Family Focus… White Christmas

Yesterday was WINDY… so much so we have had to take down some of our Christmas decorations outside and our table on the back porch almost flew off. The chickens are not allowed out as it would appear they may blow off. That put a little damper on yesterday as last night we had surprised my Grandmother and took her my mom and step-father to see … Read More Family Focus… White Christmas

So kindness is really in the small things and in the small ways we show God to others. Today when hubby and I went to get our blood work done the receptionist was in a bad mood….

Beauty of Flight

Some things that I see instantly make me think of the beauty of God… rainbows, beautiful days, a baby, and on my birthday trip to the zoo butterflies. It would seem that a creature like a butterfly with its delicate wings and big body would have a hard time flying as gracefully as it does… But somehow it does. I would also thing landing on something hard … Read More Beauty of Flight
