  • To everything there is always a season and always change

    When I was younger, I remember living for summer. We would play in the woods, play baseball, football, swim, fish and stay up late. We would usually go on vacation, camping or to the beach. Summer was my favorite season of the year, for sure.

  • The calm amid the chaos

    I got a text the other day from a friend that said simply: “Life is chaotic.”

  • Knights of Columbus
  • Loving my neighbor: invitation pending

    It’s been a while since I thought about skipping church because of the sermon topic, but last week I was tempted.
    At my church we’re currently going through a sermon series on “Love Thy Neighbor,” which in itself isn’t a skipping-church-worthy topic. I mean, who doesn’t agree that we should love our neighbors as we love ourselves?

    One night at the dinner table, there was a disturbance outside; we didn’t have a window view of what was happening so I was asked to look out the door.

  • Sharing a few thoughts about "addiction"

  • A batch of random thoughts

    Once a month or so I make my husband a huge pot of vegetable soup and divide it into small plastic containers to put in the freezer for his lunch.

  • Memory can be a mixed bag

    ec. 31 signals closure of the old year and heralds in the new. It takes a few weeks for me to get used to writing the correct year on letters and memos. I catch up – normally sometime in February. When it comes to that, I realize I am not alone. It takes time for everybody to get used to the New Year.
