  • Joy!

    December 31, 2020 by

    My depression era parents taught me a “glass half full” philosophy of life. This past fall, the Lord began working on this attitude in me. He brought to mind an old hymn I haven’t heard often, “Joyful, Joyful, I Adore You”. When I began singing, I became so happy and joyful I memorized the words.… Read more

    Surprise! I have made an adult coloring page from the most “liked” verse of those I post every day, Daniel 9:18. I love to doodle, and this is the result. While it is freehand and it shows, I learned a lot, and the next one will be better.  Coloring is a calming, focusing activity and… Read more

  • A Poem I Wrote

    April 19, 2020 by

    The Creator’s Blood Spilled for me. Earth quaked. Light extinguished. Veil torn. Creation screamed: Convulsed with grief. Father, I accept Your gift. Anoint my weakenss With Your blood.

    I Love Daffodils! I love beautiful flowers, so spring is my favorite season. I will have to admit, though, that  daffodils are my favorite. They are the first to come up and bloom, and they are a bright light in my life after a long season stuck inside the house. When their first leaves come… Read more

    Can Lentil Soup Really Taste This Good? The first mention of lentil stew in the Bible is in Genesis 25:27-34, especially 34 in the story of Esau selling Jacob his birthright for a bowl of soup! They had to really know how to make soup! The Lord often provides me with surprise blessings when I’m… Read more

  • Living in the Moment

    February 27, 2020 by

    Small Choices The Bible teaches in many places that all decisions are important, but this was just a normal Sunday morning and that lesson was far from my mind. I’d had my quiet time and breakfast and it was time to get ready for church. I decided I needed to wear an outfit I hadn’t… Read more

  • Question

    January 27, 2020 by

    This blog will be different because I want your opinion. A friend of mine posted this question in her Facebook group a few weeks ago. I answered it quickly, but as other answers came in, I saw that while I still like mine, there are a whole lot of other intriguing ways to look at… Read more

  • Resolution

    December 31, 2019 by

    For most of my life, I shunned New Year’s resolutions. Then I learned to do acrostics. I look at them as goals for the year, not resolutions, because I’m too much like Paul in this respect and don’t do what I resolve to do and do what I don’t resolve to do. However, a “goal”… Read more
