I want to change this to prayer and bible study, but Apple doesn't let us swap out these features. How did we get to this point?


I've been thinking ...

My Boaz and I have been traveling around Florida over the Christmas to New Years while his work was on holiday shutdown. Walking, water exercise, and dancing kept us moving.

My hubby and I decided to go mall walking at a prestigious mall because it was too cold outside. One thing struck us: There were barely any Christmas decorations compared to previous years. The only real display was at the center with a castle for Santa pictures. Sure, stores had their decorations up. Of course, they want to sell Christmas gi...

So, I’ve been sitting at the island in my kitchen, sipping coffee while setting up posts for social media. Flurries flit about in a hazy gloom outside. This time of year is always rough for me, even though my first husband died seven years ago. The scene outside just adds to grief’s effect. You would think grief gets better wit...

I got quite a workout the other day, considering that my last good formal workout was at an Air Force base gym. Indeed, I've gotten exercise lifting, carrying, going up and down steps, etc., which I could tell because it felt more comfortable than expected.
