Love is Giving AND Receiving

I hit the ground running – rather, driving to Tulsa on Friday for my Tulsa love fix – spending time with my dear mother-in-law, some of my friends from Hyde Park, my bestie – Sheila Michie, my godson and his family,and other precious friends from my home parish, Church OfThe Madalene, my Life Group sisters…

Love Means Saying “You’re Forgiven”!

“Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free, and realizing you were the prisoner.” Yesterday, my post was about apologizing, saying AND meaning those words, “I’m so sorry!” Today’s is the reciprocating action…..being quick to forgive. How is that possible when we may have been hurt so deeply and their “I’m sorry” just isn’t…

Love Means Saying “I’m Sorry”!

Last week I shared about a Pastor sharing with a bride and groom at their wedding ceremony. He said, “People will tell you ‘Love means never having to say you’re sorry. That’s garbage!” He was hilarious, but he got the message across — to be like Christ means being quick to apologize and quick to…

The Work of Our Hands

It’s quite effortless to be inspired in my children’s homes — where there are grandchildren filled with life, wonder and excitement. In addition to those little live-wires, the precious symbols, photos and memorabilia all over their homes gives me many opportunities to capture and seize precious moments, and even remember special times from the past.…

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Typically, I’m not, because usually there’s a little light of some kind around that helps us see a path we’re on. I’ll admit, though, while at my kids’ home in Austin and I was staying at the guest house for a while….late at night when I walked between the two houses, I did get an…

Give Credit Where Credit is Due

I’m big on recognizing blessings aka the favor of God. For example — that parking place close to the door of the store, the unexpected check in the mail, the traffic light turning green before you stop, the sale price on an item we needed. I think that the more I give credit to where…

My Childhood Home

Do you remember your childhood home? If you’re like me, you may remember a huge home with a ginormous tree out front, but when we go back to that childhood home, we realize it’s only about 1,000 square feet and that huge tree in the front yard is just a scrawny tree. We had a…

Happy Presidents Day! Thanks, Presidents!

I gave considerable thought to Presidents’ Day before posting today. In my research, I found this day began as a way of celebrating George Washington’s Birthday (our first U.S. president) and now it’s a federal holiday that honors all presidents of the U.S. In celebrating this day, do we really acknowledge, with gratitude, what our…

Increase the Love Dosage

This little gal is one of Bryson’s friends. Her shirt inspired me — “Do all things with love!” 1 Corinthians 16:14 “Do everything in love.” Valentine’s Day ended four days ago and I wonder how many are still enjoying the outpouring of love they received on that day. And, what about those who are thrilled…
