It’s hard to believe that the God who created the universe and everything in it cares about every hair on our head, and every sorrow in our heart. But He loves us more than we can imagine and through Him all things are possible. “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” […]
In many cultures, cardinals have long symbolized loved ones who have passed away. I saw a Cardinal in my tree, The bright red color so beautiful to see. Thoughts of loved ones brought a smile to my face, As I watched it flitter about with grace. Visitors from Heaven they are said to be, I feel blessed that you came to visit me. (author unknown) Cardinals have always reminded me […]
We are living in an epic time in history, a time when fear has grabbed us by the throat and is holding fast. I’m trying hard not to obsess about coronavirus all day long, but it sure isn’t easy…. everywhere we turn there is bad news. It’s like driving past a car accident without gawking.

We’re grandparents four times over. We […]

I don’t have all the answers, but hopefully everything will become clear […]
This morning I woke up in my usual fibromyalgia fog and stumbled down the stairs to brew some java and get ready for a long day of writing. My first task is always to let out Fitzy for his morning tinkle. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the entryway and the front door was WIDE open. I was pretty freaked out. We moved out to the country for the […]
I have a friend on Facebook whose life seemed perfect. He constantly posted pictures of his happy family, fun get-togethers with friends, and romantic vacations. But behind the smiles was a life fraught with sadness. We all have chapters of our lives we keep under wraps. Sometimes things are not what they seem. When dealing with others, remember that we don’t always know the private hell they are enduring. Be […]
