Seven

After Us I heard a statistic when I was first widowed that every cell in my body would be replaced in a seven year span, so that none of my cells now would ever have “known” Jim.  I googled that and it is not true! Seven is just a number and on the other side […]

I’m Thirsty

I am not sure what this will look like as I blog, but I am sensing a need to thirst after God in 2016.  For whatever reason, which I could pinpoint but do not care to limit it to that, I have not really been thirsty for God in recent memory and therefore my soul […]

The 5th anniversary – Nov. 5

So today is the 5th anniversary of the day Jim breathed heaven for the first time.  That day will always be surreal for me as I reflect on each moment of that day.  There were highlights like singing over Jim as he left the shadowlands for glory.  There are regrets and things I would have done […]
