About “Penning Pansies”

,Dear Reader

.I love flowers

.While daisies are my favorite, I also love pansies

— They bloom where they’re planted

,Thriving in cooler temperatures

.In both sunshine and shade

,They’re colorful, happy flowers

.”Pansy literally means “thoughts, remembrances, things to consider

— That’s what you’ll find here

…Earnest thoughts

…Honest recollections

…Heartfelt meditations

 — Concerning God’s extraordinary character as it’s revealed

…In His Word

…In this world

.And at home

,As I prayerfully pen my pansies here in this garden

— I invite you to walk with me

…Maybe cry with me

.Laugh with me

Together, it’s my hope we’ll discover more of

The depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of our 

.Good and gracious God

.To Him be the glory, forever and ever

(From Romans 11)




I live and love on Selah Farm -- a hobby homestead nestled in the beautiful mountains of western NC. With Bill, my husband of 33 years, and our three "born-in-our-hearts" children and several grandchildren we raise a variety of animals. I love books, movies and music that make me cry.

I ask daily to have eyes and ears wide open that I might experience the wonders of God's Word and His created world.

Taking Spirit-breathed ideas and framing them with words is my passion.

Living Jesus is my highest aim.
