Like None Other

As I awoke this morning, my brother was on my mind.  Last night, I drove to Sapulpa to  have dinner with him.  That has become a ritual over the last year and a half, since Terrie  died.   About every two weeks, I head that way for just an hour or so.  Just some time to fill my need to be near family.

 

Last night, his youngest daughter went with us to have catfish.  We had a great time together, laughing, and telling stories.  My niece commented on how great it was to hear my brother and I exchange quips.  We have the same type of humor.  We seem to think along the same lines of thought.   We are much alike, but still our own .

Things I Don’t Understand……Women Whispering

Whispering Dog-300Literally, I don’t understand when women start to whisper, because they drop their voices so terribly low, I’m not sure even a dog could hear them without wondering, “What did she say?”

Now I will give you I don’t have the hearing I used to have because of musical choices I made when I was younger.  Jimi Hendrix and Steppenwolf on cranked up Pioneer headphones while I was doing my work, cost me some drop in my old age, but not that much.

“83 More Miles With Jesus: The Journey Continues”

Sometimes you think the journey is over, but only to find out the Lord allowed you to have a respite, a time to heal and get stronger.  A time to learn and a time to share.  That’s where I have been for the last six months.  I was in a beautiful oasis.

In July of last year, I wrote 83 More Miles With Jesus. 

 

In that post, I listed many frustrations Continue reading
