Wild West Episode

I believe the best TV shows were in my childhood. To this day, I still have positive memories associated with certain TV shows. The Wild West’s image became imprinted in my mind with such shows as High Chaparral, Gun Smoke, and Bonanza. Even The Brady Bunch episodes of their family camping trip introduced the Wild … More Wild West Episode

Talk about Heaven

We were relaxing around the dining room table reminiscing about a couple of mission trips we’d taken, and about present ministry. One friend around that table admitted to a loss of purpose due to her critical illness. For decades, she had an immeasurable impact in many lives, but now was pondering what on earth she … More Talk about Heaven

Imagine a New Life

Yesterday morning in church, we sang a medley of songs about heaven, as well as grace. While singing, my mind pondered how freeing it is to live a life indelibly marked by God’s grace. None of us deserve God’s grace. Maybe as a believer in Jesus, you have wondered where you would be if it … More Imagine a New Life

Tomato Pie

It’s summer. And in Mississippi, tomato season is in full swing! My husband planted a good dozen tomato plants this year. About two weeks in, he wasn’t happy with how they looked, so he added a few more. No worries, though, as this yielded the largest amount of this smooth, red fruit since planting. These … More Tomato Pie

If you are a believer in Jesus, take a moment to scan these stanzas. “Jesus is all the world to me” brings comfort and mental … More Eternal Life Eternal Joy

Blueberry pickin’

Until I came to live on the property of Buried Treasures Home, I’d never picked blueberries. Now, every June, I look forward to this pleasure. The harvest is plentiful this year, and they … More Blueberry pickin’

Deck Garden update

Back on April 10th, I published this post Easy ideas for your deck garden. At that time, I was just beginning to plant annuals. Having only a few minutes here and there to devote to this project, a little over a month later, it has progressed, but is not quite finished. I’m pleased so far with … More Deck Garden update

Blessed are…

The Beatitudes are a well-known portion of scripture. Because it is so well known, it’s a treasure that can be overlooked. Maybe having explanation to this poetic, truth laden passage can enlighten you to more of its meaning and punctuate its value to you personally. Matthew 5:1-9 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, He went … More Blessed are…

Easter 2018

Easter was yesterday or should I say that Christians celebrated what Jesus did on the cross and His resurrection yesterday. If you are a faithful follower of Jesus, waking up each day is a reminder of God’s resurrection in your life. He has given each Christ follower a plan and it is up to us … More Easter 2018
