Richer Than We Think

Richer Than We Think

  It was a fun time. My son and granddaughter fixed Mother’s Day lunch for all of us. Spaghetti, hot rolls, salad, dessert, served up with a big dash of caring. I loved it! These times of togetherness are priceless. I couldn’t put a monetary value on them. I’m rich in having my family around […]

That Special Person

A renowned evangelist once said that within each person is a God-shaped space. Although we may try to fill that space with other things, nothing but God brings satisfaction.  I believe the same is true of mothers. A mother is the person who gives birth to a child or adopts the child and loves her as her own.

I love making small books. For years, I’ve kept a little notebook with Scripture, poetry, my illustrations, things that brighten the day and will maybe, someday, be meaningful to my grandchildren. In this uncertain time, I recommend it for you too, as a way to keep going and inject hope into the day. This morning, […]
