Happy Thanksgiving 2016


Happy Thanksgiving, Dear Readers!

I hope you plan on feasting like crazy and can build wonderful memories with your family and friends!

I took these fall photos from downtown Huntsville this afternoon. The store is the old Harrison Brothers store that now is a unique boutique where you can buy stuff from local artisans.

Be Blessed,


Do you recognize these leaves from the “Happy Thanksgiving!” text I wrote above?
“No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best.”




Piper & Leaf at Harrison Brothers! Woohoo!

The Curve – Flash Fiction

Gwen looked at the clock on her dashboard. 5:49 p.m. She pressed the accelerator and her Nissan surged faster. Gwen could kick herself that she hadn’t left for her colleague’s wedding ten minutes earlier. She often did that to herself—got dressed to go somewhere too early and, with too much time on her hands before… Continue Reading

Shall We Gather at the River

Last Thursday evening, my Princess Buttercup accepted Christ by being baptized. Just like the 1st Century Christians, she was plunged into the waters (by her dad!), where Jesus did the work of washing away her sins. What does that mean? As long as she chooses to follow Jesus, He will continuously forgive her every time… Continue Reading
