Now that Christmas is past, the gifts have been opened, and the decorations have disappeared, it’s time to pay the piper. I found this picture on Facebook with the caption, “This snowman is to scare away the bills.”  If it works, we better pray for snow!

A Charcutier Tree

A Charcutier Tree

This Christmas I made a charcuterie tree for a centerpiece. I bought a Styrofoam cone and  covered it with plastic wrap. I gathered three kinds of cheese, red peppers, pickled okra, sliced red pears and apples, and rolled up ham with cream cheese and dill pickle relish inside. I stuck each bite on the Styrofoam with party toothpicks. I intended to put black and green olives on it, but forgot them. The star on top is from the red pepper. It…

A Christmas Poem

A Christmas Poem

Christmas A baby’s cry pierced the darknessseparating time from a B.C. erato an A.D. one.  God’s 400-year silence broken between Old and New Testamentsby the Word delivered in flesh and blood.A voice no longer filtered through a prophet. God’s Son came to earthto declare His rescue from sin and deathto weary waiters who heard of Messiah,but now beheld Him with their own eyes. We, once again, wait for His second coming.Come, Lord Jesus.   My books are available here

A Challenge Achieved

A Challenge Achieved

At the beginning of 2023, I challenged myself to read through the Bible ALOUD. I had read it many times through using only my eyes, but this time I wanted my ears to hear it too, so it could sink down deeper into my heart. Because there was 2,160 pages, I needed to read about six pages a day. I must have read more than that, because this past Friday, November 25, I read the last half of Revelation. I…

A Method in My Madness

A Method in My Madness

I’m writing this blog the Sunday before Thanksgiving. I’ve just finished making a pot of chili and a dutch apple pie on this gray, dreary day. Soon I’ll be cooking for 30 or so who will show up here on Thursday. You may wonder why I’m cooking today since Mr. Turkey is waiting to get his tutu cooked come Wednesday, and potatoes, cranberries, potatoes, and sweet potatoes are cued to take their turn in the pot.  It’s simple. We will…

In Days of Unrest

In Days of Unrest

In these uncertain days, there seems little to give us hope except to keep our eyes on Jesus. If we do, He takes every opportunity to assure us He hasn’t forgotten us. Four days before Israel suffered an attack on Oct. 7, I awoke every hour through the night with a strange word on my mind. Finally, about four a.m. I awoke again with the same word echoing. “Colo mundo. Colo Mundo.” I knew I’d never remember it in the…
