We went on a family vacation last month and I sat and watched as my family walked around a lake. I’d been there a few years before and had run around it, not satisfied by mere walking, my energy exploded out of my feet.  Now it was my victory to...

I am going to my niece’s wedding September 1st, and I have no idea what I’m going to wear. I don’t own anything that is pretty, wedding-ish, and FITS. “Fits” being the operative word. Plus it’s going to be roaring hot and I’ve been instructed to...

The fires of summer have destroyed La Veta Pass.   Eden beauty incinerated.  The fires this season spread and pop up like measles all over the western states. News came they have engulfed the home of friends.  Nothing left but smoldering ash.  ...

Stop for a moment. Stop reading even and listen. Just give it 30 seconds.

I did and heard the low sounds of the television. The World Cup was on and my husband was catching up on highlights. I heard the occasional call of a nearby bird and...

I love our zoo.  The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo at its elevation claims to be the highest in the States and it certainly is one the best.  Yes, I’m probably biased.  We were members when our children were young and now they are members themselves....

A friend of mine wrote yesterday of the various trials that she is currently under. Her list was long and weighty. They say that when it rains, it pours and this dear woman is in a deluge. I bet you’ve been in them yourself with no umbrella in...

I always warned my sons not to hold a young woman’s hand until they were very serious about her and their relationship.  It may seem a simple thing, I would tell them, but it’s an intimate act that conveys a sense of being a couple.  A...

On a recent trip where I was going to be away for nine days, I arrived safe and sound but my luggage did not. It was, however, one of the rare occasions that I'd actually kept the sticky part of my baggage claim, along with my ticket, so the...

When our sons were between the ages of 8 and 12, we had the opportunity to introduce them to snorkeling.  I had only been recently introduced to it myself and I had just loved it.  Loved it like Scrooge loved money before that auspicious...

It’s been quite the week. The crisis’ that have come this week have come as crises do – out of the blue.  The week began with me finding pools of blood on my carpet, which led me to my 10-year-old golden retriever.  He had somehow sliced his back...

I was supposed to be strong again, the massage therapist told me with a bit of accusation in her voice.  Yeah, I know, I thought.  My children had pulled together and given me a massage for my birthday.  It was luxurious and wonderful.  The...

Two years ago I had T-shirts made that I love.  “Strong Girl” and “Strong Woman.”  Maybe you got one.  I got four.  Passionate about us becoming strong in the Lord, I wrote this in September of ‘15:

I woke this morning to my dogs calling me from their crates. Correction: I woke to Maisie, our two-year-old Golden calling to me from her crate. The occasional cross between a yip and a whine told me that I had fallen back asleep and had slept too... READ MORE

I wasn’t picked in the final selection for the jury, and I was so relieved. 

 

When I filled out the form provided at the court asking if there were any types of cases I might find it difficult to be a fair and impartial juror on, I...

I was recently at a Q&A gathering where a dear woman asked for help.  She had one question, really, but as all questions do, it came in a context.  Her question was, “I try to read my Bible, but I just don’t get anything out of it.  What...

I have a hard time moving on to the next.  Not regarding spiritual, physical or emotional growth, but to what feels like loss.  I’m talking about…CHANGE.  I don't like change.

Our home had been overtaken by fairy lights.

Christmas twinkle lights, boughs of evergreens, ribbons of red and the fragrance of pine filled the living room.  It was the night of our annual Christmas Party and I was ready.  I’d been...

When I hop on Facebook, which I confess, I haven’t been doing as faithfully as I want to be, it always asks me my “Status” and 90% of the time, I want to write “I’m tired.”  But that isn’t very cheery or encouraging so I let that pass and dig...
