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 […]

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.

IF I HAD KNOWN THEN WHAT I KNOW NOW

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN

Today is February first. It’s a new day and a new month; however, I am thinking about the last day of January. A day filled with a spectrum of emotions. Early Thursday morning… Got up early, grabbed a cup of coffee, showered, got dressed, husband warmed the car, picked up the food for later, drove on part dry, part black ice […]
