I sat in the car for a few moments before starting the engine, gathering my thoughts. I could literally feel my mind racing, like it actually had a heart beat and I started to laugh. I laughed and laughed. I must have looked like a loon to anyone driving by. You see I was laughing […]

One of my favorite verses from the bible is from Psalm 118:24:  This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Finding “Me” in a Photo

I have always been fascinated with photography.  Oh, not in a way that I ever wanted to pursue any sort of career with it.  No, I’ll gladly leave that pursuit to my very talented brother and sister-in-law who have spent decades mastering not only a variety of camera lens and filters to achieve a perfect […]

There is good in the weeds! I truly believe in the healing power of positivity not only to heal us physically and emotionally, but to inspire us to live our lives seeking not what is wrong, but what is right!    That’s challenging because humans are curious creatures and it is our curiosity that pushes […]
