God Hears and Sees You
on July 25th, 2021
As I visited my mom in the hospital, so many thoughts went through my mind. I replayed how she was both mom and dad to me during my short years on this journey called life. She said to me, “I feel so tired!” I told her, “Mom, you have been a blessing to so many people; you’ve been a great blessing to your family, a great blessing to your church family, and a great blessing to all those who have so...
Be a Conduit of Joy
on July 4th, 2021
Whenever I visited with my mom in another state, she would look at me and say, “You always have a smile.” I wish that over the many years everything has been smile-worthy, but not so. I have long since realized that a smile costs us nothing. It does not take dollars or cents to uplift someone else’s day despite how you may be feeling personally. Everyone, I am sure, have had good days, challenging...

Traveling gives you an opportunity to see various beautiful buildings designed with great creativity. As I look around at all the construction going up in communities and business sections of many cities, I notice that the buildings have different beautiful architectural lines.

I forgot that the city was coming by early one morning to sweep the leaves from our corner lot. I was snug in my bed ready to doze off w...
The Wealth of Silence
on June 6th, 2021
There are times we need to retrieve to a place called ‘SILENCE’. Silence from all the well-meaning people around you, silence from the responsibilities that are knocking at your mental and emotional door, silence from the hustle and bustle of everyday needs and request from others, maybe even those you love. Silence does not have an address, a cell number, or web site; it’s located in the heart of...
Help Is On The Way
on May 30th, 2021
Recently, my husband and I took on an insurmountable task of downloading a house in another state. One that would pull upon all our natural strength and grit. But I knew it had to be done and with God’s help it would be completed. It took us sixteen days to complete the job, but we accomplished our goal. I am not proud of saying halfway through the project a judgmental spirit on my part crept in. ...
