A few days ago I ran a few errands that were necessary, like picking up my daughter’s meds at the pharmacy and buying a few groceries. I left the car running when I went into the grocery store, and when I came back out, I got in and sat down in the driver’s seat. My… Read More Day 151- Thankful for routine and for new discoveries
Ever since I can remember, I’ve wanted to discover things on my own. When I was a child, I took apart 2 music boxes to see how they worked, and maybe a windup clock as well.

In June 2018 God blessed me with a new car. I really liked the old car; it fit like a glove, and I was comfortable with it. I wrote about that Here!

“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness. That my soul may sing praise to you and not be silent.” Psalm 30:11,12 I find it interesting how the psalmist refers to mourning and gladness as things we are clothed with. It looks to me… Read More Day 33 – Thankful for A Different Sort of Clothing

Today my daughter and I are on the train, traveling across a lot of flat farm country on our way to visit my sister and her family and my mom and dad, who live with them now. We’ve had some delays, and right now are stopped by a field of corn. We’re going again! Yay!… Read More Train trip meditations
I grew up going to Sunday School and memorizing Bible verses. Perhaps many of you can relate. And when I learned each verse, I understood it with a child’s understanding. As I got older, I made the mistake of thinking that I understood various verses without digging more in depth to see if there was… Read More What is the Beginning of Wisdom?
