Anniversary Trip

Anniversary Trip

On December 18 my husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We went to Asheville, North Carolina and toured George and Edith Vanderbilt’s large estate. Then we traveled to Charleston, South Carolina. It was a glorious trip, weather was 70 plus, food delicious, and historical sites were both fascinating and beautiful. Thought I would share … Continue reading

Beauty Is Fleeting

Beauty Is Fleeting

Our culture seems to be obsessed with how someone looks. The more handsome, beautiful, youthful you appear the better. I’m not talking about being healthy, combing your hair, brushing your teeth, and presenting your best self. I’m talking more along the lines of self-worship…vanity. I was watching a show on television last evening where two … Continue reading

Married Times Two…On Christmas Eve

This post is in honor of my parent’s 48th wedding anniversary.  Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!  I’m thankful that the Lord has blessed me with both of you.    They meet in their 8th grade history class.  Mom wasn’t immediately smitten, but Dad quickly won her over.  When the teacher would call on her to answer a … Continue reading

Hope For Our Future

Hope For Our Future

 We begin life cocooned within the walls of our mother’s womb–placed within by Holy hands. Hands that lovingly mold and sculpt, forming every intricate detail of our being, equipping us in every way to live out the story He wrote for us before the world began. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s … Continue reading

Is Ordinary Really Radical?

Is Ordinary Really Radical?

Could it be what some would call ordinary, might actually be radical? According to Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary the definition of radical is departure from the usual and traditional, tending or disposed to make extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions. I remember a time when a person’s word was as binding as … Continue reading

What Does It Look Like To Practice The Radical?

What Does It Look Like To Practice The Radical?

What does it look like to practice the radical in ordinary, everyday life?  The dictionary defines radical as fundamental, extreme, and a person who favors rapid and sweeping changes in laws and methods of government. SLOW—the one word that God has been whispering to me–that was my practice of radical.  For the last few years … Continue reading

Slow

Slow

For the last year, God has been whispering the word “slow” to me. You may be wondering if it’s even possible to slow down when the whole world seems to be moving as fast as a locomotive?  Yes, I believe it is.  Not only do I believe it is possible, but I have been doing just … Continue reading
