Lines of Gratitude: Drip Line of Coffee

For 37 years, I was a proud abstainer.  In fact, I am not even sure that I could make a decent pot.  We did “inherit” my Grandma’s percolator pot, but the glass top part broke, so for the longest time we did not even have a way to make coffee. So, if my mother-in-law came […]

Forty Lines After the Hour

My grandparents had quite the collection of antiques.  When I was younger, I did not recognize that this was unusual.  As many of them are now gracing my home, I am highly appreciative.  What is amazing is that many of them were gifts from a gentleman whose family did not want them.  I am not […]

Faded mauve lines on our dining room chairs

Recently my husband found a high table for our dining room.  The  price was incredible since the table was missing a leg.  That fact would have halted most would-be purchasers, but my handy guy just fabricated a new one.  And the table really does look lovely. Almost matches our hardwood floors … So, we put […]

Overcoming Line

Romans 8:37 “In all these things, we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.” I was not quite into my American Idol years when her powerful voice hit the stage.  (My husband & I managed to follow the show for a few years and liked watching the contestants – not often the “famous” singers performing […]

Long Line of Leavers

I decided that for my first “Lines on a Staff” favorite albums/songs post to use the one title that actually contains the word “line” was fitting!  I randomly stumbled on this Caedmon’s Call cd on sale one time.  The rest of the album is good, but I often do not manage to make it past […]

Lines on a page and lines on a staff

I think I have always been a lover of books.  When I worked at a restaurant in high school, I would laugh when I saw younger girls reading their chapter books at the table – that was definitely me.  Still is, although I try not to read when my family is around.  At least not […]
