This image was taken by me in the home I used to live in.  Winter was steadily providing snow and I was stronger then and loved to go out in the middle of the night to shovel as I was a banker then and needed to get to my office.  The moonlight reflected on the new fallen snow glowed  so my yard lookedlike midday.  There were always neighbors out doing the saame thing as me.  We often had PJs on with storm wear.  I can still feel the warmth of those times in my life!

Warmth In Winter


Though it’s still winter,

with you always in my heart

i celebrate spring!

We are human!  We fall short, we grow impatient, we begin to consider “what if . . .”  Take it to the Lordand be washed in His grace and know His amazing love!

Hope NOT Misspent


The clouds lingered long.

Will the light never return?

The dampness of my tears,

The ache in my limbs,

The longing for something more . . .

All forgotten in an instant

As my gaze found the sun!

. . . And the sheep know His voice!

The Lord spoke to my soul!

He often lovingly whispers, but this time He called out victoriously to my soul and this was His message which I must share!

holding hands


Get up and dance!

Do you not hear the glad sound?

Have you not seen the sun?

Is the splendor of this day lost to you?

Place your feet on the floor!

Lift your hands!

As the trumpet sounds

Sail across the floor in harmony with me!

Dance, clap, sing, share!

I am yours!

You are mine!

Is this not cause to celebrate?

How fierce is His love?  Remember David and Goliath!  He will do the same for YOU!

We are unique!

This was no accident!

How could the garden be

nearly so beautiful

if the Gardener planted

only one type of seed!

Don’t seek vengeance. Don’t bear a grudge;

but love your neighbor as yourself, for I am Jehovah.

betty carol

There are really none like my late friend Betty, pictured here on the right with her Mom on the left.  Her heart?  Prime example!  THE MOUSE!  If I met one in my house we are sure to find I freaked out and left town until it met its demise!  Not Betty!  She found one in the attic,thought it was SOOOOO cute,and fixed up a hamster cage for it.  It became family!

With a loving heart like that, can you imagine what a blessing she was to humans? 

Leviticus 19:18

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

Who is my neighbor?

She is the universe . . . ‘My quest, my duty?

To love her,

To protect her,

To encourage her,

To bless her Creator!
