Happy Ending…

Don’t you love a good book? Fiction or non-fiction – written well, I can’t get enough. Especially the happy ending ones. The book of John ends this way: “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I…

Living Now…

Day to day life is a bit different lately. A lot more thought given to running a quick errand, and here in Florida, no more beach trips for the time being – or any fun places for that matter. But the living is a…

Unsettling…

Normal is no more. Years of normal definitely tell me this isn’t it. Sheltering in place – like during a storm, only the weather isn’t the issue. Covering faces and hands. Avoiding hugging, not getting close. Jobs gone in a matter of days. Unsettling…

This is the Life…

It’s different – being older. When my favorite three year old comes over and we come up with ideas of what to do next we both go full speed saying: “Let’s do it!” I think at three there is only one speed – full…

Some moments we just wish wouldn’t end. Moments like when a three year old puts his arm around your neck and says: “Grammy I stay with you forever!” In the midst of laughter and fun come heart-felt words spoken by the innocence of childhood….

Better His Presence…

Sometimes the most fun days are those spent sitting and laughing with someone we love. My hubby, my best friend, my children, and now grandchildren. Their presence making life sweet. Sometimes a quiet, no-interruption day complete with breezes and mountains and a good book…

Never Lost – Have GHS…

Easy access to GPS has truly changed how we get from here to there. Used to be we would listen carefully to someone’s directions, or for a longer trip we made sure we had maps. I am so impressed with the pioneers of old….

There is a Name…

Out of town recently we were staring up at the ornate architecture of a 150 year old building when I hear my husband’s name being called. I’m thinking: ‘who could possibly be here in this mountain town that knows us?’ It was heartwarming to…
