I am a follower of Christ, Wife, Mom, Teacher, Musician and Artist. I am an observer of people and nature and am working on learning how to truly “live love”. I talk to birds and butterflies, have been known to rescue baby snakes, love to get my hands dirty in the flower garden, and can lay on the sidewalk at night and watch the moon and stars for hours. I just love living!

Do We Really Remember?

My daughter Lauren is truly a gifted writer and I wanted to share with you her amazing words today. We say we remember... but do we? Do we really? Do we remember how hate had no place in the days immediately after 09.11? - love and servanthood was our first response....

Saying ALL the Things – In Honor of My Daddy

100 Years My Daddy would have been 100 years old today. He was born May 24, 1919 and named Reginald Kelly Waggoner. I decided that writing would be a good way to honor him and maybe help a few people along the way. He was named after Kelly Airforce Base in San...

He is Risen!

The lifeless, human body of Jesus was laid in that borrowed tomb.  It was done.  Death had come.  And that was the end of that, right?  I mean death is death.  So when Jesus cried out from the cross, “It is finished”, it really was over.  Well, Yes.  Now stay with...

The Garden of Gethsemane is such a beautiful place. The olive trees, some of them hundreds of years old, stand as a reminder of the incredible history of this garden. A relief sculpture in the area catches my eye. The anguish and pain is captured beautifully by an...

Palm Waiver or Angry Crowd – You Choose

I have decided to revisit some posts from previous years and share with you. I pray that God will speak through them to someone this special week.When you and I came to know and accept Christ, we became palm branch wavers. We are waving the palm branches and crying....


One of my favorite things on Sunday mornings is listening to my church sing praises to God. This morning was no different. We started worship today with the choir and orchestra singing and playing The River is Here. Our choir and orchestra take their responsibility...

Found – Jesus

Some of you read my previous post; Lost - Jesus. If you haven’t and want to, go to Through the Light Fog A few days ago was clean-up day at our house. Time for Christmas decorations to be carefully packed away to wait...

Lost – Jesus

I love Christmas. I love the lights, the decorations, the anticipation of things to come. I love the preparation and excitement. I love seeing and hearing more of the message of Christ in the secular world - even if unintentional. But this year something horrible...

Be the Change

I have watched our country as an enormous storm of evil has rolled in with a vengeance in an attempt to steal, kill, and destroy all that is good and right. What I am seeing is not anything new. The history books tell the story over and over. However, the world is a...
