Mary’s “Yes” — My “Yes”

As if one Advent by Candlelight wasn’t enough, I was thrilled to attend another last night at St. Bernard’s Church. This night, I was able to sit back with dear friends from my Hyde Park community and my ACTS community to focus my attention, and really take in the beauty of this wonderful Season of…

Making Room for Him

These photo inspirations are from the beautiful Advent by Candlelight at St. Benedict’s Church in Broken Arrow where I was so honored to speak at last night. Slowing down from our busy schedules and activities, to purposefully STOP the hustle and bustle to “nest” in God’s presence most certainly gives us the perspective of what…

It’s That Looney Cardinal Again

My son and family live in Austin on a large acreage which includes a lovely guest house that they offer to visiting missionaries, ministers and other visitors. I’m always at the main house when I’m there visiting, but I wanted a day of solitude a couple of weeks ago to meditate and finalize my thoughts…

El Lugar Secreto

Have you been to el lugar secreto? This weekend, six years ago, just after my Sweetheart graduated to heaven, I was invited to go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to spend Thanksgiving with my son and his family. What a special gift it was to go to such a peaceful and tranquil place. I woke…

On Your Mark — Get Set…….GO!

Shopping is in full force this morning — well, actually, it was in full force at 5 pm yesterday. Seems “Black Friday” is no longer reserved for just Friday. In fact, I purchased an item several days ago that was advertised as a “Black Friday” sale. Clearly, the Thanksgiving holiday is done for another year.…

Blessed to be a Blessing

Happy Thanksgiving! Let me start out by saying “I’m so thankful for YOU!” I’m so thankful you’re my friend, family member or casual acquaintance, but the fact that you stop by my FB post sometimes, humbles me, yet encourages me to keep on doing what I know God called me to do. THANK YOU for…

Too Much Christmas Before Thanksgiving?

It’s been “beginning to look a lot like Christmas” for MONTHS now. And, this year I’m noticing more and more families are skipping right through Fall and Thanksgiving and are fast forwarding the Christmas spirit of lights and decorations everywhere. In fact, last week while in Austin, I helped with Christmas decorating, and when I…
