The month is entering double digit days. I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost here! This year we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving with both our families on separate days, which means two meals. And I won’t be too full from one to deserve the next. There are two days between the two: one is on Thursday, the other… Read More Thankfully, Continued

The early snow in Columbia, a few hours south of us, broke… Read More 30 Days of Gratitude: Days 1-3
I have been silent this summer. Partly because of increased work responsibilities, partly because of disinterest and the other part because I have been keeping my thoughts to myself. Mulling over things, reminiscing, remembering. Working out and cleaning out, and putting away. Don’t we all do that as season’s change? Clean up and pack up… Read More September’s closing
I absolutely love daylilies! These beautiful flowers bloom for a day; a glorious, perfect blossom for one day. They get one day to be their best!

God is a great God. What He says He will do. He does. Period. How about He answered the prayer my husband and I have been praying since we first knew that we were going to spend our life together? He did. He answered that prayer the very next day after showing us the rainbows.… Read More His Promises Fulfilled
Waiting is hard. It doesn’t matter what you are waiting for but if you’ve sat and watched the clock, or you’ve been living with an unresolved prayer request, learning to wait is not an easy task. I think the best thing to remember is to keep the faith. It reminds me of that song: “Don’t… Read More Waiting
We did it! Here we are, the hubby and me. Feb. 16, 2013 was a perfect day. It was freezing, raining, windy with a prediction of snow flurries in south Georgia, and perfect for our Winter Wonderland Sweetheart theme. It even snowed in his South Carolina hometown! Our marriage is new and our wedding a… Read More We’re marrieds!
