I Assure You, I’m “OK”

I Assure You, I’m “OK”

Am I?  Really?  What does that even mean, anyway?  OK.  I wonder about these things sometimes… What does “OK” even mean?  Why do we use the letters “O” and “K”?  Here’s what Webster says: OK  adverb or adjective \ō-ˈkā, in assenting or agreeing also ˈō-ˌkā\ : fairly good : not very good or very bad : acceptable or … Continue reading

When Somebody “Busts Your Bubble”…

When Somebody “Busts Your Bubble”…

What do you do? Do you… Quit? Throw a fit? Lash out? Stomp and pout? It happens.  Sometimes intentional and other times not so much.  Maybe not at all intentional, but still just as painful. This one wasn’t so much painful for me, just sobering.  AND, this one was completely unintentional, I’m sure of it.

Lavender and Lemonade

Lavender and Lemonade

I guess I’ve been an “old soul” since childhood, because I love and appreciate things from the past: books, quilts, doilies, embroidered hankies… I am always mixing the old with the new.  I love finding new ideas, but there might just be a doily under it, or an old book beside it. :0) Isn’t that … Continue reading

If My People…

If My People…

I can’t even speak to this verse. It speaks for itself. Oh, that we would hear God’s heart as He cries out to us. May we cry out to Him.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

For this weekly photo challenge the objective was to create a three-picture story: What do you do with soft apples?  While the obvious answer might be “make applesauce”, feeding them to the horses is so much more fun! We love it when something so simple turns into a big adventure.  We live in the suburbs, … Continue reading

Life Out of Focus

Life Out of Focus

I’m a photographer wannabe. I’ve never owned a really good camera, so playing around with my iPhone, Adobe Photoshop, Picasa, and iPhone Apps like Instagram and A Beautiful Mess keep me satisfied… for the time being. I’ve considered buying a more complicated camera, but every time I do, I talk myself out of spending the … Continue reading

Seafood and Truth

Seafood and Truth

Wow. It was another one of those moments. The light of truth. Some would call it a lightbulb moment. I call it a God moment. Never a coincidence. Always a crossroad.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Hearts that are Puzzled

Weekly Writing Challenge: Hearts that are Puzzled

Ever wonder why it sometimes seems that romance is only a fairy-tale?  Maybe it’s because we forget that in those Cinderella stories, the characters have to overcome obstacles before they arrive at their “happily ever after”. Real life.  Real stories.  Two imperfect people brought together from two different worlds, and we somehow think that “life … Continue reading

God Alone

God Alone

I don’t apologize, nor do I pretend that everyone believes it. From the beginning of time to the present, history proves it. Man has been searching for Truth about God, and He gives it. Truth was recorded by the Ancient of Days, though many ignore it. Creation proclaims His presence, but instead, many worship it. … Continue reading

A Heart That Sings

A Heart That Sings

Even though I’m not a good singer, I still LOVE to sing, and will do so at the top of my lungs ONLY if I’m sure that I’m the only one left in the house or driving alone in my car. :0) Music sure speaks to the heart, and whether it’s a sappy song that … Continue reading

Time to Get Busy!

Time to Get Busy!

I realize that not all of my readers are following the Scripture Challenge that I started last year, but it’s a new year and time to get busy memorizing! Even if you didn’t commit to memorizing a passage from every book of the Bible, why not pick a few of these verses and challenge yourself … Continue reading

Were it Simply A Matter of Resolve

Were it Simply A Matter of Resolve

I admit it.  I’m done with resolutions and “trying to do better”. How many times have we tried to start a new year off full of good intentions and resolutions, only to find ourselves falling short and disappointing no one but ourselves. Keep reading and you’ll find some encouragement, I promise! I am by no … Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

How could I resist this week’s photo challenge from WordPress, when it melts my heart every time I see my grandchildren watching out the window, anxiously awaiting the arrival of their Nana and Pappy. In this particular photo, our sweet little (almost 2-year-old) granddaughter was watching her Pappy mow the back yard and with every … Continue reading
