Face of the Father

Over the long weekend my family decided to drive up and see other family in a nearby town. While there we grilled out, walked the shore of the lake and decided to drive a little further out and hike the gloss mountains. My husband and I grew up in the small town and surrounding countryside.… Continue reading Face of the Father

Forward Never Back

FORWARD. Arrows are released to fly forward toward the bullseye. Runners advance to the finish line forward. The battle of an army is won advancing forward toward the enemy. The waves of the sea change the shore by breaking forward onto the sand. We even spring forward from a long winter. Nothing is usually gained… Continue reading Forward Never Back

Anticipation

ANTICIPATE. Anticipation. To Anticipate. Looking forward to. A joyful longing for. Hopeful expectation. Waiting with baited…baded…bated (pick one) breath.

A Beautiful Life

I have a pillow on my bed that reads “Life is Beautiful”. I bought it as a reminder to appreciate the life I have and also to consider even the most difficult parts beautiful. This morning as I made my bed after a fitful nights sleep I contemplated the saying and wondered aloud if I have indeed found life to be beautiful. I came to this conclusion.

Look Closer

I look around our yard and see all of the green. Spring and summer are my favorite times of the year. I love the gentle breeze, the tinkling of the wind chimes, the bird as they sing songs of renewal; the soft wrestling of the new leaves in the trees as a fresh wind blows… Continue reading Look Closer

Quick trips to spend time with out of state family, closing a business and purging inventory, home repairs, surgeries, moving the oldest daughter home for her last year (clinicals) of school, summer classes and an increase in clients just to name a few things… Continue reading The Night Shade Among Us

Smallness in shape yet hopeful, breaking through the suffocating blackness. A lifeline. A position to take hold of; focus on, steady ones course by.… Continue reading The Light in the Darkness
