testimony and trepidation

If you’ve been around from the beginning, you know this blog was borne through many sleepless nights. I had a time where I just could not sleep and thought that writing out some of the stuff swirling about in my head might help. The sleepless nights come and go now, but I’ve had a few…… Continue reading testimony and trepidation

vanishing act

If you’ve been around this blog for awhile, you’ll see a definite pattern. I’ll be writing strong and steady for a time, then I’ll seem to disappear from the face of the earth.

easter feasting

Is it just me, or does food bring people together in a special way? There is something wonderful about sharing your table and the fruits of your labours (or someone else’s for that matter). Conversation flows more naturally and small silences go unnoticed as we enjoy the meal. Years ago, we would split the time…… Continue reading easter feasting
