Because I had been sick, I recently missed doing one of my favorite things. Daddy called and asked if I would be up to helping drop potatoes one Saturday morning or afternoon. Well, of course, I wanted to say, "Yes!" I'd been waiting for this since I knew it's about that time again and … Continue reading Droppin’ Taters
“Get Your Rhythm”
Today was one of those special days to me. A few weeks ago north Louisiana was flooded by rain in many places. Gardens came to a stand still along with other things of life. Some people had already planted some things. Thankfully most people had not; including Daddy. He had broken up the ground and … Continue reading “Get Your Rhythm”
Through The Veil
Today was the greatest day in Mama's life a year ago today. Last year on January 6th, she stepped through that veil that we can't see through, but that lead to her perfect health and life eternal with her Lord and Savior. She worshiped and served Jesus here on earth, but now her worship is … Continue reading Through The Veil

Mama's parents planted enough of a variety of vegetables for themselves, my aunt's family, and Mama's family, as well as some truck farming. Papaw Holley planted acres of purple hull peas and hired … Continue reading Squash Bugs Everywhere!
Can you just imagine?! What it must have been like on that first Resurrection morning to see what had happened in the spirit world! Before the discovery was even made on Earth, all Hell feared and trembled, while all Heaven rejoiced because the angels and demons had witnessed, and they knew what had truly happened! … Continue reading Imagine!
As I try to get back to our “new normal” and reprogram to fit my life now, I have a new perspective on my writing. My mama passed away in January of this year after a long battle with a rare auto immune disease, and the probable brain cancer, and lung cancer associated with it. … Continue reading New Beginnings
