OBSERVANT He who has eyes to see…he who has ears to hear… Pretty much all that is needed to be observant is to have eyes and ears. Well, that’s part of what you need. Each of us has the ability to observe all that is going on around us. We see each other, we canContinue reading “OBSERVANT”


EXPERIENCE Experience seems to be a lost art these days. I remember that I would often go to a person and ask them how to, or what did you do, or how did you handle…and had a conversation with that person about their experience.  Most of the time, that person was an older friend or relative,Continue reading “EXPERIENCE”


ONCE (upon a time) The Five Minute Friday word this week is “once”.   The familiar phrase that begins all fairytales is, “Once upon a time”, and that is where my thoughts led this Five Minute Friday, not to familiar fairytales I’ve read, but to those “once’s” that have happened in my life, memories that comeContinue reading “ONCE”


ARGUMENT “But God, I don’t really want to….I can do it on my own….I don’t need your help…”. This is the daily and sometimes moment by moment argument that I have with God.  I think I am capable to do things in my own strength. That I don’t need His help and I don’t want toContinue reading “ARGUMENT”


PREDICAMENT  In my 60 plus years of life, I am not unfamiliar with being in a “predicament”.  Sometimes I have been the source of such a situation, and sometimes the situation has had outside motivators. But, let it be known, any and all predicaments I have been in, I have come through alive, and with, perhaps,Continue reading “PREDICAMENT”


ENERGIZE As most of you know, I teach piano. When I read the word for day 9 of this writing challenge, my thoughts went to my “first time” piano students.  They are truly “energized”, anxious to learn all the new things and are truly excited and attentive to everything about the piano and playing music! TheyContinue reading “ENERGIZE”


EXASPERATED  This has been a year. I’m sure most will all agree. To say the least, we have all reached a point of being exasperated. From dealing with the social effects of this virus, to political views, to the plain hurtful and unkind people with whom we come in contact, exasperation has been at anContinue reading “Exasperated”


EMPHASIS  Definition: special importance, value, or prominence given to something. Having been involved in music for over 50 years, when I saw this word for day 7 of our #write28days challenge, my first thought was about music and how there is an emphasis on the first beat of a measure or how certain dynamic marksContinue reading “EMPHASIS”


A W E  As I pause and take a look in the rear view mirror of my life, there are times when my “awe” of God was clouded. My memories of those moments come slowly. I savor each time they begin to come into focus and  I now stand in awe of a God that caresContinue reading “A W E”


Sunrise Sunrise…the promise of a new day, a new beginning and new mercies.  Going to bed at night, I don’t have to be concerned that there won’t be a sunrise, it just happens. It happens at the right time in every season.  It is a constant that doesn’t change.  For thousands of years the cycle of the sunContinue reading “SUNRISE”
