Why a blog from me, someone who has never been a writer, someone who has never been articulate or had a solid grasp of the grammar world. Because God told me to write. Several years ago a life storm invaded my family. God kept telling me to write it all down. I argued, but He would not let up. This went on every day for a couple of weeks until one day out of frustration, (I'd like to say it was out of obedience), I picked up a pen and paper and wrote for 7 hours straight! Do you think maybe I needed therapy and God knew it?

I've been writing ever since and have learned to love it! I started out sharing my stories with friends and family. I've now been published in a Nashville church paper, Our Daily Journey (a devotional site of RBC Ministries), PCCWeb Daily Devotional, Ruby for Women Ezine Magazine, and I am a contributor in the book Alabaster Jars, Life in Abundance Collection 2.

Why Ponderings? During this life storm, God led me to a pond in the woods behind my home. There He met me each time, teaching new lessons, reminding me of old ones, showing His presence and allowing me to feel His love through the surroundings of that pond. I found myself returning over and over to ponder, pray and praise. A healing of my heart took place and out of the experience came my first book, Ponderings From the Pond, then a second book, Ponderings From My Porch, and now a third book is in the works along with a memoir about my storm.

Why am I making myself so vulnerable? Because God has done so much that I cannot keep quiet. I have to share. Jesus's last words to his desciples were, "Go,tell." We are his disciples too and this is just one of my ways of telling.

I'm no scholar but I have heard God's voice in my spirit, experience His love daily, and have a desire for others to experience this also. I would love to share with all who visit and I would love to hear from you. If my sharing gets just one to ponder, to be quiet with the Father, to see and hear from Him or to be reminded of something from Him, then this is worth my vulnerability.

As you visit me, sometimes we will be at the pond, sometimes we will move to the front porch, and sometimes we will just be here, there, and yonder. Thank you for coming and please feel free to come back anytime, you are always welcome here.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Psalm 19:14


My first book, Ya Know What I'm Say'n, has been released.

Blogger Bugs

Some of us have Blogger bugs and I'm not happy about them.  They are eating up our comments.  To you bloggers that I come to read, I want you to know that I am there and am enjoying your posts.  They inspire me, make me ponder, encourage me, and even make me laugh   But to some of you, I cannot tell you.  Some places let me leave comments and other places will not.  I cannot even comment on my own blog, so to those of you who come and leave me wonderful messages, I treasure them but cannot tell you unless I can find your e-mail and let you know that way.  This has been going on for some time now, and I do not know what to do about it.  I am praying that Blogger will take care of it soon.

In the mean time, I hope you all will keep coming back to my place and I will keep coming to yours.  You can always e-mail me if you would like, as I love to hear from you all.

I think maybe the enemy is trying to use these little buggers to stop us from encouraging one another and sharing the Good News. This is a community that ministers to one another and this is ground he does not like.  I say, let's not let him win. Let's pray these buggers away and in the mean time, keep encouraging one another with your posts.

Next post will be on. . . . .you got it. . . . .love!  :)

Love you guys!

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
Genesis 50:12

Ugh! Join the club with "Blogger Bugs." I can't believe that they are still having them, but insist to move everything to Google + by the month of March! I fear we shall see more "Blogger Bugs" in the future and not less.

Yes, we need to pray about those "Blogger Bugs!" Thank you for your comment about my "Free Indeed" post. God bless you!
