Intentional Little Things

Intentional Little Things

I can’t remember exactly when they started appearing. Each tiny, white rectangle wore a 4-digit tattoo and a silver staple. I’d find them on our bathroom floor. And, on the bedroom carpet. Occasionally, one would haphazardly make it to the top of the dresser. After picking up and throwing away a passel of them away, […]

S.T.R.E.S.S.ful Season?

S.T.R.E.S.S.ful Season?

How do you manage your stressful days? Mine eventually find their way into a tubful of water with praise music playing loud enough to overcome the blasting whirlpool jets. I usually stay there until my fingertips and toes look like they belong to Yoda. That seems to work pretty well with the ordinary stresses of […]

Happy Dependence Day!

Happy Dependence Day!

At first, I thought I could cinch my boot straps up a notch or two and wade through the emotion. But as soon as I walked through the church door and saw the “Happy Mother’s Day” sign, my boots fell apart. Just six weeks earlier I had gone to my mother’s house only to discover […]

To me, that seemed more than a tad overwhelming until I reminded myself to appreciate how far God had brought me rather than focusing on how much further I […]

It’s so good to be back on the Road again! I’m thrilled you’ve decided to come along! This new adventure will most definitely satisfy our need for precious windshield time. We have lots to talk about. Though I’d like to be sitting across the table so I could watch your eyes dance, I have a […]

Revived and Revved Up!

Wrapped in Love From You

Wrapped in Love From You

Dear Sweet Friend, It’s been awhile since we’ve traveled this particular road together. Thank you for joining me again. I’ve not written more than a sentence or two since the middle of February, but my mother’s recent passing cause me to blow the dust off my computer and force my creaking  author wheels to turn. […]
