Sleepless nights are hard. Getting less sleep or interrupted sleep gets old fast. There's something wonderful about a good night's sleep. So much hinges on a good night's sleep too. Recently I've gotten off a medication that had caused me to sleep soundly. It's not the reason I took it but it was a nice... Continue Reading →

Alone or with God

One morning while reading and journaling, I saw a shadowy thing go by. I thought, "hummm, that's weird. Wonder what that was." But then I saw clearly what it was. It was a grey rat!

Walk Humbly with Your God

A Hawaiian vacation would have been so nice. I had planned to be there this very day. But it was cancelled because of Covid. We planned this vacation a year ago and saved all year long in hopes that just maybe it would be possible. But the condo there cancelled our reservations. This is just... Continue Reading →

Do What is Right

It takes all your focus just to survive. Quite honestly, there is no shame in it. The Bible says to... Continue Reading →

Letting Go

One of my yearly Summer projects is going through my kid's rooms to remove the things they've outgrown.

This is Just a Test

Life is sometimes so difficult that you feel like you are being put through a test. It's like you are in a tunnel of trials. Although one crisis gets cleared upĀ  another crazy circumstance comes your way. When will there be light at the end of this tunnel? I experienced my own crazy moments which... Continue Reading →

Bug Off

The last couple of months we have been "Safe at Home." But this last month I have not felt safe at home. Remember all that rain we had at the beginning of all this? It was nice. It kept us California girls at home, inside, where we were supposed to be. With all that rain... Continue Reading →
