The Last Hurrah

The Last Hurrah It is amazing how far we have advanced. When a dictionary usually only had definitions for a “word” they now have definitions for phrases also. I was shocked to actually find a definition for the “Last Hurrah”. The free dictionary defines it as 1. a final appearance or effort, especially at the […]

Knowing God, Anger, Seasons and Reasons

March 20, 2018 – Knowing God We go through our lives meeting many people. Besides or relatives, there are so many that we meet. Pastors, teachers, friends, co-workers, neighbors, bosses, clerks, business owners and doctors are just a few. Some come into our lives and stay there, others are there for awhile and then are […]

In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb, Taking for Granted and Electricity

March 5, 2018 – In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb For the most part, the majority of us look to the month of March as the precursor to Spring. March is normally considered the month that “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” The first couple of weeks are […]

July 10, 2017 – The Cardinals I’ve talked about the many creatures in my back yard several times. Each one is beautiful in a different way. The birds are a multitude of colors, shapes and personalities. The one Blue Jay will sit in the Formosa tree next to the deck and literally yell at me […]

Prayer, Sunshine,Rain

February 4, 2017 – Prayer Now I know that during the course of all of my “Thankfulness” articles I have repeated the same subjects at times, but, when I do that, it is because I find another reason to be thankful for the same things. It often seems like the Lord opens my eyes from […]

Waking Up, Winter and Family

December 17, 2016 – Waking Up There are some mornings when I wake up that I just want to curl up and go back to sleep. I’m just so warm and cozy under the blankets, just so comfortable that I don’t want to move, but I swing my feet to the floor, stand up and […]

Rain, Windows and Fire

Grandkids

February 26, 2016 I love my grand kids. I have seven grand kids from my only son. I have 8 step-grand kids and and two great grandsons. I also have many “adopted” grandchildren. I’m not even too sure how many, from children that I helped to raise. I got to spend some of the early […]

What do We Take for Granted

January 13, 2016 Life is busy. We all know that. As you get older, some things get harder to do. For instance, I cannot tolerate real cold or hot temperatures like I used to. Today, I am thankful for heat in the winter and air conditioning and fans in the summer. Our seasons have changed […]
