Sometime this past November, I was looking around on the Mayan Families website, as I have been doing regularly since my trip to Guatemala in January of 2011. They offer so many ways to help: sponsoring a student for school, offering one-time medical help money, or food money for a particular family. The opportunity to […]

For what its worth

on Jan 30th 2012

My heart is near to exploding with a sincere humbleness – born of the opportunity to visit with such precious people as the Guatemalans. They are such a poor people – but oh so rich…. in warmth and generosity and kindness. It’s so hard to put into words…. Once again I return home feeling as […]

Today my sweet friend Angie (Angela) is celebrating her birthday in heaven! I still can’t believe she is gone from earth, after that tragic accident that killed her and her husband David on June 12th, 2010. She was a kind, sweet spirit that touched many, many lives. I pray for her kids all the time […]

I hope to see Jesus soon

on Jan 2nd 2012

Someday I do hope to see Jesus – my Lord and Savior. But not anytime soon, I hope. The Jesus I want to see soon is the young boy I met last year in Guatemala. You might remember the story I wrote about him here. I have thought of him and prayed for him so […]

All the Christmas decorations are put up for another year. The house is back to normal once again.  Today we ate a hearty meal of pork roast, cabbage and black eyed peas (blecht!). December always rushes in, on the heels of Thanksgiving, so full of anticipation and excitement as the promise of family time approaches […]

Dogs and Heaven

on Nov 9th 2011

My sister C has shared the past 9 years of her life with this sweet little guy, Murphy. He came into her life shortly after a divorce, when she was sad and stressed. He showered her with that wonderful unconditional love that only dogs can offer so selflessly. If you are a dog-lover, you know […]

Quick and easy

on Nov 6th 2011

I’ve been sewing quite a bit lately. Unfortunately, we keep our ironing board and iron upstairs in the master bedroom (because Mr. Lucky uses it DAILY) while my sewing machine is downstairs in the guest room. This means I am forever dragging the iron downstairs and laying a piece of cardboard with a folded sheet […]

T-shirts! T-shirts! Get your T-shirts here!

on Nov 4th 2011

I am making plans to go to Guatemala again in January 2012, just a mere 10 weeks from now. Once again, I’m taking orders for t-shirts that will help me raise funds for my trip. The shirts will be black with the writing in white except for the word LOVED – which will be in […]

Patience….. not patients

on Nov 3rd 2011

I was having a particularly bad day yesterday (if you didn’t notice by my post). I was definitely out of patience with so many things in my life. I went to bed very sad and discouraged. I slept poorly – which almost never happens to me. This morning, the first thing I saw when I […]
