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…

Too Many Keys!

I am alway accused of having too many keys on my key ring.  I guess I do, but when I try and reduce them, well… I just don’t.   Each one gets used many times during the week, or at least most of them.   I have been told that the weight of them can…

Flying into the wind or Flapping

In our home birds hold a special place.  Darwin feeds them in feeders and then we sit and watch with great delight how they have their own politics as to who is at the feeder first, longest and basically is the boss. This morning was not unlike most mornings, breakfast on the table and looking…

Have you found an Agate?

Recently we had our company dinner to celebrate two of the men we have had working for us for over 20 years.   It was great to get to visit and celebrate the dedication of these two guys, they have become family.   While we were visiting Justin and his wife Erin began to tell…

Ready set… old?

Isn’t it funny, when you are a kid you can’t wait to get older, then time ticks on and you are all of a sudden 50 and you wish you could be a kid again.  I am way beyond 50 now.. I won’t say how way beyond, but let’s just say 70 is on the…

Gratitude

Reading my daughter’s facebook post this morning on this last year brought a lot of emotions.   Overwhelming gratitude is first and foremost.  Gratitude for God’ hand of mercy and strength tops the list as we look back over the hard that started October 2, 2017. Many days were rattled with uncertainty of where it…

What’s in a Name?

One of the more perplexing things when you have a baby is what you will call this new little life.   After all, this name will be with them for ever.  Unless… you pick something they don’t like and they change it later in life, hence the perplexity.  You hold the little one in your…

Misguided Worship

This morning I am sitting in my living room.   I have to admit, I am skipping church this morning.  Emotions are high, and I just know I would just sit there and cry.   This past 14 months has been heavy.   If you have followed this blog, then you know what this time…
