DO YOU SEE IT?

Hey friends, how are you today? Guess what?? Our noisy neighbors, the very loud cicadas have finally decided to grace us with their presence; summer has arrived, and it’s here to stay. Although, I must admit the temperatures have been heralding the arrival of summer for a while now.  Yesterday’s temperature was a whopping 99°; as…

DEFINITION OF LOVE

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your weekend? We’ve been good over here, in my neck of the woods, although I was a bit under the weather on Friday.  I feel much better now, thank the Lord. I don’t like to feel ill. Huh! It just occurred to me, that I really do not…

ARE YOU MY ENEMY?

Hey friends, How are you doing? We’ve enjoyed beautiful weather, here, in our neck of the woods.  In previous years, we would have perhaps complained that it’s a bit hot (our temperatures have been in the 80°(s) and 90°(s).   This year though, there has been a significant lack of complaint, more just gratefulness for warm weather,…

Warm weather has finally come to our neighborhood, thank You, Lord.  Sunshine has returned and brought warmth with it.  The birds and the squirrels vie for space on the trees, especially on those that are near full blossom.  The squirrels disdainfully glare at the trees that still pretend to be dead.  I…

SAVE THE MOTHERS

Hello friends, how are you today? Today I found myself singing this song, sung by ‘Mr. Rogers’ on the television show by the same name, “it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, could you be mine?” Some days, songs wander into my head without any warning.  It is a beautiful day though; the sun is out,…

ANIMOSITY… ANTAGONISM… ANGER…

Hey friends, how are you today? My theme for the past week is found in Psalm 118:24. And I quote, “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it”.   Lately,  I’ve had to remind myself of this verse, because our weather has been terrible.  Our average temperature has not…

HABITS vs. INTENTIONALITY

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your weekend? Spring continues to ‘spring’ in our neck of the woods although it’s still a bit chilly.  The neighbor’s yard is filled with the vibrant colors of yellows, whites, and purples of the tulips as they bloom.   The squirrels are busy as they ‘squirrel’ away their stash…

EMBRACE THE CHANGE

Hey friends, how are you doing? Really, how are you?  How was your week? Our weather has been very topsy turvy this week.  We’ve had warm days and cooler days, sunshine and clouds, rain and now snow is in the forecast, all in one week.  Although our God does not change, He is indeed the never-changing God, yet…
