A Simplehearted New Year

A Simplehearted New Year

Like so many, the new year is a time that I often reflect back on the past year considering what has worked well- and what hasn’t. It’s a time I look ahead and re-focus. Probably, a little more so than most who create goals for the year, it’s not...
Busting Through Doubts: Paint It! Just Do It!

Busting Through Doubts: Paint It! Just Do It!

One of the reasons I’m loving this new house is the wall color. I admit it. This house has good bones and add the perfect color and oh my! I got to have the house painted my favorite color- D61-1 Morning Fog (Olympic Paint). Busting Through Doubts: Paint it!...
The Doubts of a Man (or Woman) From Missouri

The Doubts of a Man (or Woman) From Missouri

Last week while I was blogging about how we tend to doubt ourselves as scrapbookers, I pulled out my old thesaurus to look up the word doubt. I never know what inspiration I’ll find in it, so I often pull it out- I think that the old book smell along with the...
Amongst the Pine Needles

Amongst the Pine Needles

I started to blog about something very different today. But, as I scrolled through my pictures this morning this one struck me. I have a bunch of shots similar to this from my last trip to the arboretum. It is East Texas in winter after all. There are so many...
Sailing into 2015!

Sailing into 2015!

It’s hard to believe we’re already 5 days into 2015! It’s just sailing right on in. Did you set any goals this year? choose a word to focus on? start any new projects? I really wasn’t planning to choose a word this year but I think one little...
Digital Traces of Life

Digital Traces of Life

This Daily Post prompt made me think about what the files on my hard drive say about me and what will survive over time. Maybe it’s in part because I was thinking about how much things have changed in the world of hunting. I remember when short range walkie...
Real Life & Our Own Quackery

Real Life & Our Own Quackery

Yesterday was Reformation Sunday for us and the sermon made me think about our own falsehoods. The Sermon title was “Quakery vs The Truth.” Maybe it was the urge to clean house before A Week in the Life began (which I didn’t do), some of the things...
Connecting With Life

Connecting With Life

One of the things that I’ve always struggled with is stepping away from the computer to live life. Sounds really geeky, doesn’t it? But, what I really mean is I struggle with finding a balance between my creative aspirations and living the life I want to...
Converging Paths

Converging Paths

This the week. So many paths have led me here and this is the week they converge to forge a new path, a new beginning.  I wrote this a few months back thinking about those many paths. One of the things I keep saying is that I seem to have lost so much of what I...
And Then There Was Blogging Supposed to Happen

And Then There Was Blogging Supposed to Happen

“And then there was music supposed to be played.” That’s what Ben Nichols says at the beginning of the Lucero Family Picnic video from 2013 that I’m listening to. Apparently, it had been storming in Little Rock that day (I’ve seen the...
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26
