Psalm 121 (New Living Translation) 1 I look up to the mountains—     does my help come from there? 2 My help comes from the Lord,     who made heaven and earth! 3 He will not let you stumble;     the one who watches over you will not slumber. 4 Indeed, he who watchesContinue reading “Ahhhhhhhhh……”

Touching my heart

Yesterday as dear hubby and I were going out our front door a plastic grocery bag flew inside.  Hubby inquired about what it was and I threw it on the table and said I would look at it later. We did our errand and when I came into the house I stopped to see what theContinue reading “Touching my heart”

The Journey

What a difference a week makes.  This time last week, I was reeling.  Going from shock and awe to the deep pits of panic and despair. This week, is not any different, really.  Nothing has changed, except, my attitude.  Deep breaths have happened.  Prayer has happened.  Talking with my dear hubby has happened.  But, weContinue reading “The Journey”


We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live it.                                                 Proverbs 16:9 (The Message) Did you ever feel like you were living in a maze?  One of those corn fields that are turned into mazes during the harvest?  I have actually never gone to one, but haveContinue reading “Mazes”

Stepping Out…

Several of the blogs I have read in the past few days have all dealt with a word we hesitate to say.  Even more, we hesitate to follow through on.  The word?  Change. Each of the creative writers I follow (and there are many creative and talented writers) have talked about change in situation, inContinue reading “Stepping Out…”

gag me now….

Did you ever have one of those days? You know those type where just saying you woke up on the wrong side of the bed doesn’t really describe it? That has been my day today. I shouldn’t have just gone back to bed this morning, I should have been locked up, bound, gagged and knockedContinue reading “gag me now….”


Last night was one of those sleepless nights. I went to bed shortly after midnight and I got back up a little after 2 a.m.. My dear hubby gave up after 3:30 a.m. and I was still up. At first I was half heartedly looking at Facebook and watching an old Sean Connery movie.  TheContinue reading “Safe”

Delicate Boldness in the middle of a hard spot

During our trip to Gettysburg a month ago, I tried to capture the beautiful landscape of my beloved Pennsylvania.   Upon entering the state I immediately felt a calmness come over me that only happens when I arrive there.  No other state in the wonderous union of ours has touched my soul like Pennsylvania. As youContinue reading “Delicate Boldness in the middle of a hard spot”

Under the quiet

A few days ago I posted a picture of the pond in my back yard.  The caption for the picture was from Psalm 23.  I would like to share a bit of background for the scripture, if you don’t mind. A few years ago when we were in the process of moving after being inContinue reading “Under the quiet”

Ramblings on Fathers…

Sunday is Father’s Day.  This year is a special one for our family, as we have a new father in our midst.  Granted, the baby is still a couple of weeks away in actually being here, but, nonetheless, we know he is a new Daddy. This makes my heart full.  I find it unique toContinue reading “Ramblings on Fathers…”
