The first time I visited Las Vegas, I was 21 years-old. My husband and I arranged to fly down from Seattle to meet his older sister. She had boasted to us about how cheap the food was (a complete filet mignon dinner for around $5.00), plus low-priced hotel rooms at fancy resorts! I wondered how … More Evil – Or Just Evil To Me?
JOY. A simple 3-letter word that’s easy to say, yet hard to hang onto sometimes, right? In spite of knowing that God has the COVID virus firmly in His grasp, I find at times I’m still letting that elusive 3-letter word slip from my focus. I had always loved being at home – and usually … More Consider … Joy
I love to hear birds chirping. In the early mornings I’ll often open my window so I can hear their sweet songs. It’s the most beautiful symphony ever! It delights me and gives me such joy. They sound so happy and carefree. Or I’ll find myself staring out the window watching the bigger birds fly … More Look At The Birds
Have you ever had one of those moments? A time when all of a sudden it seems like a lightbulb has switched on inside your head? You know. I’m talking about an “Aha” moment when something that had seemed impossible or utterly deflating a few minutes ago all of a sudden makes perfect sense. Now … More Eureka!
Ready … Set … Go! I’m sure that’s how this young man felt as he was finishing up high school. He was set to enter a top-notch college, and then onto one of the best law schools. After all, his father was a partner at a well known law firm in the city. He was … More It’s All About How You Finish
Let’s see… Didn’t I just write about the importance of rejoicing through praise and worship in my last post, even during difficult times? Yes I did. I even talked about doing a little jig to brighten your outlook (Rejoicing Because Of Jesus)! Yet just a few days later I found myself once again beginning to … More What Happened?
I have a friend who wouldn’t hesitate to do a beautiful dance for Jesus if you asked her to. She’s graceful, and does indeed know how to dance. I would dance too, but since I am not gifted with good balance or gracefulness, my dance would certainly not look like hers. Dancing side-by-side would probably … More Rejoicing Because Of Jesus
The Christmas and New Year holidays have come and gone – again! And for the third year in a row, we were not able to spend it with our son Jeffrey. The reasons are complicated, but because of this it was once again hard for me to get in the right holiday spirit. I miss … More Starting Point? Believe!
Have you ever skydived? I haven’t. I always thought it pretty silly to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. But still… I’ve read testimonies that it’s like you’re a bird floating on a cushion of air. I’ve seen people use the word “exhilarating.” Some say that when you’re freefalling after the jump you have … More Staying Confident Through Nosedives
I don’t like the season of winter. It gets dark around 5:00 pm. I feel like it’s time to go to bed. And it’s not just because I’m getting older! As far back as I can remember I’ve always disliked it. I need light – light makes me feel so much more alive. It gives … More Is It Berry Pickin’ Time Yet?
