Handling the Hard Times

I’ve been mostly silent these past few months. Pulling back, withdrawing, keeping to myself more than usual. That’s what I do when life gets hard, and right now, life is hard. My grandson, Elijah, has been in the hospital nearly three months. This precious blonde headed, blue-eyed, energetic two year old boy needs a new... Continue Reading →

God, it’s me.

Good morning, God. It’s me. I’m up a little earlier than usual this morning. I’ve made my coffee. I’m seated in my office, at my small black desk, to meet with You.

It was time.  And, might I add, Praise God! Our little... Continue Reading →

In your inability to hide your excitement when you spot someone familiar. Yes, there is... Continue Reading →

I’m praying for a friend. Actually for a few friends. Friends who are going up against difficult assignments.

What a challenging... Continue Reading →
