Petrified Wood

Have you ever seen petrified wood? Do you know how petrified wood is made? These strong, beautiful rocks were once a tree. Imagine a tree has fallen in the woods. It is dead. It will gradually decay unless another process begins – to petrify the wood. Our particular tree is buried in the mud. This i...

Baby Geese

I have been watching a family of geese for the past few weeks. What fun! Five tiny goslings are “in school” under their parents’ watchful eyes. Those goslings faithfully follow their parents anywhere. God made them that way. It is so sweet to watch the geese swim together. One parent leads, the othe...

Your Father LOVES You!

This morning I was taking a walk and called my two cats to come with me. They did, trailing behind me. After a bit, I stopped, leaned down, and with two outstretched hands, I called them to come closer. One of them, the older, came right away and enjoyed the gentleness of my hand on her fur. She was...

God's Waves and Breakers

One of my favorite passages has been Psalm 42:7. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. So poetic. I imagined a gentle, warm wave of love completely enfolding me. One of those peaceful, golden sunset moments. Can you hear the soft music pla...

I love to sit and gaze at my flower garden first thing in the morning, watching hummingbirds and butterflies enjoy its nectar. Just seeing it fills me with peace. Whenever I walk by, I can’t help but pull a few weeds. I love putting my hand to it and continually taking care of it. My flower garden i...

A Legacy

Early one morning, before anyone else was awake, I decided to nurture my artistic side. I went outside, gazed at my colorful bed of Black-eyed Susan flowers, and picked the one that caught my eye. I brought it inside and, looking at it so very carefully, proceeded to draw it, piece by piece. (If you...

My Plant

When I woke up this morning, something caught my eye on our porch. I discovered that my favorite plant (New Guinea Impatiens) was horribly wilted and near death. The leaves had changed and were completely limp and curled. The stems, no longer rigid, hung down. I felt terrible – and guilty. It was my...
