We are walking through Hebrews at church and this week’s teaching on chapter 2 brought up a question that had me wrestling for an answer. “…we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honour because he suffered death, so that by the grace…

No-one says “Good Morning” quite like God. Those mornings when the sky is in perfect cloudy-mode forming a filter that flings a ribbon of dawn colour across the wooded horizon that borders Rigsby Lane. The sun hasn’t quite come up, it will do so a little later, so I’m accompanied by a rosy veil reaching…

Yes, I still use a bar of soap. Liquid soap, in the shower, just doesn’t cut it…I’ve still not moved on to sponges or other soft, scrubby things that swish over my body creating lots of bubbles and soapy foam. I’m quite content with old fashioned, hard soap! My preferred brand is Yardley, particularly Lavender….

A year ago when we had our bridge re-worked on the lane, the charming drive down the hill, overhung with tree branches, hugged by tightly meshed undergrowth and brightened with the wildest and hardiest of flowers, was completely laid waste. I wondered if it would ever grow back? For a year it remained depleted.  Nothing…

I never thought of horses lying down. When they’re grazing in a field they’re standing up, heads down munching happily, moving from place to place…all day! Of course they’re non ruminant so they don’t clump together on the grass, legs tucked beneath them, chewing the cud and shooting the breeze like the cows and bulls…

All creatures great and small grow up too fast. And I’m not only talking about my two grand-daughters. My neighbour’s dogs, whom I give biscuits to as I’m passing, have been such a source of joy for me. Who can resist these two little bundles of fur with their big sister, Henny, entrusted to, “Train…

I had a rare weekend off, it was Hubs’ birthday, so I took him on a trip. When Daughts heard where we were going she said, “Ooh, can you bring us home some Hibiscus Cider from Black Apple Brewery?” “Sure,” we said. I’d read the small city we were going to was a hidden gem,…

During this summer we have done a lot of work on our Barndominium to get it ready to accommodate a responsible couple who will appreciate the beauty of rural living. One of the first things Hubs tackled was the repairing of a leak at the top of the hot water heater which entailed him having…

One evening we heard the familiar yowl of a cat inviting someone for a wrestling match, or a game of chase or a bit of TLC from his favourite human. We ignored it until it turned nasty and then Hubs whistled loudly. The fracas stopped and then almost immediately started up again. We headed out…

I decided to make this summer count instead of simply melting . I’ve already written about the crowns and implant I had done at my favourite dentist. The next port of call was to the Cardiac Centre of Texas where I met the most delightful doctor, clad in full Muslim attire with a mask so…
