Artificial Flowers

Stop and Smell

My husband does not like artificial flowers in any way, shape or form. I have been ordered never to place any kind of “fake flowers” on his tombstone if he should happen to be heaven bound before me.

Face to Face with the Younger Me

I like the CCM group, For King and Country so much. They have a song which I like for a lot of reasons…but “Fix My Eyes” is such a good message to my younger self.

I turned 54 the other day. This was the age in which my dad died of a sudden heart attack. A rather sobering thought..and he seemed so young to me then. It seems really young to me now.

My body tells me that this ‘ole earth suit has aged..but the brain doesn’t feel the same.

But with age there has come some wisdom. Wisdom on what is important in life, and wisdom to know that I myself am not wise at all, that all I am is because of Jesus Christ.

So I decided to come “face to face with the younger me.”
