My husband, among other things, is an 1800s artist re-enactor.  He loves the 1800s time period and the rugged lifestyle that went along with it.  The artists of that era, were the media of today.  Not only did they create beautiful works of art, they traveled with explorers to unexplored lands.  They also photographed with their paint palette and canvas.  The original plein air painters of America.  Through their paintings, we have a recorded history of how people lived, where they walked and what they did.

Times change daily for us and lately we’ve seen a lot of change.  This year Paul was unable to attend a re-enactment that he performs in each year because of all this house chaos.  Sometimes we have to give things up in order to move forward.  This was one of those things.

For those of you going through any struggles at the present time, don’t forget that some of the most difficult times in our lives are evidence that God is working within us.  Someday we will look back at these troubles and see why we had to endure them.  Perhaps they are for us to help another going through the same difficulties.  Sometimes it’s simply to toughen us up for the next round.  All of the time, we can rest assured that God is in the midst of us, making us ready for eternity.

When we face the most perilous things in life – He is there.  When we suffer illness – He is there.  When financial matters invade every inch of our being – He is there.  When we receive blessings undeserved – He is there.

In all things, let us praise the Lord.  Let us give thanks even in times of change or adversity.  Help us, Lord, to be strengthened through your Word, and lifted up by the fellowship we receive in our church community.  Amen!




As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
