STARRY NIGHT SATURDAY

Today was beautiful and tonight even better. I enjoy sitting on my front porch as the sun starts to descend; inching down, shadows, and shades of evening changing into the night.  I think it is God’s way of easing us into the darkness. Then, suddenly, the thick inked sky comes to life with millions of shimmering stars. Although I have a […]

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY

Today was an absolutely beautiful day! The temperature was perfect for me. And this evening was even better; just right for porch sitting and enjoying a good book. I always seem to learn a lesson when I sit on my porch, and tonight was no different. First, the birds serenaded me with their beautiful songs. One Cardinal actually sounded like […]

WOW WEDNESDAY THUNDER THURSDAY

Wednesday Evening……. It was a beautiful Wednesday evening. The bright sun was slowly, starting its descent with its warming rays touching everything in its path. A soft breeze floated through the one tree in our yard, as my husband and I waited for my son.  It was a special night, a belated Mother’s Day present. My son was taking us […]

TOUCHED MY HEART TUESDAY

Today was a lovely day, even though it was a little warm.  My husband and I had lunch out on this Tuesday.  It is something special we enjoy doing; perhaps a little too much.  None the less, it was a great time. Today, there seemed to be more senior citizens and more children than usual. Our table was catty-cornered, which gave […]

MIND OVER MATTER MONDAY

I love to tell stories that touch people’s hearts. That is why I write. Hearing someone say, ” Your story was exactly what I needed to hear,” makes my heart soar. I have written over five hundred short stories, two children’s books, a short story collection, and am now working on a novel titled; Chipped and Mixed-Matched. It is based […]

SPIRITUAL SERMON SUNDAY

Today was a beautiful day, a little warm, but not as humid as yesterday. At church this morning, our Pastor gave a compelling Sunday Message that has stayed with me all day. It was a sermon about acceptance, showing compassion and love, to all who walk through our doors; no matter what. As our church is getting ready to take […]

SCORCHING STORMY SATURDAY

This morning, my husband and I went out for our weekly Saturday morning breakfast. As I opened the door leading outside, I was taken back by the heat and humidity. I know its summer and hotter temperatures are to be expected. However, as I am getting older, I will admit, the less I like it. After breakfast, I came home […]

FRIENDSHIP FRIDAY

“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom .”    Marcel Proust I started my day out by enjoying breakfast with a dear friend who was visiting from Ohio. We each had a version of French Toast that was to die for. We reminisced about the past […]

TIME FLIES THURSDAY

Today is the Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day.  It is the anniversary of the declaration of our independence from Great Britain in 1776.  It was a day when flags waved proudly from homes, marching bands played patriotic music, and red, white, and blue decorations adorned windows and doors.  It’s a day to remember those who gave their […]

WAVE OF LOVE WEDNESDAY

It was a beautiful day today, in spite of the humidity. As I am getting a tad older, each day I wake up is a good day. This afternoon, I had my yearly mammogram. I go faithfully for this important wellness check. As I drove to the facility, I thought about all those precious women who have heard or who […]
