I remember the day in 1999 when I made this cover. Someone recently said they would like to hear it, so I’m posting it here. It reminds me of a very special day. John and Pat Dryden had been married for years, but wanted to renew their vows, in church, and had a beautiful ceremony … Continue reading This is the Day
Here’s the audio link for those of you following my FaceBook Unwavering Book Study. After playing with this for TWO hours, I’ve discovered that Face book does not do audio unless the audio is uploaded somewhere else on line. So after a massive learning curve, ENJOY! Continue reading The Best Things
So to speak . . . After 12 months of studying minimalism I have come to a conclusion. It’s not about all the stuff crammed in my basement in boxes that I haven’t looked through in 10 years. It’s not about getting rid of stuff and living in a 500 square foot apartment. It’s not … Continue reading On the road again . . .
Here I am, sitting at my blog post and trying to decide how to write about what is affecting my life so deeply right now! I am moved to awe. Last year was a rough year for me, a shadowy place, if you will, and yet, here I am, through no goodness of my own, … Continue reading Ready to Dig Deep
Yup, my title pretty much sums up my year. 2017 was a challenge in so many ways. I’m going to spend a few minutes just writing and remembering. I don’t want any of these lessons to be wasted (and have to be relearned in 2018!) Yup, I must be at the “difficult” age that society … Continue reading the challenge of 2017

It would take them about 45 minutes to eat one, and that was my shopping trip done. (and they were happy children the entire time!) This is a Canadian west … Continue reading Gingerbread Dough
My mother called me from her hospital room tonight. She sounds happy and peaceful, and I was thrilled to hear her voice. You see, I am 2,700 miles away from her, across this vast land, and cannot call her! The reason I can’t call her, is that the only time she turns her cellphone … Continue reading Mother
Looking at Psalm 1 this morning, I noticed something I had never seen before. Verse three says this, “He will be like a tree, firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season. And its leaf does not wither . . . ” (NASB) Clearly it’s talking about the person whose … Continue reading What! No Fruit?
I’ve been making this for years. My family loves it. It’s the perfect snack to munch on when you’re waiting for dinner or just want a little bit of protein anytime! Ingredients: 8 ounces Cream Cheese … Continue reading Party Cheese Ball
Please pray for Heather today, as she drives home to Georgia, from Wisconsin, with some college friends. This is a really big deal for me. God is so good and has blessed her time there, and kept us close across the miles! This pic was taken a long time ago, with a film-in camera, in … Continue reading Baby Girl coming home!
