Our Return and A Bit About Why We Were Gone

We’re Back!

I apologize for the lack of posts and technical complications the last few months.  It has been more than a bit hectic around here with health and computer issues (I broke my tablet completely during a set of tornado sirens).   I’m not going to go into details about the health issues but a glimpse of one day can be found HERE on my chronic illness blog.

The health issues aren’t going to go away but I believe I found a way to keep the blog up AND take care of our crazy life.

My husband has solved the technical issues and I am working on adjusting to a different tablet screen.

I have a plan for the next 4 months and have been working diligently on it.

I will be sharing a rough draft of it in the next post.

Once again, I apologize for any inconvenience and hope to share some inspiration beginning August 1st.

Stay tuned for more.

I am Thankful for Creation


In the beginning God CREATED the heavens and the Earth

Genesis 1:1 KJV

I am thankful that He created and He gave us, as humans, the ability to dream and create as well.

I am Thankful for Creation

He didn’t create us as earthworms, to spend all day in the dirt-taking shelter where we can, getting stepped on by things MUCH larger than us, being eaten by birds, shriveling in the sun or drowning in the rain.
