Perfect Timing…

Does waiting drive you crazy? Children are counting down days til Christmas. Adults count days til the next big game, movie sequel, retirement – or you fill in the blank with your ‘can’t wait’ list. At the birth of Jesus the world had been…

Life, Liberty…

Regardless of the outcome of today’s election in America, there is only One who is in control. As a people we are where we are mostly out of neglect. Neglecting to incline our hearts to a God who is sovereign over every nation. “For…

Great-Full…

     Hard to believe we are approaching our all American Day of Thanksgiving. One day we set aside to be grateful… I can’t help but wonder where we would be as a nation if everyday we were grateful for just one thing. So blessed and…

So-ing Lessons…

     A lot can be learned from a thirteen year old… They like to use the word ‘so’ – a lot. ‘So, grandma, how did you and grandpa meet?’ My story made him smile wide and relax in his seat. (So, I guess I’m a…

Handkerchiefs?

     I have a collection… A little unusual as the use for these originally was to blow your nose… My collection started when my Nanny, a.k.a. grandmother, died and I was sent a few of her things. Some were doilies she had crocheted and…

Happy 4th of July!

   Today is my favorite holiday – I’ve often been asked why… Could be that I love summertime and it’s the true summer holiday. Could be that it usually means barbeques and our children. Could be I love fireworks… I was blessed with great…

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…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
