March Madness

The Biltmore Estate garden in the spring, Asheville, NC

May your life become one of glad and unending praise to the Lord as you journey through this world, and in the world that is to come!

I hope the first weeks of the new year are finding you right where you're supposed to be.  February was Heart Month.  It is our obligation as women to know about our hearts and take care of them.  My personal blog gives details on the symptoms of a heart attack, what to do, and how to prevent them.

As we march into March, let's remember to follow our dreams, reach out to those around us, and encourage those who are going through hard times.  We live in a world that can suck the life out of us if we allow it.  Take time to embrace God's beauty, read His Word, and listen to His Voice.

Oceans of blessings, and I'll see you on the radio!

My aim is to raise hopes by pointing the way to life without end.  This is the life God promised long ago--and He doesn't break promises!  Titus 1:1  The Message

Our Path through 2011

There will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path...  But this, far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.  Sir Winston Churchill

How is your year going so far?  The Christmas decorations are put away, but I'm still enjoying my winter deco of snowmen and my ice-skate tree in the kitchen sitting room.  My snowmen warm me up on cold, gray days, and my "Let it Snow" signs came to pass when it snowed again last week.  Yes, I'm one of those California girls who now live in the south that jump up and down when I see snowflakes falling.  

Who's having a birthday this year?  Glad to see all those raised hands!  My big sixty-five is creeping up and there is excitement in the air!  I am honestly looking forward to celebrating another year of life!  Like my girlfriends Debbie and Barbara, some of you have literally fought to live thus far.  Keep fighting!  You are touching and influencing those around you more than you know.  We all need someone to look to for inspiration.  And who knows, YOU might be that someone that your neighbor, your sister, or your co-worker is looking to.  We're walking together, so let's reach out and hold one another's hand.

Have an AMAZing first-month-of-the-year!  Remember, spring is just around the corner...well, sounds good anyway.

Oceans of blessings and see you on the radio!

So we have been greatly encouraged in the midst of our troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith.
