Seeking Contentment

Seeking Contentment

  Monday started out like most other school days.  Drink some coffee, help the kids get out the door for school, kiss my husband goodbye as he heads off to work, and then get ready for the gym. And that's when it hit me...not like a whisper tickling at the edge of my senses. No, [...]

Thursday Doors – The Red Door

Last week was my first week participating in Thursday doors.  While I saw many interesting doors over the course of week, timing or weather prevented my capturing of them.  I'm hoping to get back to them and find some new ones in the upcoming week.

It caught my eye because most of the doors are plain and nondescript on this particular alleyway. It is a side entry door to the Agnew seed shop [...]

Saying Goodbye

      I recently found the Word Press weekly photo challenge and have really enjoyed using it as a jumping off point for my thoughts.  I have also enjoyed reading other peoples takes on the themes.

Marriage – Our Future

  Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.  Your people will be my people and your God my God -Ruth 1:16 17 years ago, I stood before family friends, and God and spoke those words as part of my vows. A few months prior I had penned these words. [...]
