It’s astounding when God sets before you a serendipitous day! Undeniably God ordained! Oh, it’s not the bigness of that expression of His love; it is, instead, the utter inability to explain it in human terms. More than coincidence, it is God showing up gently and sweetly, reminding you that He not only puts … Continue reading Fish Story
Oh Lord, let me surrender to Your promise, While clinging to the knowledge of Your love. Let me not become a doubting Thomas, Demanding daily manna from above. Instead, let me revel in both good and bad; Resisting judging how a thing is so. Resting in the wisdom of my Father, Dad; … Continue reading Amazing Grace!
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important.

The phrase “I have a diplomacy deficit!” was conceived in 2007 as my diplomatic description of my not so secret struggle with “foot and mouth” disease! “Open mouth, insert foot!” I am seldom guilty of saying too little, and much more prone to say too much. So I have a diplomacy deficit! How about you? … Continue reading Diplomacy Deficit

The first time I felt the magic of dance was when I partnered with a platonic friend for the last waltz of the evening. Raised with a “no dancing allowed” religious restriction marked this as a milestone! You filled aroma’s room, Like roses blush in bloom. I sidled to your side, With heart, that could … Continue reading Cinderella’s Ball
Today I noticed a Facebook post inquiry from a niece asking how long my parents had been married. I remembered and confirmed their marriage of 72 years when Mom passed in 2011, at the age of 91. Dad navigated a daunting year of loneliness and confusion, and then joined her in 2012 at the age … Continue reading “Death, Where is Your Sting?”
“Jumping to the wrong CONCLUSION” is not right, but the LEFT “Trumping to the wrong COLLUSION” is WRONG!
God never flatters Believers. Love is an action, not inaction. Display it don’t just say it. We’re looking for serenity; God is looking for surrender! What we need is PURE pressure; not PEER pressure! When you make anything or anyone everything, it or they become the only thing, and that is idolatry. MAN may contribute … Continue reading Random Quotes
Lord, help me see what I need before I need what I see! For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 1 John 2:16, New Living Translation (NLT)

I crafted this piece in the summer of 1999 after viewing the movie “Runaway Bride,” starring Julie Roberts. The premise of the film is that of a runaway bride failing to grasp, delineate, and delight in her own uniqueness. Enmeshment traps one in the prison of someone else’s opinion of them: their likes and dislikes, … Continue reading Likeminded
A woman, like a flower awakes with morning sun. Her smile will shine each hour until the work is done. But when she is offended, by chance or by design; Her world is then upended she offers no more wine. So here is my wise insight: Embrace these words of mine. Imbue your words with light and … Continue reading Fragrant Flower
Can I trust when I don’t see my way? Can I trust Him if just for today? Can I set all my “learning” aside; While believing, He surely will guide? It is good that my mind will craft plans; That will surely keep busy my hands. For it’s He Who my steps … Continue reading Can I trust Him?
