet in front of your spouse suggest intimacy or is it completely unnecessary? SimplyJune weighs in. Her position: "What on earth is so important that you can not wait a few minutes? What life crisis made talking through the bathroom door unacceptable? What topic is so serious, you don't mind hearing random sound effects? It's just so wrong!" What do you think? ...more
No.  I would feel uncomfortable even after 28 years. more

Do You Trust the Right People?

Vanessa Williams didn't always trust the right people. She made this clear in You Have No Idea, the book that she and her mother, Helen Williams, wrote together. She mistrusted two photographers much to her detriment. Not many people would have bounced back successfully from being forced to step down as Miss America but Vanessa did. This is in part due to her also putting her trust in the right people. ...more

Not A Girlie Girl

I have never been or considered a "girlie girl.  Pantyhose is itchy.  Thongs: My ass has to be comfortable.  Rarely do I shave anything.  Bikinis show too much of my body.  That's only for Jake to see.  High heels feel like walking on stilts.  My hair is natural.  A perm feels like the hair on corpses and hair dye on an older woman can make her look hard and fake.  Hands are used for creating jewelry, so my nails are short and unpolished.  The bottom of my feet need to be hard because I walk barefoot outside....more

My Whimsical Garden Is Flourishing Green

What a delight it is to care for my garden, whimsical and flourishing green. Though in the brilliant heat of the sun I stand and squat and kneel and reach, happiest I am when I water and weed. Here, within my whimsical, green garden, I feel that much closer to God’s heart; for here I have found my oasis, long-overdue rest for my tired and parched spirit. Amidst my flourishing green garden, I see the beauty of God’s artistry, and I answer to His call to rest. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28....more

Ladies, what do you have in your purse?

My younger sister couldn’t stand it whenever she looked at my bag. I am always a fan of bigger hand bag. My argument? I can carry a lot of stuff. Why not! If I could fit in a cow. I would. Okay not quite! I can’t seem to recall when I started to need a purse. And by the time I have realized it, it was this big purse....more
