Thankful for…another snow day….and just another day, actually. Today I’ll just let the photos do the talking <3.       “Each day is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift to Him.” – T.D. Jakes Blessings ~ H   Thankful ThursdayRead more

Thankful Thursday

So, it looks like Winter. It feels like Winter. It actually IS Winter. But…there are some very cool signs that say that it won’t always be Winter. Love that. Potential for growth is all around, but sometimes disguised as …Winters. But if you look really close, you might see some teeny tiny buds reminding you that Spring is just around the corner. It might take some searching, and a really good zoom lens, but oftentimes when we look for signsRead more

…a few thoughts on detours and destinations…

Just a few thoughts tonight. Spoke with a dear friend about his place right now. Lots of constant trying to move forward but maybe not seeing the movement because there’s so much ground ahead and goals to move toward, to move forward, to press on to the what’s next with little rest between that and what’s behind.

Silence feels right at home in the woods.Read more

Here’s to self-expression that quietly and loudly says, “I’m not afraid to be different.”  We can be part of aRead more

…for today…

I’ve been making bird feeders again.  “For today” feeders is what I like to call them.  And here’s why…  In the past year, the phrase “for today” has become one of my favorite, favorite phrases. I’ve always appreciated the saying of “One Day At a Time. This quickly became, “one moment at a time” when I was a young mom to more little ones than my arms could hold.  (Our third son was born when our oldest was 2…and by the time ourRead more

So this past week, I was really convicted about something. And that word “convicted” stuck out to me.  I mean in the Christian realm we can use that word quite a bit. We say that we are convicted of this or convicted of that. Oftentimes it might be the ‘little things’ like eating too much or wasting time or saying things before praying through. And I thought about how so often when we (I) say we are convicted of something,Read more
