No Need for a Fleece

I recently read these lines in a devotion:  “Some people look for problems.  They find a problem with every solution instead of the other way around.”  I know so many people just like that.  Whatever situation, problem or struggle they might be facing or...

“Make Thee An Ark….”

Several months ago, we “cut the cord.” Or, we canceled our cable.  And we haven’t missed it one minute…well, except for HomeTown.  Have you watched HomeTown?  Absolutely one of our favorite shows and we had to manage a way to watch the current...

A Little Letters Look at January

Yes, the beginning of February is well underway but I still want to look back at last month.  To remember and appreciate all that God allowed to happen and the hidden blessings of this year’s first month.  If I am not purposeful to do so, all I will see (and...

Where Do You Live?

We were gathered around the table for another afternoon of UNO.  Certainly one of the highlights of my week.  Uno with my special, senior friends at the nearby assisted living complex.  Sally played cards that afternoon which was nice because it has been quite a while...

A Lover of Words

I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.  Mine was special – and involved a lot of change…or new things for our family.  New, in a good way.  (New people. New places.  New plans and new traditions.)  Actually, there has been quite a bit of change...

Today is the last Five Minute Friday for this year.  Not only has this link-up been a wonderful challenge throughout the year – challenging my thoughts and my writing – but the other posts have been encouraging, convicting and helpful as well.  For those...
