Rise Above

A friend, Darrell, challenged me to write something that would go with his photo — pictured above. It was fun and difficult at the same time. I hope it encourages someone out there today. When we lived in Florida and we had the opportunity to fly to see family/friends in Texas, Minnesota, or Indiana, I […]

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 […]

When we mess up…

I’ve been reminiscing quite a bit lately. It’s amazing how God can use your life experiences to teach you a lesson for today. When I was in high school, more precisely — my senior year, several of my best girlfriends asked me to go with them to Florida on spring break. Of course I said […]

The Lord Directs My Path

Mother’s Day. My plans were to take it easy and be lazy. God had a different plan. At the end of the day, I had to laugh when I looked at my total steps for the day. I’m lucky to get 6,000 a day, so you can imagine my reaction when I saw this total! […]

Storms

A summer storm just darted through our area. It’s been a long while since I’ve heard the rolling thunder in the near distance. Clouds were somewhat dark, and the rain gently tapped the windows. I have to say, it was refreshing. There’s just something soothing about a summer storm. Although there’s absolutely nothing you can […]

Trust

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 […]

Kids and Dogs

Between preschool kids and my dog, I think I learn something new every day. When we were outside for recess with our preschool students the other day, I noticed a little boy needed his shoelaces tied. He was running around in circles with friends and I could just picture one of the other kids accidentally […]

God’s Perfect Timing

If you’ve recently experienced a loss of any kind – something that creates a panicky feeling and makes you realize you are not in control –this post is for you. Before I begin, I need to explain that I believe God sometimes uses the tiniest details and victories to capture our attention. Because of that, […]
