Dealing with Travel Anxiety

 March 21, 2019

Do you suffer from travel anxiety? I suspect it is more common than I first thought. As I sat on my flight from LA to Detroit, I noticed a number of fellow travelers ordering drinks, two at a time. That’s one way of dealing with travel anxiety. Not how I handle travel anxiety, though. I’m […]

When God Says, Slow Down!

 March 14, 2019

What do you do when God says, slow down? Do you argue? “But I’m too busy doing your work to slow down. How could you ask me to do this?” Do you bargain? “I’ll slow down as soon as I finish this project or this event.” Of course, there will always be another project or […]

Travelling with a Toddler – Melbourne

 March 8, 2019

Australia was not on my bucket list for travel. There are so many places I’ve yet to see. When my husband would bring up the subject I was like—too far! Why travel there? But when my daughter was transferred to Melbourne and needed help moving, of course I came. So now I have experienced travelling […]

The Joy in Doing One Thing at a Time

 February 20, 2019

Something strange has happened over the last few weeks. Perhaps it was the winter cold and snow, turning my blood into slow-flowing molasses in my veins. (Think of it as playing a 78rpm record at 33rpms for those of you old enough to remember what this is.) Perhaps it just because I’m growing older. Or […]

A Lesson from the Ostrich – Job 38:17

 February 13, 2019

Each Monday morning I spend an hour in quiet contemplation at the adoration chapel at St. Joseph church. I love this time. Time to just sit with God and see what God has in store for me. I usually read the psalm that I am blogging about that week. Little did I expect to learn […]

Merry Christmas

 December 24, 2018

“On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines, of rich food filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear. And he will destroy on this mountain the shroud that is cast over all peoples, the sheet that is spread over all […]

A Writer’s Nightmare

 December 21, 2018

Have you ever dreamed that you opened up Microsoft Word and all of your documents were gone? That happened to me and it wasn’t a dream. It was a real-life writer’s nightmare. I didn’t panic because I knew I had backed up my files to an external hard drive recently. I had also saved my […]

NaNoWriMo 2018

 December 4, 2018

NaNoWriMo 2018 is done. I now have 52,501 words as the basis for book eight of my Dancing through Life series. It’s a wonder to me that I made it, as ill-prepared as I was going into the month. There’s something about having a public goal and knowing so many other writers have that same […]

Birthplace of the Republican Party – Jackson, MI

 November 9, 2018

One of Jackson County Michigan’s claims to fame is that it is the birthplace of the Republican Party. (There is some dispute over this with Ripon, Wisconsin. Click here to learn more.) Another but lesser known claim to fame is its role in the Underground Railroad. The two are related, as I learned through my […]
