Celebrate!

As I sit here listening to fireworks going off in my neighborhood, with the sky sparkling and the scent of smoke all around, patriotism is in full force. Yankee Doodle is even being sung on a 4th of July special on TV. We’ve enjoyed a day of hiking and eating with family. I’m thankful for […]

All of the If’s, And’s, and Then’s

Life’s Not Fair

There are two quotes that I attribute to my mother.   “No one will ever love you like your mother.”  “Life’s not fair.” We learn that life isn’t fair at an early age.  Other kids have cooler toys, name brand clothes, nicer cars, go on vacations, have better jobs, no health issues, family problems – oh […]

Brave Faith

~Trusting God with who He says YOU are~ I’ve had this whole Holy initiative (we’ll call it) hit me like a ton of bricks! Sort of out of nowhere and sort of NOT. You understand how some things you know to be true and then there are some things that you KNOW to be true! […]

I love new journals with fresh white pages. I love new calendars with empty squares to fill in.  I love mornings.  I love fresh starts.  I love January 1.  There is just something about “new”.  The new year brings new hopes, new goals, new challenges and new excitement. I don’t know what your 2016 was […]
