Mother’s Day 2017

So I went to church and then Clayton and I went to see Grandma for Mother’s day!  We wandered around Roger’s Gardens.         After work, Emily and Connor met us for Dinner.   Mom, I just don’t understand the soap from a casino!  Odd, even from you!

Via Dolorosa

The Stations of the Cross – The Passion Week took on a whole new meaning since going to Israel!  I walked the streets where Jesus carried my sin to Golgotha.  We started at the top of the Mt. of Olives near Bethany.  We walked to the Garden of Gethsemane and then up the Ascent to […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.    Philemon 1:20 Can you imagine this holiday during Bible times? It definitely would have a different impression to see a wad of intestines on a card. Scripture refers to the bowels when it talks about tenderness and […]

The prestigious prognosticator, Punxatawny Phil, saw his shadow today, which means we have 6 more weeks of Winter!  Even though I am certain that the weather and the seasons (especially in the calendarically challenged state of California) have nothing to do with a rodent and his shadow, I am so glad that this winter has […]

Recently, at a Christmas party, I was asked about the best gifts I have ever given and the best ones I have gotten.  I have been given more than my fair share over the years and since one of my love languages is gift giving, I had to think long and hard about this. I […]

Psalm 22:3 God inhabits the praises of His people Ps. 16:11 You make known to me the path of life: in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Prov. 118:24 The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. Prov 17:22 A cheerful heart […]
