this only do I seek

It might sound a little strange, but I think a lot about heaven and what it will be like. I can’t even wrap my mind around it, but I know the joy I experience when I spend time in His presence… and to experience joy like that for eternity- well, that’s going to be nothing short of AMAZING!!

make the time

on a weathered bench I play  minutes…hours… half a day! How I wish  to pause the time  play the day away  on this piano of mine! Every year when the Christmas season is over, I always wish I had spent more time playing through my favorite Christmas piano books. Not this year! I am determined to […]

Windows

Separate  inside from out  behind curtains  we peek out   illumination  cannot hide the life that carries on  inside  I have been thinking a lot about windows. I have always loved glancing into windows of the homes we pass by when we drive through neighborhoods. Shakespeare said it best- “Eyes are the windows to your soul”. […]
