Mercy and Hope

I saw a quote today on social media that touched my heart. The problem is, I can’t remember the whole thing and haven’t been able to find it again. However, the part that I do remember has popped in my head over and over today – show mercy today and have hope in tomorrow. I […]

Memory and Reminder

A friend sent me a message today of a plaque he saw at the store. It said, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. ” Proverbs 3:5-6. It not only brought back wonderful memories of […]

Reached a Milestone

A couple of days ago, my good friend turned 60 years old. Instead of being upset about it, she was excited that she made it to the milestone. We got together today. The weather was favorable, so we went to the park, took a nice walk, and sat in the sun for a while. It […]

Outside Communicating

There was a lot of outside communication going on here today. My mom had her online exercise class this morning. Part of the class was working on cognition. Today this was done through artwork. One of the leaders gave the group step by step instructions on what shape to draw where on a piece of […]

How to Wait

In studying the prophets, there are many exhortations about the demise of those not following God. At the same time, there is encouragement for the righteous. There is hope for those who walk by faith. Today I read a meditation that focused on the same topic. It quoted Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is the realization of […]

Little Less Labor

Old Books

Today we discovered some very old books that my dad purchased from the library. They were bound copies of magazines – most over 100 years old. My dad actually used some of them as references when he was writing his college textbook on space. We brought a couple of them down from their place at […]

Surprise Treat

I received a call from one of the neighbors today. She makes amazing Irish soda bread that she shares with people, typically those going through a tough time. She brought some over last year when my dad came home after the stroke. When she called, she said she was going out and wanted to stop […]

About Time

When I went to my aqua aerobics class, we would have a “Theme of the Week”. The instructor would give us a topic and we would discuss it while exercising in the pool. Of course, we haven’t met in the gym for almost a year. But people are still able to stay in touch via […]

A Happy V-Day

We have been excitedly waiting for this day for a couple of weeks. This afternoon my parents and I headed over to the local hospital for their coronavirus vaccinations. After check-in, we walked into the conference room converted into a clinic. We were greeted by a friendly nurse who took each parent right over to […]
