About Me

As my sister said five years ago on my 50th birthday, 
"You have reached the top of the mountain, 
and now the easy part, you are on your way down." 
Going "down" has been exciting indeed!
One really does feel the affects of getting older after 50. 


I'm a daughter, sister, aunt, mother and grandmother who's in her mid fifty's. 
I love the role of each and every one of these women.
I enjoy caring for my home and the many blessings that come with it. 
The kitchen is my favorite room in our home, and if I'm not there 
you may find me out of doors where there is much to keep me busy, 
as I am surrounded with the beauty of God's creation.

My husband and I live in, as I call it, 'A cabin in the woods' nestled by the creek. 
We home schooled our two beautiful daughters in this quaint cabin, so I was blessed to be home.
Our two daughters are both grown with families and homes of their own now, 
so I keep myself busy in the lives of others. 


Seniors are my joy! I find myself sitting at their feet 
gleaning much wisdom from our visits together.
There is much one can learn from the older generation if we would just take the time.
I have a passion for the needs of others who may be hurting
both physically and spiritually.
Jesus had compassion on the multitude
and my hearts desire is to be like Christ.

Over 31 years ago I gave my life to Christ, 
and purposed in my heart to follow after Him all the days of my life.
My life verse has been Mark 12:30, 
"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, 
and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment." 
I believe that is my whole being.

I love this quote from Betty Scott Stam, who was a missionary,
 "Lord, I give up all my plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, 
and except Thy will for my life. 
I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. 
Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. 
Use me as Thou wilt, send me where Thou wilt, 
work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever."
This was her prayer, 
and I have made it mine over the many years that I have walked with my Jesus.
God wants all of me, and my heart's desire is to bring Him glory, day by day!

 Welcome! I love to show hospitality. 

                    
I'll put the kettle on and we shall sit around a cup of (your choice) tea, coffee 
or maybe some fresh squeezed juice and visit.
I love to share the Word of God with other ladies,
so when you visit, please feel as if we are 
sitting around the table, or even by the fireside should it be cooler days,
and allow the words that the Lord allows me to share
with you, to touch your heart in a beautiful way.
May your heart be blessed through the sweet fellowship that comes with a visit, 
and may you leave having been refreshed in the Word of God.

~Be Lovely~

Your home looks lovely. It's a pleasure to *meet* you, Debbie. How wonderful that the Lord saved you and that you were able to home school your daughters.
