I'm kind of a late starter, Dear Reader. Whether it was having kids, graduating from college, or starting a career, I've lagged a little behind my friends. Now sometimes I feel like I'm playing catch-up...
Happy New Year, Dear Reader! I hope your gatherings and celebrations were spectacular, and that you are looking forward to an equally spectacular year.
El Shaddai, our Heavenly Father! You have seen my deepest longing, and you have answered my prayer. In your great love, as a parent for His child, you have listened to the heart of your daughter. You have come near and blessed me.
Can my spirit praise your name any more, El Shaddai, or be filled with greater joy? I do not know how to thank you for the gift you have placed within me. I do not deserve your grace. Help me nurture and encourage this child to be all you are creating him to be.
Dear Aunt Nell,
Tom and I tried to be so practical when we were planning and downsizing for the move to our new home. At the time it seemed like we'd covered as many bases as possible. So much for best-laid plans.
Dear Aunt Nell,
Several of my friends have said they stopped checking social media because in our currently crazy world, it's so negative. I guess that's true a lot of times.
But more often than not, social media gives me the boost I need. Like this week...
Mama taught me a lot of things, but one of them is a lesson I'm still learning. Maybe not intentionally, but Mama taught me about letting go.
What do you say, Dear Reader, when asked what your hobb(ies) are? That's a tough question for me to answer. I've done school for so many years, I've never landed on anything that kept my attention for long. Or I hadn't until I tried something with my granddaughters.
Once upon a time I dreamed of learning to arrange flowers and become an outstanding photographer in my next life. Sometimes we need to monitor and adjust, don't we, Dear Reader?
Hey, Dear Reader, are you as ready for flip-flop season as I am? I just love wearing flip-flops! I keep a pair out in my closet year-round, just in case there's a freak warm day in January. But flip-flops can be a little problematic, too.
Lord, a dead-end job in a backwater town...no hope in sight. The rabbi says King David started out this way, hard to believe. Maybe shepherds weren't considered to be the lowest of the low back then.
Hi, my name is Alice. A Way with Words is about sharing faith,
fun, & encouragement. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find a little something to take
