Belonging to God

Last night a young woman I know sent me some photos of her baby getting Baptized. Of course they were adorable. Later I realized it was Holy Trinity Sunday. In the Gospel reading, Jesus told His disciples “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, […]

Year Anniversary Visit

Today we had a wonderful visit with my nephew and his wife. It is the first time we have seen them together since they were married exactly 1 year ago. As we talked about the past year of pandemic, they noticed what a unique time it was. The first celebration of their marriage was with […]

Lemon Bars

The other day my mom went through her old recipe box. I suggested she find one that we could make. She chose lemon bars so I got all the ingredients. We made them this evening. It has been a while since we baked together, and my mom said she doesn’t even know the last time […]

What’s Around the Bend

This morning as I was driving to pick up groceries, I came to the familiar blind corner. I have seen people fly around the corner without realizing there is a traffic light up ahead. As I cautiously entered the bend, the Christian music station that I was listening to played, “Forever On Your Side”, by […]

Visiting Nature

Today we decided to go out and enjoy the gorgeous day. We headed to a nature center I had visited last year. We started inside the building that was full of things to see, touch and hear. The tactile exhibits were fun and engaging. From there we followed a short paved trail with signs identifying […]

Watching Tess

My brother put his dog in doggie daycare today as he came for a visit. There was a camera in the area so you could log in and see what was going on. We checked in on her often and watched her play with the other dogs. Later, she was so tired she plopped down […]

Hoping to See

My mom has been struggling to read her piano music for a while now. She got new glasses a couple years ago, but the prescription was not correct. We were able to visit the optometrist today who was super nice and got her set up for new glasses. We’re hoping she will be able to […]

Number 6:24-26

Tonight was my last Bible class of the year. The instructor’s final prayer was Numbers 6:24-26, “The LORD bless you and keep you! The LORD let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you! The LORD look upon you kindly and give you peace!” These were the words from the song we sang […]

Great Family Get Together

I was happy to get to church again this morning and bring Communion home for my parents. After our little service, my mom hopped on her piano to play, “The Lord Bless You and Keep You”, which was in her mind. Then we had a great family get together including my two sons, two sisters, […]

Exciting Possibility

My son from the east coast flew out for a long weekend and came for a visit today. It was wonderful to see him in person and give him a big real hug. While he’s here, he will be looking for homes and meeting with a potential employer. He and his family are hoping to […]
