Writing Music

Writing Music

Not having the ability to write or read music is a bit hampering when the Lord puts a song on my heart. I wrote the words to an Easter Cantata years ago but didn’t know how to put the music I was hearing in my head to the words. After several tries by various people,...

How many of us have followed a car on a street or freeway only to see it wobble from lane to land. It is a good bet the driver is on his/her cell phone! Despite the penalties, people still do this. I learned long ago, when I got my first cell phone, that I could not...

Television Specials

With a few friends, we gathered to watch the Super Bowl game on Sunday. I haven’t watched much football since my husband died, but this was a special game, so we brought food and compared teams and prepared for a fun afternoon. Then came half-time, with JayLo and...
Doggie Gone

Doggie Gone

Our family is sad for Natalie, my youngest son’s wife, whose little sweet 10 pound dog ran away on New Year’s Eve. There were fireworks all around and she slipped out of the house when their bigger Rottweiler pushed the back door open. The gate just happened to be...

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions

Okay, it’s that time again. We get pencil and paper and write down the things we are going to resolve to do in the New Year. Right!! How many last through the month of January or even the first week of January! My biggest foe is sugar. I love cookies, fudge and all...
Holiday Shuffle

Holiday Shuffle

When we have in-laws, whether son-in-law, daughter-in-law, or other in-laws, the holidays can get complicated. Do we go to daughter-in-law’s family, or son’s family? What about children from a spouse’s former marriage? You want to cover all your bases, but sometimes,...
