An Earthly Field Trip

Back during my school teaching days, the entire fifth grade would go on a field trip at the end of the year. This allowed our students to see the facts and concepts we had studied all year come to life. However, the most important lessons learned on these trips were those about being polite, listening […]

Bare Necessities

Friday night I watched a movie with my grandsons that I hadn’t seen in years – The Jungle Book. Do you remember it? It’s the tale of a little boy named Mowglie who grows up with the jungle animals and then has to be escorted to the safety of the man-village. Watching this movie can […]

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Then God said, “Let there be a space between […]

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

Lying on the beach trying to recover from jet lag, a song from my 70’s playlist asked a question that made me laugh out loud. Chicago wanted to know, “Does anybody really know what time it is?” I wanted to know that too. Our flight out of Atlanta left Saturday afternoon at 2:40. After losing […]

Take the Keys

Does the folk lore of your family contain stories that beg to be told over and over? Our family has so many stories we should start numbering them – especially those that center around my son. We lovingly refer to these stories as “Jarrod Tales”. Mischief runs rampant through Jackson blood and when mixed with […]

Change Is Gonna Do You Good

Yesterday, our yellow lab, Lilly, and I took our morning walk at the farm. This property has been a work in progress for several years. My husband has an uncanny ability to picture in his mind’s eye just how land should be developed and then ensure his snapshots come to life. He has the farm’s […]

I Know It’s Friday, But…

Since it’s Friday, I thought some words of comfort might be just the thing to end a long week. Sit back, get comfy and pretend you are reading a letter written just for you by Jesus. Why not get that afternoon cup of coffee you like so much and then prepare for a glorious weekend. […]

You Have GOT To Be Kidding

When my doctor prescribed a diet of berries, nuts, seeds, fruits, non-starchy vegetables, brown rice and fish three times a week I was concerned. But, when the next sentence out of his mouth was, “Oh, you also need to fast one day a week”, I thought, you have GOT to be kidding! His goal was […]

Southern Born and Southern Bred

When I speak, my words drip with Southerness. My accent would stop Paula Deen in her tracks. I am an expert at making one syllable words into three or four syllables. I enjoy teaching every Southern expression I know to my son-in-law who has strong Illinois-Indiana roots. One of my favorite words does not have […]
