It was like packing a Christmas box and stuffing it full of all the goodies you know the person would love, only we were filling waxed boxes with beautiful, ripe veggies that had just been picked and washed to be delivered to the CSA participants.

“This week we have a g...

I lost her. It’s not all that uncommon these days for me to misplace things, but my grandmother in her grave?! My suspicious hairs got raised this summer when I finally visited my “Bobchi” (Polish for grandmother) in the last place I saw her and she was nowhere to be f...

I grew up Catholic – the American suburban variety where we went to church on Sundays – sometimes - said grace before dinner and loved to celebrate Easter. I confess that I relished the Easter Egg Hunt quite a bit more than the scratchy dresses and long services we end...

You know that great idea you get in the middle of the night? It all sounds so do-able as you lay on your bed picturing the whole, complete scene. You drift back into peaceful sleep assured of success.

And then comes morning.

Was that God talking to you? It sounded so goo...

This time of year many of us are anxious to see things blooming. Perhaps one of your neighbors has a forsythia bush or a crabapple tree that has some of those fun, early flowers. Even if your yard is behind the times, so to speak, there’s a solution: forced branch bloo...

I met her in the broken place.

Fragile moments. Tears shared. Hearts spilled.

She knew the Lord had asked her to write. She got up eac...

Because of its sheer size, there are some garden chores that are daunting. Pruning the grape vine is one such task. I’m never quite sure where to cut and while I start out with good intentions to be very careful, I usually end up hacking and whacking in a random patter...
