Inside the Writer’s Mind with Binoculars

I had a little fun on my Facebook page, Books by Carol Ann, yesterday. I used my binoculars to watch a few hawks who’d perched atop electric poles across the pond from my office window. As I did so, my imagination began to kick into action, as happens with writers. I wondered what neighbors would…

Music for the Soul

I love music, especially Christian music. I love to sing in church, though the voice in my head does not come out like I hear there! LOL! So glad God only cares that I praise Him. Flat and off-key doesn’t matter. Since my Templeton Cat crossed the Rainbow Bridge, I have felt really alone. The…

The Joy of a Recycled Journal

Yesterday, I stumbled across a journal my second youngest daughter gave me in 2020. I am going to use it to continue my journaling. She gave it to me for Mother’s Day in May 2020. I used it for taking study notes while I was studying my Bible and only used about 1/4 of the…

The Filled Journal

I had always wanted to be someone who writes in a journal on a regular basis and so many times I started and then just lost interest. But in 2019 my youngest daughter purchased a spiral bound Christian journal for me for Christmas. I began writing in it on January 1, 2020 and made my…

Learning as I Age

A few weeks ago, I began following the 75 Soft Challenge. I even restarted once when I missed doing one thing on one day. I have now decided to give myself grace and to not stringently follow this challenge. Why? I’ve learned as I age, my body is not what it used to be, and…

Through the Eyes of Others

I sometimes receive comments on social media calling me a strong woman and one who Christ works through. These words surprise me because I don’t see myself in this way. I don’t feel strong…not ever. All my strength comes from God when I turn to Him in my need. I never thought how this might…

Accountability

I’ve always thought about accountability as being responsible to others for what I do. It came into play a lot when I was working in the corporate world. I think of accountability when I look at our government in action. And I think of it in my relationship with God. But I’ve never thought of…

I Tasted the Honey in the Rock

Have you ever had a scripture you’ve read over and over suddenly strike you with an intensity that overwhelms your entire body and emotions? Let me tell you what happened to me. I’ve been doing The Chosen Season One Bible Study on my own. I’m taking my time to read it because too many times…

How Can I Not?

Do you ever have a day where you feel especially blessed and happy? That was me yesterday. I went to my local Aldi store to purchase almond milk and a couple produce items. At this store, you need to have a quarter to get a basket (which is returned when you return the cart). As…
