The Communicator’s Office is Open

By on October 2, 2020

The network TV drama, West Wing, spanned the years 1999-2006. It is still popular today because of its excellent casting, sparkling dialogue, and bold, engaging storylines. I disagree with its political and idealogical bent, but I love the show for the above reasons.  One episode began with a character going to her desk in the […]

Disaster Flicks

By on April 30, 2020

A text conversation: Me: I’m watching the Day After Tomorrow! My friend: Again? How many times have you watched that movie? Me: Um, I know lots of the dialogue by heart, so, more than a few times. I love disaster movies. Love them. Why? I have no idea, but I’ve a feeling we’ll suss it […]

Good For Us

By on April 10, 2020

“See, My Servant will act wisely He will be raised and lifted up and greatly exalted. Just as many were appalled at You— His appearance was so disfigured that He did not look like a man, and His form did not resemble a human being— so He will sprinkle many nations. Kings will shut their […]

            “Aunt Lisa, can you make some masks for me? I think they are going to call me back to the hospital and I’m scared.”             My niece has been working from home for a little over two weeks and is glad to be away from the front lines of the coronavirus battleground. While nations seek a living-saving […]

Why?

By on March 24, 2020

Bird watching gives me incredible pleasure. It’s especially nice to see myriad robins dancing around my yard. Yes, they are in Ohio all year round, but they make a show of themselves when the ground gets wet and soft in the spring. As they thrust their red breasts full out, I think they say, “Come […]

Dancin’ With the One Who Brung Ya

By on March 17, 2020

My apologies for the vernacular, but you get it, right? Good. My late husband, my sweet Sam, was initially diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2006. One surgery and little tiny radioactive seeds implanted. Done. Moved on… Then came the diagnosis of colon cancer in 2010, which the doctor said had been around since, you guessed […]

Someplace to be Somebody

By on February 1, 2020

Why me? I am sure I am not the only one to ask this question. Why did God connect me with the Brandons? Why did He select me to help Marshall get God’s story in His life in written form? I dunno.  A few years ago, I learned that I: Just.  Must.  Trust. I’ll tell […]

It’s All Him

By on January 9, 2019

Hey, Marshall! Look what the Lord has done! This picture was taken at the 2018 Ohio Christian Writers Conference right after I cried my way up to and back from the podium to accept the first-place award for Someplace to be Somebody, Pastor Marshall Brandon’s memoir I’ve crafted. Joy! Joy! Guess what else God did? […]

He is our Deliverer

By on October 17, 2018

I was afraid of everything, mostly death. I am eternally grateful that I used the past tense form of “to be.” Was, not is. Want to know why? It’s because Jesus took the sting of death away from me and every person who believes. “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your […]
