On the Other Hand...

On the Other Hand...


I could just ignore the pain in my thumb

for it seems a mere mosquito bite,

a small irritation when compared

to others with far worse injuries

or ailments.


But, on the other hand, I can seek help

from trained medical professionals

well experienced in their field

who can diagnose this little



I could just complain, rant and rave

and make life miserable…

Cross in the Clouds

My daughter and saw a cross in the clouds yesterday in Ocala, FL. It had already begun to change before I could get my phone out to snap a picture, but it sure was something special to behold!

The Arms of a Friend

The Arms of a Friend

It seems there are times when faith isn't enough

to handle the burdens we carry,

when solace is found in the arms of a friend

or the loving companion we married.

Though the love of God is always there,

sometimes it seems He just shrugs

and leaves it up to the arms of a friend

to pull us in close for a hug.

When turmoil seems to surround you

and nothing is turning out right,

leave it up to the arms of a… Continue

One Stitch at a Time

One Stitch at a Time

Friendships are made one stitch at a time.

A feeling of comfort so hard to define,

like a fine old quilt is soft and warm,

friendships enfold and then conform.

Friendships surround, yet set us free

so each person can be what she must be.

Together they grow and soon both find

that friendships are made one stitch at a time.

July 4th - Independence Day

As was mentioned in our church service this morning, it's a shame so many of us celebrate this day just for the picnics, cookouts, beer, and fireworks rather than celebrating the birth of our nation and honoring all those who have given their time, their love, and their lives to keep us as free and independent as possible. All of us here should strive to be good:

A nation under God

M oving always toward… Continue

Those Quiet Times

Those Quiet Times

May you always have a needle

And a full supply of thread

So your hands will not be idle

And your spirit will be fed.

For in those quiet times,

With a quilt upon your lap,

You find the time to talk to God

As you piece those little scraps;

And you find the time to listen

To what he has to say

When he tries to lift your heavy heart

And soothe your cares away.

And in those quiet times

When communion… Continue

Our Favorite Things

Our Favorite Things

Families together,
Bright sunny weather,
Squirrels nesting,
And Santa resting,
Scent of fresh pine,
Shoppers in line,
Good friends to greet,
With sentiments sweet,
Turkey and dressing,
Asking the blessing...
These are the things
That make our hearts sing
When November is here
And December is near!

To Be In Love With Love

To Be In Love With Love

To be in love with love

is to be in love with life...

to look forward to the

adventures of the journey,

to frolic in the swell of the waves

and then relax as they subside...

to not dwell upon the worry,

or the sadness, or the strife

but to accept it only briefly

not allowing it to reside,

but let it go.

To be in love with love

is to have a romantic soul...

to hear the longing

in… Continue

Word Dancing With God

Word Dancing With God

I'll never hold you in my arms

as I would a mortal man,

But through the words you give me

beside you I can stand.

I'll never waltz or jitterbug

with you my partner bold,

But through the words you give me,

I can see our dance unfold.

With your steady hand to guide me,

my steps are always sure,

A rhythmic celebration of

your love so fine and pure.

My words tap… Continue

Quilting Angels

Quilting Angels

Somewhere up in heaven’s realm,

a golden quilt frame stands,

and a host of quilting angels

sit with thimble and needle in hand.

Taking threads of rainbow hue,

they quilt a great design

where all their names are clearly sewn

in the woof and weave of time.

And there are several empty chairs

awaiting sister quilters

where you and I will someday sit

when through His gates we… Continue

Our Quilt of Life

Our Quilt of Life

If we stitch with care our quilt of life,
each seam may handle stress and strife.
Yet some stitches go and some we keep
in making each lovely block complete.
So as each day rolls slowly ‘round,
may all your threads be strong and sound,
and may the block you quilt today
be one you’ll always want to save!
