He is Risen

“Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing…

Desperate Silence

In facing a time of extreme worry, stress and all consuming fear, silence feels like a horrible thing.  It is a reminder of the helplessness of the current situation.  It is a time that our own thoughts can feel as if they are going to devour us and bring us to a place where our…

High atop the trees – Eagles

Yesterday while driving down one of the back farm roads, I noticed a bald eagle atop a huge tree.  It was substantially taller than any other tree around for a few miles.   Now, around here in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia it is not unusual to see Bald Eagles, especially this time of year. …

Family – how do you carry yours?

The greatest pleasures I have in life are summed up in my husband, children, in-law children and grandchildren.   I believe that I was born for the single purpose of loving them.   I often times wish that I could see into their hearts what I see in their eyes.

2019 Thankful List – Darwin

Being married to my best friend has to this day and I know will be the same beyond today, been the greatest adventure.   After over 30+++ years there have been many changes in both of us.  Not only appearance, but our outlook, tolerances and opinions have morphed and changed to where we are today.  We…

Happy New Year wish from me to you!

I had written a New Years post about a week ago to go live at midnight and it disappeared, obviously human error…. mine. Thank you for taking time to read through my posts this last year.   I have always loved to write, because I have as many words floating around in my head and those…

Merry Christmas from Heartbeat’s House

I love being a Mom.   I remember the time I held my two children in my arms for the first time.  Those memories don’t fade.   Counting fingers and toes and touching their hair for the first time.. precious memories. I think of Mary, Jesus Mom.   She was a young woman, so much…

First

Christmas holds a variety of traditions and beliefs for everyone.   Lifestyle, upbringing, and personal choice is the path that leads to the traditions and beliefs that we hold to our hearts as precious and as truth. For me one of the traditions that is closer to my heart than I can say is, being…
