What’s Next?

Dear Girlfriends: Last Monday, after I returned from Speak Up, I wrote a Facebook post. Later, I realized I probably should have written it as a blog post, and then, a few friends mentioned the same thing to me. So…here it is!  You know how much I love my ‘outside office’. I’m out here this…

A Beautiful ADVENTure: Mary

Hi There! If you are like me, trusting God while waiting is an on-going exercise. I’d like to tell you I have conquered the tendency to want to worry and fret, but that’s simply not true. I am still growing and learning. In my 59 years on this earth, I have increasingly trusted Him more…

Waiting For What’s Next

This morning, I was up early to have a little quiet time before my first day back to school. It wasn’t the nice, long quiet time I have been used to all summer –  it was early, it was dark and I only had 15 minutes. Even so, God had something to say to me…
