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”

The Pencil

We were taking a lazy drive on a Sunday afternoon. Mom was in the passenger seat, Dad was driving, and I was seated in the back seat. A pencil rolled out from underneath the driver seat by my feet. I picked it up and said excitedly, ‘Hey, I found a pencil, is it yours, Dad?’Continue reading “The Pencil”

The second hand

There are several of us gals that meet together for a woman’s bible study over zoom every Thursday afternoon. Those who attend live miles apart, some in Connecticut and some in Pennsylvania. We go to different churches and are spread apart, but what we have in common is that we seek companionship and Christian fellowshipContinue reading “The second hand”

In His Hands

As a little girl, I had chubby little hands. They had creases in the palms and were so soft and squishy. I love to notice the little chubby hands and feet of babies. So soft and so perfect, with ten little fingers and ten little toes. How many of you look at the hands andContinue reading “In His Hands”

Please don’t misinterpret what I’m saying because I didn’t pretend to be sick when I wasn’t. However,Continue reading “The Pearl Necklace”

Tell me a story

Everybody loves a good story. Stories are an age-long form of putting our children to sleep, entertainment, history gathering, and passing on ideas to other people. I love to tell stories to others. A story can be told anywhere, at church, with family or friends, or in the workplace. Some of my most fond memoriesContinue reading “Tell me a story”

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”
