(Wednesday morning – continued) Even though the sun is now shining brightly, this morning as I was driving Tilly (and she was driving me crazy), the black clouds were rolling in. Soon the drops came, just enough to make me want to quit. Frustrated to the max, I thought of all those people who owned … More Way to go, Tilly!
So, today I decide to till the garden instead of exercising. Running Tilly is definitely exercise! She must not have slept well, because she is sputtering all over the place! She’s lost her spunk! I baby her along, hoping that she’ll kick into high gear – no chance! I think she’s upset because I was … More Tily Tries My Patience
Dear Tilly is my rototiller. She’s not actually mine – I’m just ‘borrowing’ her from my mom! I remember Dad faithfully using Tilly every year for Mom. (He didn’t know her name though! 🙂 ) I guess it’s the farm girl in me, but I love to put on my dungarees (I just love that … More Ode to Tilly

It may be a drop of swamp water – that’s always amazing to see all the critters swimming about completely unaware … More A Tribute to Bob Jones University
This morning I received the very sad news of a college friend’s death. She had been battling cancer, and left behind her husband and two teen sons. How tragic! She had accomplished so much in her lifetime; I always felt intimidated by her success. Now, she’s gone – I can’t seem to comprehend it. How … More Life and Death
Where is your focus? We’d all like to say that we are focused on Jesus Christ, but if we are honest and check our focus barometer, we will see that there are MANY other items that take our focus away from the Master. Does the object of our focus matter? Many of you may … More F O C U S !
Last fall my husband and I had a wonderful get-away-time at Cape May, NJ. It was in October, so the beach was very quiet. Our hotel sat right on the beach which gave us a side view of the ocean. (Front view rooms were way too expensive. I really think the hotel should have been … More Eight Dollar Tea-pot
There he stands, facing the enemy. His uniform is in tatters, his weapon is hot from use. They’ve all left him – alone to face the enemy. Maybe the battle was too fierce for them, or maybe they just got tired – whatever the cost, they are gone, and he stands alone. This blog is … More Lone Soldier
