Last Monday I forced myself to go an audition for a play which will open in October.  I was prepared with one comic and one dramatic piece which I’d memorized.  Apparently my memory was still intact.  After a couple of cold readings with others, I was told I had a part!

It’s been a number of years since I’ve performed.  So this is  going to be a test for me.  Last night we had our first read through.  The other cast members were so nice.  The director has a vision for this play – to make it touch hearts with humor as well as carry some tender, loving moments along with tears.

Wish me luck as I enter into another adventure, which may become another swan song.  I truly believe if we challenge ourselves daily, that God has many great things in store for us.


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

  2. Do they still say “Break a leg” before you go on stage? If so… ahh… I can’t bring myself to tell you to break a leg. Words are powerful, you know?

    True Story: when my now 43-year-old daughter was 13, she challenged me to a foot race up a small hill. I said “The only way I will beat you is if you fall down and break a leg.” “Aw, come on, Mom, try it” she said. So we raced . . . and she fell down and broke her leg! She was in a cast all summer.

    So, no breaking legs for you. Have fun! And congratulations!

      They still say it, but since being diagnosed with osteoporosis, maybe it wouldn’t be such a good idea.

      • Yes, I agree! Broken bones are no fun.

        When my daughter broke her leg, it may have saved her life. She broke her leg about an hour after our Sunday morning church service, where I had asked the pastor to pray for the Lord’s protection for my daughter. The pastor laid his hands on her, prayed for protection, and then she went right out and broke her leg.

        The reason my daughter needed protection, was because she had witnessed a terrible crime two days prior to this. She was the closest witness, standing just a few feet away in the parking lot of the neighborhood grocery store, and she got a very good look at the man, as he ran into the woods. The morning after the crime, my daughter got up early and went down the street to hang out with friends. She did this without asking me. When I discovered that my daughter was missing from the house, I frantically searched until I found her. Then I asked her what on earth she was thinking, walking all over the neighborhood, when there was a killer on the loose who surely wanted her dead? But my daughter was 13, in shock and no doubt in denial. Plus she probably believed she was immortal, like most kids tend to do.

        So the very next day we went to church, the pastor prayed for her protection, then we went to a county park far from our neighborhood, and my daughter raced me up a small hill and broke her leg. She broke it on the growth plate, which meant no walking cast. She had to stay inside all summer. Then we moved several states away. And finally, the murderer was caught and convicted. He confessed, so my daughter did not even have to testify, thank Godl

        Isn’t God amazing! He truly does work all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!

    I am glad that Linda Lee broached the subject. Breaking a leg at your age? Ouch. Let’s just leave it with “Have a great time and enjoy.” My mentor and partner in mold train the trainer days hated the concept of having fun. Ever since, I have simply said, “Enjoy.”
