Our Risky Trip

“I never even knew my dad cared about me,” he said, as we snuggled and kissed good night. My heart nearly burst with emotion. How can a boy grow to be a man without knowing his dad even cares?I had been fortunate. Divorce was a word I’d only heard. Not something I’d lived through.

Down the Drain

Why is it…my best thoughts come easily - as gushing waters - when I’m without a pen and paper to record them? That’s just not right. Not for a writer, at least. As the toasty warm water washed through my freshly shampooed (and astonishingly thin) hair this morning God gave me a pep talk. Brilliant thoughts. Needed inspiration. Great scriptural...

Day 22 Christmas Creche Countdown

Day 21 Christmas Creche Countdown

  I found it! I found it! Thanks to FB flashbacks! I couldn't wait to share my 'most-liked' pic of 2012 which I mentioned in an earlier post in this countdown series. My youngest granddaughter was curiously, tenderly, passionately, and intently gazing upon Baby Jesus. May she ALWAYS be so drawn to Him! It's Day 21 of my Creche...
