As the COVID-19 virus continues to affect our world and our daily lives, I have been reminded of another time in my own life when my plans were canceled, and fear of the unknown loomed heavy. As I’ve reflected on that time, I’ve been comforted by the reminder of lessons learned. Because these lessons wereContinue reading “This Too Shall Pass, But What Will Remain? PART 1”

Is It Worth It?
Sometimes I can’t remember if I just put a new coffee pod into my coffee maker, or if the one I’m staring at in puzzlement is the used one from yesterday. Even though I would have had to put the coffee pod there mere moments before, I seem to forget if I actually did it,Continue reading “Is It Worth It?”
On Lines and Love
My recliner tipped slightly to the right as my daughter placed her elbows and weight on the armrest. She was on her knees beside the chair, and her face was inches from mine. I turned my head to study her preteen face. The braces, the glasses, the innocence. “Mom,” she said. “What do I doContinue reading “On Lines and Love”
Outside the Ministry Zone – When God Leads You Down a Desert Road
Have you ever learned something new only to then read your own journal or notes and realize it isn’t actually the first time you’ve learned that very thing? You’ve learned this before, you just forgot! Yeah, me too. It happened to me again this week. I was doing my “homework” for BSF (Bible Study Fellowship).Continue reading “Outside the Ministry Zone – When God Leads You Down a Desert Road”
Our Marriage Needs a Prefix.
Last night I told my husband that I miss him. He nodded in agreement as he sat beside me. We are together a lot, but our moments of non-distracted, non-exhausted, non-sick, non-stressed, non-necessary, non-rushed, non-interrupted communication are slim. We’d like to add those little nons into our relationship, but they’re elusive little prefixes. We striveContinue reading “Our Marriage Needs a Prefix.”

In Plenty And In Want.
It was a few tissues and an empty Starbucks cup that tipped me over the edge. They were strewn on the floor around the empty trash can instead of being out by the curb with the rest of the trash that my husband had collected. Didn’t he see he’d dropped it and he really hadn’tContinue reading “In Plenty And In Want.”
8 Things My Dad Taught Me
It happened again just recently. A new friend was asking about my family and when she learned that my dad was the pastor at a local church she said, “Oh! You’re Denny’s daughter?!” Yep. I’m Denny’s daughter. I’ve been known that way all of my life. It used to get on my nerves to beContinue reading “8 Things My Dad Taught Me”
100% Polyester Love
Ten years ago this week I was a glowing bride-to-be. We were caught up in the hustle and bustle of preparing for our December 7th wedding. It was a whirlwind three-month engagement and I was head over heels with it all. I enjoyed just about every second of the planning and preparing. Our wedding, completeContinue reading “100% Polyester Love”
In This Corner…
I am going to be very honest here. Not that I usually lie. But, I like to write about something after I’ve got it neatly figured out in my mind. I prefer to organize my thoughts and feelings in a nicely gift-wrapped package and then deliver them onto my blog’s doorstep for others to enjoy.Continue reading “In This Corner…”
