Living on Leftovers

See this gorgeous cross? It is one of my favorites hanging in my home, yet every time I look at it I tell myself I need to “better” it. You see, although it is beautiful, it is not securely fastened to the wall. It was never positioned or measured perfectly. No time was taken to…

Bloom Where You’re Planted!

July 1. A year ago today was our BIG MOVING DAY…the day my husband and I left a place we’d lived for 35 years, for an area that was “just” across town. Across town in Houston might as well be a different state! At first, there was just exhaustion, anxiety, and a lot of apprehension.…

Here For Such A Time

These last 3 weeks have been 1 huge mistake… according to my spreadsheet. But not His. Our Wednesday ladies bible study had chosen a new upcoming study but when I went to purchase it a month or two ago, it was out of stock. As I was contemplating other options, the in-store video screen showcased…
