We all have to start somewhere

We have to start somewhere

  My daughter’s friend gave her a baby redwood tree. It is about two feet tall and sitting in a large pot out in the shade of our front porch. Redwoods and Sequoias grow to be about 300 feet tall and the largest one is about 100 feet in circumference.  Yikes... But...

Be Still – Finding God’s Peace

When life is wild and uncertain. Fear is coming at you from every corner. The best thing to do is to stop. BE STILL. Take a deep breath. Find a place that is quiet and draw in God's peace. It will be in that quietness that you can find God. He will meet you there. He...
God's plans for us

God’s Plans

Isn't it wonderful to know that God has plans for us? Even when we don't know what is next in our life, He does. He knows everything about us. He knows what we need every moment of our lives. And He wants the very best for us. He wants to give us hope and a future....
Healing from Grief

From Grief to Life

So while I was sitting in prayer this morning, I started thinking about my daughter and how much I missed her. It’s been two years since she died.

Stop Living in the Future!

I find myself thinking about everything that I need to do. And then that drifts into what I haven't done and suddenly fear about the future has wrapped around me. And it feels so real. What if? The car breaks down, the money runs out, someone gets sick, and on it...

I will seek him who my soul loves

Seek the One You Love

It's been proven that human beings can't live without love. Orphaned children will fail to thrive if they are not held and spoken to gently. Tiny preemies need to hear their mother's voice and know she is near them. We need love. And the older we get, we discover we...
Prayer of St. Patrick

A St. Patrick’s Day Prayer

When I was growing up, I always thought St. Patrick's Day was about our family. Since my last name was Patrick, it just made sense.  It was years later that I realized Patrick was actually really his first name. I also later discovered that we are Scottish and not...

Newbie Pinterest Mistakes to Avoid

I'm one of those people where a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. I learn part way how something works and then I roar off on my own, figuring I can do it from here.  This is how it's been with my blog journey. Like everyone else who is trying to make...
What I learned from my pets

Three Things I Learned From My Cats

Some people are cat people and some are dog people.  I’m mostly a cat person. The only thing keeping me from becoming an old cat lady is… my family.  As it is, I have 5 cats and 1 dog.  Which is a lot for some people.  But my friend had 23 cats, which was, frankly,...
