Shattered Heart

Matthew 5:4 – Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. (NIV)

I watched as if it were rolling in slow motion — or it could have been me moving in slow motion. I stretched my hand forward as it rolled to the floor — shattering. My heart skipped a beat. My favourite coffee mug lay in pieces on the floor.

Then, I realized that it was my heart that was shattered and not just the coffee cup that I didn't know how to pick up. I was so raw with emotion, since my mum had passed away just days before, that I just stared at the broken pieces on the floor.

Book Review Catbird Singing

Catbird Singing

The book brings back wonderful childhood memories of growing up on a farm, even though it wasn’t an Amish farm the farm life is very similar to all.  I have always had a draw to the Amish life when we go to Lancaster and this book made me feel a part of the story.

Seeing Is Believing... Or Is It?

The area where I work is dotted with large lots and homes. There aren't many fences, but there are a lot of dogs that all remain on their property as we walk by. Recently, I was on a walk with a lady that I support, and three dogs were running around their yard. She turned to me and said, "We should go back. The dogs are coming." I explained that they don't leave their yard because they wear a special receiver collar, and the perimeter of the yard has an invisible fence — an underground transmitting wire.
