Just settling down with my second cup of java as the last of my family returned home after a fun-filled, food-filled, week-end.
Our grand-daughter, Krista arrived with her husband Joshua and her brother, our oldest grand-child, Paul after a grueling nearly non-stop drive from Missouri. Paul traveled from Colorado the day before to help them with the drive. That's devotion!
Then the rest of the family began to pour in -- from Philadelphia, Weatherly and Pottsville, PA, Virginia, and our son from Colorado. We had fifteen family members here, missing only four - but truly they were missed.
Laughter, multiple conversations at once, constant meals and snacks, tripping over toys, sorting towels and running the marvelous dish-washer -- what stands out?
Love. We are blessed. Christ is the head of our home.
Welcome to my blog. I hope you will return often for that second cup.
Writing has become more than a way to make lists or keep in touch with friends. It is a vital part of who I am. For the past few years I've been writing essays, devotionals, a memoir, and several novels. I invite you to join me on this site so we can explore ways together to improve our writings. Words can be beautiful or they can be hurtful - even devastating. The well-placed word or phrase, the choice metaphor, a fresh perspective - each can add to the reader's participation in sharing the thoughts of the writer. I invite anyone who wants to improve their work or even if you have never attempted writing beyond a grocery list to return often. Feel free to add your thoughts. There are no grades given - no critics to deter you. We do this as friends - chatting over their second cup of coffee. (or tea, if you prefer.)
