FIND YOUR VOICE

We love our pups.  We have two big, white, fluffy Great Pyrenees.  When we moved to the country in 2017, we felt our lives were complete – cows, a horse, and pups.  Then a stranger showed up. Buddy, a small pit/terrier mix, entered our lives three years ago. ...

Finish the Race

I’ve never been an athlete.  I figured there was a reason for scooters in stores and moving walkways in airports, and I could help them stay in business if I continued using them. Well, I was wrong. As I am now well past the age to know better, I realize the...

NO PAIN, NO GAIN

I’ve been on a health kick lately.  If you know me, I tend to be an “all or nothing” type of gal, so I’m moving away from eating anything and everything (in moderation, of course), to eating Mediterranean, gluten free, lactose free, sugar free. My friends say I’m...

The Power Bigger Than Our Problems

David meeting his "giant" I was raised in Texas, right in the middle of the Bible Belt.  My family went to church twice on Sundays, once on Wednesdays, and in between for Training Union and Girl’s Auxiliary.  Since I was knee-high to a grasshopper I have...

A LASTING LEGACY

Last week, hubby called me sobbing.  In 34 years, he’s only cried three times, so I knew something was terribly wrong.  Our good friend of 20+ years had just died from a battle with leukemia.  At this point, hearing Cary, I started crying, too. I’ve...

WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT

Psalm 91:4 He covers me with His feathers, and under His wings I take refuge; His truth is a shield and armour. When You Least Expect It Over the past several years (since my last blog post), a lot has happened. Health concerns, change in routines, family loss --...

The Journey to Health: The Long Road

My momma and daddy always told me, “Deborah Jan, nothing’s worth having unless you have to work hard for it.”  I always hated to hear them say that, but now I know how right they were.  Doubly so when you’re working toward a goal of good health. I received a great...

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

I look forward to time with my gal friends from the Big City.  A few weeks back I had lunch with my pal/gal (no, not “Sal”).  Always a hoot -- always entertaining – almost like going to a movie (the only thing missing is the popcorn).  However, when her tone turns...

One Big Baby

As I detailed earlier in my post of May 9, 2019, I shared what happened to our neighbor’s cow whose birth was stillborn.  That turned into a traumatic event for the bovines, we humans and our canines.  Fortunately, our neighbor found a cute little bottle calf, whom he...

The Grass Is Always Greener

Since I was knee high to a grasshopper, my family would tell me, “Deborah Jan, just you wait, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.”  Ever since then, I’ve looked on both sides of every fence wherever I go. Once we moved to the country, I found a...

Climb Every Mountain

I’ve seen a lot of mountains this year – Alaska, California, Colorado, New Mexico.  Breathtakingly beautiful all.  Whenever I experience a change from the East Texas piney woods and Texas heat, God’s creation is there to remind me what an outstanding artist He is. ...

There Are No Words

It doesn’t take long to find suffering in this world.  Sudden loss can be catastrophic to an individual or family.  It’s at such a time you realize there really are no words that can express your sorrow for your friends/family/fellow man. Within the last year I’ve had...

Here I Am – Send Me

This week we celebrate freedom.  From coast to coast the 4th of July is celebrated with fireworks, parades, and hot dogs fresh off the grill.  Freedom is worth celebrating, but the older I get I realize more and more the sacrifices it takes for the freedom we enjoy....

North to Alaska

I’m an all or nothing kind of gal.  It takes me a while to make a decision, but once I do I tend to jump in with both feet … full steam ahead.  When I told hubby that we needed to take that big “trip” we had always talked about, I was ready to jump in with all fours....
