New Year ~ New Plans

New Year ~ New Plans

Happy New Year! Did you stare incredulously at 2022 when you turned the calendar page or watched the ball drop at midnight? My conversations with friends who have lived through several decades asked the same question, “Where has time gone?” The answer: same place it always has, starting at midnight and ending on the same, day after day. It’s...

Sustaining Personal Peace This Season

Sustaining Personal Peace This Season

Are you running from one activity to the next and adding to your To Do list rather than checking things off?  Does your impatience soar while you wait in a supermarket line or try to catch a sale that expires in minutes on a merchant’s online site?  Maybe you’ve found yourself in the wrong lane during heavy traffic.

A Solution or a Remedy?

A Solution or a Remedy?

We headed up the mountains looking forward to changes in color along the highway. Our plan included a stop at a waterfall, lunch, and finding pumpkins.

Looking for Hope and a Sigh of Relief?

Looking for Hope and a Sigh of Relief?

TV and social media ads offer relief from pounding headaches and seasonal allergies. After one or more doses of the perfect capsule or tablet, the ache and congestion resolve. Maybe you’re not among those who need those remedies, but don’t we all hope for relief from other problems? In current world affairs, we hope to tune into news or open...

Packing Promises To Move Forward in Hope

Packing Promises To Move Forward in Hope

Three lanes reduced to two; construction; a disabled vehicle. How often have we met backed up traffic? Losing time isn’t on our agenda. Traffic delays are among the mild unexpected events we experience, yet they interrupt plans and send us into negative attitudes.. Last time we met here, we discussed one way we prepare for unexpected life...

Fall Brings the Promise of Change

Fall Brings the Promise of Change

Today, I am pleased to offer this page to Christine Boatwright  who shares, as part of our series on God's promises, what the promise of Fall could mean to us. Christine and I met through our Word Weavers Upstate chapter where we exchange our writing for critique. But we don't stop there. We've also enjoyed yummy lunches when we explore new...
