  • Whenever my husband starts a sentence with, “Before you say no, hear me out,” I know I’m headed for a heart attack or two.

    It’s usually about an idea he has for a change around the house, from knocking down a wall to rearranging the furniture.

    No matter what the change is, I immediately hate the idea only because I hate change of any kind.

    I’ve had the same hairstyle for 30 years, the same job since 1992, the same husband since 1975. The furniture in my house hasn’t changed since we moved in 16 years ago.

  • “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

  • Once upon a time I was content with one pillow. This solitary pillow was sufficient to cradle my head through the nighttime hours. I spurned extra pillows and throw cushions because it just seemed redundant. After all, I only had one head so why on earth was it necessary to own more than one pillow? I found the body pillow to be creepy and intrusive. Yes, I was more than content with the lone pillow.
