New Day

        The dawn of a new day...                                               Full of promise...                                                                             beauty....                                                                                              and hope. "Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lam. 3:21-23 (NIV)  May everyone have wonderful week.  Hugs Debbie


How many of you remember that old song from 1965 "What the World Needs Now Is Love"? If you do you may be around my vintage! With Valentine's Day having just past it made me start thinking about certain aspects of love. Why is reds and pinks associated with this word?  Why do we often think that love is a noun when it is a verb?  Why don't we recognize sooner that love is more than a is a way of life? Genuine love is not always takes can be messy.   Is it worth it?   I believe so. "Love   is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails."  1 Cor. 13:4-8.  (NIV) Perhaps nothing much has changed since those words were penned by the apost

Valentine's Day

This week many of us will celebrate Valentine's Day. In honor I am sharing a beautiful song and video that my beloved sent to me several weeks ago.   I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.! Hugs Debbie "My lover spoke and said to me, "Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me." Song of Songs 2:10 (NIV)

A Wild Ride

January 2019 made for a wild ride.  Like so many of you dealing with snow, ice, wind and bone chilling temperatures every day seemed challenging. I am feeling hopeful that February will be a bit kinder.  Today we are seeing lots of sunshine...warmer weather - almost 50 degrees.  The snow and ice pack are in the process of melting. Photo taken July 2018 Even groundhog Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow - which means his prediction is early spring.   I am hoping he is right.  Bet some of you are too. May everyone have a blessed first week of February. Hugs Debbie "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."  Romans 12:12 (NIV)
