And suddenly, Hannah was calm

Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.” She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast. – 1 Samuel 1:17-18   Today, I’m reminded that I should…

Remembering a Childhood Fear

So tomorrow, Car is going to hike Mt. Pinatubo with his cousins and as much as I’m going to miss being with him today and tomorrow, I’m glad he’s going 🙂 I can’t wait for him to see face to face the thing that caused us a lot of trouble when we were younger.  It’s very…

On being red
