Good long weekend


Art was home for FOUR days, practically uninterrupted from work. It was awesome to have him around, peacefully. How’d you all celebrate giving honor to our service people?

 My kids made a beautiful dinner and we talked about how our freedom right NOW is helping to be ensured by people sacrificing time with their loves ones, sometimes with their life, working to keep our wonderful country free.  To a child that hasn’t known anyone past or currently in the service it makes it trickier for them to really grasp how hard it is for service people. I think we will write and hopefully a soldier will write us back. 

 Even though there are some things happening to erase God from our history, I pray that he will have compassion and may God truly bless America.

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”
