Baby Steps in the Right Direction

Baby Steps in the Right Direction

Few movies have had lasting impact on our family like “What About Bob?”.  We laugh. We cry. It moves us!  …but we mostly laugh!   My husband and kids can have entire conversations using lines from this movie.  It’s very possible we’ve subconsciously memorized the entire script. God knows this, I’m sure, and  it’s not … Continue reading

Carry On

Carry On

2016 has had a rough terrible start!  In contrast, 2015 was a year full of amazing travel and family time in beautiful, scenic places like Montana, Connecticut, Mexico, New Hampshire, and Australia –along with our more frequent trips to see  family living nearby in Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina.  But this year … By the time this … Continue reading

A Prayer for Your Journey

A Prayer for Your Journey

To all my fellow travelers … those whose souls are road weary and those whose hearts are racing full-steam ahead … May your path lead you to pleasant places … May you knock on doors of opportunity and pause at intriguing places along your journey to reflect, listen, and learn … May you savor time with God  in … Continue reading

The End of the World …and More

The End of the World …and More

A theme captivating many movie-watchers over the years –The End of the World Is Coming !  My husband and I found ourselves eating popcorn to such a movie last week and if nothing else,  it brought up some thought-provoking  conversation. The radio announcer broke through all regularly scheduled programming to announce that all hope for help was … Continue reading

We’re Always “Better Together”

We’re Always “Better Together”

I love God.  I love people.  I love connecting the two. I believe life is always “better together”.  Since the beginning of creation, God saw that it was very good for Adam  to have Eve.  There’s no shame in needing others.  It’s the way we were created. For a few years now I’ve been very closely … Continue reading

Because We All Have Bridges to Cross

Because We All Have Bridges to Cross

I see life  in pictures and believe a soundtrack should be playing in the background throughout most of the day.  My husband once said if I ever wrote a book it would be mainly pictures with quotes and verses.  I’m a big fan of addicted to canva,  picmonkey, and the  Fontlab app  for photo editing and … Continue reading

Looking for Direction?

Looking for Direction?

I have a confession to make.  I. Love. My. Google. Maps. GPS App!  It’s like having a good  friend in the car with me telling where to go without me stressing over looking at a map or squinting to see street signs.  “She” just tells me the next turn at the 1/4 mile mark and … Continue reading

When It’s Time to Put Away the Christmas Decorations

When It’s Time to Put Away the Christmas Decorations

In our house, here’s how it happens just about every year … Christmas decorations and Christmas music have full approval the minute the Thanksgiving turkey has been gobbled up and appropriate naps have taken place.  After that, the house is officially in “Christmas Mode” inside and out without any questions or pondering.   Every room … Continue reading

Faith and Fog

Faith and Fog

It dawned on me one day all the way up in New Hampshire on a foggy morning as I watched my husband kayak on Swanzey Lake …faith and fog feel an awful lot alike some days.  The way seemed clear the day before but on this day — this moment — the path looks strangely dim …unrecognizable.  Was this the … Continue reading

An Open Door

An Open Door

This space has been sitting quietly for awhile…like a guest bedroom.  The door would open every now  and then long enough to  update the pictures on the wall,  dust off a few things here and there, and check to see if any mail had arrived .  Too much of life in between  tends to close some … Continue reading
