Welcome to Ramblings

Feature Box

Come on in and relax a bit. Step away from the chaos of the world out there and rest in stories of simple faith and ramblings about many different topics. I’m so glad you dropped in! I’m Faye (with an ‘e’) and I’m married to Jack. Between us we have three grown sons, two daughters-in-love and three grandkids.

I ramble on in this journal about many things, from simple faith to the complexities of recovery, hoping to help you and others find peace. I’ve also written some in a book. Sit a spell and soak in some Truth to your tired, aching soul. Ramble with me through this thing we call life.

I don’t like Valentine’s Day

​Just gonna throw this out there…  I do not like Valentine’s Day. Maybe that’s because my spouse is sweet and loving to me every single day and extra when needed. Since December 2nd he has graciously taken on caring for me and our home, along with all his many responsibilities. On January 31st, just a […]

A Sudden Pause

Tuesday, January 31st at about 6:30 AM, the pause button was pushed in my life when my 93-year-old father suffered a moderate to severe stroke. Since I’m the only child, I’m the one called upon to handle all paperwork and all decisions as well as being there for him.  That means I won’t be writing […]

A new Bible habit in 21 days 

Good mornin’ to all y’all! So glad you dropped in! Grab a cup of coffee or tea or chocolate or whatever your taste buds are clamoring for and let’s visit!  I want to share with you something near and dear to my heart: Bible reading of the daily variety.  I use two Bible apps on […]

A View to the Future 

The thought of this future may well relieve the darkness of the past and the gloom of the present.

Serene Saturday 

Good morning, y’all!  I’ve recently been sharing photos taken by my friend, Thomas D. Garner, a man who loves the lost and hurting with action and intent.  Today, no post, per se. Just some serene beauty from the lens of Tom. Whatever you get into, y’all have an amazing weekend!  Very soon I’ll share Tom’s […]

What’s it mean to ‘humble yourself’? 

​Someone asked this on Facebook, “James 4:10 Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant]. What does the word humble mean according to this text? Please answer” Well, you know me, I felt those last two words […]

How to get what you want. 

What a relief to know that once you give up that notion of living without Him, once you put the energy into looking for Him – when you run after Him with the passion you chased after your own way – you will find Him!

Don’t forget the Who for the what! 

It is easier to serve than to commune.

Tired in it all

Somehow, though, many believers seem to have forgotten to be different and have opted instead for the satisfaction of meme one-upmanship as though in a boxing match where the only way to win is to get the best jab in.

Bound up! (probably not like you think) 

​I hope you’ve got your cup of coffee or tea or Mountain Dew or Diet Coke. I’ve got something semi-important to share with you.  Now mind you, I’m not complaining here, but the realization has hit me that the bra I put on yesterday morning, is the bra I “get” to wear until Friday afternoon. […]
