Happy New Year! It’s just around the corner and I hope you are taking some time to think about your devotions for 2020. Do you have a plan or are you going to shoot from the hip?! I realize that, if you are like me, shooting from the hip is a way of life in … More A Closer Look
A new year, a new resolution—it’s January 3rd, how are you doing? Perhaps January 1st is just another day for you, but for me, it’s a new beginning! I love new beginnings; however, the challenge to accomplish something—sticking to it to the end—can be overwhelming! Last year’s Master Club* Award’s ceremony brought this into clear … More Sail On!
Ah, the Hundred Acre Woods! It’s filled with those loving characters created by A.A. Milne. As I was reading a story from the Winnie-the-Pooh collection it came to mind that we all may be characterized by one of those personalities! So, who are you? I would like to think that I’m Piglet—sweet and lovable, but, if … More Who are you?
Well, for the first time ever, we have grown cantaloupes—just had one tonight for dessert, and it was delicious! I’ve tried before, but they never completely ripened before our sunshine and warm weather gave way to fall. I love living on top of a mountain, but it cuts our growing season by two weeks. So, … More Success!

They may not dance, but they sure are beautiful!! … More Dancing in the Sun

So, one day he gave me one! It now sits on the table by my living room window, dancing merrily and bringing … More His Grace – My Weakness
If you’re like me, putting deodorant on is just another step in the process of preparing for the day! You don’t really think about it – you just do it! Well, some mornings, my schedule is off and I get running before I’m really ready for the day! This usually happens on those rare but … More Don’t forget your deodorant!
This blog is just the opposite of most of my blogs: the spiritual will be applied to the physical! After having Nathan home for a visit, I’ve once again put on the pounds! He tells me not to do it, but I make all his favorite dishes! Is that one of the five love languages? … More Duh!
At this week’s teen meeting, we started with a challenge about devotions by asking the teens how many days this week they had read their Bibles. Sad to say, only one had read his Bible once; the rest hadn’t read at all. You know the saying: Seven days without the Bible, makes one weak! Two … More Thanks, Walmart!
