Remembering the Good Things About Daddy, by Julie Moore

1- He loved to sit on the porch and listen to the rain. 2- Storms never frightened him. He even went outside when a tornado was close to see if he could get a glimpse. Mama had me and my brother huddled in the stairway of the basement. I was always afraid a tornado would take […]

For Such A Time As This: Testimony by Holly Watson

Her writing is inspiring and hopeful and you need to visit her blog to really see what I mean. You can visit her place A Deeper Walk With Holly at graceforusdevotional.blogspot.com.

Christmas With A Little Grief

Grief and the Christmas season sometimes go hand in hand. Real grief plays itself in every day life just like we see in this story written for a Story Dam prompt. Alma sat at the large wooden antique dining table staring at her hands. They were dry, cracked and showing some wrinkles. The gray in her muddy […]

September 11th Did Anything Good Come After?

    September 11, 2001 brought terror, fear, hate, death and grief. But somehow through all the devastation unity, love, life, loyalty and faith prevailed. How could so much good come from such a horrible disaster? It could only be God. Christians along with other Americans from all over our country pulled together to help the […]

I am over at the Christian Women’s Online Network today. They have so graciously published a post i wrote a few weeks ago When the Enemy Tries To Destroy Self […]

A Grown Up Orphan

A friend of mine lost her mother to cancer last week. Her father died in April of the same horrible disease. I’m just wondering how a woman gets through such a thing! I mean really how devastating to wake up one morning and realize you are now parentless. But for it to happen in such […]

Out Of Her Comfort Zone

She had lots of friends who weren’t from my crowd. To look at us you’d never believe we were compatible. She smoked in the school bathroom; I was scared to go in there most the time. Her crowd was the cool, tough bunch while mine was the mediocre athletic, nerdy types. I can’t remember our […]

Momma Memories

I just read a wonderful post by a new bloggy friend at Coming East called Crossing the Bar. It so touched my heart and brought chill bumps to my arms. Today is her sister’s birthday and she wrote a beautiful tribute to Karen. This brought back memories of my precious mother. Oh how I miss […]
