Right There…

These days I wonder more about terms like ‘leap of faith’ or ‘stepping into the unknown’. So easily we forget how near, how intimate our God is with us. Knows the number of hairs on our heads. Knows our thoughts before we speak them….

You Are Qualified…

Thirty-four years – celebrating a life together. As strong ocean breezes toss my hair, I wander back in time. Years ago a prideful young man and a selfish young woman found a grace-full God and determined they would live a life with God at…

With All My Heart…

Marriage – a pledge to love despite obstacles and with all your heart. Parenting – we commit to meet their needs and love them with all our heart. Friendship – requires a lot of work (and a good one is worth it) – and…

Promises, Promises…

When I was little girl my friends and I would often say to each other: ‘Promise?’ An expectation that whatever we just told each other, we would follow through. Little girl years are a great learning ground for life – not all promises are kept….

Promise 33

     Hope story – God is ever present… Once there was a girl and her mom – just the two of them. Tomy was mom’s name, and her always smiling daughter was Jody. Tomy always looked for love in men who loved her for…

This Life…

     There are times that mark a life – when hurricanes came and turned our lives upside down, when a loved one died, when 9/11 changed everything… Reminders – life here is never static, always changing, growing us…temporary. Sometimes we try to go back – back to…

Thirsty Love…

     Lots of flowers in pots and a raised bed garden means…lots of watering. To garden like this means you’ve really got to love it – those little yellow marigold skirts and petunia faces are thirsty. My love part: water. Their love part: looking…

The Anniversary…

     31 Years is a long time, a short time. Sweet are the memories – young years spent planning, child rearing years spent smiling, remaining years spent hand in hand… Last year the longest married couple in America celebrated their 81st anniversary – they…

HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME
