I know you’re wondering what snails have to do with running. Let me tell you about these cute, little, harmless-looking moon snails. Moon snails seek out clams and other similar ocean animals, drill a hole in the shell, and slurp out the insides. Still think they’re cute? Maybe cool, but I think they’ve lost the “cute” factor for me! Continue reading Run!
What do you think of when you hear the word “majesty”?
I think of the line “for purple mountain majesties” from America the Beautiful written by Katherine Lee Bates. Thank you to my friend, Luke Eskelund, who posted this picture while traveling in Norway last week! Now that is a majestic scene!
I also think eagles soaring high above us on thermals are majestic.
Have you come up with anything else paired with “majestic”? Continue reading Fearfully Majestic
Last year, my husband decided he wanted to expand his garden. To increase the area receiving direct sunshine, he hired someone to cut down four trees beside our house. This is what all four of them looked like last year. They’re all still out there, taller than I am! But they don’t all look like this anymore. One of them has kept right on growing–maybe not up, but out! I decided to be adventurous and climb on top of it, and show you just how green it is. Continue reading Keep Growing!
I grew up in a family, both immediate and extended, that loves to sing. We had it all covered–soprano, alto, tenor and bass–and the harmony to bring it all together! Since we loved to sing, I also grew up in the church choir. I still love to sing! You won’t find me making any recordings, that’s for sure, but singing with a bunch of other people just brings me joy.
David loved to sing, too… Continue reading Join the Chorus!
Just look at the cute little cherry tomato blossoms, promising nice, juicy additions to my salad bowl in a few weeks. Wait a second, what’s that I see down below?? Continue reading Lose Those Suckers!
A tree is a tree is a tree…how can you tell?
I took all of these pictures at my husband’s softball game a few weeks ago. All trees, although they all look completely different! Tall, short, spindly, bushy, green leaves, red leaves, needles, straight limbs, convoluted limbs…but all definitely trees. What makes a tree a tree? Continue reading Captivating Trees
Here you are!
You believe in God, you believe that His Son, Jesus, came to die for your sins, and hopefully you are living “a life worthy of the calling you have received” (Ephesians 4:1). In living to please God and allowing the fruit of the Spirit to grow (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control~~Galatians 5:22-23), you become inviting to others who may be searching for meaning in this life. But you are not meant to be a lone ranger. Continue reading One Alone, or One of Many?
