Each Strand

I love this time of year! Probably one of the main things I enjoy about spring and summer is growing so many different vegetables and flowers. I’ve always enjoyed experimenting with different ways of growing plants, sometimes trying what I read or heard, or just experimenting with something to see what happens! Since I’ve always […]

My Dad

This is Father’s Day weekend…..many still have their father nearby-or at least still alive. But many-like me-do not…..my father, Arnold Nauman, lived from 1926-2007. If you’ve read many of my previous blogs, you know that he had a General Store in rural upstate New York for over 40 years. He  always had to work 6 […]

Just Four Words

(This is a reprint of a post from May 14, 2017 with only a few slight changes) Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong […]

Who Was That?

During the late 1990’s, until 2002, my now late wife Laura and I were very involved in a ministry of testimony and music, plus she would demonstrate what her ‘service dog’ Roxi did for her before The Lord healed her from a severe neuromuscular disease. We were mostly speaking in churches, but also service clubs, […]

It Really Is

I happened to see part of a late night infomercial promoting a product that was supposed to ‘cure’ most all common diseases, and allow you to live up to 120 years-(just like the people in the remote village where this product was discovered!) Then a vibrant, physically fit young woman started telling how she’s now […]

I Didn’t Do It!

If the wind caused the back door to slam-shut with a loud bang…..and if ’Flossie‘ was in the store, she would yell out, ”I didn’t do it!” If someone dropped something and it made a loud noise-if ‘Flossie’ was in the store, she would yell out, “I didn’t do it!” On the rare occasion that something made of glass […]

Work On The Positives

When I was about 6 or 7 years old, I remember helping my great grandfather in his vegetable garden one day. He was born in 1880, so he would have been in his early 80’s at that time. I can remember we were planting his sweet corn—because I had “caught” his fertilizer in the river! […]

Look At The Birds

Something happens every year right here on my little piece of property in northern Indiana between February 20-24. I’ve kept track of it for over 25 years in a row, and only once did it happen on the 19th, and once as late as the 26th. What is the event? It’s the return of the […]

Do You Know Anyone In Buffalo?

Those years I spent growing up and working in my father’s general store, taught me so much about business, people, and basically life and how to enjoy it! It was a true country general store, with a U. S. Post Office in the back. (my Uncle Stan was the Postmaster) There were individual mailboxes on […]
