Summer Laughter

It's here! The much anticipated, thoroughly enjoyable summertime!  In New England, where we live, it seems that there are only two seasons in the course of a year: Winter and Summer.

What's on the Horizon?

A new year! A new chapter ~ 2013!...more


I recently took a hike in a state park near our house with Buddy (our golden retriever)...alone. I was yearning to be away from it all and just be quiet before the Lord. The fall colors and the beauty lured me deeper and deeper into the woods and before I knew it I could only hear the dog rustling in the leaves.

Colossians Study

Here we are...the last week in September already! The leaves are beginning to change and fall from the trees already and the farmers almanac says we are in for a rough winter! The squirrels around our neighborhood are busier than I've ever seen them, collecting nuts for their storehouses. Last week I began a new bible study on Colossians, and it has been terrific! Do you know about the SOAP personal study plan online?
