Who Needs a Hug???


I’m hoping everyone is coping as well as can be expected with isolation and social distancing. As for me, I’m in severe hug withdrawal, so am sending hugs to all my friends and family including the blogging world. Happy Saturday.

Sunshine in a Dark Place


Although the world looks dark at the moment with all the closures, social distancing, dying, frustration, anxiety, etc., when I think of my family and friends and the closeness we can still share via social media it brings a smile to my face and hope to my heart. This little image is for all of you who light up my life.

Sharing


The best part of caring is sharing. Here is one of my great-granddaughters sharing a cookie with me on a recent visit. What makes this picture so special is that I had done the same thing with her mother with a french fry thirty-six years ago. Do your share of sharing today. Happy Saturday.

Saying Thank You


There is always so much to be thankful for but do we always remember to give thanks? Today I am thankful for spending quality time with family for the past few days, seeing some of my precious great-grandchildren, good food, companionship, conversation, seeing selflessness in action and lots of hugs. I am renewed, restored and looking forward to worship and fellowship as I now head out to Sunday services and more opportunity for saying thank you. Happy Sunday.

There Are No Words


Yesterday I learned of the death of twenty-seven-year-old Jona Kay who died in a car accident on May 7th. Jona is the granddaughter of Butch and Bonnie Dean, fellow bloggers and lovely people.

In their own words “There Are No Words” to describe the pain and anguish this family is suffering.

No, there are no words, but each of us can find words of prayer for God’s peace and comfort for Bonnie and Butch and all of Jona’s family.

Thank you for helping to ease their pain.

When Tears are not Enough


A fire in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Tuesday, killed seven children ranging in age from four months to fourteen years. Their father is in life threatening condition and the mother is remarkably unharmed…physically.

Can anyone even fathom the devastation this mother is dealing with?

Tears are not enough to wash away the enormity of this woman’s suffering in the moment and in years to come…her own tears and those of all who mourn with her.

Some will ask where is God in all this.

Along with the rest of us…Jesus wept. (John 11:35)
