Something to Behold

My husband and I have been AirBNB hosts for about five years.  Last June, 2023, I received two reservations for both of our cabins within a week for the exact same dates (April 7-9, 2024). I thought to myself, “Well, this is strange. I wonder what’s going on...

The Dash In Between

Since time began, every human on the face of the earth began with a start date (birth) and an end date (death).  What shows up in between is a dash … standing for the life between the start and finish.  We see the dash in obituaries and on grave markers all...

In His Image

I look forward to Easter every year. It’s a time of new beginnings.  As a child, I was excited about the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, lots of candy, and my new Easter clothes.  Then as I grew older, my faith matured, and I became intrigued how my...

Time to Come Home

I read something fascinating this week.  In the British Isles, a sheep was found after hiding out in a cave for a total of six years.  The fleece on the sheep continued to grow over those six years since it was not near a shearer.  When the sheep was...

My Way or The Highway

I attended a large meeting this week.  It was the first time I attended this particular function.  I had heard through the grapevine that this particular group’s meetings could  be heated and contentious. Well, I showed up, walked in the door prepared...

To Vote or Not to Vote

In case you haven’t heard, we are in the midst of an election year. There are many who know who they will vote for, many who don’t have a clue, and many who wouldn’t vote if their life depended on it. I get it … people are upset about what’s not being done in our...

The Best Strategy

Today I’m ready to watch the 58th Super Bowl battle (Kansas City v. San Francisco). I’ve watched football my whole life.  Sadly, what I know about the game could (maybe) fill a thimble. I say I watch the game, but what I really do is watch the Super Bowl...

I Have Friends

In 2009, I went on my church’s choir/orchestra tour to Argentina. It was a fantastic trip, but I was really pushing the envelope for me to get outside my “comfort zone.”  What a trip! What sights to see! Everyone was taking pictures and posting on Facebook so...

We got a Great Pyrenees puppy in June.  Solid white, fluffy fur, and big black eyes --- he’s cute (and he knows it).  We call him Snowball. Now that he’s eight months old, he’s entered his teenage years and everything looks good on the other side of the...
