” Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave…”

Dear Reader:

Doesn’t it seem like, especially around holidays, that life speeds up and we start making a tangled mess out of everything trying to stay caught up with so much happening so fast?

The word ” tangled ” means ” giving the appearance of a state of utter disorder. ” As much as tangled objects like these below drive us bonkers… the real tangled problems lie farther below… within us.

Don’t you wish we could collect all our tangled objects and plop them in Jesus’ lap?

We can… when we quit depending on our own strength alone to solve our problems and believe in Hope in what God can do for us!

So until tomorrow… God alone can untangle the threads of our lives. Hope is all about handing over our tangled mistakes into God’s hands and the leaving them there!

Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh

Last night I babysat while John and Mandy attended Kaitlyn’s birthday party!!!Tomorrow I will show you some fun photos from it!

I got so ” tangled up” yesterday I forgot my birthday shout-out to Kaitlyn but I know it was a fun and funny one! Love ya Kaitlyn and Happy Birthday!

Please keep your prayers going for Brookie and her family-Ted’s funeral is tomorrow at the Presbyterian Church in Walterboro!

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”

    So sorry to hear of the passing of Brooke’s husband, Ted. You have such a special relationship with your “Ya’s”. You are blessed to have friends who are more like family in your life. I know that you mourn with Brooke like a sister. My thoughts & prayers are with Brooke & her family.
