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 […]

Yesterday a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. My heart sank and then I remembered that even in the pain, cancer cannot steal joy. As we approach Easter, I’m reminded that cancer cannot destroy the hope we have in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I also remembered this “Survivor’s Speech” that […]

In the decade-plus years since 9.11, I had never heard this story. After the terrorists attack of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011, Manhattan shut down – all subways, tunnels, bridges, and trains were closed.  People ran to the water’s edge.  Realizing there was no way off the island, some even jumped in […]

Mourning Doves and Perseverance

This mourning dove became the object of our admiration and affection. The landscapers had leaned the ladder against one of the posts on our carport. Within an hour, there was a nest and that was that. In “googling” Mourning Doves, I learned they are not very good nest builders. That’s the truth – it was […]

Wise Men Still Seek Him

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 things go wrong…

PROBLEM #1  Really weird, crooked globe on pendant In my dream kitchen (picture from a magazine), I loved the schoolhouse pendants over the island. Small and quaint. So when I found them, I thought “great – just what we need!” We made a lot of internet purchases for the house and this is the only […]
