All Part of God’s Plan

Ecclesiastes 3:11

Love for Levins

Our family was hit with a terrible tragedy at the end of October, 2019.¬† My sweet grand niece, Levins, passed away.

Pay attention to the beauty around you!

Find the Blessings!

Many times the blessings are right in front of us
Months ago I looked upon this school year with excitement and anticipation as I was going to start at a new school after twenty years of teaching at the same school. But things quickly changed when we found out we would be teaching virtually. All of that excitement disappeared and was replaced with uncertainty. This…

God Really Works in Mysterious Ways!

Romans 11:33
In August, 2018 I decided that I wanted to begin my day in such a way that would benefit me and bring me joy throughout the day. So I got up a little earlier and sat in silence with my coffee and prayed. I began this a month before the school year started, so by…

My Little One

Fourteen years ago today my baby girl was born. It seems like just yesterday that she was a newborn baby. The fear I had as a new mother is still vivid in my mind. I remember going into the hospital that morning preparing to be induced since my little one was stubborn and nine days…

A Kind Gesture
