• My True Time saver

    I had a lot to do today; I wanted to finish cleaning the vacant rental property so I could call for an inspection.  So, I jumped into doing stuff before I took time to follow my usual routine of prayer, Bible readings, incense, harp music, hot tea and sitting. And, you know what happened?  Nothing!  I didn’t accomplish one thing. …

  • God Answers

      “God, please help me make it through this!” Tired and exhausted, I tried my best to keep up and hang in there, but I was feeling sick to my stomach.  This was the third day of a four-day hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT) in Franklin, North Carolina.  For twenty years I’d talked about hiking on the trail and…

  • Allow Faith to be Stronger than Fear

    “For God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but (He gave us) a spirit of power and love and self-control” 2 Timothy 1:7 (NCV) When we read the headlines in the newspaper or listen to the news, it’s so easy for fear to riddle our bodies.  Fear so painful and so paralyzing that it can literally…

  • God is in the Midst of all Things

      I had my annual mammogram  August 6, 2019.  I wasn’t nervous.  I expected a good report.  But, as I sat waiting for the results, I started reflecting upon what the doctor might say.  I started thinking about family members, friends and even strangers who have sat in this same chair waiting for results.  I thought about them, people just…

  • Give Your Dreams Wings

    …You knew there were better things waiting for you… Hebrews 10:34 (NLT) I discovered that once I write down the dreams I have in my heart, read them out loud, pray over them and then release them; I always feel calmer and lighter.  It’s as if a load has been lifted and my dreams take wings. It reminds me of…

  • Give Your Dreams Wings, Part 2

      “When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.” Psalm 145:16 (NLT) After I wrote yesterday’s post “Give Your Dreams Wings,” it was placed on my heart that I neglected to mention a very important practice; the practice of tithing, giving the first tenth of our income. Growing up, my mom, Essie Mae…

  • Friendship

        The older I get, the more I cherish my friendships.  I have been blessed to have several long-term friendships. My friend, Zsuzsanna, of 27 years lost her sister and her mother within three days of each other.  I promised her if anything happened,  I would travel to Hungary.  Now, here I was flying solo over 5000 miles and…

  • Eating Pole Cat and Fruitcake

    During one of our visits to Sumner GA, we took a side trip to visit Essie Parker, my mom’s great aunt.  We  drove on a long winding dirt road through the woods past large, beautiful trees until we came upon a large house in the middle of a clearing.  We went to the door, could see that no one was…
