New Year’s Eve

Just a quick posting to sum up 2011:

My mom made the best fruitcake. Honestly.

Yes, I know. Fruitcake. That much maligned sweet bread that people love to mock and make fun of at Christmastime.

But my mom’s fruitcake was delicious. And, for her, it was an annual event when Dad would help her put together the fruitcake at Christmas.

Mom’s fruitcake was […]

Mysterious Ways

God works in mysterious ways…not to point out the blatantly obvious. A couple of things happened today that made this become incredibly blatantly obvious to me.

I was out running errands and was on my way to Target and thought I had forgotten the gift tags from the giving tree at […]


There are train tracks near my house. Actually there are a number of train tracks near my house but the ones I am referring to are the ones I cross about four blocks from here. There aren’t any lights or a gate that comes down where the tracks cross the road. There is a RR […]

Right Place, Right Time

I stopped by the Michael’s Craft Store in Biddeford today to pick up some items for Christmas. As I was getting out of my vehicle, I heard someone gasp. I looked in the direction of the sound and I saw an elderly woman walking towards another woman who was on the ground. The woman on […]
