A New Year with Experience

What do you think? Do I leave the year behind, rush headlong into an uncertain future, or ponder the past and see how it applies. Like so many of us, year 2020 has switched up my perspective. It is the year when it fell apart. When things didn’t work out as planned.

A Merry Christmas from Florida

Yes, the mountain girl went to the beach yesterday, Christmas Eve, and that is Florida ‘snow’ that you see on the water. A cold front moved through SoFlo* this morning. The high yesterday was eighty degrees with winds, cloudy skies and a chance of ‘snow.’ As I write this, the temperature outside is fifty-five degrees. We expect the low tonight to be forty-two degrees. I’d better cover the plants! BRR! {Guffaw!} This is as close to a White Christmas as we get. Can you see the whitecaps on the Atlantic?

Cherish the Elders

Happy Grandparents Day!  I wouldn’t have remembered it yesterday if not for my Parish Priest’s reminder.  It is easy to forget it in the myriad of days dedicated to something or another in the United States. However, it got me thinking… What has God got to say about our grandparents and elders?

I have been avoiding this post for about two weeks.  This is something I did not want to believe; yet the Lord in His infinite patience taught me I must let go of a false belief.  I don’t want to think my grandmother could have been off track, but… maybe? Continue reading “Unconditional?”

Change in the Air

Life shifts and we change.  There is something new in the air.  We question and redefine our priorities.  This is part of being alive!  We call the big changes transformations or conversions.  What about small changes?  The little steps we take towards God. What about those?  Does that change us? Continue reading “Change in the Air”

Out of Step

Yesterday morning, I woke in a good mood.  My post was ready to go.  I looked forward to a wonderful day.  It just needed the audio clip and a few tweaks.  I signed onto my work desktop and opened my email.  The email’s subject line put me on notice.  Trouble was brewing.  Uh oh… Do I open it or ignore it?

Breaking the Drought

Milly’s Gray Memorial Day

On Memorial Day I woke to rain pelting the windows.  A clash of thunder had me opening the curtains in my dining room.  My giant oak in the front yard thrashed in the wind.  The world looked gray through the wind-driven rain from heavy charcoal clouds.  Will this break the drought?  I half prayed and half thought:  If so, it will be a good Memorial Day.
