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. […]

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 […]

Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Week 1

It’s February. It’s winter. It’s cold. Need a little something to rev your engine? How about a contest? Since this is Valentine’s month I thought it might be a good idea for us to think about our relationships and a crazy little thing called love. I’m currently reading John Ortberg’s book, Everybody’s Normal Till You […]

Hard Things to Grow On

Last Friday, a friend of mine and I had lunch with a woman we had met in a drug rehab facility. We have Bible studies there twice a month and are continuously amazed at the things they teach us about life and God’s goodness. Friday was no exception. As I sat and listened to our […]

There’s No Place Like Home

I’ve been stuck for three hours now! I usually sit down on Monday to write the blog I’ll be posting on Tuesday and the words just begin to flow. You know that verse that says, “Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks”? Well, my heart must be slowly dripping today. I guess […]

A Matter of Perspective

In art class I learned when two lines representing a road gradually converge on a canvas the picture is given perspective. This makes it seem as though you are actually looking down the road. Things in the foreground are drawn larger than those in the background. In art, perspective is critical. We often put ourselves […]

Just Breathe

  My husband and I hiked up a mountainside on New Year’s Eve with four twenty-somethings. Guess who was last? Yep. Me. As my heart pounded out of my chest and I panted for air, I was reminded of my college days. My roommate and I did just about everything together. We shared many of […]

Great Expectations

Joanna Weaver, author of Having A Mary Spirit, made a statement I can’t get off my mind. She said, “For we all need someone who believes we are more than we appear to be.” Do you have someone like that in your life? Most of us have a parent, spouse, child or friend who thinks […]
