01.24.23 It Feels Like a Totally Different Life

Another Kelli Bachara post hit me between the eyes today so I am sharing it below.  A little over two years ago my husband Roy passed away suddenly.

I've had heart-sinking experiences and… Continue reading 01.24.23 It Feels Like a Totally Different Life

01.15.23 This Christmas season 2022

2022 felt like a whirlwind. Slowing down was in order if we were to enjoy the Christmas season.  Getting sick with pneumonia, an upper respiratory tract infection, out of control diabetes, kidney problems, dehydration, and low blood pressure weren't my first choice for causing me to slow down but it sure did that! Our Senior… Continue reading 01.15.23 This Christmas season 2022

I can’t wait…I can't wait until he is well and conscious…I can't wait until he hears the stories… The stories of how an amazing first responder team resurrected his failed heartbeat while millions held their breath… How grown men wept in horror at what they had seen, then dropped to their knees beseeching God to… Continue reading 01.04.23 I can’t wait….

12.14.22 Why a Manger?

Perhaps it wasn’t just a coincidence that Jesus was born in a manger. It’s not like He didn’t know the Inn would be full. But, why a manger? Perhaps… it’s because a manger isn’t intimidating. It’s humble. So, so very humble. A manger, unlike a King’s palace or a King’s throne, is accessible to anyone.… Continue reading 12.14.22 Why a Manger?
