In solitude, when we are least alone.

Here’s to a new year of healthy eating:
Crack open a pomegranate and enjoy those
antioxidant-rich jewels of tangy goodness!
A simple and heartfelt “Merry Christmas!”
from my home to yours.
May you experience much peace and joy this holiday season.
I’ll return in the New Year …
Through the heart of tender mercy and loving-kindness of our God,
a Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit us,
To shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace.
~ Luke 1:78-79 Amplified
Here’s a wholehearted anniversary smooch
to ruffle your cap, hunny!
23 years with an exemplary husband is a wonderful way to live!

Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both fruit and tree.
But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap!
~ Abraham Lincoln

Behind me and before me is God
and I have no fears.

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Thinking on freedom today, and its unspeakable price.…
I am old
I am wrinkled
I am scarred
I am merely a shadow of myself
But I still have a heart.
Invisible, undeniable, foundational, constant, powerful,
and capable of creating sublime beauty.
Don’t be discouraged by small beginnings; remember:
“Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.”
~ American proverb
There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject,
the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person.
~ G.K. Chesterton
