Fear Not

I recently joined a Facebook group that lets our community/county know when (and why) 911 has been called in the area. I’m telling you what, after seeing all the crime that takes place in our safe neck of the woods, it makes me want to stay in and never leave! Like, who wants to go […]

Walls

Hey. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. I’ve been busy (just like everyone else) and man, a lot has happened these last few weeks. First. tornadoes ripped through a few states not too far away from here — far enough that we weren’t in any kind of danger. However, the storms were close […]

How’s your heart?

I had to see a cardiologist last week. What prompted this appointment was high blood pressure and the results from an EKG. A PA put me on a new Rx a few weeks ago that seemed to take care of my bp, however, my EKG indicated I needed further testing. I had a stress test, […]

Storms

A summer storm just darted through our area. It’s been a long while since I’ve heard the rolling thunder in the near distance. Clouds were somewhat dark, and the rain gently tapped the windows.

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 […]

Be Strong and Courageous

I have recently listened to several different stories and prayer requests for people who are struggling to make it through this life. I’m talking about people who are exhausted because they’re battling something that is threatening their life.
