Attitude Adjustment…

We live in a rural area. Our home is set back from the road and so our driveway is a good length. My walks usually mean that I am walking laps in our driveway. It’s not a vigorous walk, but it does get me moving and that always helps. Today as I walked down theContinue reading “Attitude Adjustment…”

Ecclesiates 3

Everything Has Its Time  To everything there is a season,A time for every purpose under heaven: 2 A time to be born,And a time to die;A time to plant,And a time to pluck what is planted;3 A time to kill,And a time to heal;A time to break down,And a time to build up;4 A time to weep,And aContinue reading “Ecclesiates 3”

Fear Mongering…

This afternoon, hubby and I had a conversation about fear.   I had mentioned that everywhere I looked and everything I read had an element of fear.   There is no one area of life that is not covered in fear. Fear of health situations.   Fear of wearing masks for fear of catching disease, fear of notContinue reading “Fear Mongering…”

Wedding Cake Topper…

Growing up, my Mother’s bottom drawer of her dresser held a treasure trove of mementos for my sisters and I to explore.   Inside that drawer were photos, her wedding shoes (satin shoes), and her wedding cake topper.   She had these sugar bells that had once graced her wedding cake.   I loved those.  So, when IContinue reading “Wedding Cake Topper…”

A Light in the Clearing…

I love walking in the woods, well, those woods I know, at least.  My favorite poem is by Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”  and I find myself quoting it several times. When going for a walk in the woods, you leave the bright daylight and follow a path.  This path meandersContinue reading “A Light in the Clearing…”

The Comfort of a Worn Quilt…

Psalm 91:4 New Living Translation (NLT) He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.   This verse in Psalms reminds me of sitting under an old soft quilt.  You know those quilts made up of many squares from different pieces ofContinue reading “The Comfort of a Worn Quilt…”

My Brother…

1 Corinthians 10:24 New Living Translation (NLT) 24 Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others. I never had a brother.  I always wanted one.  Growing up with my sisters was wonderful and I cherish them, but, I saw my cousins who were, or had brothers and I envied them. Continue reading “My Brother…”

Navy Family…

Military families are a unique group of people.  Separated from biological families, they have to make and become part of a new family with each duty station.  Their children have very little access to their real cousins, aunts, uncles, and even grandparents.  So, in the absence of having blood relations around, family units are formedContinue reading “Navy Family…”

Looking Back…

In November, I had great plans for writing about our Thanksgiving visit with Little Man and his folks.  I took pictures and I may still use them and write about them, but, somehow, time flew by and nothing was written. I had a wonderful holiday season.  I was so busy making memories that I didContinue reading “Looking Back…”

Reflections in the Rain…

We have been visiting our hometown.  Today, I decided to go to a neighboring town to browse some shops.   Of course, the day I decide to go anywhere is the day that it is stormy. I drove through town and started down the four-lanes, the closest thing there is around the immediate area to aContinue reading “Reflections in the Rain…”
