Win or Lose

I wrote a blog this morning…then as technology tends to do to me, it vanished into cyberspace! I’ll try again. Many are unhappy – angry – about the election results. Someone had to lose. That’s the way it is in sports – someone wins someone loses. As a young girl, I was taught to be […]

“From the end of the earth I call to Thee, when my heart is faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For Thou hast been a refuge for me.” (Psalm 61:2) Here is a brief collection of some random thoughts on various issues as I journey this unpredictable path called Life. […]


What Do We Do Now?

We voted. (I hope you did – even if you didn’t like the choices – there were important issues on which to vote.) But after all these months of campaigns, prayer rallies, investigations, accusations, debates, etc., what do we do now? Pray. At this point I don’t know who will win, and I am not […]

View from my bed


Yes. I am home. And so glad to be so. Just to get a hot shower, wash my hair and be in my own bed was such a blessing. I first went into the hospital on September 9th – and here it is Halloween! Good grief! I’ve lost so much time. Never in my wildest imagination did […]


Today’s Health Care

Well, I am 2.5 weeks out of surgery, back home, healing well and even doing exercise! I am weak…need to build strength. Three weeks ago the doctors removed benign cyst from my lower spinal canal – called a “L5 laminectomy and resection of intramural schawnnoma”. Afterward, I did have a spinal fluid leak – not […]



In the morning, before God gets up, I head to the hospital for back surgery. (No, I know God doesn’t sleep – it’s just an expression.) I know I have a kind, gifted surgeon. I know the hospital is excellent. My children will be with me and they will make sure I am taken care […]


Olympic Aftermath – Paralympics

I enjoyed the Olympics – not hour after hour but, the highlights. I especially like the personal interest stories about the athletes. But, my goodness, they seem to get younger and younger with each Olympics; or more likely, I’m just getting older! I admire the young athletes – their disciple and focus. I am encouraged […]


Radical Islam

This is an excellent explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. It was sent to me…take the time to read it. The author of this email is Dr Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and […]

One Great Speech

My dear aunt from Dallas posted this on Facebook. I think it is excellent! And on the 4th of July may well get back to basic American principles. This is a Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give. By Dennis Prager: (Let’s remember his name – he’s got it right!) To the students and […]

Chicken Little

Do you remember the story of Chicken Little? He was walking in the barnyard and an acorn hit him on his head. He thought the sky was falling and ran around telling everyone, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”  He got everyone into a panic. It seems everyone from political candidates, to legislators, […]
