OUR MINDS. They’re recording devices, aren’t they? Tape recorders. DVR’s. They take it all in and keep it. Whatever “it” may be. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel as though my brain can’t possibly hold more! Sometimes, I want to dump some […]


Sleepless in Kentucky

I can’t sleep. Can I stay here with You? You’re the reason I can’t sleep anyway, You know. I mean, I tried to sleep. But I was just keeping my husband awake with all the trying… the tossing and turning and shifting. But You’re heavy […]

It’s finally happened. For the first time since spring, it’s too chilly to sit on my front porch without a jacket. The gray clouds match the chilly breeze stirring the trees and my wind chime. As I sit here in my WKU hoodie (go Toppers!) […]

When You Least Expect It

Sometimes, I don’t know why a particular song is in my head when I wake up. That’s okay, though, because God is always showing me something through the music. Today is different. Today, I know why my spirit is flooded with music about grace, specifically […]

I’ve never been to Niagara Falls. I’ve always wanted to go, and I hope to get there some day. I’ve been to several other waterfalls including Hawaii and Tennessee. In Kentucky, Cumberland Falls is beautiful! I love walking behind the waterfall… Standing back there with […]

Eyes on the Prize

The sun shining through my studio window belies the sadness I feel. I can’t explain why I feel sad today… I don’t really have a reason. Maybe melancholy is a better word, but it’s there nonetheless. I woke up with Love & The Outcome singing […]

Every Day

Every day.  Every morning that I am blessed to wake up again, I have a song in my head.  Sometimes it’s a well-known, popular song, sometimes its an oldie, sometimes it’s a song I remember from my childhood.  And sometimes it’s a brand new song… […]


Jesus Sticks!!

Who loves you? No, seriously. Who in your life do you know, without a doubt, loves YOU? Even when they don’t want to love you? Even when you’re being difficult? Even when you wouldn’t blame them if they didn’t love you? Even when you don’t […]

Lay it down

It’s quiet and cool this morning. Cloudy, but not raining yet. As I sit on my front porch reading, the yard has filled with birds. Doves, robins, killdeer, sparrows, chickadee, blackbirds, jays. We had lots of rain yesterday, so they’re all out hunting and finding […]
