Peace In A Hard Day's Night

" Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." ~ Jesus, (John 14:27 niv) The post that Kabu wrote today was just what I needed. I may read it three or four more times. It is making my tension headache... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Day At Home

On getting up and staggering into the bathroom barefooted and without turning on the light, I kicked the bathroom scales with just my little toe and thought I had torn it off. I turned on the light and looked at it fearfully, but it was still there just sticking out kind of funny. I hobbled back... Sign in to see full entry.

Something To Look At Besides The Bad News

When problems arise, especially continuing, long, long time problems, our minds become consumed with trying to figure out ways to cope. Some go into denial thinking, "It can never happen to me.", but down deep it keeps grinding away at our thoughts and fears. It doesn't really help to keep watching... Sign in to see full entry.

Spring For A Day

My redbud tree across the way is in full bloom. Not only the branches, but the whole trunk has little clusters of blooms up and down that look like corsages pinned to its bosom, and to its shoulder, and to its waist; even one to its wrist I think. I love the color of the redbud blooms. Across the... Sign in to see full entry.

Was She Referring To The Coronavirus Pandemic

Helen Keller passed away in 1968, more than 50 years ago, but today I read a quotation from her that made me think she knew it was coming. "Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold." - Helen Keller I had been racking my brain... Sign in to see full entry.

How Long Will It Be?

Went out and swept the porch in the sunshine and fresh air. It felt so good. Then I used the wipes on all of the doorknobs inside and out all over the place. Now they are saying that everyone should be wearing a mask. I don't have any of them. I will have to dig out my cowboy-type red bandanna and... Sign in to see full entry.

Something Different For Me

I had never had a Doctor's appointment by telephone before. If it were not for our State of Missouri having a Shelter-at-Home order for several weeks now due to coronavirus, I would not have had this one. I've always very much disliked appointments with doctors even though I like him very much. It... Sign in to see full entry.

One Of Those Mornings

This is one of those mornings in which I wrote a blog to post in this space, spending time and effort to make it just right as I wanted to express, checked it for spelling, and then somehow erased it instead of saving and posting. I give up for now. Perhaps later I will begin again. My Granddaughter... Sign in to see full entry.
