How We Forget and Why

If you are looking for knowledgeable answers this post will be a disappointment to you...it is more an analysis of what I think happens in life and a few of the causes.

Maybe you don't get off kilter as I do in relationships and in staying humble and kind and joyful. Maybe you aren't bothered with deep thoughts and the pressures of those who don't have deep thoughts...(don't worry, I know my personality can be a drain to those who aren't nagged with "thoughts".) I don't even blame you. I drain myself. :)

Here goes nothing...

1. I think we forget truth and God's morals when we get too heavily involved in politics. We get so wrapped up in our own thinking we forget to take into account what God thinks about the currant news, then say a bunch of stuff that is mostly strong opinions and added chaos. Brilliant.

2. It seems that we forget politeness and good manners and communication skills since the advent of Facebook and Twitter and that thing of beauty, …

Summer...and the Stuff We Do

On the long drive home from Florida, I had much time to contemplate my house and home making skills and the lack of organization in it. My excuse has been that I teach and have not the time to tinker and fritter away time with cleaning and organizing and the like. But sitting there quietly in my seat, my brain began to wriggle and squirm with ideas of what I could do once we arrived home. 
First thing on my list was finding an office space for my- in- nursing- school- husband. Our house is small so this was a little bit challenging. I don't watch Fixer Upper for nothing though. And I am brave. Sometimes.
Anyway. I went to a cute little shop downtown and found this sweet old, wooden, gun box. I fell in love instantly because it is old and wooden, and because it looked purposeful being a shelf and container to hold things at the same time.

It wasn't in the best of shape but it was inexpensive and I knew with a bit of scrubbing it would be perfect.



The best part was hiding it for two…

Vacation Part 2

After a long day of sailing, Dave and Laura Shirk, relatives of Bruce, met us on their boat and guided us to a dock they had requested of friends for us. These kind people let us tie our boat at their private dock for three more days so we could take people sailing there in Sarasota.


Our boat was tied just a couple houses down from this beautiful home.


Dave and Laura took us and all our luggage on to their boat and then we went out for a lovely dinner on the water...afterward they delivered us to Bruce's parents house where we were reunited with our kiddoes.


Why are sunsets so pretty on the water?


We were able to take Bruce's Grandpa Good sailing!


And experience taking a golf cart to the drug store...with Grandpa Good driving...which is a miracle in itself that it was all done so safely. 😁 He's good at this golf cart driving...but scary.


Bruce's parents took us to many restaurants while we were there; Der Dutchman twice, because his mom works there...


There was a man there m…

Warning! Serious photo dump in process... They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I have about 29,000 right here...

May 31, 2017...7:00 A.M.


At our first boat check station in Troy, Montana, I discovered this in my back window...at least we look like we mean it...


In Thomson Falls, Montana we experienced a great thud and grinding noises... We got off the road and two minutes later, God sent this kind gentleman to aid and assist. Pretty crazy of us, but we did not have the proper jack or tire iron to fix a flat, so this man was definitely a God send seeing he had the proper tools. Also we went directly to a tire shop and got better equipped after we got the spare on.

Lesson Day 1: God provides magnificently at all times. Why do we ever worry?


Out the window...all day was a pleasure...


1st night we slept in the boat off the road...then awoke to this sunrise and traveled country roads for a good part of the next day...


I love country roads...great spots for picnics...




Yes, there were mome…
