Yes…it is spring again. A renewal of life. It is just around the corner…. Well, if you feel like that proverbial corner is about a mile away – you’re not alone. Here in the middle of the country, the days are still topsy-turvey. One day 70, the next 30…..COME ON! I know they say it’s Missouri….but really??? I seriously need to see the SUN. Seriously. It seems as if the proverbial darkness outside is creeping underneath the door frames and silently swallowing up the light within. Yes, it has been a long winter….one that just doesn’t want...

A Breath of Fresh Air

Posted by on Mar 6, 2018 | 0 comments

Yesterday … I posted about this nagging cough I’ve had for over 2 years on FB…. and the responses were amazing! Thank you all for your wonderful and helpful suggestions. After pondering everything and responding to a couple of kind and sweet people that reached out privately to me…. here is where I’m at. KISS. I thought some of you that have experienced something like this (no matter if it’s a cough or other dis-ease) might want to follow along or even join me. Yep….I’m going to go back to KEEP IT SIMPLE SISTER. One of my long time FB sweet...

One more day…

But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:33-34(ASV) Well, there you have it. Not much more to say is there? Maybe it’s just because time is overtaking my life. Maybe it’s just because I’m on the other side of the proverbial ‘hill’. Maybe it’s just because I’ve learned that we have no control over anything outside our own influence. Maybe I’m just...

Lessons in Nature

Posted by on Feb 2, 2018 | 3 comments

Sometimes our problems seem to overwhelm us, and wrap us in a tangled web of emotional duress. Sometimes the inner voices begin to argue with each other and chatter endlessly until the ‘you‘ inside wants to scream STOP! And sometimes, you retreat to somewhere deep within and block everything out refusing to come out and face the situation. Yep..that’s kinda where I’ve been for the last 2 weeks….going from one end of the field to another and then back to number one. But a little bird reminded me of who I am. You heard me … a little bird. She arrived...

The Thoughts Within…..

Posted by on Jan 26, 2018 | 0 comments

The thoughts swirling around within…. What do I mean? Well, it’s been a time of reflection….within. It seems always to be a time of reflection doesn’t it? I mean, after all, we are constantly seeking, constantly desiring this or that, driving to be better or get it together or whatever. So all of us, every day, whether you know it or not are in a deep state of a time of reflection. You can be conscious of it – or not. So many things have happened to me in the last month it is hard to grasp. Maybe writing them down will help sort out some of the feelings and...

The Blanketed Dream

Posted by on Jan 26, 2018 | 2 comments

At bible study last week, we entered into one of our many rabbit trails. Thank goodness for rabbit trails! As we shared around the table and concerns came and went within the group – someone said that my ‘coughing’ (a 2 1/2 yr problem) might be a symptom related to ‘grief’ and reminded me that she had told me such a year ago. Really, I thought to myself. I didn’t remember that, but it did stick with me as my mind delved into the memory banks of my psyche as I tried to pull things forth to remember what she had said. Nothing came up. That night it was still on my mind and as I laid down to go...
