growth

Usually I file and clip  and hear the choppy  snip snip snip…  but now they’ve grown  and I can’t stop staring  ’cause it looks like press-on nails  I’m wearing  I have let my nails grow and they are reaching enormous lengths!  It’s not something I normally do, because when I play piano they break easily…but […]

I Wonder as I Wander

1. I wonder as I wander out under the sky, How Jesus the Savior did come for to die. For poor on’ry people like you and like I… I wonder as I wander out under the sky. 2. When Mary birthed Jesus ’twas in a cow’s stall, With wise men and farmers and shepherds and […]

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 […]

I realized today…

I realized today that I am completely addicted to my smart phone- and I don’t like it. Not one little bit. When my girls were little, I intentionally only used it when I needed to.  Same with the laptop.  I didn’t want them to have to compete with electronics for my attention. Fast forward 13 […]

Help Us Accept Each Other (a hymn remake)

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all […]

The Secret

I remember years ago, when I first started taking piano lessons, how frustrated I would get.  I had been picking out chords and melodies by ear for several years before I actually began taking lessons.  It was so hard for me to train myself to follow all the new “rules” my piano teacher gave me.
