Holding Its Breath

As some of you may know, we moved to a new house and city on New Year’s Day. We have several options for our old house where we lived for almost 15 years and raised our girls. Right now that house is sitting empty. We’ve done some work on it to improve the looks and… Continue reading Holding Its Breath

Treasured Possession

There are many things in this life we consider treasures. Perhaps like me you have some jewelry from ancestors passed down to you that you treasure. When I look at those pieces, I remember why I treasure them. They make me smile and feel good. They remind me of someone who impacted my life by… Continue reading Treasured Possession

It’s Time to Ask

It seems TV is trying to helping us pass the time by showing movie series, and I guess for those who cannot even go outside, it is helping. The other day all the Indiana Jones movies were playing. We came across Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. If you’ve seen it, then you know it… Continue reading It’s Time to Ask

He Knows My Name

I admit it. I’m not very good with names. We placed membership at a new congregation a while ago, and I am still learning names! Thankfully, we have the church directory app on our phones and I can look up someone when I cannot remember their name. God doesn’t need an app with a directory.… Continue reading He Knows My Name

The Book

I love to read! I teach library and computer at a private school in Spring Hill, TN, and I often tell the students reading can take them places. During this quarantine, reading is vital. Since we are not supposed to go anywhere except essential places like the grocery store, reading can pass the time and… Continue reading The Book

I Know Him

I know Him in what I hear and see and smell. I know Him in the red birds I hear chirping their warnings of a human nearby. I know Him in the bugs I see crawling on the street. I know Him by the rain I see, hear and smell. I know Him in the… Continue reading I Know Him


“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People… Continue reading Relax


When I was young my mom would take us to The Commissary in Nashville to shop. I remember loving to go there where they had clothes racks we could hide in and run around. But I also have vivid memories of getting ‘lost.’ Funny how when you are a kid, you think you’re lost sometimes.… Continue reading Lost

Who Knows?

Have you ever had a friend experiencing a bad time and “I know” were the words you said to them? Or perhaps you’ve been the one going through tough times and “I know” was what someone said to you? Maybe your doctor has said that you need to have surgery. He tells you it is… Continue reading Who Knows?
