It was early in the morning and I sat in my cozy robe with my hot tea. I was eager to get back to my routine and quiet time after company and the holidays. Every year, I begin the year asking God what He has for me in the new year. As I prayed and listened, I felt like I heard two words, exp…

This past weekend I had the honor and privilege of providing the eulogy at my brother-in-law’s memorial service.  Tracy was only fifty-eight years old, but he had been sick for many years. At his service, I spoke about how he exemplified honor and integrity. As I reflect on those words today…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, whatever size of event it was for you this year. My house was the location for our small group of family.  We actually had more dogs, seven to be exact, than kids.

Fall is officially here, or at least in my mind it is. When the time “falls back,” I celebrate that extra hour all day long on Sunday. I enjoy looking at the clock (that hasn’t fallen back yet) and happily realize that I have an extra hour to get something done. My husband laughs at me and l…

In my time of social work and ministry for more than 36 years, it has been extremely evident that forgiveness is a big key to freedom in the lives of people. I’ve had a good life; however, life is challenging at times. Personally, I’ve been rejected, betrayed, been through verbal abuse, misu…

My husband has work in the Uvalde area and this time of year, I help him with our business. I love working out, and on September 11, attended Shotgun CrossFit. We did a very difficult workout to commemorate 911. I was trying hard to keep up as I’m one of the oldest in the class.

Welcome to Fall! The last few days of cooler weather has certainly gotten me in the mood for warmer clothes, pumpkin and spice smells, and some local high school football. But then, just like normal in Texas, it’s in the 90s again. Crazy weather.
