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...

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. ...
