But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.  Isaiah 40:31

Happy TGIF!!!  Happy Last Day of February!!!

Too bad we can't also say...'Happy Last Day of Winter!'   But that's ok.  All those flowers under the ground, just waiting to bloom will be that much better for enduring a really harsh winter.  You'll neve...

Happy Thursday!

I have had some really interesting songs running through my head this week...just this evening, to tell you the truth.  (Circle of Life - Elton John and The Gambler - Kenny Rogers).  But, for purposes of this blog, I am only going to speak on The Gambler by Kenny Rogers.  Some of you may be w...

Happy Tuesday!

This is one of those blog entries that I am not sure where it's heading, but I am typing anyway.  I am just so glad to be on this side of the broken road.  For the past few weeks, I have been struggling with my health and my mental state was having iss...

Happy Monday!

My household had a fabulous weekend!  Lots of fun at my daughter's baby shower!  Now...we just need to figure out where to store all the wonderful gifts our friends and family blessed little Jr. with.  Pretty soon, we hope to be sharing some pictur...

The Lord liveth, and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.  Psalm 18:46

Happy TGIF!

Wow!  It has certainly been a week!  I miss doing these blog entries.  But by the time I get to my computer in the evening, my eyes are so irritated I can barely keep them open to view my screen.  However, I decided before my day really begins, I would try to do any entry.

How are you all doing?  Lots of new an...

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not on thy own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  Proverbs 3: 5,6

Happy TGIF!

Boy has this been a heck of a week...and it's not likely to calm down any for a few days, at least.  I have seemingly gone a bit overboard with my computer work and now have a slight problem with my corneas.  Needless to say typing at my computer now is a bit of a chore, so I ...

Happy Wednesday!

But first of all, I want to wish my son HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!  He was a smart one this week.  He decided to take this whole week off and do nothing but relax.  Very smart!

For some reason, I've been having the word 'Peace' as my key word for this week.  It coul...

Happy Tuesday!


I am sure many of you have heard when football players say what college/university they hailed from, that if they are from Ohio State University...they don't say 'Ohio State University'.  They say The Ohio S...

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Psalm 46:1

Happy Monday!

Another very quick weekend!  Wow!  Where does the time go?  The preparations are coming along very nicely.  We're only a couple of weeks away from the big day.  Thank goodness my daughter and I are lists people.  Otherwise, it would really be a hectic venture.  But, we are continually crossing items off our lists.  Fairly soon we w...

Happy Thursday!

What a difference a day makes!  Wednesday was an extremely snowy day.  I worked from my home office all day and also just watched the snow fall for hours on end.  I am truly blessed to have a job where working from home on bad weather days is acceptable.  This definitely could not have been done when I worked in the call c...

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.  2 Corinthians 10:5

Happy Wednesday!

OK, so hopefully you are not like me and allow your imaginations and thought life to make you sick...literally.  I heard so much talk and weather news about the winter storm that was heading our way that I basically made myself sick.  All I wanted...

Sometimes remembering to whom we really serve is difficult.  Or at least it seems that way to me when I look around at how others carry on their daily duties.  It could be in a number of different modes.  From the grocer...

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  Hebrews 11:1

Good morning!

Happy Monday!

We are off to a brand new week and a new month.  We have to be careful so as not to lose faith with the seemingly slow progress of certain goals we are reaching towards.  There are road blocks that are popping up at every corner to try to convince us that the end point is not going to happen.  Maybe certain outfits we...
