Pizza and jelly beans are my love language. Well, actually my love language is “words of affirmation” (If you haven’t read about the five love languages, you need to Google it…it’s pretty accurate!), but Joe knew he could dig himself out of a pretty deep hole with a sweet little note, a trip to PizzaContinue reading “Do the Right Thing”
What you have is a record of God’s love for you, His desire to be part of your life, and most importantly, a set of instructions to guide you through every step you take during your time on this earth.
“So Pretty,” he said. Joe smiled as he looked into Ronda’s eyes and whispered those words, gently brushing back the curl that fell in front of her face….AND THAT IS HOW THE ARGUMENT STARTED. 🙂 Not really…but those were fighting words at our house! You see, what started as a playful competition in which oneContinue reading “When You Don’t Understand”

While he was all of those things, he also had aContinue reading “What Will Your Obituary Say?”
I married an old man. Joe Price was an old soul all of his life. He had “old” values and beliefs, loved old music, and loved old things–old trucks, old barns, old clothes (I challenge you to find a shirt he really loved that was not tattered, mended, threadbare, etc). He often joked that hisContinue reading “All Things New”
Joe wrote his last lesson on March 15, 2020. He delivered it to me on Christmas Eve. As Sunday School Superintendent, Joe delivered a brief “mini lesson” to the church congregation before we dismissed to go to our classes each week. He wrote each lesson in a beautiful leather notebook with a beautiful Cross pen,Continue reading “EVERY SEASON”
