Potpourri and Hope

Potpourri and Hope

During the past few weeks, my friend April White and I have been busy launching our book Destination Hope: A Travel Companion When Life Falls Apart. It's been busy, fun, encouraging, and yes, exhausting. April and I also accepted writing invitations on other blogs. So this week, as I  take a breath, I'll offer you a potpourri of hope-filled...

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..

What’s Your Go-to in Tough Times? Leaning on God’s Promises to Recharge

Last week, one of my electronic games didn’t work. Despite recharging the batteries, one click to begin a game proved they did not come to life. Two reasons surfaced: the batteries were dead, and they were not rechargeable. No matter how long I left them in the charger, they would remain useless. That I learned from my grandson. He didn’t...

Will You Promise? Hope You Can Count On

Will You Promise? Hope You Can Count On

After a recent visit from grands, I thought about how different childhood is today from my days as a Mom of girls.. Reminiscing about my daughters growing up and outside summer play, led me to images of biking with friends and picnicking in the nearby gazebo. As little girls, they also had clapping games, like “Miss Mary Mack”.  I heard it...
