Joseph, a Baby, and Disappointment

Of the many ways we can be disappointed in life, in my opinion, infidelity would be a top ranking, if not the top of the list. When a person that is trusted shows up with the failure of faithfulness and purity—that is a big blow.  Joseph, the Carpenter faced that ultimate disappointment. Joseph and Mary …

Sniff, Sniff–Goodby May

May is my favorite month of the year.  The weather is usually not to hot and not too cold in May.  It is a “free” month when it comes to heating and cooling. That isn’t the only thing about May I like, however.  My yard has something blooming the entire month of May.  Although the …

An April Doodle

April is a favorite months for me.  Spring is my favorite season, and baseball is my favorite sport.  It is a wonderful mix! It seems that I have acquired a well-rounded enjoyment of music, but nothing quite matches the crack of bat and the roar of a baseball stadium. When the pandemic was at its …

At Calvary

A song for the day, today, Good Friday. Do you recall, as I do, that time was when schools and businesses closed at noon on Good Friday. Everything seemed to stop to remember that day when Jesus went to the cross, willingly, to pay the penalty in our place for our sin. Read the words, …

A March Memories Doodle

As a child, I can’t say that I much cared for the month of March. Central Wisconsin saw ice begin to break up on the lakes and fishermen who had ice   fishing shanties had deadlines to get them off the lakes.  We had sandy soil on our farm place and thus, not much mud.  My …

A February Doodle

Blink once, it is Ground Hog’s Day, blink twice, it is February 28.  It occurred to me today that perhaps Ground Hog’s Day was dreamed up by some weather purveyor because typically, February is usually a cloudy month.  In hopes that the groundhog would come out, yawn and stretch a bit before venturing back for …

I’ve been reading. . .

Reading with eyes and ears, that is. I am thankful that the Library of Congress provided books for the blind and hard-of-seeing folks like me. I let my books pile up that I have read and if I don’t consolidate them  into mini reviews, you won’t get them at all.  So here we go. ONE:   …

A Milk Review

Well, let me stand corrected.  Early this week, with a brewing winter storm coming at us, like most of other Franklin residents, I decided I needed milk to get me through. The shelves were empty except for chocolate and“designer” milks.  I mistakenly called almond milk “fake milk” and picked up a half gallon.     I had …

A January Doodle

We have a new year.  I like simple, yet, I like new too.    Fresh starts are always to be looked upon as mercy drops. I like to start a new calendar and mark it up with birthdays and note what day my birthday will fall on in the coming year and note holidays and how …
