Something’s in it, but it ain’t your ring
Refreshing. Quenching. Renewing. Cleansing. Life sustaining. All things water. This picture is from years ago, I am not even sure what town we were in, I just remember this hotel being deserted and kind of creepy. My husband jumped into the pool after a mud race. I am reminded that we searched the bottom of … Continue reading Something’s in it, but it ain’t your ring
So...... I have been in the country for a few days - without internet service. ☹️ That’s just not fun and was not in my plans. I heard a familiar whisper the other morning... fill back up. God will find time for us to fill back up. Planned or not planned. We just go with … Continue reading Unplugged
What’s in your wallet?
I am sitting in Kentucky this morning, visiting with my sister, her husband and my aunt and mom. We sat around the dinner table last night telling stories of our youth. You know how that goes... your mom is always like, "I didn't know that"... we bust ourselves out years later because we have changed and … Continue reading What’s in your wallet?
As I sit here this morning wondering what is going to appear on this "paper" and thinking about the people that are reading this blog and wanting to reach more people, I hear a gentle whisper - don't let your desire become your focus. Wait, what? I desire to reach more people through this blog, … Continue reading DUCK!
Grab the what!? By the what!?
Interestingly enough, the origin of this phrase is unknown. I can guarantee you that whoever coined the phrase 'grab the bull by the horns' probably wasn't referring to this guy (a Watusi that came from Africa - who I have named "Moe"- nooooo, he isn't mine, so simmer). I imagine someone like John Wayne, instructing … Continue reading Grab the what!? By the what!?
David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the Lord with all his might -2 Samuel 6:14 So, who is the dancer in your family? My husband absolutely is. Hands down! The caterpillar wizard. Sprinkler. Pole digger. Fisherman. Yeah, he's that guy. Me.... well, perhaps I got my moves from my older brother - we … Continue reading Bringing it
What’s on your play list?
So, I am at my mom's this morning and she is out of town. Great timing, right? 🙂 Just kidding, mom. It is very quiet here and I only have one pup with me - Ollie - the perpetual toddler. Okay, so anyway, I was standing in the kitchen making coffee and thinking about writing … Continue reading What’s on your play list?
Marley. And me.
Getting a dog is the best day and losing a dog is the worst day. You can say that about a lot of things, I personally relate this to dogs. Marley in particular. He truly was the best dog ever. Our dogs know us, like really know us. The tears, the joy, the frustration, the … Continue reading Marley. And me.
Put me in Coach, I’m ready to play
Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. -1 Samuel 17:49 Can we just give David a round of applause? Seriously. This guy was ready for the game. He asked … Continue reading Put me in Coach, I’m ready to play
