Who knew that five words could make such an impact on someone? I recently took my 1-year-old grandson to the grocery store. I only needed two items, therefore, we were going to zip in and zip out. He loves to ride in the cart, so going to the store isn’t something I dread – it’s […]
When the remote doesn’t work

So my 1 year old grandson has this thing about the TV remote. I mean, that’s his favorite thing to play with when he comes over. I used to let him play with it until he changed some settings and we couldn’t get it changed back for a day or so. Yes, we are probably […]
Once upon a time there lived a young woman. Some would say she was beautiful, while others would say that only she thought she was the prettiest of them all. Maybe it was the way she applied her makeup, styled her hair, or tried her best to keep up with the latest styles. Or, perhaps […]

Lord, How do you forgive someone who intentionally hurts you? How did you? The longer I live, the more I understand how amazing you are. People are so incredibly selfish. How do you still love them? Please, Lord, give me insight and the strength to love those who simply don’t care who they hurt.
Let love win

A couple weeks ago, friends from our church gave us a lovely house warming gift from their home – cone flowers. I watched as she carefully dug them up after a good rain. I couldn’t wait to plant them in our flower garden. They were special of course since they came from a friend, and […]
Love you, dad
My dad. Unfortunately, I only have a couple pictures of us, but the memories I have in my mind are more than I can count. I loved him so much. He was a very quiet man, but his actions revealed so many things about him. He was faithful to his family. He was a hard […]

One of the BEST moments for me after I meet someone’s child (who is around toddler age ) is when he or she finally feels comfortable enough to make eye contact with me and then next — cracks open a smile. However, the most exhilarating moment is when that little one r e a c […]
