My Mama

While Ruby was in the hospital my mama’s obituary appeared in the Buffalo News.  Heavy hearted and tears ever present, I’m so grateful she’s with Jesus.  I am reaching for my phone no less than 30 times a day to tell her something.  So I’ve whispered messages to the Lord asking Him to pass the…

For Those Not on Facebook…

Ruby began having a seizure during her nap on Friday.  She had been joyful and loving-life-full-tilt prior to her nap.  When it began rescue meds were administered immediately.  We debated calling first responders because we have stayed home for six weeks…but the seizure just didn’t seem to be stopping.  When they arrived she continued seizing…

My Mom is With Jesus

My precious and most-cherished mama met our sweet Jesus early this morning. She had looked forward to the day she would see her Savior face-to-face, loved unconditionally, never to know earthly rejection again. She also spoke regularly of how she missed my sister Janey and how she longed to see her again. Grieving deeply, yet…

My Mom

My mom and I were always very close when I was growing up.  Life was definitely not easy in our home and considering my mom did not have a good home life herself, she made an incredibly beautiful effort to provide precious memories that I hold close to my soul. One warmer-than-normal Buffalo winter she…

Fading Flowers

About six weeks ago I dug out my old Bible to study from again.  I had used it for at least 25 years and finally had “retired” about 10 years ago and began using a new Bible.  But I’d been missing it, especially all the margins that I’d written in – complete with dates and…

The Dread…

The last few days I’ve been feeling that I needed to write this post.  Then last night our small group had its weekly Zoom study.  It’s such a beautiful time of connecting with others. At the end of small group yesterday evening a friend brought this very subject up and when I heard her mention…

How Are You Doing?

I have been praying for you friends. How are YOU doing?  How has CoVid19 affected your life?  Do you know anyone personally who has/has had CoVid19? Dw’s so much better (thank you for praying) he’s still resting, laying low with long naps as he continues to heal from that nasty bacterial pneumonia. My immune compromised…

An Update on Dw

I have posted this update on FB…. “Can you hear the shouts of praise?? Dwight does NOT have CV19. Thank you for praying…still need him healed from bacterial pneumonia. 🙌🏾” We are beyond grateful for all your prayers for Dw and the rest of us.  I know some even fasted – thank you!  Dw is slowly…

We Could Use Some Prayer

Well friends, our family could use some prayer. Dw has been battling something for about 10 days…it started slow and we thought it was probably his seasonal allergies. We were already practicing social distancing because of CV19. Truly, when you have medically fragile kids and an immune-compromised family you know that social distancing is what…
