A year of changes….

on Jan 5th 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s the start of 2015. I heard somewhere recently that “the year 2030 is as near to us as the year 2000″. Wow, food for thought, huh? Remember all that crazy Y2K stuff that ran rampant at the end of 1999? I dreamed when I was a girl that I would […]

Jesus bracelet

on Feb 13th 2013

My little friend Jesus that I met 3 years ago in Panajachel, Guatemala is still around, selling his hand-embroidered postcards and assorted bracelets. I love seeing his sweet smile and hearing his stories of what he’s been doing. He works very hard each day to make enough money to go to school – and he […]

I attended the funeral of an 18 year old this week. He was a local boy – a phenomenal baseball player who had just started college a few weeks ago on a baseball scholarship. He died in an automobile accident, on the way to a party with friends. As I stood outside the funeral home, […]

How time flies

on Jul 17th 2012

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted anything here. It’s not for lack of desire, believe me….more from lack of ability. Some of you are already aware of the wrist problem I’ve been having for many months. After much pain, I finally visited the doctor. An MRI revealed a torn TFCC (triangular […]

The following summer, right around the 4th of July, we went to visit my sister who had moved to Lexington from Cuba, where she’d been living with her husband and kids. As per usual, Cuba was experiencing some unrest at the time and military dependents were […]

Oh how He loves me

on Apr 14th 2012

I don’t know how He does it. There’s a LOT of bad stuff going on in the world and yet God still has time to answer my stupid prayers…. and with such a sense of humor too. He is ever so patient with me – when I ask for the same things over and over […]

Madrina, part 2

Santos and his teacher So after huffing and puffing up the hill to the home Santos lives in with his family, as I wrote about last week (or the week before!) – we finally arrived. Whew, not a moment too soon, lemme tell ya. I didn’t think I’d make it much further. In the small […]

Angel(a)

on Jan 13th 2012

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 […]
