Wonder-full Plans…

I’m noticing lately all us wanderers. I can’t help but think: what if, instead, we were wonderers? We wander around stores looking for gifts. We wander around outdoors seeking quiet. We wander all our days and what do we find? Emptiness mostly. So I’m…

Have Fun…

Remember your mom calling after you as you went out to play: ‘Have fun…’ ? It’s a bit hard to recall just how that works. How does one have fun when the bills pile high, the workload grows, sad things creep in? I have…

Soaked…

Rain, rain, rain – for weeks. The canvas canopy over an outdoor swing was sagging – I pushed up and – whoosh – over the edge cascaded water. It caught the attention of my one year old grandson, but I hadn’t noticed he had walked…

Just Try…

Aren’t we all a little tired or tweets, likes, smileys, and thumbs up? The constant desire for more and the let down of not being ‘liked’ – by people we don’t even know. Maybe we need an ‘insincere love’ break. Facebook posts get lost in…

Have It All…

It’s been a long, hot summer  – and not just here, and not just the weather. Here the usual relief of afternoon downpours often haven’t happened. Then there’s the flooding in Louisiana – and we count our blessing of not too much. There’s the…

Hope Living…

     “Blessed is the one who perseveres and does the hard things. Tough times never last but those who hang tight to God always do.” Ann Voskamp Our hearts know we have a living Hope, God’s word assures us this is so. So we…

Old Is New…

     The boots didn’t fit well and it was her special present from me this Christmas. I told her this was a bonus as we could pick a day to return them and find ones that she liked even better and that fit just…

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…

Dice & Laughter…

     If laughter is the best medicine, then twelve ladies in my neighborhood must be the healthiest around. Once a month we get together and play a silly dice game called bunko. It doesn’t take any strategy or effort – so we throw dice…

My Sunshine…

     Did your mother ever sing to you ‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey…”? Mine did… I miss her… She also came in some mornings singing ‘Wake up, wake up you sleepy head. The sun…

Mailbox…

     Who doesn’t like walking down to the mailbox? Maybe yours is by your door and you don’t have to go far – or maybe yours is grouped with others and so sometimes its a meeting place… I think the postal carrier smiles whenever she/he comes…
