My dreams. Our love which once burned bright

Violins playing in the night

Belief in fairness, right and true

Gray jeans hang down as if they’re blue

Sunshine when the moon shows up

Coffee in my morning cup

Reach for tomorrow

Is it there

Faded. Faded. Everywhere.



Worst Case Scenario – A JOB MOMENT

Turbulent Sky

Turbulent Sky

The worst thing that could happen now is that I’d have a Job moment where I lost everyone and everything I love.  Job lost his children, his cattle and his wealth all in the same day.   His friends were unsympathetic.  They accused him of  sin.  He broke out in boils and sores and was treated like a leper.  To make matters worse Job’s wife was bitter and demanded that he curse God and die.

Terrible Scenario.

From My Mama’s Back Yard

From My Mama's Back Yard

I took my camera and went to see what I could see. This beautiful creation was just ahead of me.
From my Mama’s back yard and onto my cards. It soothes the souls of many. This photo gives me plenty. Memories of joy and love. From the hands of God above. The only one that looks this blue. From my Mama’s back yard, to encourage you.



Teach them in the morning. Teach them at night. Teach them as you walk along the way. Teach them when they want to hear it and when they don’t. There is a reason God told us parents to be responsible for the precious gifts of little souls He has placed in our hands. We should never get too busy, stressed, unconcerned, or unfocused to take the time to do this little thing that will garner great dividends in the end. It is not up to the school administrators, teachers, preachers, tutors, after school program attendants to raise our babies. They can help, but ultimately the task was given to the parents by the one who made and loves us all. He knows exactly how it should be done. If only we would follow Him and do His will, it might not be so tough for our children to do the same. MORNING, NOON, NIGHT, EVERY DAY. We have an awesome responsibility. Let’s take it seriously, now, before we lose another blessing from our lives. A baby is a joy. There is much hard work and prayer and setting examples, good godly examples involved in preparing a child to live the life that will bring blessings of love, togetherness, honesty and integrity to this world. Yes, sometimes we don’t have all of the answers, but knowing the one who does, makes the task a little easier.  We can only fail when we don’t try.  Nobody is perfect.  That soul is a part of us. It does begin at HOME. It begins with ME.
