Sunrise, Sunset

From Ecclesiastes, wise words of King Solomon: What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.

Do you see what I see?

When I was a kid, I loved the movie Snow White. I was fascinated that a woman could look in a mirror and see herself as the fairest of them all…for a while. What do you see when you look in a mirror? If you’re like me, you see all the flaws, the wrinkles, the… Continue reading Do you see what I see?

Fiddle Away!

Last night Chris and I saw one of my most favorite musicals, Fiddler on the Roof. I could blog about many aspects of the play; tradition vs. doctrine, our children defying what they’ve been taught, community life, or even marriage. But the main idea of the play is, of course, the fiddler. You see him… Continue reading Fiddle Away!

In the Deep

When I was a kid, our family would go to Jacksonville Beach, Florida every summer. My Daddy had been in the Navy and had a friend who lived there. I have so many memories. My Daddy taught us not to be afraid of the waves but to get right out there in them and jump!… Continue reading In the Deep

From the Belly

Sometimes I get a lot of blonde jokes told to me either by email or to my face. And that’s okay, although I’m not sure why we blondes get the brunt of these jokes! It’s okay because I love to laugh! The kind of laugh that’s from the belly. The kind of deep down, wet… Continue reading From the Belly

I am still strong, but I can tell a difference in my older body. Things change as we… Continue reading Strength

Better than blessed!

I’m not sure if I’ve put this in my blog before, but it’s on my mind today, so I am going to do it anyway. I don’t like the saying, ‘Too blessed to be depressed.’ Rather, I like ‘better than blessed.’ This is why Jesus said for us to become like little children!


When I am writing this blog, often times it is just whatever God has put in my brain and on my heart. But sometimes it is directed to a person I know. Maybe they are struggling, and I want to plant an idea in their head. Or maybe it’s just something I think they need… Continue reading Please!


This time of year, the beginning of summer, brings a lot of storms. As the heat index rises, so does the chance of an unstable atmosphere. Last night was a night full of storms. We and many others were without electricity for hours. Trees are down everywhere from tornadoes or strong winds. I can’t help… Continue reading Mercy


The other night I told Chris I had made a decision. When I say this to him, he always gets a scared look on his face and says something like ‘Uh oh!’ I have decided I’m not going to get old. After spending these past couple of weeks with my mom, that is my decision.… Continue reading Decision
