One Step in My Journey of Servant-hood.

I’ve been reading The Purpose Driven Life.  It is designed to be read in 40 days.  I think I’ve been reading it for 5 1/2 years.  I stashed it on the shelf when I didn’t want to read what it had to say.  Didn’t want to listen to truths I knew I needed to hear. Continue reading “One Step in My Journey of Servant-hood.”

If you see my creative genius wandering aimlessly, point him in my direction PLEASE!!

I don’t think it’s a big secret that I want to be a famous writer and have my books made into movies and make oodles and gobs of money and never leave my house and be a mysterious author who won’t do interviews.  Then again, I don’t think I’ve ever told anyone that.  Oh well, the cat’s out of the bagContinue reading “If you see my creative genius wandering aimlessly, point him in my direction PLEASE!!”

Look for God in the little things. You’ll find Him.

I delivered Meals on Wheels today.  It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do.  It really is.  No joshing.  It’s not required community service or anything, it’s completely voluntary.   Today they had meatloaf, scalloped potatoes, and green beans with some pineapple chunks for dessert.  It made a well rounded meal.  I met an 88 year old manContinue reading “Look for God in the little things.

Santa and the Carnival only Come Once a Year (Thank Goodness)

The annual carnival has arrived in my ordinarily sleepy town.  With it comes the sights, lights, smells, and funnel cake.  It’s appealing from a distance.  The Ferris wheel turning, the high pitched shrieks, the smell of fried corndogs.  It beckons you, calls your name, casting a magical cotton candy trance over your entire body.  One giant stepContinue reading “Santa and the Carnival only Come Once a Year (Thank Goodness)”
