You Want Me To Do What?

It has been a while since I wrote on here. I started this new painting journey and it took me away for a bit. I am back and I am still painting. That has been both fun and scary. I try to relax when I create, otherwise, it becomes drudgery instead of joy. I wantContinue reading “You Want Me To Do What?”

Random Photos – Part VIII – MY Scottish Journey

If it weren’t for my son’s beautiful mind and determination we may not have made this journey to Scotland. He is presently finishing up his Masters program at the University of Edinburgh.

I never knew him but the few times she mentioned him it was always inContinue reading “The Journey Begins Part I My Scottish Journey”

Find Your Worship

I was struck deeply one day by a story I heard from a friend of mine.  It was about worship. I’m not talking about the act of worship, which I’m sure has different meanings to many of us.  Some think of the music portion of a church service or perhaps music that moves you deeply when alone with God.Continue reading “Find Your Worship”

Love Hurts

It’s been about three weeks since we moved into our new town and our new place that we call home.  It has taken me awhile to post with all the unpacking, cleaning and getting things into working condition. As I have posted before, I have the privilege of helping our youngest son and his lovelyContinue reading “Love Hurts”
