Here a little, there a little

By Rosie Moore With the elections news in the foreground it’s hard to keep one’s mind on things. I missed writing about some subjects last week, concerning February, so I’m going to add them today. I don’t think March will mind.  Because Easter is  being celebrated a little early this year, I’m having a hard […]

The very thought of thee

By Rosie Moore “Jesus, the very thought of thee with sweetness fills my breast, but sweeter far thy face to see, And in thy presence rest. O hope of every contrite heart, O joy of all the meek, to those who fall,  how kind thou art! How good to those who seek!…. Jesus, our only […]

Book Time

By Rosie Moore Nothing better to do on these cold wintry days? Read a book! I received three books at Christmastime and, to me, that’s the best gift: “See Me” by Nicholas Sparks, “Depraved Heart” by Patricia Cornwall, and “Johnny Carson” by Henry Bushkin, who was his lawyer. I will give a short synopsis of […]

The Little Mission

By Rosie Moore The little mission was located on East Vine Street, just a few doors away from South Duke Street, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I don’t remember when it was built, I do remember seeing photographs of a tree growing along the curbside, but it wasn’t there when I started going there. I lived a […]

Uppers and downers

By Rosie Moore Lets start with the downers first. I thought I was the only one who started the year 2016 on the wrong note but as I glanced in the newspaper each day I noticed that many other people were leaving us, most of them from that horrible big “C.” Glenn Frey, who with […]

Rosie’s World

By Rosie Moore The first week of the New Year 2016 I was whining and moaning and groaning because things were not working out the way I thought they should. Once again my little book “My Daily Psalms & Prayers” came to my rescue. This is what it said on January 6th. “Dear Heavenly Father, […]

The Cockatoo

By Rosie Moore On Christmas Eve I met a cockatoo. I really did. His name is Dusty even though he is a beautiful white bird. His lovely comb on the top of his head fluttered up and down constantly. He made a lot of noise, sometimes very loudly, and could speak a few words like, […]

Guess what happened in 1916?

By Rosie Moore Well, here we are in the year 2016 already. A hundred years from 1916. How things have changed but also some things didn’t change. Nineteen-sixteen was a leap year. Jack London, an American novelist died this year. He was born in 1876. Emma Goldman was arrested for lecturing on birth control in 1916 […]

Thoughts for 2016

By Rosie Moore Shopping is finished, baking is finished, decorating is finished, wrapping is finished, and that great day has arrived and went. Toasts have been raised and scrumptious feasts have been partaken. How the time flew! And what is left? Empty feelings, sorrowful thoughts, perhaps, a feeling of let-down? Don’t be discouraged, good feelings […]

A Life Remembered

By Rosie Moore People who write have a tendency to include feelings, happenings, and thoughts that occurred during their lifetimes and I’m sure Charles Dickens was a great forebear of that tendency. Born in 1812 in Portsmouth, London, he was an English writer and social critic, creating some of the world’s best fictional characters. He […]
