It's been said that even too much of a good thing isn't good. I disagree. I believe there's no such thing as too much of summer's beauty. Of drinking it in fully, with deep appreciation. Here is evidence of some of what I've been drinking in. With that, go forth and enjoy some summer beauty,… Continue reading More Visions of Summer

“Real” Writers Write Anyway. Or Do They?
This past July was the first time I haven't met my Camp NaNo goal. What's Camp NaNo you ask? Read about it here and perhaps you might decide to partake in April of 2020. 🙂 One week into the month and I suspected I might have a difficult time meeting my goal. Two weeks into… Continue reading “Real” Writers Write Anyway. Or Do They?
Most of these photos were taken at a campground in Rocky Mountain National Park with the aroma of campfire smoke wafting through the air. I never tire of that smell. 🙂 Enjoy! Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. - Rachel… Continue reading Summer’s Beauty
Making a Difference to Just One
A while back a friend talked to me about her desire to make a difference in the lives of others by getting her "story" out there. That story consists of almost being murdered by her ex-husband. No one--as in not one--not even the doctors, expected her to survive. But survive she did! She's truly a… Continue reading Making a Difference to Just One
Honoring All Who Served

Women’s History Month
Oh boy! I almost missed Women's History Month. But it's not too late. Technically, it doesn't end until midnight tonight, March 31st. There are so many women who have made enormous steps forward in making women matter in society. That being said, each of us matters. Every. Single. One. But there are women I'd like… Continue reading Women’s History Month
Welcoming 2019 with Words
In 2015 I joined the My One Word movement. This movement is an opportunity to choose one word that best determines how you would like your life to grow in the coming year. It's much more realistic to focus on one word for the year than set New Year's resolutions, only to break them by… Continue reading Welcoming 2019 with Words
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. --Matthew 1:23
I've found two short quotes that speak volumes about the Christmas season. Thought I would share. How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, His precepts! ― Benjamin Franklin Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more! ―… Continue reading Christmas Truths
For those who have followed my blog for a while you know I have three sponsor kids from Africa: Alex from Tanzania, Amede from Togo, and Mamounata from Burkina Faso. These kids have enriched my life in more ways that I ever could have imagined when I first started sponsoring them. A couple of weeks… Continue reading Compassion
