Am I in Heaven?

There are so many growing trends in hospitals across the country.  Walking harpists, therapy dogs dressed in costume, or just simply a designated quiet time where lights are made dim and voices lowered for a few hours.  Studies show this to be quite conducive for healing the human body.  In one instance so much so […]

The Zeppole Tree

    When I placed my order for the “The Zeppole Tree” I must admit I didn’t know what to expect.  But let me tell you, my eyes widened when the waiter brought this unique ensemble of cinnamon donuts and fresh strawberries hanging from a tree topped with cotton candy!  Did I mention chocolate dipping […]

A Lesson In Humility

I recently gave birth to our second biological child.  At the beginning of the pregnancy, I was terribly sick.  For over three months, I could hardly leave our recliner.  Simply lying still and breathing resulted in “morning sickness.”  Our home was seriously suffering.  We have a two year old and a busy ministry.  It took […]

Not What I Expected

We were traveling one day and decided to stop for a sweet treat mid-way through the drive. As we sat in the drive-thru lane on a hot summer day the girls were thrilled to hear me order Frosty’s for everyone! What we got, however, was not what we expected. These frosty’s were so small that […]

My Favorite Necklace

After coming home from a leadership conference last fall I placed my bag full of goodies (yay for free goodies!) down on the floor in my bedroom and started catching up. You know…catching up on laundry and grocery shopping and work and all that had went on while I was away from my family. So […]

An Everlasting Love

Sometimes it’s just good to stop and soak in the truth of God’s everlasting love!  I have been reading “God Loves You” by Dr. David Jeremiah this week. This afternoon I could hear the word of the Lord echoing in my mind out of nowhere, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.”  This is […]

Spring Cleaning

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. It’s April, that ‘time’ has come.. I dread it every year, cleaning out closets, cabinets, drawers and cleaning windows. It’s during this time that I look around at scuffed walls, worn curtains, broken blinds and tattered carpets. The […]

A Few Eggs from the Hen House

I am shocked at the number of people constructing hen houses in the yard for the purpose of gathering their very own eggs each morning.  This sounds like something my Me-Ma would have told me about when she was growing up during the great depression. We have this small out building in our backyard that […]

Obsessed with a Broom

I have to confess – I have an obsession – with a broom.  Now, I’m not talking about your industrial, ultra-wide, manly-kind of push-broom.  I mean your ordinary, cheap-as-you-can-find-it-at-Walmart straw broom. I LOVE to sweep with a broom. It began a few years ago when my mother was battling cancer and my sister, Gina, and […]
