History in the Making

Memorial Day is devoted to honor the men and women who have served to defend and protect this great country near and abroad.  Each one, living or passed, has sacrificed to allow you and me to enjoy the freedoms often taken for granted.  They each have a story to tell...

A Family Affair

They came from near and far to celebrate a wonderful member of the community.  In anticipation of a truly great event, family, friends, and neighbors started their travels early in the morning to arrive in time for the “big surprise.”  It wasn’t a birthday, holiday or...

To Mothers Everywhere

Mother’s Day is fast approaching … a time to honor mothers who are still with us, remember those who are not, and celebrate the mothers who are yet to be.  Living on a farm, I often observe life from a different perspective.  Let me share what happened recently. I was...

How Do You Respond?

Being pro-life, I am always interested in the state of our culture.  Do we celebrate life? … or are we a culture of death through abortion?  While statistically, it appears our culture is changing to embrace life, there seems to be that one person on every corner who...

When God Comes Knocking

  I have worked a long time … since I was 19 (ah, yes, to be young again).  I retired two times during my career.  The first time was in 2014.  I told my husband I had had enough of corporate life and wanted to retire while I was still young enough to remember...

Who Do You Trust?

Let’s face it.  The longer a person lives, the more decisions must be faced.  Where do I go to school?  What should I be when I grow up?  Who do I marry?  Should I change jobs?  Where should I live?  Who should I vote for?  Is my doctor the best?  Where should I...

Three Days

I attended what some would call a women’s retreat this past weekend.  Oh, I had doubts before going – I had done this before … sign up, show up, then wanting to leave after three hours.  I wasn’t expecting the impact three days could have on me.  It turned out to be...

One Big Happy Family

I have to say I am part of one big happy (for the most part) family.  Sometimes I don’t know what to do with them, and sometimes I don’t know how to love them, but we always laugh (at ourselves and each other), cry when hurt, fuss and sputter.  I have no...

Packing Light

It’s been almost two years now when we packed all our worldly possessions and made the move from the big city to rural life.  We sold and gave away a lot of “stuff.”  I promised myself and others I would never again obtain so many “things.”  Well, that promise didn’t...

Baby Steps

It’s been some time since I reported on my journey toward better health.  I wish I could tell you that I am 100% off all medications, have lost all the weight I need to lose, and my compromised immune system has taken a 180 turn to the better.  That is not the case. ...

Friends Forever

  This is dedicated to the dearest friend anyone could hope for.   It’s hard for someone my age to grasp new concepts – it takes longer and takes a lot more effort.  I don’t understand Instagram at all, but I really like to text (whatever can save me time).  When...

Silent Sufferers

I’m dedicating this post to the many women, men and families who have suffered loss through abortion.  More than likely, someone you know is post-abortive. You hear it everyday … TV, radio, internet, newspapers.  Abortion remains a hot and divisive issue long...

It’s Time to Make Your Stand for Life!

If there ever was a time for all citizens to make a stand for life, it is NOW.  After four attempts, Congress has blocked legislation which would protect children born alive after an abortion.  Prayerfully consider what steps you can make TODAY.   It’s been said...
