The Truth

She knew the truth as soon as she saw His face. “Oh, God!  It’s true isn’t it?” “Yes,” he said simply. “This can’t be happening.  Why is this happening?” He quietly shook his head. “God, this isn’t fair.  I’ve always tried to live right.  How can this be happening to me?” His kind eyes looked […]

Dilly, Dilly

    I’ve never been a big fan of commercials.  They have a way of interrupting a good show just when something exciting is about to happen.  Of course, it’s getting harder and harder to find really good, decent shows to watch anymore.  But that’s another subject. I was recently watching TV when a commercial […]

The Journey Continues

At the end of July, Dad found out he was in remission from T-cell Lymphoma.  It was the answer to many prayers and God was given all the praise. He went back to his church on Sunday, August 5th, for the first time since March.  My brother and his wife, along with my daughter and […]

The Wrong Side of The Rope

My husband and I, along with three other couples from church participated in a Toy Run.  We rode motorcycles to Asheboro where the Toy Run was originating.  Everyone was asked to bring a toy or make a monetary donation to the Baptist Children’s Homes.  Once we got to Asheboro, we found ourselves in a group […]

I Want To Go Out Dancing

My granddaughter is a Princess.  She loves wearing her little dresses, especially when she can twirl around and see the skirt billowing out.  My grandson is into super heroes.  But the two of them find a way to merge their playtime.  Hadley will pretend she is the princess and will tell Hudson which super power […]

Mountain Ride

I did something the other weekend I never imagined I would have done. My husband had a motorcycle when we were first married but when I became pregnant and life started changing, he sold it.  But after a period of 30 years, he bought a Harley Davidson back in April. So one weekend, we joined […]

Just Hold On…..

If there is anything I learned when my Dad went through his battle with cancer, it was that nothing ever stays the same.  Things can change in a second.  Or less.  The Bible phrases it as, “in the twinkling of an eye.” We take so much for granted.  Things may be going smooth, life is […]

Dad’s Journey – Part 5

On Wednesday, July 5th, Dad went to the cancer center for the sixth, and we hoped, the final chemo treatment. For as long as I can remember, my Dad always wore button up shirts.  Whether they were dress shirts or work shirts, they were buttoned in the front and had pockets where he would keep […]

Dad’s Journey – Part 4

As with all of the previous treatments, Dad started feeling better the weekend before the next scheduled treatment.  That was June 10th and 11th.  He felt well enough to go to my brother and sister-in-law’s house for Sunday lunch.  That was the first time he had gone anywhere other than to the doctor or the […]

I Just Want To Go Home

If you stopped by because you read my devotion June 22, 2017, over at Encouragement Cafe, WELCOME!   So glad you are here!   Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go […]
