Color

A couple weeks ago, friends from our church gave us a lovely house warming gift from their home – cone flowers. I watched as she carefully dug them up after a good rain. I couldn’t wait to plant them in our flower garden. They were special of course since they came from a friend, and […]

Count with Me

After many delays, we finally flew home from Dallas late last night. I had the window seat. Although that’s normally my preference, I was a little anxious after learning that my husband had to sit a few rows back. It’s not that I mind flying. As a matter of fact, I tend to relax as […]

Resolution

It’s about 10:00 pm here, and like most of you — I’ve been thinking about this year. It’s been pretty unusual for all of us. No matter how much you try to avoid it, you can’t help but think about all the sadness that has surrounded us and all the changes. When I was asked […]

My Prayer

Dear Lord, You already know what’s on my mind. However, you know how important it is for me to say this out loud. This Thanksgiving was so very different. Life is different. Every time I hear the phone ring, I know it’s bad news. We’ve lost a lot of people – not the normal age […]

Smell this

Although I didn’t have a difficult time falling asleep last night, I sure woke up several times throughout the night and my brain would NOT rest. There’s a lot going on in the world and my personal life right now, however, all of that didn’t consume my thoughts this time. I am an IA in […]
