Believe

Posted by & filed under faith, my life.

This song was sung on American idol tonight. This is the original duet version with Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. It seemed so appropriate for a time when in the midst of great pain, we are seeing miracles of love. It also echos what I learned earlier in my life. Something I want to share… Read more »

The Boston Marathon I know

Posted by & filed under my life.

When I think of The Boston marathon, I think of my sister-in-law Laurel, and going into Boston to her 8th floor apartment in Kenmore square and watching people approaching the finish line. Sometimes watching from her balcony, sometimes going down to the street for awhile to cheer on the runners. It was nice with the… Read more »

My bucket list

Posted by & filed under my life.

I sure was writing a lot more earlier this year. Now I seem to have gone on a knitting spree. Seriously, there is not enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. And I’m not talking chore type things. Those are always piling up on me. I’m talking about fun, creative… Read more »

I’m in love

Posted by & filed under my life.

Valentine’s day seems to be a good day to make this confession. I just fell in love. With these knitting needles: I just knit most of a scarf on these blunt plastic things: They were the only needles available in size 15 at the craft store. They worked, but it was a struggle sometimes to… Read more »

Let your light shine before men

Posted by & filed under my life.

I met a bright light in the airport today, as I got stranded for the day waiting for my evening flight. He’d been waiting since Friday. Chose not to cut his Disney vacation with his small son short by catching an earlier Thursday flight, as the airline recommended. He was on a standby list and… Read more »

The Song in Your Heart

Posted by & filed under my life.

At the beginning of the year, when Andy and I went on a mini-ski vacation, we walked into a store and I saw this magnet: And my eyes filled up with tears. It was like this magnet was speaking words right to my soul. I bought it. It’s on my refrigerator. Today, I stumbled across… Read more »

Do Not Disturb

Posted by & filed under my life.

There is nothing pressing on the agenda. Sure, lots of things I could be doing. We ran the dogs this morning. So that is done. Now I am sitting on my couch, on the end near the fire in the wood stove, which is roaring away. A candle is lit on the table beside me…. Read more »

A Holy Name

Posted by & filed under faith, my life.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6 Jesus: “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger.” – John… Read more »

Create!

Posted by & filed under my life.

Creating. It’s what drives me. Nothing else is as deep a part of who I am. It’s why the business machine drags me down. Achieve these goals! Use this piece of software! Attend these meetings! Work within these limitations! It’s all so unbelievably stifling. Just leave me alone and let me create. Go away you… Read more »

Simplify

Posted by & filed under my life.

I don’t really have a new year’s resolution, except that i’m continuing to work on simplifying my life…or in other words, getting my act together – focusing on the essentials and letting other things go and not letting the uninvited in to take away precious time. Today I took the first step and spent all… Read more »
