I am a resident of southern Louisiana, a retired high school English teacher, a writer, and a huge fan of photography ever since my husband gave me my first DSLR camera several years ago.

Therefore, I will trust him. Whatever, where…
There are some things that have to be shared, and I think this is one of them. This morning, I woke up feeling burdened by many cares. I tried to shake off the feeling of heaviness and discouragement over long-term issues that never seem to get resolved, but I wasn’t succeeding. All I could do was turn to the Lord with a sigh in my heart and hope for His help and understanding. / “Be …
O God our Creator, / Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, / you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, / bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel / to every corner of society. / We ask you to bless us / in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. / Give us the strength of mind and heart / to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened…
With the U.S. election only days away, I feel compelled to share this with the people here. About a year ago, I went to one of my specialist physicians for my yearly examination. I have been going to this doctor for many years now, and I really admire and trust her.
