Well, Christmas and New Years is over and my house is back to normal. It felt good to take my tree and decorations down. But one thought still remains with me. The blessing of a gift! Personally I love giving gifts more than receiving them (sounds cliché’ but it’s true). I love to see the … More Should I Open It?
As Christmas is fast approaching, I wanted to take a moment to say Merry Christmas! Not Happy Holidays….Merry Christmas. For me Christmas is a time to reflect on the gift God gave mankind in sending his son to earth. Don’t get me wrong, I love a Christmas tree and presents are always fun to open…but…that’s … More Merry Christmas!
I’m so excited to be expecting a new grandchild in February of 2016! I love all my grandies and adding one more is a great blessing to me. Another blessing to me is the ability to find out the gender of the baby months before it is actually born! I feel more connected to the … More Boy or Girl?

The other day a friend shared a painful experience in her life. A current thing. As I was listening to her, I found it hard to not try and “fix” what was wrong. Oh, it would have sounded really, really good. And really spiritual. I wanted to say something like…”Well, God has a plan for … More I’m sorry
In my life, many people have come and go. And each of them is different. They have different walks with the Lord. Some don’t even claim Jesus as Savior of their life. Some are family and some are just acquaintances. Some of them have peaceful lives and happy marriages, but many others have difficult lives, … More As You Go…
I so enjoy my grandchildren. This morning my three year old grandson came flying up to me so excited that he had dressed himself.

So, I have to admit, I still have to sing the “Alphabet” song to remember the order of the letters that make up the English language. Thankfully, my children keep providing me with grandchildren so I get LOTS of practice!! Wouldn’t it be boring if we ever “arrived” at a level of learning? Isn’t it … More A..B..C..D..E..F..G…..
