Morris-Angel of Friendship

Morris the Cat—2004-2019

An angel left us

Silently, went to heaven

Christmas Eve morn.

Fifteen years of her friendship

Remains in our memories.


A tribute to our family cat who passed away this last Christmas Eve morning.

One Heart

In a world of hurt

One heart among many

Can bring souls comfort

One heart that’s surrendered

Completely to God’s will


As I continue to read the true story of Katie Davis Majors heart’s commitment to God and His will, I am amazed at what God has done through her for the people in Uganda.

I recommend reading her book “Kisses for Katie”. It’s a great testimony of what God can accomplish through one heart that’s totally surrendered to Him.

In Bethlehem

The hustle and bustle

On the city sidewalks

Disappears from view

As the two weary travelers

Seek shelter in a stable


And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

The Waiting

Christmas Bags of Gifts

After Thanksgiving

It all began happening

Planning, purchasing

Decorating and wrapping

Now we sit and wait for morn


Our family is having our Christmas tomorrow morning because that’s the only time everyone can get together at once.

Presents are wrapped, cookies are baked, and I’m ready to go!

Tonight I am just resting, watching Christmas movies, nibbling on a few cookies, and waiting for morning 😊
