What do you want?

Hey there!  How are all y’all doing?  Things are going pretty well here.  It’s been cloudy all weekend, but not much rain.  That’s actually okay here.  I was able to take a beautiful drive through an impossible detour to meet with my spiritual director this afternoon.  We sat at a small table at the edge of a little pond, surrounded on the far side by trees and teeming with fish and dragonflies.  It was such a beautiful and peaceful setting. It was a bit warm, but cloudy, with a cool breeze rippling the surface of the water, so it was quite pleasant.  Grab a glass of sweet tea or something and find a relaxing spot!  Continue reading


Billy Goats

Hey there!  How are all y’all doing?  Fine?  Great!   Grab a glass of something cold to beat this heat, and sit down and relax a minute.  Especially if you’ve been out in the summer heat!   Remember – NEVER leave a child, pet or elderly person in a vehicle if it’s above about 72 degrees outside.  A car can heat up 30-40 degrees in under 15 minutes, even with cloud cover.  Okay, I’m off the soap box.  Oh wait – I’m gonna climb back on so y’all can hear me, lol.

My BFF has some acreage with pretty much the entire farm menagerie, minus a hog or sheep.  Continue reading

Stalk Your Dreams

Hey there!   How’s everybody?  Got your beverage of the day?  Great!   Lets find a comfy place and take a load off.  I’m still trying to recover from the holidays – and live the adventure!  I think a lot of folks were a little surprised at the direction my adventure took over the past six weeks or so.  I guess I had some secrets that folks didn’t know about.  Continue reading

De-‘Stuff’ing: Help Wanted

Hey there!   This is going to be a really short post!  You can grab a cuppa if you like, find a comfy spot and relax, but I’m not going to talk long today.   I have a question, so all y’all are actually going to write this post with your comments.

I’m looking for advice.  What’s the fastest/easiest/most effective way to declutter and thin out your ‘stuff’?   Remember we talked about stuff and detachment awhile back.   I look around, now that Christmas is over, and I have waaayyyy too much stuff (not nearly all of it related to Christmas, lol)  Continue reading

God Had a Plan

Hello again!  So glad you decided to stop by.  Pull up a comfy place to sit, grab your iced tea (it’s really hot here in Kansas today!) and let’s chat.  Let’s see… where was I?   Oh yes.  God had a plan.

God definitely had a plan, from the beginning.  You can read about my adoption in my post called “Naming Names”.

When I was 14, a traveling youth evangelist came to our middle school and told us Continue reading
