Our weather has been in a see-saw pattern the past few weeks. Beautiful, cool, autumn-like days swoop in, making everyone smile, and then suddenly summer is back, with highs in the 90's, sticky air, and sneaky mosquitoes. But at least we're getting the promise of autumn and a reprieve from the true summer days of triple digit temps. October has... Continue reading

Thirty-six years ago tonight, I had no idea my life was about to veer onto a drastically different course when I decided to go out dancing alone. That's when I first met Tom. Looking back, it's easy to see God's hand in the whole thing, but I was just going on 'gut' feelings. Being an agnostic at the time, I... Continue reading

Thank you, Lisa! It was a good week, but I'm wondering where it went! I hope you had a wonderful week yourself. xoxo

I am totally loony over lunar stuff. This one was right before sunrise, just hanging over the horizon, huge and bright. It dropped like a rock right after I saw it. It always impresses me to see how fast it disappears, reminding me how fast this globe is spinning!

Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragonfly Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky. ~Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Silent Noon This morning as Belle and I finished our walk, a dragonfly buzzed close, circling and circling. It even hovered about a foot from me for a few seconds, providing me a good look at its glimmering green and turquoise... Continue reading

Thank you, Otto. My friends and family in Houston have been stuck in a nightmarish situation the past few days - and after the water subsides there will be more challenges. It's heartbreaking, but they are resilient and it's awesome to see everyone pulling together to help and serve.

Keep praying for those in Houston! My sister said they've heard tomorrow may be bad again. The clouds have blown out of here, so I'm hopeful Harvey keeps moving east. I'm already praying for Louisiana.

I am so grateful for them and the work they do!

I watched the coverage on the news and could tell how those who viewed the total eclipse were affected by the experience. It's going to be about an hour north of us - I plan to be there! Alas, the flooding is really bad east of us and in parts of Houston. And despite warning, it appears a lot of people didn't evacuate the coast. Sigh.

Me, too, but please keep those on the coast in your thoughts and prayers! And even those just east of us - lots of flooding!

I think so, too!

Name the season’s first hurricane Zelda and fool Mother Nature into calling it a year. ~Robert Brault Throughout the night I woke several times to the sound of heavy rain outside my window. And this afternoon on my back deck, I watched as the wind swooped hard through the hollow every few minutes, tickling the treetops, making them bend and... Continue reading

"When you're down and troubled, and you need a helping hand... and nothing, nothing is going right..." Year ago, I used to cover for our church secretary when she had to be out of the office. One of the best, but still toughest, parts of the job was answering those calls from people who needed help...with electric bills, rent, doctor's... Continue reading
