The Roller Skates

This morning my mind went back to a little house on Beale Avenue in Leechburg, Pennsylvania, where I grew up. I was a six or 7-year-old Candy and was sneaking down the steps one Christmas morning to see if Santa Claus had stopped at our house last night. As I came to the bottom ofContinue reading “The Roller Skates”

I Think I Finally Found My Hallelujah!

Curiously, the chorus of a secular song entitled ‘Good To Be Alive’ by Andy Grammer is resounding and repeating in my head. This song came out about five years ago or so. I don’t listen to the millennial generation music as a rule. After all, I grew up with Motown and oldies! You can’t getContinue reading “I Think I Finally Found My Hallelujah!”

The Yellow Envelope

I’ll admit it, only to you, so please don’t tell anyone. I was feeling a little down in the dumps last week. This feeling is very unusual for me. Usually, I’m very upbeat, optimistic, and am cheering others on with Pom-Pom’s in both hands.  Some of you know that I’ve been having health challenges thatContinue reading “The Yellow Envelope”

What’s your final answer?

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was a popular TV Game Show that attracted a huge audience back in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. The game show was played by contestants answering a series of multiple-choice questions that had a dollar value. For each question they got correct, that dollar value was added to theirContinue reading “What’s your final answer?”

The Lady in the Wheelchair

There was a story going around the internet several years ago that stirred my heart. One day, a little boy wanted to meet God. He packed his suitcase, brought a bag of some drinks and cookies then started his journey. He walked a long, long way until he began to get hungry and tired. HeContinue reading “The Lady in the Wheelchair”

Take the Wheel

Our most recent trip to Florida was 2 years ago. My husband John and I love the water, the sun, floating in an inner tube on a Lazy River. As we were disembarking the plane, we were excited about our future endeavor of relaxing before John’s retirement as a United Methodist Minister, and our plansContinue reading “Take the Wheel”

Don’t stick out your tongue!

Summer evenings at camp is always something I think back upon. The peacefulness of being out in nature, away from the city noises and lights. The stars seemed more plentiful and the lightning bugs were everywhere! One evening I remember very vividly. My Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and I had just finished dinner. Summer dinnersContinue reading “Don’t stick out your tongue!”

Davey and the Mustard Seed

Saturday mornings were my favorite time of the week. I would awaken early, before my Mom and Dad, creep down the stairs, turn on the TV with the knob on the front, change the channel with a dial to one of the three channels that we had. Then I would turn down the volume onContinue reading “Davey and the Mustard Seed”

Red Light, Green Light, and the In-Between Time

Do you remember the Red Light Green Light Game? One person was designated as the police officer. The rest of those playing would be in a horizontal line yards apart, facing the officer. The police officer would shout ‘Green Light’, and everyone started to run toward him. He shouted ‘Red Light’, and all of thoseContinue reading “Red Light, Green Light, and the In-Between Time”
