No Ugly Mommies

“Random thought: If there are no ugly babies it stands to reason that there can be no ugly mothers.” I wish I could take credit for this beautiful logic, but this quote is from Antique Mommy…a woman only slightly older than myself, who is thankfully and joyously parenting a young child in her older age, just […]

MM Meditation – Yea and Amen!

I Corinthians 1:20, “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” “Yea” – this King James word  is now a part of modern vocabulary, pronounced slightly differently, but used the same.

The words burn in my soul… They nag me with silent proddings… They won’t stop speaking to me until I release them into letters, words, sentences and paragraphs.The ideas, the thoughts, the verses, the solution, the questions, the […]

April Showers….

 …brought a lot of crabby spirits…. a lot of puddles… a lot of cold days…. a lot of weeds… I couldn’t sit out on deck in morning with my coffee and my Bible.  I couldn’t put out the cushions for the deck furniture.  I couldn’t sit through a baseball or softball game without a hat, mittens, […]
