Waiting

We are getting ready to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary this summer. T h i r t y – f i v e years. It seems like yesterday when we first met. How has time slipped by so quickly? Maybe it has something to do with life. You know – those things that fill our […]

Don’t let the forecast ruin your day

It’s been a very rainy weekend. The first question that popped into my head yesterday afternoon is why do we often lose interest in doing anything – even inside – when it’s raining? Our day instantly became a read- a- book or binge watch tv kind of day. The second question that came out of […]

Still Climbing…

I’ve read where people have climbed a mountain alone. I can’t begin to imagine how scary that would be. If you need help, where do you turn? Is it really that big of a deal to tackle a mountain alone? Just like life – we need people. We need God. The mountain I’ve been climbing […]

LOVE IS NOT BLIND

  We are here to love others. How are you doing that today? I recently met a very sweet woman who lives in a nursing home.  I really don’t know a lot about her other than the few things she shared with me when I visited with her. I was careful not to ask a […]

The End is Only the Beginning

Fall. Some people love it, while others dread it. I guess it depends on where you live. It was always one of my favorite seasons when I lived in Indiana. Humidity was gone. Leaves were stunning. The change in weather (cooler temps) meant you could wear different clothes, and enjoy different activities. Even your menu […]

Lessons from a toddler

Have you ever been caught off guard and discovered that someone was either hurt, influenced, or inspired by something you did or said? God certainly has a way of revealing lessons in the most subtle way. I just got back to Florida after spending a few days in Minnesota. I went from 89 degree weather […]
