As a child, Easter was about colored eggs, chocolate bunnies and Oasis State Park for an old-fashion Easter egg hunt and […]

In times of fear, put trust in Lord

The March spring winds roared like the proverbial lion, but that’s how it is in eastern New Mexico. My husband was in Oklahoma to help our middle son build a barn. It became my job to feed Lady, a beautiful sorrel mare that seemed more like a person than a horse. Twice a day I […]
