I went out west to visit my family for spring break. Here are a few pictures from my week with my precious nieces It was an unexpected trip but one that I am so grateful for because last week when I got back my dog Duke passed away 😦 I think the Lord knew I needed the happy week so I could…

It’s A New Day!

Birds flying high You know how I feel Sun in the sky You know how I feel Reeds driftin’ on by You know how I feel It’s a new dawn It’s a new day It’s a new life For me And I’m feeling good I’m feeling good…. The lyrics to Michael Buble’s song, “Feeling Good,” are going through my mind this morning as I think about how we all have a “fresh” start for this […]

More Important Than Lunch

Our daughter Maria never ceases to amaze me!  She is truly a gift from God, my little rock at times. She was right by my side 2 years ago when a car ran a red light and T-boned us, resulting in a collapsed lung, broken ribs and a broken clavicle for me.  Thank the Lord, just some abdominal bruises for her! We never knew what hit us that day. As we sat there waiting for […]

“Be glad in God.!” Philippians 3:1 MSG …Why should I be glad in God? “But you, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.” Psalm 3:3 NKJV “God’s a safe-house for the battered, a sanctuary during bad times. The moment you arrive, you relax;  you’re never sorry you knocked.” Psalm 32:7 MSG “God’s my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore, throws garlands of hosannas […]

Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about what to wear?  A perfect world (for most women, me included) would be to just get up every morning, put your clothes on and go out the door, without having another thought about what you had on. Wait, I guess we do need to worry, some choices may not be too flattering…right?  And, those pants went out of style 2 years ago!  Oh shoot, that […]

Make A Run For It

The phrase “make a run for it” means…to suddenly start running in order to escape from somewhere. I often picture God and or Jesus, standing at the end of a road, or a beautiful pathway with arms wide open. When I know I’ve let go of His hand at one time or another, the Holy Spirit directs my eyes to that pathway where I see myself running into His arms. “God charts the road you […]

Not Just One Word…

I’ve sought after the “one” word for a New Year before.  I’ve even had an “unword” one year.  But this year, I have a verse for 2016.  Not just one word, but many! Let me share my verse with you… “For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior; faith expressed in love.” Galatians 5:6 The Message I have been praying and […]

There Goes The Neighborhood

Kevin, Maria and I went to a Christmas dance recital last weekend, and something that the emcee said…well, I just can’t seem to get it off of my mind! He welcomed us all, but not just any welcome…it came from his heart, and he made no apologies for what he shared with us all. When he said that Eugene Peterson got it right about the Christmas story, I sat up straight and was very interested […]

My Great God Cares For Me

 As I was going to see my Mother in the nursing home one afternoon, crossing the Hiwassee river, something caught the corner of my eye that was up on one of the tall telephone polls that graced the bridge. Since no cars were passing me, I did a double take.  Was that a nest? Not only one, but two of them!  If those were nests, they were the biggest bird nests I had ever seen! […]
