Posted by Liz on January 18, 2018 in Interest, Thoughts, Words |

Nine Months = Never A few weeks ago, people in Eugene held a ceremony to remember Thomas Egan. I served with Major Egan, then Captain Egan, in the Oregon Army National Guard. My husband and I both did. After we moved to Coos Bay and my husband retired from the National Guard I never saw […]

Maxine for president?

Posted by Liz on May 28, 2017 in From the Internet, National, Thoughts, Words |

From the internet… Maxine for president? Everyone concentrates on the problems we’re having in this country lately — illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida … … not me — I concentrate on solutions for the problems — it’s a win-win situation. Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border. Send the […]

A Thousand Marbles

Posted by Liz on September 22, 2015 in Collected Works, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

Found on the internet:   May your Saturday mornings be special. The older I get, the more I enjoy Saturday mornings. Perhaps it’s the quiet solitude that comes with being the first to rise, or maybe it’s the unbounded joy of not having to be at work. Either way, the first few hours of a […]

A Holding Pattern

Posted by Liz on September 22, 2015 in Faith, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

Found on the Internet: A Holding Pattern Many times God will allow a painful situation or a painful circumstance in our life to “swallow us up.” This season in our spiritual growth is a holding pattern. We can’t move to the left or the right. All we can do is sit, like Jonah sat in […]

The Soldier

The Soldier If I should die, think only this of me: That there’s some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware, Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam, A body […]

Wet Pants

Posted by Liz on October 4, 2014 in Faith, Thoughts, Words |

From the Internet, author unknown   Come with me to a third grade classroom….. There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly […]

Words for fire fighters

Posted by Liz on September 11, 2014 in Collected Works, Faith, Interest, Local, National, Regional, Thoughts, Words |

Fireman’s Prayer   Give me the strength to save some life, Whatever be its age. Help me embrace a little child, Before it is too late; Or save an older person from, The horror of that fate. Enable me to be alert, And hear the weakest shout, And quickly and efficiently, To put the fire […]

The Driver

Posted by Liz on August 1, 2014 in Faith, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

I’m not sure it is very good, but it is from my heart. A fellow with a particular liking for old cars found one several hundred miles from his home. It was an ugly, rusted sort of thing, but anyone could tell that with a lot (and I mean lot) of hard work the car […]

Hymns Wanted

Posted by Liz on March 4, 2014 in Collected Works, Faith, History, Interest, Thoughts, Words |

What happened to Hymnals? I’m looking for a church that uses hymnals when they worship. You know, the books of a certain familiar size that contain music notated at one song a page, real music with bars and notes and 4 parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). It doesn’t matter that there are not enough hymnals […]
