What’s Ahead?

Truth? For everyone who ever has, is, or will walk this earth – nothing is static. Life changes – sometimes gradually, sometimes in an instant. About two thousand years ago Jesus’ cousin John was born. His papa hadn’t been able to speak since learning…

You Belong…

Oh the heart pain of not belonging. I remember during middle school being in a new group of peers, unsure where I belonged. I just wanted a good friend like I remembered from grade school. To my shame I hurt some to try and…

Looking for Roots, Finding our Way…

I was given the gift of DNA testing through Ancestry.com this year. There’s a lot of missing information in my family tree. At times we’re all trying to figure out who we are, aren’t we? Recently from that test someone contacted me based on the fact…

Things I Thought…

Ever say “I can’t get by without ____ or I can’t live without _____”? Things I thought I couldn’t live without: a paycheck – until my husband’s business failed – we had three children at home – I didn’t work. We’re all here. Air conditioning – until being at…

Goodness Grace

Thanks—giving. Maybe separating the words a little shows the heart of the celebration. Not Thanks-getting, but the giving of thanks. Christmas is up in the stores before turkeys for the table are being shipped. We barely breathe in the aroma of our favorite foods before we…

InSight…

     Spending time – the only sure way to truly know another soul. Sometimes a brief chat on the phone lifts our spirits, but nothing replaces a good heart-to-heart, hours-long soul searching with someone you love and care about. I’ve had the privilege to bare my soul and…

So Much…

     Florida isn’t having autumn – still muggy, still 80+ degrees. But we have snow on the lawn… Well, this time of year a profusion of flowers breaks out over every grassy area. One day it just appears, last a couple of weeks and then it’s…

In God Do We?

     Are we losing it – t r u s t ? A nation pulling further away, at times unrecognizable any longer as believers in the one true God. That’s what we see and hear on the networks, the papers, the hype… That’s what we see in…

The Job

A young man set out one morning – to make his way in the world. He had a family and they needed him to make his mark. His car was old, but his shirt was clean and pressed. He had tried so hard so…

PORCH SWING

Eyes closed, head back, breeze enveloping me – I hear it even now: creak…creak. The sound of the porch swing, the chirps of the crickets and frogs. It’s how time used to be whiled away – on a front porch when day’s work was…
