In our entry hall we have a grandfather clock that we love.  Dick and I purchased it for Valentine’s Day over 30 years ago.  For the most part we don’t have any problems with the clock…but a couple of times over the years we have had to take it to a ‘clock expert’ to work on the heart and soul of the clock.  Usually all we have to do is wind it often & adjust the settings occasionally.  But, when it is overhauled More


The Source of our Love

Do you remember falling in love?  The Butterflies?  The Nervous Feeling?  The Continual Happiness?  The Thoughts of your New Found Love?  Now, do you remember that fading???  Real love is so much more than the superficial feelings we have when we first fell in love.  Love truly does grow and deepen as we spend more time and discover each other on a deeper level.  Today I want to visit about More

Dear Tech Support

I love technology, but I really do not understand technology.  I so depend on my husband and kids to keep me headed in the right direction:)  Although it may not seem like this is the second part of my blog on More

Opening The Door

My husband has been opening the car door a lot for me lately and I think that is really sweet.  Even when it is so darn cold outside he is opening my door.  I know this is a conscience effort on his part to honor me and to show his love for me.  So, the other day when we were running errands I asked him how he feels he shows love to to others.  It was a really simple answer, not one that I could have answered in such few words.  More

Life and Love

Life-and-Love-by-Holley-Gerth-300x300I have recently started following Holley Gerth and I love, love her style, her encouragement and her daily blog.  Since we are writing about love this month, I wanted to share this image recently posted by Holley.  I truly believe God has created us to share love as well as receive it.  God is Love and we are created in His image.  So join me this month in being intentional in your love.  How do you share it in your life?


As young mothers we often feel the need for some “alone” time, time to relax, unwind, spend a few minutes focusing on ourselves and our own needs.  Selfish?  I really don’t think so because those times can be times of renewal and re-energizing.  I, on the other hand, don’t need alone time from raising children, but as an introvert I need some More


“The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.” Madeleine L’Engle

I love this quote.  We have a very special birthday in our family later this month.  It’s one of those birthday’s that end with a zero, you know, one of the “Big Ones”.  The special day just happens to belong to More

A Beautiful Autumn in Austin…Part 2

I just have to follow-up on yesterday’s post.  I had the opportunity to go to Austin a few days in November and babysit my two grandchildren.  It was so fun and I experienced first had the colorful trees.  We live a little north of Dallas and we too had an unusually beautiful fall.  It was just about as pretty as it gets for Texas.  Anyway, while in Austin, I took a few adorable pictures of my grandchildren playing in the leaves and I just had to share them. enjoy!

IMG_4424 We went on a very impromptu trip to San Antonio the day after Christmas.  Our daughter, Holly, and her husband thought it would be fun to take their two kids and for us all to go spend the night and enjoy the River Walk, the Mexican Market, More

The Palm of my Hand

I recently had a kitchen accident that required a visit to Care Now for five stitches on the palm of my left hand. So now, every time I glance at my palm I see  the new scar.  In time it will fade, but I was recently reminded of how God’s love for me will never fade.  When I look at my palm, I am reminded of a painful experience, but I like to think when Jesus looks at His palms, He not only sees pain, He also sees sacrifice and love…the sacrifice and love He gave to me on the cross.  My sweet daughter recently gave me a wonderful gift as a thank you for keeping her children so she and her husband could get away.  I was delighted that it was More
