This is a "guest" post from ME...12 years ago...on my first blog. Lots has changed in twelve years. Now, I'm a retired teacher that doesn't keep track of the forecast hoping with my students for a snow day. The first winter of retirement, that was a strange transition for me. Anyone who knows me knows … Continue reading White as Snow!
Long time, no see. 😬 It has been too long! But here I am, working to put writing back into my routine! I just started a study called Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be by Donna Partow. It’s a 90 day look at all areas of our lives and uses the Proverbs 31 … Continue reading Time with God…Setting the Tone for My Day
Today, let’s look at probably what is the next most remembered part of Psalm 23... Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I fear no evil, for You are with me;Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 NASB While this certainly should bring us comfort when literally walking … Continue reading More thoughts on Psalm 23— Part 2
Psalm 23:1-3 When you hear the 23rd Psalm, what immediately comes to your mind? For me, funerals. So much so that there have been times I did not find comfort from this very familiar Psalm. Instead of leaning into the comfort it offers, I'd find myself leaning away to try to avoid the thoughts and … Continue reading New Learning from a Familiar Psalm–Part 1
In no way do I see myself as an "influencer" in the social media world. I do, however, love to share about things I love! I think that is one of the reasons I have always enjoyed direct sales. When I find great products, I want others to get to try them, too. So let … Continue reading Favorites! A Wave We Go by Bed Head
It's funny where God teaches the lessons of life. For me, those lessons often come when I least expect it. ONE of this past week's lessons came while on a long, hard walk. We spent the last week and a half camping at our favorite lake. During the summer months, we are able to stay … Continue reading Worn Paths
It has been several months since I sat down to write. Well actually...it's been several months since anything came from me sitting down to write. Many times, I've found myself at the computer, looking at a blank screen, and wondering what in the world I have to say that others may want to read. But … Continue reading Reset…Renew…Restart!
Some of you may not know that I grew up steeped in Southern Gospel music. Daddy led the music and Mama played the piano at Beech Grove Baptist Church many years of my childhood. He played the guitar and sang all the time. From early in life, he had Becky and me singing right along … Continue reading Swing Wide the Gates…
I don't know about you, but I've let the chaos of the last weeks get the best of me. Anxiety. Migraines. Crying spells. Wanting to just scream. This morning, I came across a church service being streamed and the worship team was singing this song, Because He lives! Dear Lord, Turn Our Fear into Faith! … Continue reading Because He Lives!
It's been a month+ since I've dropped in here. I'm sorry. I still enjoy writing, but I find I have so many other things to do that this gets pushed to the back burner. Today I want to talk about this little saying... First, I think this looks different and means different things to … Continue reading Create a Life…
