  • Stephen Covey asked the question, “What one thing could you do, that if you did it well and did it consistently would greatly benefit your personal life and your professional life?” Many, many people have responded with, “Read my Bible.”

  • For Christmas I gave my husband Psalm 91.
    Not all of it, just the first two verses:
    “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
    I found an artist on the Etsy website who hand paints scripture verses, white lettering on rustic gray paper.

  • There is something about working in the garden on a sunny winter day: It clears debris from both the perennial bed and the gardener’s head.   
    There is clarity to the winter landscape that is quite different than any other season.  On a clear day, the sky is a true blue, you can see all the birds flitting about the leafless trees.
