I can hear in my memories Mama playing our old upright piano and singing beautifully, "Fill My Cup, Lord, I lift it up, Lord," with all her heart. Her left-handed playing was unusual and I loved hearing it. Thanks to her love for sitting down to the piano and singing southern Gospel and the old … Continue reading Fill My Cup, Lord
It has been a while since I last posted. I didn't realize so much time had passed. My leave of absence from posting wasn't planned, but a much-needed time for sorting through some things in my life. These past couple of years have been rough for a lot of people. I needed to understand what … Continue reading Encounters of Blessing

I have to be honest. I haven't really been balanced or centered as far as my writing ever since Mama went Home over two years ago. I have been wandering in a sense, easily losing my focus. This has affected my writing this blog, my author page, and my book, "The Sailor's Legacy." Mama was … Continue reading Looking Back to Move Forward
