Here you will always find the American flag

waving and the American eagle flying.

I left the light on in case 

you arrived after dark. 

Come join in for some 

time to relax.

Let me get you a cup of coffee, it

won't take long, I'll be quick!



Wow, Spring flowers at their best.

Love the old little wagon!

Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from 

which we get sunshine when dark, somber 

skies blanket our thoughts.



It would appear this pretty gal has

found a quiet place to read.





With just the two of us, I always have leftover hot dog buns,

especially during BBQ season. Hog dog buns make great French

toast sticks for breakfast. Just use with your typical French toast

recipe. They also make great garlic bread sticks. Butter and garlic

them and sprinkle cheese on top. Then bake them in a 375

degree oven for about 15 minutes. Yay, no more

wasted hot dog buns!!


Halley's comet passes the Earth every 76 years.

The Olympic flag was designed in 1913.


The electric toothbrush was invented in 1939.


The doorbell was invited in 1831.


The first English dictionary was written in 1755.


The tea bag was invented in 1908.


Wow, our common things have been around for

longer than I would have imagined.


One little cute fluff ball.


Another colorful and variety of material patterns.

“Begin each day renewed, refreshed and glad to be alive” are the words of my grandfather Norman Vincent Peale. Part of his message is that we be aware that God is present in every aspect of our lives. I believe Grandpa would even say that, knowing that God’s love is with you helps you begin each day as such.

I wish I could say I wake up each day renewed and refreshed. I often allow my attitude upon waking to depend on a multitude of variables: what time I went to bed; how I slept; what kinds of dreams I had; what lies before me that day; what my commitments, demands, responsibilities are.

I do wake up glad to be alive, but do I really sit with that gladness? How much more often do I let all those other variables overshadow the gladness? Too often, I am ashamed to admit.

I count on messages from Grandpa, from Guideposts, from other mindful and inspirational sources to make me more aware of renewal and gladness.

This takes practice, and I am the first to say there is much practice that I have squandered and much ahead of me to tackle. But I am grateful to Grandpa Peale and so many others in my life who remind me of the power that lies within each of us to grab hold of each day in ways that might even surprise us.
