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
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
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!

I’ve learned that I can do whatever God calls me to do, if I just keep my eyes on Him. But then the time to rest must come. I have helped my husband … Continue reading “Go in the strength that you have.”

I look forward … Continue reading Excited!
As of the 3rd of September, I completed the rough draft of my book that I started working on in July. Although, saying that I started it in July is a bit of a reach. Really, it was started 55 years ago, when my mother gave birth to a little girl and named … Continue reading You CAN do this!
It feels like it sometimes. It’s politically incorrect, I know. But . . . . Here’s what’s in my head: I’m sending out ministry receipts Packing to leave Georgia for 2-1/2 weeks on Thursday Taking Heather to college in Wisconsin My mom broke her hip & spent her 89th b-day in hospital Paying January … Continue reading Am I going crazy?
Can’t believe another year is gone. I’m sitting at my computer – surrounded by the laughter of my children and their friends playing games in the living room. Such a sweet time. Such a great year in so many ways. Trina cleaned for me all year, and it sure helped my relationship with my … Continue reading So, this is it for 2015
