Forgotten Dreams

Hello! Nice to be back. I’ve been waiting two days to tell you some pretty cool things that have happened on our cross-country trip. So, I’m going to put the European stories on hold, for just a bit. Funny thing is, in some ways our past experiences there have tied into this trip. That’s what I want to tell you …

Tests & Trials Along with a Few Surprises (part 2)

Hey there and welcome back. I’m sitting in a hotel in Williams, Arizona as I type this. My family and I are on our cross country vacation. Yesterday we saw Las Vegas, today it was Hoover Dam, and tomorrow it’s the Grand Canyon and Meteor Crater. What a whirlwind tour! And how wonderful to see some of our own country! …

Tests & Trials Along with a Few Surprises

Hi there! Thanks for coming back. I’m sorry I’ve let a week pass by. My family and I are getting ready to go on vacation, so things are a bit crazy at the moment and will remain so through mid-July. I plan to keep posting while on vacation, so be sure to keep checking back. For those of you regualar …

What was God thinking? (part 8)

Hello all! Sorry for the delay. It’s been a really productive week. Got a lot of writing done. Woohoo! What an awesome Saturday. Went to a book signing (no, not mine…but hopefully soon!) and met Brandilyn Collins. What a fun lady! I so enjoyed meeting her, laughing with her, and getting my copies of Stain of Guilt and Dead of …

What was God thinking? (part 7)

My buddy Heather is away, so I don’t have someone reminding me to make a new entry! LOL! Hope she’s having a great time. I know we left on a bit of a down note. Brave soul that she is, Mom got on that plane Monday morning and off we went. I was still clueless as to how to help …

What was God thinking? (part 6)

Hello there! Sorry I delayed again. I’ve got a new writing project that’s keeping me so busy, my head is spinning! Well, needless to say I was pretty confused at this point, but I had a sense of peace about it. I think I was starting to realize I needed to let God take control and back off. That’s a …

What was God thinking? (part 5)

Hi there! Welcome back. Please know that if you are coming back to read my blog, I am so very thankful. My hope is that God will use this to inspire you with His greatness. The one thing I learned in this journey: God is ever faithful. It has become my mantra. So, God kept very silent after we got …

What was God thinking? (part 4)

Thank you so much for the comments. They are encouraging and wonderful, like water for a wayworn desert traveler. Oh, before I start, dear hubby clarified that it wasn’t a hurricane, but Tropical Storm Francis. Sorry about that. So, onward we go. Let me tell you, this was one of the most frightening experiences I have ever had. As we …

What was God thinking? (part 3)

Hi there! Thank you for coming back. Please leave me a comment, too. I’d love to hear from you. So, to continue. New Orleans had been hit by a hurricane and most of the city was flooded. We couldn’t believe it. Had we come so far with our Act of Congress for no reason? My mother had taken a day …

What was God Thinking? (part 2)

Hey there! Welcome back. Well, to continue this story, first I need to backtrack a little. Before all this happened, God had already told me a change was coming. He impressed upon me he had plans for a move, but I thought he meant to another church. At the time I was serving as a Stephen Minister, and I just …
