Visiting the Past, Living in the Present

What an amazing April I’ve had! While visiting our oldest son and his family in England, we took a little side trip to continue here

The Cross

It drew me with an attraction I could barely resist, and yet I did. Like a thousand magnets all pointed in my direction, its drawing power inundated me, I could feel it to my core and yet, I stayed away. I couldn’t give in; and for a very long time, I didn’t.

It wasn’t electrons or atoms that exerted such power over me, it was love. Pure, perfect love and I was terrified of it, repulsed by it, and drawn toward it all at the same time. What continue here

When Seasons Change

Who doesn’t love October, it’s the official start to “Pumpkin Spice” season when we taste and see the beginning of fall – and now it’s over! Winter will soon be upon us. How can that be?

Nevertheless, he’s ready to defend his cause – whatever that cause might be!

When it comes to spiritual things, many of us wish we were as brave as this little guy is. But we aren’t. We are keep reading here

Celebrating New Life

We are so excited awaiting the arrival of grandbaby number five in just a few months! Is there anything better than becoming a grandparent? I don’t think so.

I will never forget the day we were told that our very first grandbaby was on the way. The immediate love that filled my heart overwhelmed me. A baby! Once again I would cuddle and kiss and love a precious little one; I could almost feel the weight of the baby in my arms even as I waited in anticipation.

My immediate next thought was, continue reading here
