Slow and Steady

Before I fell, my usual walking time was a mile in 15 minutes..and I went two to three miles. After the fall ( seven weeks after to be exact) I am walking at a mile in 30 minutes and walking one mile.   My goal is to not be concerned at the distance or the pace. […]

Walking

Yesterday, I took Bentley on his lead, and we walked a mile. We walked slowly and carefully. This would normally be no big deal. But to me now,  it was a very big deal. Six weeks ago, I fell and fractured a vertebra in my back.  I am so grateful for the prayers and to […]

Resting

Bob likes to buy me books. He understands that I love to read.  He just gave me a book called “You Carried Me” by Melissa Ohden.  Melissa is the survivor of a botched abortion. She details her search for her biological parents and her journey from anger and shame to faith and forgiveness. This is […]

Enjoy

I can complain about the weather, or enjoy its beauty. The forecast is calling for minus 25 to minus 35 below zero. There is snow covering everything and icicles hanging down from the roof of the old barn. Two of the oldest Great Pyrenees dogs will come inside and stay in the basement next to […]

Found On A Wall

From an anonymous poet on a WWII cellar wall in a Jewish hiding place was the following. “I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining. I believe in love, even when I feel it not. I believe in God, even when He is silent.” The message is ageless and for all of […]

At Our House

It is snowing now, big fluffy flakes are drifting down. Bob is watching Green Bay win a football game and putting new strings on his guitar.  Supper is almost ready, Chile, salad, garlic bread, and pecan pie. We had company coming over for dinner and they just called and cancelled. The roads are bad out […]

Glory!

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the Glory of the Lord shown around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them,” Be not afraid, for behold, […]

Thankful!

In all the turmoil raining down on America, it is good to focus on the simple, everyday things. Today, I will enjoy the quiet time, the ordinary times, and  be thankful to the Lord. Bob is a “Happy Camper”. He really enjoyed his breakfast of  French toast with maple syrup, fresh eggs from our chickens […]

2017 -My Pantry

My food pantry is full of last summer’s garden produce. We are well prepared for winter on our little farm.  Most of my family and friends know about my pantry. What some of them do not know is that in 2007 I began a “Prayer Pantry”. This is where I store up prayers for me […]

Hero

Helen Keller is one of my heroes. I love it when people overcome and become! She once said,” God is the light in my darkness, the voice in my silence.”
