Are We All Just Done With 2020?

How many of us declared in January, this was going to be the best year yet? There were memes floating around social media about how the 2020 holidays fell on all the best days and it was going to be a fabulous year of celebrating. And now here we are. This year has not played…

What is He Really Watering

I looked out the window yesterday and saw him watering my flowers. Flowers that he readily admits he does not care for, especially because they need to be watered every day in the hot Texas sun. But there he was…watering my flowers…because he knows they bring me joy. When I saw it…my heart fluttered. Yes,…

Keep Shining

Last week at work, I was emailing back and forth with a woman trying to help her fix an issue. In her last email, she sent me an apology for wasting my time because she thought what I had been working on wasn’t needed.   She ended the email with “Keep Shining.”  It surprised me because I…

It’s Your Season

We have all heard the term “Seasons of Life”. Some people are encouraged by that term and others can’t stand it. Honestly, I am one that is encouraged by it because I know that whatever is going on in my life at this very moment…it will not last forever.   Every year as we grow weary…

Love Deeply

Just As It Was 16 Years Ago

You may have noticed there wasn’t a blog post from me last Monday. I actually wrote seven different drafts of which 0 turned out to be something I was pleased with enough to post. That lead to a discussion with my editor, JB, that I can only describe as “creative differences”. Bless his heart…I’m thankful…

How American Heroes are Born

Hurricane Harvey arrived in south Texas a few days ago and has caused tremendous loss and heartache in America. As we sit here safe and dry at Wild Blue Yonder, our prayers and concern are with our fellow Texans just down the road. The pictures and stories coming out of the affected areas are full…

With My Eyes To The Sky…

Today was a very special day in America. We were blessed with a unique opportunity to experience a solar eclipse. While our family back in the Midwest marveled at 100% totality, we enjoyed about 76% here in Texas. JB secured a pair of the approved viewing glasses and I made a pinhole camera similar to…
