walking with me

on April 26, 2016


stepping in time

we walk in stride

 thankful you 

are by my 



with no one else

I’d rather be- 

all is right 

when you’re walking

with me


I came home the other day to BOTH tv’s sitting on the floor- unplugged.

I’m not ashamed to admit that a wave of panic came over me.  Watching the Today show in the mornings for a short while is a guilty pleasure of mine.  Feet propped up, coffee cup in hand..that is a good morning!


My hubby had tried to switch tv’s around, but it wasn’t working… there was a missing piece that was needed to mount the television on the stand.  So, there would be no tv until we got the part.  IMG_1580

And I have to say- it was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time!  We spent more time talking and sitting with each other than we had in months.  And while the girls were at a sleepover, we woke up early and walked a trail together.  It was a perfect morning.

I have walked this trail many, many times- but I noticed something I had never seen before… IMG_1577

The tree in the above picture is one of my favorites.  It marks the end of trail- the point at which we turn around and go down the mountain.  As I walked past it the other morning, I noticed for the first time that it isn’t just one tree- it is a combination of many trees.


It takes all of them standing side by side to make one GREAT BIG beautiful tree!

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12


I am so thankful for the  many “trees” that have stood with me and supported me throughout the years.  And I am grateful to be walking this journey of life-

with my husband

my family

and my family in Christ…

and you!

    Beautiful! Our internet has been on the fritz, so I relate to that feeling of, “well, what should I do now?” How wonderful it can be when God forces us to unplug.

    So very similar to our walk in life. Blessings are ours all the while, but sometimes never realized.. until He opens our eyes to see.
