Hummingbirds…

I am fascinated by hummingbirds.   They are truly amazing creatures.  Though so, so, tiny, they can seriously move across the air–when it’s mating season, they can fly up to sixty miles an hour!  “Normal” flight speeds are around thirty miles an hour, though.  There are seventeen species of hummingbirds (did you know that?).  Like …

Thorns…

Aaahhhh…thorns. What? Oh yes, how I do enjoy thorns.  Especially the ones that grab hold of your fingers even when you haven’t touched them–it’s as if they have their own minds. I live in the country.  In front of my house is a nicely unkempt area or two that my husband refers to as “animal …

Weeding…

I have just come inside from ANOTHER long, tiring morning of…weeding. I’m going to make a confession–I hate weeding. No, not hate.  Despise, abhor, loathe, detest, disdain..yes, a thesaurus is still a useful tool! Because I soooo detest this task, I put it off.  And put it off.  And put it off. Until I end up …

It’s tough being a mom…

So I sit in my living room, the quiet almost deafening. How could this be the same house?  Only hours before, it was filled with laughter and conversations. And now…     It’s tough being a mom.  I know I don’t have to tell you that, but I’m telling you that.  We work and fuss …

Here I am…

Soul thirsts…

Happy Monday!  Our verse for today is Psalm 42:2—“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.” If you know me personally, you are well acquainted with the fact that I always have water.  Everywhere I go, no matter how long I’ll be away from the house—I always carry a water bottle.  In fact, I …

Confessions…and the book that changed it all…

Hello and welcome to…confessions. I consider myself a “go-getter.”  I try to get things done in a timely manner. I follow through with my commitments…most of the time (this is where the confessions start!!). You see, I follow through with the commitments that I know others will see–church ministry, work, home responsibilities…with (sometimes) just enough …

Flourishing…

Good snowy Friday to you! I had to feature a sunny picture with our verse today!  From where I sit, I see snow on the ground, and sleet-like wet stuff falling from the sky.  Yep, this sunny-weather girl just needed a little blue sky in her day, so I got my fix through our graphic! …
