Then Monday…

Ever have one of those? A Monday – the one you weren’t expecting but thought you had all planned? Not too long ago Tuesday was supposed to be a blue sky, low temp, low humidity South Florida day (those get rarer this time of…

6 Replacements, No 7

A rumbling whoosh of electricity – exclamations of ‘what was that?’. He runs outside checking, I go from room to room. Then I see it, fire in the oven.  The element in our oven super-heated as I warmed breakfast. We called about replacement parts,…

No End Beginning…

A lazy spring day, long lunch with a friend, the perfect vacation – things we wish wouldn’t end. It’s hard for us humans – endings. Simple things like a beautiful day are one thing but the death of a sweet friend? Unless…it’s not the…

Planted Where?

Not a master gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but I love containers with green and colors flowing over. What you and I don’t see is the spidery roots warm and cozy down in the soil. Drinking up moisture and nutrients and anchoring…

Wonder-full Plans…

I’m noticing lately all us wanderers. I can’t help but think: what if, instead, we were wonderers? We wander around stores looking for gifts. We wander around outdoors seeking quiet. We wander all our days and what do we find? Emptiness mostly. So I’m…

All I Want…

Christmas lists are being made. Toys, games for the young. Clothes, electronics for the adults. And more. So here’s a prayer to carry into the coming month – a little something to rest in, to rejoice over, to remember for The Gift… Let not…

Have Fun…

Remember your mom calling after you as you went out to play: ‘Have fun…’ ? It’s a bit hard to recall just how that works. How does one have fun when the bills pile high, the workload grows, sad things creep in? I have…
