I just finished putting the last of the groceries away and put a baked potato in the microwave when the lights went out. We scrambled around to find some matches and candles. Expecting the lights to go on in 10 to 15 min., we sat down to eat our chicken and bread dinner by candlelight.
An hour went by, still pitch darknow I was starting to get a little angry. A show I had been waiting to watch was coming on. I thought, "What are...
had hopes and dreams in his youth. He played hide and seek, dodge ball
and had many friends. He had food on the table, slept in a warm bed at
night and had parents who loved him very much. In high school he was
the star quarterback, went to dances and had a steady girlfriend. But
that one evening irrevocably changed his life forever. Continue
a little girl my sister & I loved to catch the "black furry
caterpillars." We would get a shoe box, punch dozens of air holes in
the top. Then it was time to scour around the neighborhood looking for
all the décor. Lots of broken tree branches with bright green leaves
still attached, Small twigs, grass, and a little dirt. We wanted our
new pet to feel right at home in his new environment. Finding
Crossing the busy intersection,
there stood "Moses," a local street preacher who received his name from
the people in town. He can be seen on any given day at the Huntington
Beach or Newport Beach Pier. He doesn't shout out or yell at people as
they pass by, he stands at the corner, while people wait for the light
to change. He reads from the Bible, verse after verse, hoping that God
will use him to touch someone's life. He has...
Every morning I make sure and do a half hour bible study, then turn on the t.v. to watch Joyce Meyer's at 8:00 a.m. I turn it up really loud so I can hear it while I'm in the bathroom getting ready for work. She told a GREAT true story about Eagle's that I wanted to share.
As an Eagle ages, his feathers start to wear down, his beak gets covered with barnacles and his claws are worn and not quite as sharp. As he fly's low to swoop..
Yesterday on a brisk, windy, sunny day we took our dog Allie to the
beach. This is always a very special, joyous day for her. She is a
Siberian Husky. When you own a husky you're told to never let them off
their leash. They have a natural inborn instinct to run. Over the years
we have slowly trained her. On our beach visits we let her off the
leash. She runs a little ways, jumping, sniffing and playing and then
"I'm too scared...I can't touch the
ground out there," Josh shouted as he continued to stay close to shore.
The crystal clear blue waves, perfectly formed, came crashing to the
shore in a foam of white wash. Josh happily jumped on his board as the
foamy white water approached, standing up on his board and riding it
for a few seconds to the shoreline. My
husband tried to coax Josh out to where the real waves were. He...
husband and I decided to spend a quiet day at the beach on Sunday after
church. We walked down Main Street, ate lunch and then headed to the
pier and sat down on a bench overlooking the ocean. We were spending
some much needed alone time, watching the surfers, talking and just
hanging out. A team of
street dancers walked up and told everyone who was sitting around to
please hang out because they would be performing...
Today I was thinking back on all of my old hopes and dreams. So many
things that I thought I would've accomplished by now. It's funny how
our dreams as kids often turn into our biggest regrets as adults. I
think I can describe most of my life as a U-turn. At first very excited
about my new travels...but after a few miles, I stop cold and make my
U-turn back to my comfort zone. Here's my list of U-Turn dream jobs growing up (they..
This Christmas will be different than any we've had before. We received an early "GIFT" that became an unbelievable blessing. A white envelope was slipped into my husbands hands at our son's football game. The friend gave specific instructions not to open it until he got home. He put it into his pocket and came to sit beside me telling me what had just transpired. I curiously looked at it, "What is it?" "I don't know but we have to at..
