Homesick…

My parents divorced when I was young. I came to Florida each year to see my dad – my only time with him. Torn between two homes. I used to love airports, the smell of jet fuel and the hustle bustle. Then I had…

Hold My Hand…

Sometimes we just need to squeeze a hand that loves us. During labor I watched as my daughter fiercely squeezed her husband’s hand. When I got close to her face once she grasped my hand with all her might as well. And when her…

Just Sing…

There’s a new song out – a little album done mostly for kids – you know, like you and me. Kids still on the inside – that we see a glimmer of now and then. (More about the song at the end.) Every new…

Right There…

Ever help a turtle find his way back to water? A little soft shell guy found himself in the middle of my hot concrete driveway. He wasn’t moving. Ever since a turtle got hold of my son’s finger one summer long ago, I’ve been…

Growing Up…

Recently I discovered I had made a mistake that bruised my ego in many ways: I looked foolish, like I had no attention to detail – and it could have caused some real problems. Oh how hard it was to fess up to the…

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…

Define Rich…

Ever dream of finding a bag of money or discovering you were left a vast inheritance by a long, lost relative? We live in a crazy world where, by all appearances, money solves all one’s woes. The quest for more doesn’t seem to have…

Pull Your Knife…

 If you ever find yourself in the presence of a mountain lion pull your knife, lock eyes, and stand your ground. Pastor Larry Adams recounted the story of someone who researched these animals and was caught off guard on one of his ‘field trips’….
