A Bowl of Cherries

An eye-catching bowl of cherry tomatoes has been sitting on my kitchen counter for over a week. Deep, bold, shiny and red. Day after day they sit there to remind me to snack well. Each passing day, they continue to sit. My habit of late has been to pass through the kitchen, open the freezer […]

God is making all things new, not all new things!

Revelation 21:5 says, And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new ” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Isaiah 65:17 says, “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind.” […]

Shouldn’t “Scrooge” Be a Compliment?

The annual Hauser family tradition of attending a live Christmas Carol was fulfilled once again this week at a small, intimate local theater with a traditional rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas tale. Despite only six cast members, the second greatest (in my humble opinion) redemption story of all time was magnificently played out. Once […]

Trust Your Master

From the M4M Facebook page – wanted to share on our blog too!: Tom is in Africa for 3 weeks so thought I would put down some thoughts here if I can’t actually post! Savor the blessings of today: Before my quick morning routine of running a cordless vac over my tile flooring, removing the […]


We moved recently, downsized really, a move we should have made several years ago but didn’t because banks have this irritating policy of not wanting to make a you a smaller mortgage when your income is indeterminate, but are perfectly happy for you to go on paying for the bigger one. {Full disclosure – I […]

It Really Is That Simple

I honestly didn’t know what to write. I felt prompted to write, that I was supposed to write and I just wrote an entry but soon found myself deleting the whole thing. Words and even topics eluded me. Fear of having value crept in, so with the touch of a button it was gone. After […]

Look Up!

Change is everywhere I look these days – something I innately want to buck and fight. My survival instinct says, “fight to regain control and be comfortable!” then my recently uncovered true survival instinct, the more grand revealed Spirit which resides over the survival instinct, says “trust and stay strong, perhaps stronger than you ever […]

Tower Gardens and little life lessons…

A month ago I decided to pull out the JuicePlus Tower Garden I‘d purchased last Fall. The original plan for this amazing contraption was to be part of the Outpost Experience for the Angel Reach youth, one component of a well-thought-out program designed to touch the lives of the aged out foster youth in Montgomery […]

Either, or…or?

So my good friend Andrew and I are driving down the Hardy toll way, avoiding the nightly nightmare that is I-45 and looking forward to seeing the Astros play the Giants. The Astros are off to their best start in 30 years (it won’t last, but it’s fun while it does) and the Giants are […]

The waiting is the hardest part  Every day you see one more card  You take it on faith, you take it to the heart  The waiting is the hardest part  The Waiting, performed by Tom Petty …. I hate to wait and I love to wait. It all depends on what I’m waiting for. A […]
