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,…

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 are brought together from two different worlds, and we somehow think that…

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…

Confessions of a Romantic

On a whim I started to title this post, “Whatever Happened to Romance”, and accidentally sent an empty post– with only the title (oops!), before I realized that it might be a bad idea, since my husband has been blogging with the same title, http://dougmunton.com/2013/07/24/whatever-happened-to-sunday-school/ and http://dougmunton.com/2013/07/18/whatever-happened-to-discipleship/. I decided it would be too funny! …and…

Reflect and Resolve

Every year seems to pass by with things “I intended to do” and didn’t get done. Pictures in Rubbermaids, rooms that need painting, shelves that need cleaning. I’m not REALLY a procrastinator, though I sometimes wonder if I don’t see myself very clearly. The mirror doesn’t lie, so why should I? I know what I AM… *A…

ThanksLiving

It’s a season of thanksgiving and many are posting on Facebook what they’re thankful for each day.  I haven’t had the time to sit down and do that every day, but I am pondering this… Does this conscious attempt to be thankful contribute to the general sense of joy we feel through the holidays?  I believe that a thankful heart is…

Just a word…

I’m heavy-hearted today…so many around me are going through a difficult time and I just want to send a word of encouragement to you. You are LOVED and prayed for today. GOD’S WORD is the HOPE we have in difficult days. My prayer for you is that you will HOLD ON to the hope that is in you!

Pick up a penny…

It was several years ago that I heard a statement that I can never seem to get out of my head and my heart (not that I want to!).  My husband preached a sermon on compassion and had given every family in the congregation a token reminder of this principle: “Every Person Matters” He had…
