miss you

Good morning dear hearts.  Wish I had time to write a long newsy post for you this morning. Problem is I’ve been working long hours in my new position as “Business Consultant” and those hours come from my CCB time allotment.  Our schedule is Friday through Wednesday,  so posting here is going to be sparse for…

Today has been remarkable! For the first time in over two decades I spent the day working in someone else’s office. What a mess!  Don’t they teach the A B C’s in school anymore? The office I volunteered to ‘organize’ has been managed for the past several months by a young woman who portrayed herself as a…

Yesterday, October 22, 2012, we had the day off from our new work. We’ve been ‘on’ for seven straight days—a huge blessing—that I haven’t had time to write about. Stay tuned…I will. It was a day for catching up. Washing—the clothes hamper was overflowing. Shopping—the cupboards were bare. Reading—my Inbox was full. Etc. etc. etc.…

Late in 2009 Dick was asked to speak on a Sunday evening for the small congregation where we were attending church. His topic was Trusting In The Lord For All Things. He carried his toy boat along as a prop, told them the story, and then suggested that the Lord would do exceedingly, abundantly above…

“The word “peculiar” is found in Titus 2:14. Christians are the peculiar people of God. We use the word sometimes when we speak of something odd or strange. But this is not its use here. The word is translated from the Greek word which is made up of two words, one which means ‘around’, as…

Occasionally the Lord has blessed us with an opportunity to share our stories and His blessings to us with others IRL (in real life).  Each opportunity allows us to say: “Live simply, love generously, serve faithfully, speak truthfully, pray daily, and leave everything else to God. This is the way of peace. Through the years…

Have I mentioned that I am an only child? I am also a Daddy’s girl. After asking Christ into my life and learning that God’s Word was the manufacturer’s handbook for my newly created life, I began to understand the significance of being a child of God. It has been said, “New Christians should be…

Comfortably settled in front of the south-facing studio windows, listening to the whir of the lawn mower as Dick moves back and forth across the yard, late September afternoon sun-light pours in upon the pages of my novel. I’ve read this book a few times before. It’s like a visit with an old familiar friend,…
