Beulah Land :: Remembering My Dad

They  say he was born at midnight.  August 8th into August 9th.  We always celebrated both days ...just in case.  Carrie Esther (Lawrence) Waters and John George Waters welcomed their third-born child into the world in the middle of the night in August of 1923, in the little town called Inman, South Carolina. He was… Continue reading Beulah Land :: Remembering My Dad

When It’s Hard to Thank God

I wasn't really mad at God or anything.  I just pouted a lot.  You know ...that poochy, pouty face a kid makes when they reluctantly obey but really, really would rather do what they want to do! God had nudged my husband to pack up and move from a rural area in the northeast to… Continue reading When It’s Hard to Thank God

A Letter to My Dad on Father’s Day {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

Dear Dad, I haven't seen you for the last 17 Father's Days.  That seems  hard to believe.  I had a dream about you after we said good-bye here on earth.  You were riding in some wagon --maybe horse-drawn.  You looked like you were in your 20's but your smile told me everything ...it was the… Continue reading A Letter to My Dad on Father’s Day {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

The Air Conditioned Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge }

This 30-Day Challenge of Finding Life gets a little tricky.  I've made myself accountable to look for life every day and share that here for the 30 days of June-- hopefully encouraging you to look for life in the process.  As I sat down to write tonight, the first (and maybe only) word that initially… Continue reading The Air Conditioned Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge }

The Anniversary of New Life { Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge }

It's the first anniversary since my Mom entered into her new life beyond this world.  Today I remember her life and her journey and the gift of our time together.  Life! The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still… Continue reading The Anniversary of New Life { Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge }

Conversations and Coffee …a Turtle and the Truth {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

Don't laugh ...I'm getting more and more creative with alliterations for the titles of  these 30-Day Challenge posts!  It gives me something good to think about.  Life! Today was unusually pleasant in the warm state of Alabama...sunny but not scorching ...breezy but not blustery.  There I go again ...alliterations.  It's the problem of being raised… Continue reading Conversations and Coffee …a Turtle and the Truth {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}
