I enjoy clouds. I like big fluffy clouds that slowly meander across a blue sky like sheep grazing in a meadow. I like big black dramatic clouds that race across the sky on a stormy day. But clouds that are a blank gray, as… Continue Reading “Gloom & Boom”
Goodbye 2022. Hopefully 2023 will be less crazy and difficult, but I’m not exactly holding my breath. What I will do is resolve to face its challenges with faith and courage, come what may. As I write this post, I’m drinking coffee and looking… Continue Reading “Goodbye 2022”
I hope everyone had a Christmas filled with love and peace. I also pray that you all safely made it to your Christmas destinations and home again. The weather outside was frightful for much of the USA. I heard some Media calling it “THE… Continue Reading “The Weather Outside”
May the Light of the World bring you peace and hope. Luke 2:1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone… Continue Reading “Merry Christmas”
The rain continued this morning, but in the afternoon blue skies chased away the clouds. It was cool enough this morning that I wore a jacket when I went outside, but this afternoon it warmed up enough that I didn’t need one. We are… Continue Reading “Roosting Turkeys”
I’m a bit late in wishing every American a wonderful Independence Day. I love July 4th with its cookouts, parades, and fireworks to celebrate freedom. We were (and still are) patriotic. When I was younger, my Dad bought a small cannon. It was, I… Continue Reading “Freedom”
I came across this beautiful video in early December and I wanted to share it with you. My daily prayer is that in this season and throughout the year, we all experience the true Light of the World that shines in the darkness.
Today is Hannah Joy’s birthday. Well, we don’t know the day she was actually born, but four years ago today we adopted her from the animal shelter. I’m calling this her birthday because she began her new life with us. She was the best… Continue Reading “Hannah Joy’s Birthday”
Last year at this time, I was declaring that 2020 would be a year in which we would enjoy a year free of toxic/abusive people, a year of peace and quiet and enjoyment, a year in which we would work on re ccovery and… Continue Reading “2020/2021”
I hope you all had a very nice Christmas despite the challenges of this year. We have had a Koselig holiday season. Koselig is a concept that is deeply rooted in Norwegian culture. It is the feeling of coziness and being comfortable. It is about… Continue Reading “HOLIDAYS”
Whatever is beautiful. Whatever is meaningful. Whatever brings you peace and joy. May it be yours this Christmas holiday and throughout the coming year.
I swear that time has become timey-wimey-wibbly-wobbly. I blink and then find that a month has gone by without me noticing. It feels as if time speeds up faster and faster as we get older. I have mostly spent the last month crocheting gifts… Continue Reading “Hanukkah-mas-ary”
It is early, the sky is still quite dark, but before the day gets busy, I would like to wish all of my fellow Americans a very happy Thanksgiving Day. And everyone reading from other parts of the world, I hope you have a… Continue Reading “Happy Thanksgiving”
Note: WordPress has totally changed their format and I’m struggling with how to understand and use their new way of writing posts. It might take me some time to learn. I really wish sites would leave well enough alone. Ugh.. End of rant. Today… Continue Reading “October Birthday”
It is Memorial Day today in the USA, a day when we remember those who have given their lives in defense of our country. This Memorial feels deeply meaningful to me this year. Yesterday started out cloudy, but the clouds cleared away and it… Continue Reading “Memorial Day Weekend”
