Hello Girlfriends,
Today is The March for Life in Washington D.C. I wrote this post in 2017, and ever since, I’ve re-posted it each year. I share it annually to {hopefully} bless any woman who is feeling conflicted or in pain over a past abortion. This can be a silent pain, and carries with it invisible suffering. If you are such a woman, know that you are not invisible to God – He sees you, knows you and loves you. – Laura

This morning, Pat and I are heading down to the beach for a few days. We’ve been keeping a watchful eye on Hurricane Matthew, but it looks like he is going to stay away from the Delaware coast. Whew! We will encounter a dramatic-looking ocean for a day or two, though. There is nothing like…

It is hard to believe, but today marks one year since my mother went to heaven. I was going to write ‘since I lost my mother’ – but, as my friend Debbie reminded me recently, I haven’t lost her at all. She is safe and I know exactly where she is. Thank you, Jesus. I…

We have been buried under 30 inches of snow! Our little town of Damascus was right in the bullseye of Snowzilla, Winter Storm Jonas, or whatever silly name the media bestowed upon it. All I know is that the snow went on and on for 36 hours – it covered everything in its path and shut down…

My summer started with a long-awaited lunch with one of my oldest and dearest friends. We wanted to get together ever since my mother died in March but, because I work at the local high school, we decided to wait until school was out so we could both relax and enjoy the day. Work ended…
