White Buckled Shoes & Easter (ponderings)

  My birthday is in the fall and was a very long time ago!   (Let’s just say dial phones and black and white TV, yup, that is a long time ago!)   I have another birthday that creates a birthday celebration in my life,   Easter. As I grew up my Mom would tell…

Wars within

War is something that I have never been able to grasp because of the huge loss of life.   My logical brain understands that there are powers that are within the world that have reeked havoc in the world and the only way to bring peace was through war.    World War II is one…

A Mother’s Heart Pt 2 – (pondering)

“All because two fell in love” has a different meaning right now.   Today is Valentine’s Day and as you already know Darwin is the love of my life, my valentine.  We fell in love, got married, had a beautiful daughter, had a handsome son.   They grew up to be two amazing adults who…

Everyday with Darwin (ponderings)

It is amazing really how much fuss is made over Valentines’ day.   As soon as New Years is done the hearts start showing up everywhere.   Probably my favourite place to see hearts commercially is in Starbucks.  After all they have new cups with hearts!!!  (Ask my husband about my love for Starbucks cups)….

In Law vs Out Law

Remember the days of Bonanza and Have Gun – Will Travel?   (Wow, I am aging myself here!)  There was always an outlaw or “bad guy”.   Then of course Paladin, or Little Joe or Ben Cartwright would save the day, the ranches, or towns would be in order once again and all was well….

Spring…. and clouds

Psalm 36:5,6      “Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,  your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O Lord.” I am guessing that if I sat with each of you, one of the things that would come…
