I've settled back into my normal routine since waving goodby to my daughter on Thursday. She made it home safely and I'm so grateful she spent over 9 hours on the road to visit me for a week. We didn't do anything outside the house except for grocery shopping and church. Our time was spent… Continue reading Conversation and Nature
Mother's Day was a wonderful day. Attended church with family and close friend followed by an afternoon with three of my daughters. We ate homemade tacos with all the trimmings including chips and homemade guacamole. And we all wore matching shirts provided by my second youngest daughter. The shirts have printed front: "The devil whispered… Continue reading Oh, the Fun and Blessings of Family!

Good morning! Look at the pretty clouds in the sky. Couldn't resist taking a picture through my window. There is a frost advisory, but I don't think it will affect my little area.

Yesterday was a day of celebration of the resurrection! People saying "Happy Easter!" "He is risen!" "He is risen indeed!" Church was filled with individuals joining their voices… Continue reading The Joy of Easter and New Beginnings
Happy Monday! Happy Easter week! This week I'm mostly focused on Jesus, thinking of the price He paid for my salvation. When I really focus on the pain and the humiliation, the terrible violence of the nails He endured, I'm moved to tears. It is hard to watch reenactments and not crumble into a small… Continue reading Diabetes Issues, Fun Shopping, Laughing, and Added Colors in My life!
How do you view the world? I fell into a slump last week when the weather shifted to cold and rainy. I felt totally out of touch with everything! I lost interest in coloring, in reading, in every escape I enjoy. I wanted to sleep to avoid what I lacked feeling. My emotions were topsy… Continue reading The Eyes of the Heart
There are times when I want to unplug my television and never turn it on again. Why? I don't like the time I spend for winding down and relaxing to be a bombardment of things that are just the opposite. I believe in Jesus and stand on the truth of the Bible.
