STANDOUT SATURDAY

The story I am about to tell you has a lot to do with the attached picture. From time to time, as you are reading, glance at the picture as a reminder of my words. All through our lives, all of us have experienced: ups and downs, laughter and tears, loss and gains, sickness and health, fear and strength, happiness […]

FROM MY HEART FRIDAY

When my children were little, I  enjoyed every minute with them. I loved watching them grow, witnessing their, oh so different personalities, listening to their dreams and wishes, and experiencing their loving hearts.  They were kind children who grew into even more compassionate adults. They were taught at a young age to be responsible, and each was expected to work […]

We meet at Moravian Hall Square at one o’clock in the afternoon. It is a beautiful facility filled with warmth and […]

WINK WEDNESDAY

This morning, I had to go up to the attic to find just the right size Christmas tree. I needed the tree big enough to hold forty red hearts. As I looked around at the twenty artificial trees of different sizes, totes of Christmas decorations, many angels, silk holiday flowers, and oh yes, I cannot forget the mountains of wreaths […]

This year, I decided to make piles of my cold weather clothes on my bed sweaters on one pile, turtlenecks, sweatshirts, winter pajamas, holiday wear, slacks, socks, slipper socks, and scarves on other piles. As the mounds started growing, I found myself becoming very overwhelmed. […]

SANDY SHORE SATURDAY

Today started out rainy and gray just like many others in the past few weeks.  I thought to myself, here we go again. Then I walked into Fraunfelder’s Hall located in St. John’s United Church of Christ in Nazareth, and everything changed. The first thing I notice was a glow of busyness. A good busyness of getting everyone registered, collecting lunch bags, […]

FALLEN LEAVES FRIDAY

This evening as I took my walk, I noticed the beauty of the fallen leaves. Although I have witnessed many Autumns, the leaves took on a different meaning, as I walked gingerly over them.  As I continued my walk, I passed trees that were still pretty full, some that were half full and some that only had one or two […]
