WELCOME TO MY BLOG SITE...My Little Corner of the World!

Hello Everyone and Welcome!

I hope you will join me here often to read thoughts expressed by myself and others on what we feel is important to becoming a more Godly person. We all have our own ideas of what contributes to our character and how we become what we are, but as most of us in these blog pages, we want to share what is or has been important in our lives. Sometimes it's just venting, and sometimes it's wanting to share something we feel is profound. For whatever reason, I am moved to share with YOU, and hope that you will be a follower who gains something by reading these blogs. If you feel that others might benefit from reading it, please invite them in. Please feel free to comment, and I'd love to hear from you, and to know what is important to YOU. Thank you for stopping by, and may God bless you and help you in your endeavors to grow and become more like Him each day.

About Me

My photo
Airway Heights, WA, United States
I'm a retired lady who is enjoying writing to help others. My husband and I have 4 children, 14 grandchildren (1 is in heaven), 7 great grandsons and 3 great granddaughters. We enjoy riding ATVs & camping, and spending time with family & friends. In the past I have been a church youth leader, cub scout and 4H leader, and studied under the Sitka Christian Counselor's Assoc. My first book "Father, Forgive My Father" was published in 2005, and you will see references to it throughout my blogs. Now I'm writing magazine articles & building my platform for my book. Currently I am enjoying being on talk radio interviews. I am also available to present my workshop "Becoming God's Woman" to church and women's groups. My greatest desire is to see people set free from the bondage of sexual child abuse and become healed and free children of God, ready to soar to new heights of victory and have life more abundantly. THIS is what God wants for His children. In the new year 2012, I intend to write more frequently on this blog, so visit us often.

Hi Everyone, and a Happy 2011 New Year to you all!!  A friend just sent this to me in an email, and I thought it was an appropriate time to share it with you...especially since we are all trying to make those New Year's resolutions.  It is true...we can spend all our time dusting, and miss the important things we should or could be doing...like spending more time with our families.   Please read, enjoy, and take this to heart.
I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure 
things were just perfect in case someone came over. 
Finally I realized one day that no one came over; they were all 
out living life and having fun! 

NOW, when people visit, I don't bother making excuses for the
condition of my home.  They are more interested in hearing about
the things I've been doing in the time I used to spend cleaning.   
If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice:

Dust if you must .... 
but would it be better
to paint a picture or write a letter,
bake some cookies or plant a seed,  
ponder the difference 'tween want and need?

Dust if you must....
but there's not much time 
with wine to drink and mountains to climb
music to hear and books to read,
friends to cherish and life to lead.  
Dust if you must...  
but the world's out there
with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
This day will not come around again. 

Dust if you must...
but bear in mind, 
old age will come and it's not kind.  
And when you go -- and go you must --
you, yourself, will just make more dust! 

Share this with all the wonderful women in your life.  I  JUST DID. 
It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life
you have lived. 
LADIES!!! Remember...a  layer of dust protects the wood beneath it.
A house becomes a home when you can write 'I love you' on the furniture.
Life is short.  Enjoy it!

"The only people who are truly free are the ones who walk in a spirit of continual forgiveness."

  1. Hi Sandy... Thanks for visiting my blog! I also have 4 children...but you beat me in the grand parenting game, as I only have 5 and I am not sure there will be more! What a joy they are to me! I always knew I was born to be a mom but now I am sure I was wrong because it's the role of Meme I am really loving! I agree that a house in not a home if you can't write I love you in the dust! Have a happy week!
