It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (December 2015)

Tuesday, December 15, 2015.  I haven’t posted an update in a couple of months, perhaps because three deaths in the family occurred recently. And, while the passing of these three individuals, my youngest sister, one of my brothers-in-law, and the mother of a different brother-in-law, I would like to share the beautiful way that God is […]

Shattered Glass

Before the spinning, out of control, the shattered glass flying,  and my brain rolling upside-down… I’d set an alarm to wake myself from dreaming, splash water on my face, and throw on my fashion of the day, as I downed dripped coffee, and dash into the frenzied machinations of the weekly blur of the marketplace.

I’ve only slept three hours in two days! The reason: pure pain from intense itching. You see, I’ve been the victim of a vicious, three-pronged attack: mosquitos, […]

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (April 2015)

Sunday, April 19, 2015. Spring has sprung, as they say, in all its fine glory. And, it’s a very welcome time of refreshing, renewal and change. One spectacularly nice sign of renewal has come in the form of an owl nest in our yard. As my husband climbed up a ladder to the top of […]
