The deep end of the pool was only 5’ 6”. But I’m a mere 5’ 4”. So, even on my tip-toes, my head would be underwater if I ventured into the depths. So, I didn’t venture. Even when my adorable nephews wanted me to. I was happy to play with them in the water –Continue reading “In Over My Head”

Got a light?
I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. My husband was standing mere inches from me, but there wasn’t even a hint of his handsome blue eyes in the darkness. We were in Hannibal, MO – or more accurately – under it. Inside Mark Twain Cave, we were exploring the caverns made legendaryContinue reading “Got a light?”
DO NOT WEEP. BEHOLD, THE LION

GOD’S PROMISES ARE BEAUTIFUL

WE NEED BETTER WEAPONS
The battle is fierce. The strongholds, formidable. Daily, we face terror from without…and within. We walk into this battle with self-control, resolve, desire, strategy, innovation.
