Western Kentucky


The kids and I drove down to Western KY to visit family last Friday. What a difference in landscape within a few short hours! I love it here, long curvy roads crossing gentle slopes everywhere. Thick woods suddenly break into bright green fields, some of which seem to glow with purple clover. There are trees ironically called Redbuds, since they are producing the most brilliant purple flowers I have ever seen.

So far we have seen horses, turkey vultures, squirrels, baby lambs and calves, and even our first red fox. This area boasts a large variety of birds, singing all day. Hopefully when we leave, this will be the time our new house really feels like we are coming home…

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
