On this beautiful- gift-of-a- morning in Colorado, and keeping with my “no dairy, no sugar” fast, I enjoyed a breakfast of scrambled eggs, grits and bacon. But what I’ve enjoyed the most is spending time with precious granddaughters. They provide hours of fun and making sure I sleep well at night 😉 - But not … Continue reading A Reward From Him
Grabbed a banana this morning and headed out the door! Who else flys to Colorado to see an eye specialist?! Not exactly what I had planned but so thankful to get answers to the issues that have flared up recently besides old ones that had no answer. The mind of man plans his way, But … Continue reading Ordered Steps!
Here I am. My alarm woke me at 3 a.m. And now I sit sipping on a hot “unsweetened” earl grey tea waiting for my flight ✈️ To be honest with you: I really am just tolerating the tea, especially without sweetener.

I love juicing, not … Continue reading Masterpiece

For instance, there are two times a deer develops an insatiable thirst for water—when fleeing from danger and when withstanding an opponent in combat.

During the last two months of 2020 and the first two months of 2021, I was away more than I was home. Saying goodbye to my sister-in-law was an experience I did not handle well. Having peace through the sorrow of her death (since I knew she was with Jesus in heaven) was one thing … Continue reading One Slice!
The sign flashing “HOT” meant only one thing, a delightful treat just waiting for me to indulge! My love affair with glazed Krispy Kreme Doughnuts was serious. There was a time I could devour half a dozen without a thought to self-control or health issues ever being a problem. Now, as I work toward a … Continue reading Prayerfully Sweet
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power may be of God and not from ourselves."2 Corinthians 4:7, NASB If I just try to muster up the strength I will fail every time, but thankfully, the power of God comes flooding in as I open my Bible and … Continue reading It’s A New Dawn; It’s A New Day!
