Better Late than Never.

Ever wonder if what you have to say makes a difference? If a child’s words can rock someone’s world, then why question the weight of yours? Believe me, it doesn’t take a degree to make someone qualified to speak the truth and change the course of your day. Many years ago, when our three sons […]
Pick your battles.

Next summer, my husband and I will celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Where does the time go? I think back over the years, and I remember so vividly some of the things he would do or say that would ignite my little temper or send me into the ‘cold shoulder’ mode. Some of those memories […]
What’s the Message?

Don’t you just hate it when you have just enough information about something, that it makes your thoughts AND emotions go wild and crazy?! Just happened to check to see if we had any voicemail messages on our phone the other night, and was SHOCKED to see that we did. Like – NO ONE calls […]
WHAT Was I thinking????

We all have ‘that place’ that helps us clear our thoughts. My place is definitely anywhere – out in the country. I recently took a walk on a country road with my husband, and we talked about – everything. He asked me what I thought about last week’s sermon at church, and I asked him […]

Started to pour some cereal into a bowl, and realized that I had opened the box up on the wrong end. Too late. There it was right in front of me…. Life – upside down. Made me think of a story a minister shared last Sunday. His sermon was about marriage. He talked about a […]

Have you ever looked back at a decision or choice that you made, and you think….”WHAT ON EARTH WAS I THINKING?!” Me neither! Haha. JUST Kidding. Of ALL the quotes that I have ever shared or seen, this one really made me stop and think. “Do not follow your heart. Follow the conviction of the Holy […]
No Question About It – YOU ARE WHERE YOU ARE FOR A REASON

My husband and I decided to grab dinner out recently – on a Friday night, and it was one of those times when neither one of us could decide what sounded good to eat. Because it was getting to the point of total frustration, I even suggested that we stay home and just have a […]
Bright Spot of My Day.

Found this photo that I took in January. Will never forget that walk. It wasn’t your typical cold, snow-covered January day in Indiana. It was a clear blue sunny day. No snow. No winter coats. Memorable… The same day that I walked that country road and spotted this beautiful bird, I later witnessed a dear […]
Music to My Ears

Heard this song, “Here and Now”, for the first time the other day. Boy, did it ever stir up a mixture of emotions. Music is good that way. I love it. The words made me think about those moments that took my breath away – in a good way. Moments when I KNEW that God was there, […]

Have had this on my mind for about a year. This is NOT meant to be a negative aimed at all men. I KNOW that there are several out there who have their act together – unless they have me totally fooled – which is possible. Haha. This last year, I have read through numerous […]
