Little Old Lady & Ichabod Crane

Posted on June 18, 2018 7:07 pm by Barbara Ardis

It started out like a normal Tuesday. Except most days in my life are anything but “normal.” I bought my car at a dealership in another town and return every 6,000 miles for a routine checkup. They change the oil and filter and check tire depth and all fluids. At my last visit they told me my right hand windshield washer was broken but they would have to order the parts. I said I would return.

After about 2,000 miles I found time to return to the dealership only to be told that they had the nozzle I needed but … Read the rest

Father’s Day is upon us, celebrated annually on the third Sunday in June. It has become a time for family gatherings, sales and gift-giving to dear old Dad. Today, more than 70 countries celebrate a special day dedicated to fathers. But when did it all begin?

In a recent daily devotional I read these words penned by Bill Crowder… “Though we measure time with clocks and calendars, we remember times because of events. In the moments of life that trigger our deepest emotions, we can experience joy, loss, blessing, pain, success, failure.” Wow … that got me thinking about those defining moments in my life that have shaped my life perspective.

I think we have all heard the story about being drugged as a kid…and yes, I was one of those kids. I was drugged to Sunday school and church every Sunday morning and Sunday evening, … Read the rest
