Can’t Take It Any More! I thought “the cough” would stop if I ignored it, but it didn’t. How long does it take to destroy “the way it was” and make it “the way it is now”? How long does a “childhood cough” remain hidden behind the alphabet, before someone notices? At first it was… Continue reading Tell It Like It Was!
Sometimes This Old Farm Feels Like A Long Lost Friend…. It’s always good to be back home again. Married four years in 1959, living on the lakeshorewith a toddler of three and an infant of six months, we began to look for another, safer, and perhaps more friendly place to live.

When lilac bushes appear in a vacant field,
we know an old Michigan farm

Today, the television brings the world into my living room.
The good news, the bad news and news that isn’t news at all
invades my life
A large plane had flown into the World Trade Center in New York City
and completely disappeared.
Ann was healed and she was in heaven!
The Holy Spirit was giving to me the knowledge of her healing.

Galatians 5:25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit (NIV). Walking is good for me. It’s good for body and soul; a clear mind, ears that hear the smallest bird that sings and legs that strengthen as I increase the distance. Wildlife hides from me.
