The Joys of Being a Child Again

This time of the year — more than ever — we’re reminded of the joys of being a child. Blissfully running about, filled with happy freedom from care and concern.  I love it when I hear them scream “DADDY!” as they’re about to be caught by a sibling or cousin.  They know who to turn…

Savor Life and the Blessings

It’s quiet in my home tonight.  The “gang” have all left for their homes in Texas and Seattle.  I’m savoring the sweet times we were able to cram into such a short span of time. I’m archiving so many things that I’ll remember for a lifetime. My not-so-big home handled all eleven of us.  My…

I Am Thankful

Often, It’s a product of our upbringing and circumstances that we are complainers or if we are optimistic and have a grateful attitude. But no matter what, it’s possible to BECOME grateful — even if it’s not our natural “bent”, but it does take discipline. It’s like learning to dance or play an instrument or…

Oh Give Thanks to the Lord

Thanksgiving Day and Week often turns our heads and hearts to super sales, football, lots of yummy food, family get-togethers, games we’ll play, stories we’ll tell. And quite often, we base our gratitude on those tangible things we have in our life, like the car we drive, the home we live in, the job we…

Living in the Joys of Today

Upon leaving the inspiring and encouraging time with friends and family at the Homegoing Celebration for my Honey on Friday, November 19th, 2010, I knew it was time to turn the page for a new chapter in my life. With our children and grandchildren at my side, we would go home and continue the celebration…

Get Your HOPE Up!

Did anyone ever say to you, “Don’t get your hope up!” Bless their hearts – they just don’t get it. They don’t know what we know. They don’t know that we have the Most High God on our side, and He is connecting us to the right people, giving us a brilliant idea, showing us…

Christmas BEFORE Thanksgiving?

It’s been beginning to look a lot like Christmas for MONTHS now. And, I saw some FB posts where folks were grumbling about Christmas decorations being sold and Christmas music playing since back in August. I get that retail stores, needing their sales, amp it up to get us into the “buying” spirit waaay before…
