God Promises a Place of Abundance

Have you ever been through a season of life where “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all?” seems to sum it up best? Everywhere you turn, you are swimming against the current. Everyday is a fight, and by the time you fall into bed at night you feel bloodied and bruised, like you were in […]

Memorial Day

Today we remember all the people who have died while serving in our country’s armed forces. Thank you to every military family for your unselfish sacrifices! The holiday originated as Decoration Day in the years after the Civil War. In 1868 General John A. Logan called for a nationwide day of remembrance for those killed in action. May 30 was […]

Time To Do Some Edging!

What makes a picture perfect yard, you know, the one that could be featured on the cover of a home and garden magazine? Is it the beautifully landscaped flower beds or the lush green grass? The lawn is always mowed to the right height; it looks like the outfield at Fenway Park. Maybe the trees and shrubs always seem to […]

What Kind Of Day Is It?

Most catchphrases or sayings we use have stories behind them; we just don’t often take the time to research those stories. Here is the story behind one saying that near and dear to my heart.

We are creatures of habit.

Habits help us through our day. We can do a similar task without having to be fully engaged […]

“At the Very Time”

You have probably heard or even said, “I was in the right place at the right time” or maybe the flipside of that statement – “I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Sometimes our timing works to our advantage, other times, to our detriment. You are employed at a corporation and the longtime department manager suddenly gives […]

The Three Tides of Life

One of the things we check before heading off to the beach is the tide chart to determine when high and low tides will occur that day. You are probably thinking – does it really matter? We like to collect shells and the best time for shell collecting is usually about an hour before and after low tide, so knowing […]

The Fluctuating Pattern of Tropical Storms

We are only a few weeks away from the official beginning on the 2016 Hurricane Season. And right now, we are in the middle of what is called Hurricane Preparedness Week; a time for those of us who live in areas prone to tropical cyclones to learn about ways to prepare and protect ourselves, and our property, in the event […]

Hurry Up and Wait!

We are a society that does not like waiting. Whether it is in line at the grocery store, at the drive-thru window, or at the security checkpoint at the airport, we just don’t like to wait. We are a microwave society; we want to push a few buttons and in one minute the meal is ready to eat. Even as […]
