Under Construction….

Welcome to my new blog…but please note it’s still under construction.

But then, isn’t the world?

Every airport, highway, and high-rise bears these two words-Under Construction. That means drive slow, wear a hard hat, and watch for Debris. Actually that’s not bad advice when reading my blogs….enter at your own risk.

My hope is that you wold be blessed by visiting here, but I’m human and I confess I am given t outlandish thoughts and nonsensical ramblings. Occasionally I’m brilliant, but it’s temporary like the flashing behind of a firefly…so watch closely and bring a mason jar for one never knows when I might say something worth storing up for a dark night.

I wish I were more consistent, but I’m not because, quite honestly, like my blog site I’m Under Construction.

    I LOVE the new look, Patsy. So, so pretty. Just like you. You ALWAYS say something worth “storing up for a dark night.” Just this afternoon, I posted one of your “lights” to me in my sidebar just ‘cuz it encourages me when it need it, makes me laugh (always good medicine) and brings me joy. You are gift!

    Hi there Patsy! I’ve seen you at the Women of Faith conference twice. I just started a blog of my own and I’ve been staying up way too late at night reading other blogs…I’m glad I found yours to add to my list, and will look forward to your brilliant ramblings. 🙂

    Hi Patsy, My husband and I were just in Franklin. We are retiring next year from being pastors in Iowa. We loved Franklin and are looking for an apartment. We have narrowed our search to Franklin, Asheville, North Carolina or maybe Dalton GA. The people in Franklin and Asheville we the friendliness,

    I can see why you love living there. Blessings to you and your husband. Much love, Clara

Who doesn’t need a big ole dose of that. Thanks for sharing your outlandish thoughts and nonsensical ramblings which are brilliantly crafted into profound profoundness! I shall gather my mason jars in the attempt to capture you flashing firefly thoughts!!

    Hi Patsy, precious friend. Sounds like you have had another “moving adventure”. I just moved as well. It was bittersweet because of it being the first home without my Jim, but I knew I needed to embrace my new season of life. I have a small home on a small lake (my kids call it a pond) and many new friends near my age. Somehow it has helped me feel more conntected to life again. I miss seeing you and hope to attend one of the conferences this fall. Big hugs to you. Judy

    Patsy, I just love this blog…from the very first time I saw you at Women of Faith…several years ago, I have just loved your humor, your wisdom, your message of hope! When I first attended a Women of Faith Conference in Dallas, I went apprehensively. My dear friend Dianne really wanted me to attend, and I told her I would be the only Messianic Jew in the entire arena…but I went….and WOW….what an awe inspiring couple of days. I laughed, I cried,and most importantly, I felt close to Yeshua. I enjoyed the look on strangers’ faces when I was asked casually what Church I belonged to! I would promptly state that I was a member of Baruch HaShem in Dallas ( a very large Messianic Synagogue). The experience was wonderful, and you, dear lady, were a joy to listen to! Since that first encounter with Women of Faith I have attended every year’s Conference, and also went to San Antonio a couple of years ago. I can’t wait to see you in 2011!!!!

    Shalom and Blessings,
