2017 Non-resolutions


I'm doomed to fail at my New Year's resolutions, but still I think about setting goals for how I would like to change my habits in the next 12 months. So here are some of my thoughts from earlier this...

Good Things in 2016


The last few months of 2016 left many people feeling as if the year itself was an active agent of evil, and the sooner we kicked it to the curb, the better. I felt a little of that, too, although...

At the Moment


Outside my window... the sun is shining brightly, but it’s only 32 I am thinking ... that it would be a shame to run the vacuum and disturb my cat snoozing peacefully in the sun I am thankful for ......

I Need a Little Christmas, Right This Very Minute


Psalm 100 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into His presence with singing! Know that the Lord, He is God! It is He who made us, and we are His;...

Still Hooked


I haven’t written anything about my crochet projects since April 2014. Rereading that post, I realize that I have tackled more than a few of the items I had wanted to try: A couple of afghans — as an apartment-warming...

My Garden: A Season of Neglect


I’ve written about my gardening successes and failures in this space before, but I've never been this discouraged. I’ve never ignored the garden as much as I have this summer. There are good reasons, at least in my mind. We...

Upper Peninsula Explorations


For five of the last six years, my husband and I have spent several of our vacation days in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Our “base of operations” is Munising, at the Holiday Inn Express, which commands a sweeping view of Grand...

Abiding in the Word


Like most Christians who love the Bible, I have often struggled with having a daily “quiet time,” several minutes a day set aside for Bible reading, study and prayer. Our fathers and mothers in the faith tell us that early...

New Things: A Housework Plan


I’m one of those women who love the benefits of a clean home, but hate to clean. I believe that King Solomon was inspired by the sight of his servants endlessly dusting the palace treasures when he wrote, “I have...

The Wedding of the Century


Did you know that we had a little wedding this summer? Could there be a mother alive who doesn’t think that her own daughter’s wedding was the most beautiful, magical and romantic event in the history of weddings? My daughter...

Our New (to Us) Approach to Eating


The DASH diet has been around a long time. I just learned of it in January, when it was again named one of the best diets in the country by U.S. News & World Report. DASH is an acronym for...

All Things Made New


I started 2015 with a theme Scripture and a list of goals for the year: “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.” 2 Cor. 5:17 Go...

Re-creating a Food Memory


Chocolate pie with a graham cracker crust is my husband’s favorite. He often mentions how his grandma used to serve him up a big slice with a bottle of cream soda. I’ve made it before, but I always felt as...

2014 Garden Report Card


If I had to grade myself on this year’s garden, I’d give myself a C-minus. Maybe. Certainly the weather was no help. Following on the heels of the bitterly cold and snowy winter of 2013-14, the spring was late and...

When Women's Work Was Essential


It’s been a pleasure this summer to reread the whole series of “Little House” books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Although the books are written at a grade-school level, they vividly capture the simple joys and hardships of American pioneer life...
