Updates and Transitions – October 13 Discussion and Devotions

Updates and Transitions – October 13 Discussion and Devotions

Falling back into blogging during this fall season! It has been a very busy couple of months since I last  blogged, but I’m hoping to get back into again now on a consistent basis.   Our home nestled among the beautiful fall foliage.   So this falls (see what I did there?)  into the category of “everything happens for a reason” and relates to how God works all things out for our good when we trust Him and His guidance….

3 Things Thursday – April 2 Devotions

3 Things Thursday – April 2 Devotions

A fellow blogger, Salma, of The Write Balance, participates in this “Three Things Thursday” linkup and I finally remembered this week, because I’ve been wanting to do it, too! So my three things for today are the following. 1. VISIT WITH MY DAUGHTER!! 🙂 My oldest daughter Shara, who moved out to Colorado over a year ago, came to visit. I haven’t seen her since last May when she was back in New England to visit. She took me out…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day -March 17 Devotional Thoughts

Happy St. Patrick’s Day -March 17 Devotional Thoughts

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all those who celebrate this day! I had an amazing experience 41 years ago, in March 1974. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Ireland, march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade, and participate in the International Band Competition, as a member of the Laconia High School (NH) marching band. One of the things that stood out to me the most flying over Ireland was how the land looked like green patchwork quilts!   So…

March 8 (Belated) Devotional Thoughts

Belated Happy Sunday! I hope you remembered to “spring ahead” one hour before you went to bed Saturday night if you live in a part of the U.S. that follows daylight savings time! I can remember a few times, while I was growing up, and then with my own family, when we forgot…and of course, we arrived an hour late for church!   ~~*~~ -1- “Joy is never released through unbelief, but it is always present where there is belief….

March 3 (Belated) Devotional Thoughts

March 3 (Belated) Devotional Thoughts

I’m continuing my efforts to “catch up” my daily devotional thoughts –these are belatedly for March 3rd.   “Many people fail at marriage because they don’t love themselves, and therefore they have nothing to give in the relationship. They spend most of their time trying to get from their spouses what only God can give them, which is a sense of their own worth and value. Receiving the free gift of God’s unconditional love is the beginning of our healing,…

Relaunching Words of Encouragement

Relaunching Words of Encouragement

Hello? Is anybody out there? I have been away from this blog for far too long, but I’m relaunching it today, March 1st, 2015, with renewed motivation to blog regularly. This month is special to me, because it’s the month my beloved Dad and I shared birthdays, his on the 15th and mine on the 29th. We used to have group celebrations, and my Dad, middle daughter (I have three), and I all had spring birthdays. If you are new…
