I have a few favorite scents.  Mainly I love a clean scent or vanilla.  Both of those are favorites for me.  The smell of clean is refreshing and the smell of vanilla is warm and cozy.  John 12:3 tells us of the scent that filled Mary’s home, “then took Mary a pound of ointment of … Read More


This fall, my husband and I were given a wonderful opportunity. We were asked if we would like to go on a trip to the Holy Land; Israel, God’s land and God’s people. We worked through a couple of conflicts and said, “Yes!” The trip began immediately with wonderful sights, archeological findings and biblical application … Read More


“That’s my stuff, Nana,” I hear Cute Kid # 3 say over and again. Aubrey has discovered a plastic hamburger container with a bun looking lid.

Daddy had congestive heart failure and his decline was evident; however, it is difficult to … Read More


“I glued it back together,” Mama will say.  My mom can fix anything with a little bit of glue.  She believes in that stuff.  She will try to glue anything at least once.  One of her foundational statements is, “Doctors even use glue to close up a person after surgery.”  We have laughed for many years about Mama and her … Read More


Have you ever had an elevator door close on you? If it was an older elevator the door might have closed on your arm, your leg or ½ your body. The bottom line is that you were not all in. Because you were not all in, the elevator was not operable. The elevator could not … Read More


It is so sweet watching a baby learning to walk.  I remember when our children learned to take those first steps.  Pulling up to a chair, letting go for a few seconds, turning and taking a couple of steps before falling down, trying over and over again, until finally…..there they went, stretching the band of independence a … Read More
