Barb has a very good life, but she’s pondering what it takes to go from good to great.
I’ve been reading my morning devotional, and jotting down whatever jumps out, or resonates. Here’s this week’s favorite. When things seem all wrong, trust me anyway. I am much less interested in right circumstances than in right responses to whatever comes your way. Jesus Calling-1/26/2021 I’ve had 5 days that feel like Monday with a… Continue reading Let Love Be Loud
The watch went back into it’s original box. The ginormous clock was removed from the bedroom wall and moved to the breezeway. I can still see it from the bedroom, so it will continue to be enjoyed, but it’s out of my room, and there’s no more ticking sound. I want to stop watching time.… Continue reading Take Some Time
Last year I had a side goal of emptying my draft folder. I got it down to two drafts, but just couldn’t bring myself to publish them. The timing felt off, and now I’ve begun to add to the draft folder again. I can have a goal, but it’s important to be in God’s timing… Continue reading A Better Listener

It was more than her words, maybe it was her vibe while writing, like she was filled with peace and laying it on the page to be shared. It took… Continue reading Filled with peace
My friend who I meet for coffee once a month gave me a beautiful mug. It’s a travel mug, which I didn’t have. I usually drink my coffee before leaving the house, so it’s rather liberating knowing my coffee can now travel. The box has been sitting on the coffee bar, and it’s just as… Continue reading To Stay Planted
All this talk about the draft folder is really just the tip of the iceberg. I left out the part about all the emails I’ve sent to myself with pictures attached. Looking through some of them lastnight I noticed there’s an additional folder entitled ‘Blog Ideas’, chocked full from 2019. Let’s not forget the journals… Continue reading In Real Time
I completed a ’30 Days to Better Sleep’ mediation, and it worked really well. I didn’t hear the end of several of the meditations, because I fell asleep. 😂 I enjoyed the voice and positive attitude of the man who narrated the meditation, so I looked him up. He was easy to find on social… Continue reading Download the App
