Christmas Memories of my Mom

When I think back to Christmas  as a little girl, the first thing I remember is the lights, how they seemed to be magical. It was as if a different world had come to life for the season and everything glittered and sparkled. I remember the lights more than I remember any presents or anything … Read more


I put up some boxes and filled them with dirt. Buried a few seeds, and added water. Who knew? [flagallery gid=20 name=”Gallery”]


A few weeks ago I lost my beautiful little canary, Toby. I can’t think about him without crying, so deeply did he touch my life. He picked up a mite that attacked his lungs. In the video, he was behaving like he felt better. I had given him medicine that we hoped would help him. … Read more

Kentucky Outing

[flagallery gid=18 name=”Gallery”]
Here are a few pictures from our great day on Jerry’s farm in Kentucky. 🙂

I had a wonderful weekend. Saturday was a lot of activity that really wore me out, but I’m still glad I went. We drove to Kentucky for a hillbilly picnic. We have some very highly skilled guitar and banjo players and songwriters in our small church.

Some Interesting Dates

I was recently handed a book called “I Have A Friend Who Is Jewish, Do You? I wasn’t sure how a book geared toward convincing Jewish people that Jesus was Messiah would be applicable to me, but I ended up finding some ‘fact gems’ in it that really impacted me. I believe these points stand well on their own. Our world is so full of chaos and uncertainty. We’re all looking for signs of what is to come.  Is this the end of our country?  Is this the end of history period?  Is America going to fall? Will our economy turn around before we’re out on the streets in bread lines? Of course I don’t have the answers to those questions, (sorry), however, here are some interesting dates and points to consider, which, I believe, clearly illustrate who is in charge, and just how absolutely and factually in charge He is. Enjoy – and may He fill you with the faith you need to weather the storm!

Christmas in a New Land


I haven’t written in such a long time. Since the holidays are upon us, I thought I should at least put something in here.

It’s December, and here we are in Hendersonville, Tennessee. It’s cold. I keep wondering where the snow is.   It seems to me that I’ve been in weather this cold before but I could swear that there was snow involved.

The Road To Nashville

I thought that I may as well write about this, in the event that anyone still reads this thing. 🙂 I wish I could provide you with some video footage or pictures, but in the million details of packing up an entire house, while packing for a trip, I ended up grabbing a few, but … Read more


The sun is shining, like it does most every day in Vista.  Blue, cloudless skies, the weather is a balmy 70 degrees.  This is the kind of day that people in other states celebrate over.  Here, it’s just a normal day.  It’s difficult to grasp what’s ahead of us.  To uproot, leave everything we have … Read more
