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

During my college days, my sister encouraged me to find a life's verse in God's word...a verse to hold on to that would be an anchor for the days ahead.  Psalm 16:11 became the frame in which the situations of life could be captured and viewed. #WalkingitoutwithJesus has taken me down many paths in the last… Continue reading The Path of Life {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

The Sky’s the Limit {Finding Life :: A 30-Day Challenge}

A few weeks ago my sister sent me a care package.  She's tracking my heart these days.  As the oldest, I think that's her job but she seems to be okay with that.  Life!

Hope for the Broken

I've come to realize I don't really like broken things.  I have a strong urge to fix them ...immediately!    If something was made to work a certain way, then work a certain way it should.  Anything less is ...well, irritating.  Somewhere in the idealistic-perfect-wanna-be-world of my mind, things are made to continue doing what they… Continue reading Hope for the Broken

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 ...
