Soul Searching

For the past six weeks I’ve been on a sabattical from blogging.  At last that’s what I told everyone.  Actually, I’ve been filled with self-doubt about myself while sitting on a pity pot doing nothing.  I’ve been searching my soul to gain clarity on what my purpose is...

A Little Procrastination Can’t Hurt, Right?

I love to relax.  Since retirement, slumber and procrastination have become my new best friends.  I often say I’m busier in retirement than when I was working.  Could it be that I put off to the last minute things I used to take care of daily? Some people like to say...

Out of the Mouths of Babes

Whenever school is out, our grandkids come to visit — the six of them come dribbling in like a basketball team.  This year was unique because we introduced Buddy, the newest member of our farm family, to each of them.  I wasn’t prepared, though, for...

The Day After

Today is the day after the New Year.  It’s been six weeks of “days after” with holidays, family gatherings – every conceivable event that could blind side my goal toward achieving better health.  I’m realizing more and more how physical goals are so intertwined with...

Change of Plans

One of the biggest challenges I faced when we moved to the country is shopping – too few stores.  We didn’t face this problem in the Metroplex.  But what turned out to be a bummer at first, resulted in a real blessing in disguise, and it all revolves around my...

What Do You Worship?

Back in the olden days when I was a wee girl, the common question asked was “who” do you worship – meaning in whom do you place your faith?  Time moved on, however, and the “who” was replaced with “what” – meaning work, material objects, money, looks, power, etc. ...

The Reason for the Season

In case you didn’t know, Christmas is fast approaching.  The stores have been announcing its arrival since July.  If only I could hear more “Merry Christmas” and less “Happy Holidays,” with a stronger emphasis on giving than on receiving, I’d be a happy camper. ...

All Creatures Great and Small

When you live in the country, you get used to having critters around.  There are large critters (cows and horses), and small critters (pigs, goats, sheep, dogs and cats).  Since living in God’s country, our lives have been pretty much routine with our two big, fluffy...

True Leaders

I was held captive by the ceremonies honoring our beloved 41st President.  Honored worldwide, his legacy for leadership and his life of virtue will endure through the ages.  On the very day President George H.W. Bush was laid to rest, I attended the service of a sweet...

Miracles Big or Small

Reports came out last week that Bible scholars believe the legendary Ark of the Covenant from the Old Testament accounts may have been moved to Africa after it was taken out of Israel.  The Ark is said to be a gold-covered wooden chest containing two stone tablets on...

The Power of Love

When I first heard of the death of a young American while trying to share the gospel to one of the most isolated tribes in the world, I was intrigued, yet not surprised.  Missionaries have been sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for centuries, many meeting horrible...

Honoring a Mother

My earthly mother passed away over 20 years ago.  I have no doubt she is in Heaven and I will see her again.  Although I know in my head she is in glory, my heart still misses her.  No matter how old the child, when your mother leaves this world and you have no one to...

In the Doghouse

We love our dogs.  Scooter and Teeny were the cutest puppies ever – all white fluff and big coal-black eyes.  That was then.  Today, we still love them, but at a year old, they have entered puberty and they have a mind of their own.  They don’t understand time out, so...
