Doing a NEW Thing!

Doing a NEW Thing!


Posted By on Nov 1, 2021

Two years ago in October, I was in deep reflection. I wondered what in the world had happened to my life, questioning all my decisions such as, “Why in the world did we think getting a puppy was a good idea?” Not to mention the unraveling of everything else I thought I’d built. LOL. Yes, well pride does go before a fall doesn’t it? That comes from Proverbs 16:18. I kept asking God the whys, how’s, when’s – you...

Mighty Dog of Valor!

Ezra, my mighty dog of valor! I recently began calling him this based on two things: 1) what we say & declare/decree over others matters (our words matter far more than we may realize), 2) from the scripture on Gideon in the Bible, Judges 6:12 The thing is, Gideon was threshing wheat in the wine press to hide from the Midianites what he was doing – the right thing in the wrong place. However, the Angel of the Lord appeared...

Desert “Drift” Wood & Weeds

Desert “drift” wood and weeds. Weird thing to take a pic of huh? These are the things I’ve learned to notice and gaze upon while living in the desert. Especially when I used to go on my early morning walks with my former Carolina Dog, Schatzie. The quiet early mornings with her by my side were the best. I learned to notice and see things in the quiet. It wasn’t still because mornings are active times with wildlife but we need to be...

Tuning IN, to Tune UP!

Tuning IN, to Tune UP!


Posted By on Sep 15, 2021

Inspired by Ezra Not feeling on par? What happens when your vehicle needs a tune-up?  We take it to get a tune-up (or if you’re mechanically inclined you do it yourself). What about an instrument that isn’t in tune?  The musician gets it tuned-up or it won’t sound very good no matter how accomplished the musician is. What about our bodies (and those of our dogs), do they need a tune-up also? The simple...

Deserts and Music

My favorite desert wild flowers! I wrote this back in June when we were in severe drought. Even though the drought has ended and the blazing temperatures have waned a tad, we are often still breathing the smoke from new wildfires or smoke from neighboring states that are still blazing. At the end of this I’ll share a pic of just one of the THREE ponds that have appeared in our lower yard since I wrote this post initially for my...

Speaking Better Things…

Speaking Better Things…


Posted By on Jul 21, 2021

What does that mean, speaking better things? As in positive words? Yes, it can and should mean that in part. The BLOOD is speaking better things – as in the blood of Jesus, the Cross. Yes, I am going there -AGAIN. The time we are in now in this world is no time to be tip-toeing through those tulips any longer. Would you like to travel this path with me into the inner world of humanity? The mind, the blood, the DNA? This time...
