I’m still laughing at myself from what happened yesterday afternoon! To set the picture, I keep a footstool in front of my rocker recliner. I like to rock in my favorite chair and in order to elevate my feet a little the footstool works great. If I pull up the built in footrest on the… Continue reading Trapped in a Recliner!?!
When looking out my window I see the beautiful colors of autumn beginning to glow. Leaves are turning yellow on the trees around the pond. On my drive to church I’ve seen the glorious shades of neon red, my favorite. In small group this week, we were discussing how lovely it is to see these… Continue reading Will Heaven Have Seasons?
A few days ago, I started seeing the carpet in the leg well of my desk was not flat. Immediately I opened the Amazon app to search for carpet mats for desks. When I saw the prices, I remembered I still have one I’d retired two years ago due to it not staying in place.… Continue reading The Old Rolled Up Mat
I’ve been thinking about the motto from the great depression years: “Use it up, wear it out, make do or do without.” Doesn’t seem to fit the way most of us are living today. I, too, have fallen into the trap of FOMO (fear of missing out). I see, I want, I buy whether or… Continue reading The Great Depression Motto
This past week seems to have gone on for a long time. Some weeks, days, and even months are like that. Overall though this year has seemed to have wings in flight!

Things they never experienced and probably never will. However, as I tried to capture on paper the ideas in my… Continue reading He Can Turn Seas Into Highways

This is a picture of a soldier going to serve his country during World War I. This picture brings back… Continue reading So Many Stories Have Died
Fall is definitely approaching. Each day the sun rises later, so I’ve been sleeping an hour later. The sun is setting much earlier, too. It is dark now by 7:30pm. For an introvert like me, this change doesn’t bother me very much. It’s like an excuse for not being out and about. Yesterday at my… Continue reading Why I Find Peace in Shorter Days
Had a conversation with one of my neighborhood friends yesterday afternoon. He came out to talk when he saw me coming from the mailbox. I hadn’t seen him for several weeks and he said the same. He said he isn’t home much. He is out and about during the day. He seemed concerned that I… Continue reading Those Uncomfortable Conversations
Looking back over the past week, there have been a lot of changes in my life. Changes can bring stress but as long as I am walking with Jesus, I have hope. My faith sustains me because I believe He can do all things. There is no reason for stress in my life if I… Continue reading Faith Held Firmly Together by Hope
