Choices

I am writing this at the end of a very long day, and for that matter, a very long week, and come to think of it, an incredibly long month. I am tired and I find myself wanting to climb into bed and just stay there for a day or two. Have you ever found … Continue reading »

I’ve loved Mr. T since the eighties. He’s truly a gentle giant and a strong Christian, who has used his … Continue reading »

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Today is St. Patrick’s Day. I really like this holiday. There’s no pressure to buy anything. Everyone just wears green and celebrates our supposedly, Irish roots, while looking for leprechauns.

Last weekend, we were blessed with a beautiful, sunny day. My family spent the entire day in the yard working on various projects.

Walking by Faith

On Sunday morning, my hubby gently tapped me and informed me that we had missed springing forward for daylight savings time. We have never done that before, but interestingly enough, I wasn’t filled with the need to rush. I had actually been dreaming about the song we were singing that morning in the choir.

Blooming Where We Are

Yesterday, when I arrived home from work, I grabbed a chair and collapsed onto my deck. I sat in the warmth of the March sunshine, listened to the birds and tried to breathe deeply. It had been a long day and a long week and I still had another day to go. Nothing bad had … Continue reading »
