The Thin Thread

The Thin Thread

Thin Thread tethers husband to this earth which he walked for seventy-seven years. He stares at his new surroundings at Hospice House. Tell him repeatedly when he asks, “Where am I? Why am I here?” Pray the angels come quickly with their sweet chariot to carry him home. Note to reader: Two days later the angels conducted him into Jesus’ presence.   To see my books visit http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B007F5H0H4 God’s Little Miracle Book is now available in audio at https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/sally-jadlow/1303687606 for iTunes and…

Mother Mable

Mother Mable

A year ago I was invited to submit a poem for an artist to paint her intrepretation of my work. Jenn Wilson of Lawrence chose my poem, Mother Mable. I finally got to see it last Friday night at the Painted Words Exhibit at Aimee’s Coffee House in Lawrence. I wrote it for an elderly woman I saw every week for Bible study at a retirement home. When you greated her, she’d give you a thumbnail sketch of her life in…

Marriage Certificates

Marriage Certificates

According to an article online from Tenth Amendment Center (http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2018/01/oklahoma-bill-would-eliminate-marriage-licenses-nullify-federal-control-in-practice-2/) Oklahoma will again consider dropping marriage licenses and instead issue certificates of marriage after the fact. This is an attempt to make a way out for the county clerks who might be opposed to issuing a license to same sex couples. The proposed bill also leaves out any mention of marriage being between one man and one woman. This opens the door for someone to marry their daughter–or even their…

Hearing Voices

Hearing Voices

We recently left a cruise ship. It’s a long, but very organized process. Each room is assigned to a group number when the passengers arrive. When the ship has docked the final time, each group is to gather in the theatre area until your number is called. You may wait an hour or two, depending on how the disembarking is flowing. As I sat there I watched people. A certain TV station blared on the large screens. Most watched mindlessly,…

Predicting Winter Weather

Predicting Winter Weather

  Ever wonder what the weather will be this winter? Check the inside of a persimmon seed, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac. WINTER WEATHER FOLKLORE Pixabay   HOW TO PREDICT WEATHER WITH A PERSIMMON SEED Cut open a persimmon seed. (The fruit should be locally-grown to reflect your weather. A ripe seed works best.) Image from www.hoosierweather.com Look at the shape of the kernel inside. If the kernel is spoon-shaped, lots of heavy, wet snow will fall. Spoon = shovel! If it is fork-shaped, you can expect…

God’s Little Surprises

God’s Little Surprises

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had as my summer goal, to find a reader to read my God’s Little Miracle Book ( I, II, & III). I hadn’t done anything toward attaining that goal. It was like I was in a holding pattern. On a Friday night I was up half the night unable to go to sleep. When this happens, I often get up to write my prayers. This night I felt the Lord telling me to lay down…

Ice Cream in a Bag

Ice Cream in a Bag

Our family always likes ice cream, but few want to crank the gallon and a half until it’s frozen. Some want strawberry, others desire blueberry. The purists want plain vanilla. With this recipe, each person can make their own flavor. and it only takes about five minutes. I must warn you–it’s habit forming! This and other recipes are found in my book Family Favorites from the Heartland, available on Amazon at the link below. Ingredients: ½ cup milk (for richer version…

Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness

In Matthew chapter 18:21-35, Jesus speaks of the necessity of forgiveness. In essence, He says if we don’t forgive those who have wronged us, we will be handed over to the torturers (verse 34) in the New American Standard Version. In the King James Version, they used the word jailers instead of torturers. In the Greek according to BlueLetterBible.org that word means: “one who elicits the truth by the use of the rack, an inquisitor, torturer also used of a jailer doubtless…
