Living Life Abundantly

May I In Him Be Found

When I was a girl, my grandma and two of her sisters were living in Duluth, Minnesota. The city of Duluth lies at the tip of the southwestern edge of Lake Superior and sprawls out up a steep hill. I never saw the ocean until I was 16 years old but I...

A Lesson From The Apple Orchard

Last week, I drove to an apple orchard a few miles away from me and purchased a bag of SweeTango apples. I got my first taste of this delectable apple a couple of years ago prior to it's release to the public market while I was on a field trip...
How's Your Example?

What Is Your Standard?

Earlier today, I was preparing a roast for Sunday dinner. Now, I realize everyone has their own way of doing things so I probably need to explain something here in order for this blog to make sense to most people. I was born, raised and live in...
When I Raise My Hands
Published
It was one of those early morning moments, you know the kind when you just wake up abruptly in the wee hours of the morning and discover that you are "singing" praises to God. Without waking my husband, I "sang" and simply...

While it is still September 10th here in the U.S. where I live, it is September 11th in OZ (Australia), where my dear friend @Shanijane (aka Shani) lives and that means... she is now 21 years old. Shani joined CB on November 14, 2008. I can't...

But What About Repentance?
Published
As a mom, a preschool teacher and an elementary school teacher, I have seen more tears brought on by a child's own actions than I can count. I can't help but think that what I've observed in children, is the same behavior I often see in...
