    • I Will Rest In You
      It has been a long time since I was able to post here and recently was encouraged to start posting again.  I will start by posting a video for those who are battle weary from the spiritual onslaught going on during these last days.  Be encouraged, replenished, and comforted… you are not alone.

    • The Word as an Onion
        Too many merely accept the Word on the surface.  They pick and choose this verse or that and build their doctrine out of it.  One instance for example is that in regard to adultery.  God’s Word says that you should not commit adultery; wherefore, those who have not slept with someone outside of their […]

Coffee Memories With Friends

Posted by truthoughts on May 19, 2008

A cup of coffee and a chat with friends… this is what I miss the most. I am reminded of past friends and joys, by a fellow blogger that I read. So, I thought that I would write about that today.

I enjoyed nothing more than sitting with a close friend, drinking coffee and chatting about everything and nothing all at once. Growing up, through my teens and early twenties, I had some very close friends… the kind that you always knew what the other was thinking and could have conversations without words, just with a look – you would know.

Over the years, life has changed, through moving and growing in different paths, but the memories stayed behind, for comfort, for strength, for joyful thoughts.

There is something to be said about drinking caffeine in a free and inspiring attmosphere with eclectic music playing in the background. Sharing memories, sharing thoughts, laughing until you cry… these are the memories that I recall. These memories make me sigh.

One other enjoyment that we would have, is watching the people come and go. People watching: The art of studying the habitual rotation of the human spieces in the act of their behavior, while wondering if the person watching is the same.

I remember at times, laughing so hard at something that didn’t really make any sense, all were sure that someone was going to explode coffee through their nose. Ah, the memories…

Nowdays, the lines are longer, the prices are higher and the friends are fewer. Starbucks once was the place to go… in fact, it was the only place to go, but now, competition moves in and the enjoyment comes again. There is a little place that has just opened up in this area called Saxby’s Coffee. They, Saxby’s, are what Starbucks once was and hopes to be again, though unlikely to be obtained by Starbucks.

The coffee is great, the employees are extremely nice and their consistancy is unbeatable. I guess this is what happens when you start getting older, rationalization. When you are younger, you could drink muddy water as long as there was good music and friends around. Not so for me now.

Now, the rationale kicks in to say…”If I am going to pay x amount of money for this cup of coffee, it better be worth it”. Oh my, how times have changed.

So, now we have a Kiereg coffee maker, which is the best appliance in our home. It makes one cup of either, coffee, tea or hot chocolate, at a time. It pre-brews the water so it is ready at all times. You buy these little cuplettes of your favorite flavor (they come in all kinds), place it into the dispenser, push the button and whola, your drink is served. Then the best part is that to clean it, you just trow the cuplette away and prestow, it’s clean! I am in coffee heaven!

Oh, did I mention it is much cheaper than going to a coffee house??? I still get all of the flavors I want. Granted, you don’t get to people watch, unless it is through the window or on tv, but hey, it’s practically free.

So now, if I need to, I can have my coffee while listening to whatever music I like, then if I want to people watch, I can go to the mall or something… they can be just as entertaining there. The only thing left, is to figure out the friend part, since I now live so far out of town, it would be a road trip to visit…

So, for now, I will enjoy my coffee while listening to my music and reading the blogs that I love to read and thinking of the memories that once were and the memories that will be…

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood…

Posted by truthoughts on May 18, 2008

Today is such a beautiful day that I just had to write about it. There is a nice breeze blowing in through the windows and the sun is shining, illuminating everything with it’s warm glow. The birds are singing and preparing their nests, while the cats are enjoying the view. I have some swing king music on, Chet Baker is playing right now… now it changed to Anita O’Day. Oh, what a perfect day!

I found this picture, trying to capture how this day makes me feel: Click here for Source picture

 This is the kind of day that makes me want to just go for a drive or walk in a park. There use to be this pond where I use to live that had ducks in it and birds all around… I would love to go there and feed them. On really nice days, you could normally find at least 5 – 10 families there feeding the ducks. It was always nice to see the small children having their first experience with an animal almost their size, being able to feed them right from their own hands.

Many times, I would share what bread I had, with them when they would run out – they would be so happy. It was a great place to take children that I was babysitting, they always loved it. We would always have a picnic there as well… ah, memories… Click here for Source picture

 You know, I am beginning to notice how visually focused I am. By writing my blogs, I seem to always want to add images to my posts. I think it breaks it up and gives some color to my writing. Also, as they say, a picture is worth a 1,000 words, right? Well, I hope that everyone is having a great day. I am going to enjoy the weather and allow it to be a peaceful day.

Who Sings That Song???

Posted by truthoughts on May 16, 2008

Who sings that song, I asked Bradley, franctically trying to search every outlet I could get my little fingers on…

I didn’t know who was the singer of the song below until tonight. I searched all around and came up with another song, which turns out to be one of my favorites now. Anyway, the song I was originally looking for was, “No One” by Alicia Keys.

So, as I said, I ended up finding a song that I really like called “Everythings Gonna Be Alright” by Jamie with Sweetbox. After hearing the two songs, you may be able to understand how I came across this one.

Anyway, I guess I am in a melancholy mood today. I wasn’t sure of what to post about today, so Bradly suggested that I listen to a song and post about that… Well, here it is. I am not sure if anyone will listen to them, I have the second song on my favorite music page, but here they are.

When I first started my search for a song, I came across this next song… I was amazed at the strength and control of her voice. This song is “Everything Or Nothing” by Lisa Lavie.

So, let me know what you think of these songs and their voices. I hope that they post well… I know I had trouble embedding multiple video clips before publishing, in the past… so, hopefully it will come out alright. Enjoy!

The Legendary Sandra Dee

Posted by truthoughts on May 9, 2008

My fascination with the legendary actress, Sandra Dee began when I was very young. I first saw her in a movie called, “If A Man Answers” where she co-stared with her then husband, icon, Bobby Darin. Later, I saw more of her movies…

Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin met on the set of the movie, “Come September”, which was filmed in Italy. They were married right away and had a son named, Dodd Darin. Their marriage only lasted 7 years, but it was a match for an ideal image but rocky in reality.

I of course, was not aware of the rocky road they both traveled through their lives… I was just overwhelmingly captivated by her beauty and innocent image. She was what I wanted to be. I have added a page above, dedicated to her, with pictures and video clips.

I am saddened that many today are unaware of her, other than the tainted-fun-poking made at her by the famous movie, “Grease”. Most people are not aware that Sandra Dee is a real person who was the ideal of the teenage population in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

Sadly, Sandra Dee died on Feb. 20, 2005 from kidney failure. Most people don’t know this, but the morning that she passed away… I had a dream that she had died. It was so real. I spoke with her on the phone and then saw news reports of her passing (in my dream). As soon as I awoke, I told my husband. It was so real that he started looking on-line and on television to see if it had really happened. There was absolutely no news about it until later that night. Once we heard that it had actually happened, we just looked at each other in amazement. Weird, I know… but it happened.

I hope you will take a look at my Sandra Dee page and learn a little more about her. I am going to add a lot more information about her soon.

Here I Am Come And See

Posted by truthoughts on May 8, 2008

Ok, I am sooooo excited to have this site up and running now. I have another site HERE, which is on more of a serious note. I have posted some more loose topics like what you see in the tabs above, but they don’t really fit in that category… So, here I am!

I am excited to share with you my poems, stories, pictures, favorite music, favorite movies and other fascinations!

One thing that was much easier, was that all I had to do with some information… is to copy it over instead of creating it all from scratch. I still have a lot to do, but this site is far from bare. It is late now, so I will write a lot more tomorrow. Till then!!! 🙂 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
