A friend posted something on her social media page this week that triggered a memory that made me smile. She said she didn't write it, but re-posted from an unknown author; nevertheless, it hit home for me. With all of the unknown, anxiety and confusion that is swirling around all of us in the midst… Continue reading See Past the Inconvenience
Today is the day, the seventh of March, in the year 2020. My new thing,"This is Sixty," is here! No, it's not some new movement (although it could be, I suppose.) Today is the day that I get to consider sixty years of life -- sixty years of God's amazing blessing on my life. In… Continue reading I See It – This is Sixty
Worship comes in many different ways. Allow yourself to experience worship in new and intimate ways!
Happy New Year all around! Since it is the new year, and a new decade to boot, I figured it was time to attempt to get my unmotavited self motivated again! I am not a resolution kind of gal by nature, so I am not going to make any promises that I won't keep just to be… Continue reading Looking Toward Patience — Resolution?? I Think Not!
I felt like a little girl today. I don't mean one of those times when you do something silly and think that is what a little girl would do. I truly, truly felt like a child, joyfully enjoying time with her daddy. Joy is sometimes an elusive thing. You believe it exists, you try to… Continue reading Joy – With Closed Eyes In the Presence of My Father
What the heck are "drippy eyes?" Well, mine recently! I am not certain that anyone has even missed me, but, I have been away for a while. The intent of my writing has always been to uplift and encourage - NEVER to hurt or inflict pain on anyone, ever, ever - EVER! I am afraid… Continue reading Drippy Eyes
There is a different kind of silence bouncing around between the two houses here on Scenic Drive this weekend; and, I am certain, reverberating three hours away toward middle Tennessee also. Sudden, unforeseen, painful. Silence so completely unexpected - the kind that leaves broken hearts and tears. I have mentioned our spoiled princess pup a few… Continue reading Looks Pretty Silent Around Here
As the last few hours of 2018 fade away into yesteryear, with the first breaths of the new year upon us, I am going to go ahead and share with you, that for me, the upcoming year will encompass the big “D.” Yep... afraid so. It needs to be. I'm not ashamed. There are a lot… Continue reading The Flash and Flicker of Our Promises
Since today is Christmas, I suppose I will tell my Santa story. Have you ever had the incredible sensation that, "This IS the REAL Santa Claus?" I will tell you, it is quite a peculiar feeling for someone that is a few Christmases away from the fancy that "This could be more than Santa's helper." I mean, seriously,… Continue reading The Twinkle in His Eye
We had snow this morning, big, fat, juicy flakes that dropped and clung to every surface, piling up, settling as mounds of fluffy white. As I gaze out the window upon a winter wonderland, I inhale the beauty - because the rain is on the way, and the unsullied covering blanketing all imperfections will soon be gone. As young… Continue reading The Light We Don’t Have to Lose
