Land of temptation

Day 3 from my book “On the Way” We face temptation everyday from everything to overeating, buying those shoes you can’t afford, or choosing social media over reading your Bible. The list is long and distinguished. Your temptations may not be my temptations but they are temptations none the same. Had I been Eve I … Continue reading Land of temptation

ENJOYING GOD

The first part of the verse in Genesis 3:8 says, “And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day.” My pastor calls it sanctified imagination, but go back with me to the beginning, before the first sin, and imagine what it must have been like … Continue reading ENJOYING GOD

Discerning the voice of god BY PRISCILLA SHIRER

It’s been a while. Every Monday I wake up and say, “This is the week I’m going to start writing again.” But before I know it, Friday afternoon rolls around and I haven’t written a thing. “What have I done all week?” I wonder to myself. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not sitting around twiddling … Continue reading Discerning the voice of god BY PRISCILLA SHIRER

Finding Yourself – Day 5 – On the Way

Who am I? What am I doing here? God what do you want me to do? Questions asked by thousands. Questions I’ve asked thousands of times. It’s called an identity crisis.

Down by the River – Day 4 – On the Way

Snap shots of days gone by and then just like that they are married and raising kids of their own, making Kevin and I LaLa and Pop Pop. It’s hard letting go and letting them spread their wings and fly. I remember the day I dropped each of them off at college dorm rooms and … Continue reading Down by the River – Day 4 – On the Way

Where the wild things are – Day 3 – On the Way

The wild rumpus just ended at my house.   Before a game of living room football.     After a game of living room football. Pop Pop is all time quarterback, Asher and Lucas switch offense and defense. Lucas of course has to Odell Beckham a catch or two, because the living room is such … Continue reading Where the wild things are – Day 3 – On the Way

Home Sweet Home – Day 2 – On the Way

That’s my son, 12 month old Landry Jones. He’s looking pretty angelic right there I gotta tell ya, but swirling behind those big brown eyes were thoughts of how to escape out of those knickers and uncomfortable hat his mom had dressed him in. Landry was born mover and a shaker. Snippets of childhood videos … Continue reading Home Sweet Home – Day 2 – On the Way

Lost and Found – Day 1

I know. I know. You don’t even have to say it. I have four of the most handsome grandsons a LaLa could ever want. I recently went with their parents to Tulsa’s “The Gathering Place.” I gotta tell you I was a little overwhelmed. The phrase, “It takes a village,” took on new meaning for … Continue reading Lost and Found – Day 1

Our never ending story

“Kellye, you do realize just because you have an empty space on the wall, you don’t have to hang a picture there.” Kevin and I spent the summer remodeling our lake house and I kinda got carried away with the decorating. There were days when amazon packages were stacked to the top of our front … Continue reading Our never ending story

Life’s messy

“What on earth did you do to your feet?” Kevin asked alarmingly. Scared, I looked down and saw they were black and blue. I immediately did a mental recollection of my day trying to remember twisting my ankle, falling, or dropping a rock on them. Then I remembered. I’m a DIY’er these days. #theyshould’venevershownme what … Continue reading Life’s messy
