It’s been awhile since I posted an update, so thought I ‘d share what’s been going on with me. I’m sure I’m not the only one to be whizzing through summer. It just gets faster and faster each year. I went on vacation to Florida in June. We rented a house with some of myContinue reading “Summer News”

91 (a Musing)
Today I was going to write my classic Tuesday poem, but I’ve been bombarded by the number 91 recently so thought I would see what the Internet had to say about this number. In the last month two people unrelated to me have both brought me the message to read Psalm 91 and this morningContinue reading “91 (a Musing)”
My Erma Experience
Last week I went to the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop, an event I had been looking forward to since December. It is a place for humor and human interest writers to gather. I began my time in workshops from Sharon Short on “Finding the Writer’s Voice” and Adair Lara on “Crafting Compelling Personal Essays.” TheContinue reading “My Erma Experience”
This Messy Life
Sometimes life gets messy. Dirty, stinky, messy. Negative vibes throw you into a tailspin and you wonder why it happens. The key to dealing with a stinky mess is to take one step at a time. Eventually you can trudge through the gray to emerge into the light on the other side. So what’s inContinue reading “This Messy Life”
The Elbow (a Musing)
What a weird thing, this elbow. Even the word, upon repetition, sounds awkward: elbow…elbow…elbow. We all have one, but are they ever thought about?

Bumping the elbow creates a striking sensation in the funny bone, both tickly andContinue reading “The Elbow (a Musing)”

I just got back from a wonderful long and refreshing weekend with my writing buddy! Our journey began when I picked her up at the airport and we headed off to Amish country, stopping to see three giant baskets along the way. The first was not actually a basket, but the Longaberger Corporate Offices, builtContinue reading “Retreat 2016”
What is the Bible?
Boy, that is indeed a loaded question, and by asking it and giving an answer, I am definitely setting myself up for criticism. However, when God gives me a task, I must obey. This may be the most evangelistic post I’ll ever write, at least it is up until this point. Am I comfortable? HeckContinue reading “What is the Bible?”
Spiritual and Physical Warrior
Good morning, It occurred to me this morning as I worked out that I went to a Halloween party last weekend and did that thing I always do lately, but never intend to do: told a new person I met that I love Jesus – as soon as I walked in the door. I doContinue reading “Spiritual and Physical Warrior”
