Karen’s Life Sketch

On this, the first day of 2017, it seems an appropriate time to share my life sketch.  Rather than looking forward to the new year, I am looking back over my life and analyzing it.  There have been physical changes ~ for sure.  And life is filled with emotional experiences bringing you happiness and sorrow […]

There is a particular word that can stop time.  It is the word that will be like a bee sting.  It is a word that makes all things new.  In the nano second after you hear this word, whatever was bothering you will suddenly seem extremely trivial and unimportant.  In a moment, in the twinkling […]

Indialantic, FL – who knew?

Indialantic, Florida…an “out-of-the-way” place where my sister lives.  It’s on the Atlantic side on a barrier island that is only about 3 miles wide.   The long drive to Florida makes it worth the few days on the beach where we can re-gather ourselves and enjoy God’s beautiful creation.  This is the walk-over from their house.  […]

When life is hard…very hard.

We are praying for our Chinese friends who are going through a terrible time right now with their two children.  Their 2-year-old son has a brain tumor that the doctor without a biopsy has indicated that it could be malignant.  Their second son was born two days ago and he is one month premature.  He […]
