Powering Through

One summer, my husband I bought a Kayak. I’d done a lot of research and found an inflatable one with excellent reviews that fit our budget and space constraints. We had both canoed before, and Jack had once owned a sailboat. A kayak is a little different, and an inflatable differs from a hard body….

The Truth about Faith

I have a little surprise for all of you. This week the post is from a bright young man in our congregation, Yuri Weisberger. When I heard this message, I had to share it with all of you. If you like it, be sure to comment so we can encourage his writing gift. What is…

The Pear Tree

When my daughter was young, we lived on a small quiet farm that was nothing more that a house and some overfull storage barns on about seventy acres of land. The tiny white house stood back from a busy highway the length of a football field. After moving in, I noticed an apple tree at…

And Now, Over to You

So I bet you’ve been coming here for a while, at least long enough to know that what I’m going to do next, I have never done before.  And that is, opening up the floor so we can all hear from you! I would love to hear your best positivity story and I think our…

When You Sing

As a gift, I received from my daughter a little book called, What I Love About Mom.  They set up a sentence and she had to fill in the blanks.I had a good chuckle over  a few of them –If you were a scent, you’d be Warm Ocean Breeze—but one of her responses took my…

The Tale of Two Dogs

Once upon a time there were two dogs. One dog was small, super friendly, but very sick. The other was bigger, more guarded and very old. Both dogs needed to take medication twice a day which was fine, until the dog owners needed to go out of town for the weekend. Soon, they found a…

Remember Where You Came From

Some of the simplest people have accomplished the most amazing feats. They were just people, like you and me. They started out tiny and helpless and knowing nothing at all. Clean slate.
