Plugged In

  International travel always requires the adapters to be packed with the chargers necessary to keep everything up and running. Funny thing is there are so many different types, I have to check to be sure I have the exact one to work in each country. Even so, there are times I get into places that nothing seems to work.

Ripples In The Reflections

  Early one morning, I drove out Lake Road which runs alongside the Tchefuncte River. It was an unusually calm morning on the river. Seldom do I catch it “glassy”. I pulled over near the edge, looking for the perfect picture to go with a “reflections” post that has been on my mind. Sudden movement caught my eye and I

Learning How To Handle Loss – Day 19

The friendships God has brought into my life continue to humble and amaze me. Today, Elizabeth Vinturella is guest posting and I am certain you will be blessed to let her words on grief and anxiety pour over you and into your hearts. May God’s blessings abound!   “But, how will I do Thanksgiving Day without her”? I yelled to my

Lift Our Eyes – Day 17

Psalm 121:1-2 1  I lift up my eyes to the hills.  From where does my help come?  2  My help comes from the Lord,  who made heaven and earth.  I don’t have to look back very far to remember a time when I asked where does my help come from. In fact, as life continues to pour over me like

Five months to the day later, just as everyone who flooded is completing their renovations and getting moved back in – the unthinkable happened – a system developed over the Gulf and stalled. Early predictions are saying the worst hit parts just to the

Happy New Year – WELCOME 2014!

Having great intentions, I began writing a post observing my favorite moments of 2013 using pictures of my journey this past year. It didn’t take long for me to realize tears were sliding silently down my cheeks. Falling, pulled by gravity, to my chin where I wiped them on my sleeve – some escaping and falling to my leg creating

Six Times

I’ve been busy this week – trying to recover from our trip to India. It has been a trying time waiting for my body to flip from the 10.5 hours time change. Gratefully, God created our bodies so uniquely that we are able to do that with a little patience. I have written two stories about my mom’s journey since

Like A Butterfly

And there it was… the gentle reminder of the creator I serve and worship. Grace and patience paced her journey. The butterfly floated by on the soft breeze moving across the water. The boat continued down the river in the opposite direction. In a few minutes, I lost sight of her. Briefly, in that moment, I marveled at the mystery
