The Teal Door

The Teal Door

Teal is my new favorite color. Teal furniture and decorations highlight this color throughout my house. The color makes me happy. When I began this year and God placed the word surrender on my heart as my one word for the year, He also showed me pictures of teal doors...
Sabbath Offerings ~ Release

Sabbath Offerings ~ Release

The conversation hummed non-stop in the local restaurant. Voices mingled with the background music and TVs spouting news or sports. Table tops displayed meals shared by couples, friends, and families. As I sat across from my friend, I realized how easy friendship is...

Monthly Musings ~ February 2018

They say as you get older time flies by faster. As much as I don’t like to admit I am older, there is truth in that old adage. For the sake of this February recap post, I am going to blame how quickly the month of February flew by on the fact that it is a short...
