When Something Touches Your Soul

Have you ever had a smell, a touch, a sight, a sound, or even a taste touch your soul?  Such a poignant touch that tears start to fall, or you revel in a sweet memory this sense brings back to your mind?  I’ve experienced this before, and I had it happen again on Saturday.

Let me explain and share my moment…

I was sitting with my morning cup of coffee, listening to Sirius XM – The Message and the song ‘You Raise Me Up‘ by Selah came on.  My husband and I were in the middle of a conversation and tears just started to flow down my cheeks.  He looked at me with a questioning look on his face, as we weren’t having any kind of earth shattering conversation, and all I could do was shrug my shoulders.  “It’s the song”, was all I could say.  Why?  I have no idea.  I don’t remember when I last heard it or why it was so poignant to me.  But sometimes we don’t have all the answers, do we?

In His hands…we’re all in His hands.  And what a comfort that is.

Good times or bad, He’s with us.  Whether we feel Him there or not…He’s there.

May God bless all of you on this Sunday.

He sure has blessed me.

Sunday Blessings…

I admit it, I’m too tired to write a full post tonight.

Instead, I’m sharing my favorite blessing which is sung by our beautiful choir at the end of our church service.

(yes, I quietly sing along)

I hope this brings you into a wonderful week!

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

An Incredible Compliment

Samantha gave me an incredible compliment the other day.

She told me the following story:

“At Bible Study last night, we were talking about suffering and how difficult it is to Glorify God through it, and then the leader asked us if we had ever been able to do that or if we knew anybody who had been able to.”

“And Mom, I thought of you.” Read more


I won’t be blogging for a couple of days, so I’d like to offer up a few things I’ve learned.

Life’s short..

Take time to rest (I know I will).


Take time to enjoy your family – young and old.

Ask questions of them.  Listen to their stories.  Write them down for future generations.

Find an antique or vintage piece and think about it’s past…think about how someone loved it so much they bought it and put it in a special place in their house.  As my nephew who owns The Inventorialist in Indianapolis, IN says:  “It’s lived an authentic life.” (See him at: Read more

Shine On, Grandma, Shine On!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words…

Let’s see just how true that is…

Oh the stories behind this picture…

First off, let’s start with the vintage toasters, which don’t show up very well in this pic.  There’s a cute little scroll mark on the front.

I found them at the dump, with the cords cut off, and quickly snapped them up – putting them in our truck.  As I write this, I laugh, thinking about the look on my husbands face. Read more
