What’s for Dinner?

I really do not like cooking dinner on Wednesdays because we have church and I don’t really have much time to prepare a meal, feed the family, clean the kitchen and then head to church….plus, we don’t get home until after 9 because we hang out for awhile and chat with some of our friends. […]

My apologies

I must apologize to my friends and family that have been looking for a new post. I had gotten into the habit of taking pics on my mobile and then uploading them with a post. Well, for some reason, the last 3 posts that I did that way never posted. I thought I was keeping […]

Lesson from the vacuum

Yes, my vacuum cleaner taught me a lesson. It is amazing the things that God can use to speak to you! I needed to vacuum the living room Friday afternoon so I plugged one of my vacuum cleaners in to start the job. I have the bagless type that you can see the dirt through […]

Define “Good Day”

What makes a day good? Is it that everything goes perfectly as planned? If that were the case, I would never have a good day because there are always little hiccups in my schedule and I try to just go with the flow….which is something I have learned how to do over the years. As […]
