The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18 (NASB)

Shhh. It’s the weekend. Remove your shoes and step into the stillness. Stop by Sandra Heska King’s place for Still Saturday. Then head over to Lisha Epperson’s beautiful place for Give Me GraceYou’ll join us, yes? It’s your very own tranquil retreat. And we saved a place for you.

Sandra Heska King - Still Saturday


  1. What a treat to see this. AND, another blessing, is knowing that when in heaven, we’ll be with everyone forever and ever. You were a real treat to me this weekend, BTW, and I truly want to somehow get together. LOVE the photo!!

  2. I have been thinking of my late father all weekend, but I get more joy than sadness when I do that. That picture of you and your loved ones makes me think that they were amazing people, and that your memories of them must be precious.

    • Oh, Lynne, yes, they were, and my memories are indeed precious. I don’t know how people bear it when they have no hope. xoxo

  3. I have been thinking of my late wife Marcia…
