The Good Old Days

By Susan Niswonger / a day ago

The Good Old Days We have all heard stories of the “good old days.”  It is amazing how time erases all of the “bad old parts” out of the “good old days” and they become a romanticized memory that we long to experience once again.  My mom love to talk of her childhood on the […]

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of days ago

Yesterday, I met Shawn.  A friendly, talkative 10 year old, sporting a “Desert Storm t-shirt” and desperately wanting to go swimming in Higgins Lake.  Jenesa, and I were sitting on the beach watching Caleb frolic in the sand and water and Nathan was snoozing under the umbrella.  Caleb assumed everyone was family and every toy […]

Skinned Knees But Still Running

By Susan Niswonger / a couple of weeks ago

The Winter Olympics were held in Vancouver a few weeks ago.  I held my breath as snowboarders performed on the half-pipe. I groaned when Lindsey Vonn wiped out on the Giant Slalom and cheered the United States team as they scored to send the gold medal hockey game into overtime.  The grace and beauty of […]

He’s God Of The Mondays Too

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks ago

I am a Facebook junkie!  I love being connected to friends and family, sharing amusing stories and pictures of our kids and grandkids.  Most amazing, however, is the insight into each person’s personality and philosophy that I’m given by the multiple updates posted each day.  Matthew 12:34 tells us that it is from the abundance […]

A Different Occasion

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks ago

My 4 year old granddaughter loves a party.  She views every occasion as an opportunity for a party.  Her parties always include cookies or cupcakes, candles, balloons, and fancy hats.  These occasions are fun and create memories that we will look on with fondness for years.

By Susan Niswonger / 3 weeks ago

Our grandsons, two-year old Caleb and two-month old Nathan stayed with us while Steven and Jenesa enjoyed a four day anniversary trip.  Caleb is an old hand at staying with Grandma and Grandpa.  He knows where I keep the toys, the step stool in the bathroom, his toothbrush, where his blanket is in his room […]

Naked And Don’t Know It!!!

By Susan Niswonger / 4 weeks ago

Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness. I am at church playing the piano, everyone is singing and acting as if nothing is out of place, […]

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?

By Susan Niswonger / last month

What do you want from me?  This questioned has been asked by every frustrated husband, wife, child, parent, employee and employer.  It usually comes at a time when you feel every effort has been expended to please another person, yet your performance still doesn’t measure up to the receiver’s expectations.  It can create a sense […]
