God’s Presence In Simple Things

I have become much more focused and aware of nature’s beauty since spending twelve weeks quarantined in my Manila high rise apartment. For 84 days, I could only experience nature from a distance…an image behind glass. Now, I find myself taking periodic walks just to breathe fresh air and admire […]

Feeling Put Out

Feeling Put Out | Thankful For New Mercies

Wouldn’t it be great if every single day was puppies and rainbows? I can remember my babies looking up with wide eyes as they asked, “Why can’t every day be my birthday?” To which I explained if every day was a birthday, then birthdays just wouldn’t feel special. I guess […]

July 4th Memory Roundup

July 4th Memory Roundup

I’ve always been the sappy one in the family, I’m the one who drags everyone out to celebrate holiday observances. I love crowds and togetherness. I just like to be “in the mix”; especially, after spending years out of the country during most major holidays. But then there’s 2020, the […]

Dance In My Kitchen | Shake Out Of It

I woke up the other morning with a good case of ditzy on the brain. I had actually set an alarm for an early morning Zoom call…well, I guess 9am is early if you have no other place to be. However, regardless of the set alarm and a calendar reminder, […]

Where’s My Norman Rockwell? | When Life Is Less Than Ideal

I must admit, my present-day picture seems less than ideal, and, right now, my real life does not resemble a Norman Rockwell painting.
