The begonias continue to flourish and bloom in the planter in my office. I will be a little sad and somewhat disappointed when and if they fade back. The dark pink blossoms have given me a bit of distraction from the mundane routines all during ... Read more

And the new normal begins....

I have really been distracted by all the grief and turmoil of the last few months. I have, of course, continued to pray and take the one step at a time routine, but now it's becoming time to get up out of the dust and get going on life again. I'... Read more

I woke up this morning to a dusting of snow on the ground. There are times, especially when I donít have to be anywhere at a specific time, when I donít mind seeing weather like this slip in. I heard a weatherman refer to it as Ďsugar coatingí. ... Read more

I have scattered memories of my childhood Christmases. Of course, that was long enough ago that dinosaurs still roamed the earth and we used giant ferns to decorate the halls. I canít remember what age, what year, what the overall season was lik... Read more

I've had the feeling that I'm hanging on by the skin of my teeth...but ...I'm just not making it. I can't seem to focus. I don't care about anything right now. If the food is's in me. I love my family and appreciate the care and concer... Read more

There are many things about Honeyís life that he wasnít proud of. He told me on many occasions that if I really knew him that I wouldnít stay with him. I found it odd that a man who leaned so hard on the Lord and was confident that he was forgiv... Read more

Once grade school was finished, the Locust community bussed their children up the road to Carrolton to finish their middle and high school education. Honey was a little older than Anne and was compared to James Dean a lot in those days. He had t... Read more

As most of you know, especially my daughter, I donít cook. I know how to to some degree or another, but I donít like the process and the cleaning up. But, by the time January rolled around, like most women, I thought it would be romantic to coo... Read more

Folks, I'm so sorry that I have been so unfaithful these last 3 months. I'm just not functioning well at all. I'm writing but not able to process life right now. I'm so thankful for each of you that has tried so hard to keep up and encourage. I'... Read more

My Locust

Wednesday, November 26, 2014      7 comments

More thoughts on Locust: On that first day back on the farm, Honey dared me to go up those steps to the second story. I made it high enough so that I could see through the railing at the top into the room, but didnít go on up. The room was ju... Read more

I just read the responses from yesterday and am so amazed that God has provided such caring people. I am overwhelmed and the advice and concern are so relevant to me today. God is doing a work through this. Last night at the church meeting a gro... Read more
