the good

Today is what I call Discovery Day, June 2, 2018. It’s the day I learned my baby’s name. Our Reunion Day is on the 5th-the day of our first communication. I was going to “celebrate “ by visiting her but instead I went last week. I didn’t want to wait another week. It’s just aContinue reading “the good”

daughter friend

In two weeks we will be celebrating her birthday for the third time….not counting the day she was born. We have been in reunion for only two and a half years. After my other children were born, I would always wonder and hope that someday when they were adults that we would be good friends.Continue reading “daughter friend”

upcoming visit

I’m so excited for another visit with my daughter! We have actually seen all the kids at one time or another this past couple of months. We even went to Arizona for a week to visit our middle. 5 out of 7 have moved just in the past year, including the youngest who shares anContinue reading “upcoming visit”

two years

Two years. It’s not an extremely long time to get to know another person really, especially when you live three hours apart. Although, when I think about it, I guess it’s plenty of time to get to know someone’s heart even if you don’t know all the details of their life. I truly feel likeContinue reading “two years”

rejoice

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 Rejoice always. Sometimes this seems impossible. It seems impossible during a pandemic. It seems countercultural with the civil unrest today. Even when I am trying to learn about these things it canContinue reading “rejoice”

reading psalms

Nothing speaks to my emotions and strengthens my faith like reading Psalms. It’s like reading and praying at the same time. A good thirty plus years ago in the church we basically grew up in as a couple, our pastor had led the church in a time of reading every 30th Psalm and a ProverbContinue reading “reading psalms”

instagram

I have had an Instagram account for about 8 years. What started out as a maybe a simplified version of my Facebook has become an outlet for my creative side. Photography has become a much more serious hobby and I enjoy sharing photographs of the things I love and that I’m passionate about. And surprisingly,Continue reading “instagram”

the past is part of our story

This truck has a past. It has a story. There’s a certain charm that attracts us. We can see how trials and circumstances in this world have made it what it is today. Someone decided not to discard it, but appreciated it and displays it proudly. Our story would be incomplete without our past, evenContinue reading “the past is part of our story”

the race, part 1

While doing my three miles today, I couldn’t help but think of all the parallels this physical “race” has to the Christian life. As I am “running”(jogging/walking) through the mountains and valleys (inclines, gravel driveway, old body) I see and feel the obstacles in my path (loose rocks, Elsa-my way too active Labrador retriever, asthma,Continue reading “the race, part 1”
