23 YEARS AND COUNTING…

On Sunday, we celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary!  Twenty three years of laughter and tears.  Twenty three years of blessings, happiness and contentment.  Marriage has been good to me and for me.  I love this man and I am confident in his love for me.  I am confident not so much in him though, but more so, in the God, in him.  I know he will always […]

RECENT TRAVELS

When I was a little girl, our family would attend a quarterly gathering of ECWI (Evangelical Churches of the West Indies) members called a Rally. The churches were located around the island, and each “rally” was held at a different venue.  At the time, there were only three churches that could comfortably hold a group […]

TO SUBMIT, OR NOT TO SUBMIT?

An old adage goes like this: ‘a man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still!’ I hate to admit that as a child I had a slight (very slight) problem with authority. I disliked being told what to do.  I had to know what everyone else was doing first and if I […]

DO GOOD PEOPLE EXIST?

Well… what you think? Do good people really exist?  It has been said, ‘we became what we habitually do’!  In other words, our constant, habitual actions define our character. We’ve heard it said about people, perhaps we even think it of ourselves. I must admit, I used to think so, too.   As a matter, I […]

DEAR CLEO…

Dear Cleo, I am sitting here, in my favorite space, listening to the birds and the noise of the early morning commute, in the distance. The rain has subsided for the moment but may too soon, return.  Wow! Nineteen already!  How quickly the years have flown by.  I remember like it was yesterday, the doctors […]

PERFECT PARENTING!

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day.  During the service, our pastor said no mother is perfect. Never a truer statement has been said! What qualities then should a perfect parent possess? I asked the girls to describe their perfect parent,  Anna said I was her perfect parent (such a sweet girl), Cleo (of course) gave some […]

REFLECTIONS OF THE PAST

The month of December is a great time to reflect on the past eleven months.  This year has gone by so quickly.  Time has simply flown!  Sometimes, because of the busyness in our days, remembering the events of just last month is impossible.  But with our heads down, moving from one event or activity to […]

SWEET SIXTEEN! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANNA

Where did the time go? Sixteen already!  I still cannot believe it.  I blinked and this happened.  We thank God for you, Anna. I know I speak for your daddy also, when I say ‘we’.   You kept us on our knees; prone to fall, prone to be sick, least aware of her environment, 😍 and […]

LAST NOD TO SUMMER

Summer is like the ‘in between’ isn’t it?  It comes after spring, which heralds new life; but comes before fall, which brings with it, color and what some might consider bearable temperatures.  I wonder if summer had a voice what she would say.  On that note, what do we think about the weather being referred […]
