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?”
GOD’S PROMISES ARE BEAUTIFUL
My husband called from the other room, “Look out back! There’s a rainbow!” Since I enjoy rainbow sightings immensely, I rushed to the window. Here’s what I saw: It was beautiful, so I stepped outside to get a better look. And I’m so glad I did! What a blessing from God to walk into myContinue reading “GOD’S PROMISES ARE BEAUTIFUL”
Thank you, Lord, for being forsaken for me. Thank you, Lord, for forgiving me when I know not what I do. Thank you, Lord, for securing my eternity with you in paradise. Thank you, Lord, that IT IS FINISHED.
What Does This Mean?
I was probably about 12 years old. We were on our way home from church, and my cousin, who was visiting from out of town, had attended the service with us. Her church background was very different from mine, so the question she posed during our car ride home should not have surprised me, butContinue reading “What Does This Mean?”
A Rat Toy for Valentine’s Day?
I’m writing this on Valentine’s Day. No, my husband did not surprise me with a rat toy this morning. In honor of this day of love, I wanted to share a thought that’s been tumbling around in my heart a lot lately. It has, in fact, been changing my heart since I first heard itContinue reading “A Rat Toy for Valentine’s Day?”
How God Made Me a Writer
As I sit in my recliner, I glance up from my keyboard to gather my wordsmithing thoughts. I suddenly pause. As I take in my surroundings, I am struck once again with the realization of what God has done. He really made this my reality. He really did it. It’s still hard for me toContinue reading “How God Made Me a Writer”
When the Penguin Talks Back
Picture a cute little penguin in a red ball cap, carrying a blue lunch box. This is Petra, a character I created for one of my children’s books. I sent him on an adventure, during which his encounters include an octopus searching for eight shoes, a juggling walrus with only one tusk, and a gigglingContinue reading “When the Penguin Talks Back”
Ponderful Pathways: My Path
Fill ‘er up, God!
I’m not a coffee drinker. Never have been. My taste buds don’t crave that bean. They prefer the sweeter cocoa variety. With an overarching saccharine inclination, my beverage choices lean toward hot chocolate, sweet tea, fruit juices, and, when I want to get really crazy, Mountain Dew. As tasty as these treats are, at the endContinue reading “Fill ‘er up, God!”
