Had a revelation the other day...
Thu, Mar 8 2012 8:50 PM
Had a revelation the other day... When I was in Arizona, Jim and I were at the shopping center where my accident occurred. I had a post traumatic stress episode and just started sobbing and then got angry. I've been to the area several times since my accident and felt nervousness, but have never reacted like this before. Poor Jim had no clue as to what is... Read More...

You, Lord, are God! You have promised these good things to your servant. (1 Chronicles 17:26) He has given me some good things during these last few days in Arizona. It all started on Friday, Feb. 17 at noon with the Quilters Club of America/Reap What You Sew Luncheon held at my church Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Scottsdale. We had a great turnout and I was...

For when I am weak, then I am strong
Mon, Feb 13 2012 12:16 PM
2 Corinthians 12:10 ...For when I am weak, then I am strong. I remembered those words last night. Why? I think I was actually listening to God for a change. I can be pretty "bullheaded" as Grandma Koller used to tell me. When I graduated from lay leadership training and became parish ministry assistant at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Scottsdale, I...

Praise God! I have completed the first part of the RWYS Precious Project and in time for Christmas too! We decided to give them to her husband as a Christmas present for her.

God, What gives with the rain?
Mon, Dec 12 2011 11:32 PM
Lord, I woke up this morning to rain beating on the roof. What's with that? I thought I left all that back in Ohio along with the chilliness. This is no fun especially since I had to go out in it to go to the chiropractor today. She asks on a scale of 1 to 10 how is my pain today. I answer 15!! It's raining...of course, my pain level is high! I came home... Read More...

I lived in Arizona for almost 11 years and the past two years that I've become a snowbird it seems the winters have become colder! What gives? I don't remember the winters being this cold when I lived here. Altho I shouldn't complain considering back home in Ohio it is much, much colder. The snow I left behind has melted and they are getting rain... Read More...
Arizona Here I Come!
Wed, Nov 30 2011 4:57 AM
Less than 24 hours to go! And just in time too...they are predicting 2-3 inches of snow today. YUCK! Oh please, dear sweet Jesus, hold that snow until I get out of here.
