Thanks for stopping by!  I’m honored you chose to  visit my blog.  Please come again.

The third of four siblings, I always call myself the stray button on my family’s garment because I couldn’t stay in place. I’m the one who traveled to other states and halfway around the world to live again and again. But I kept coming home in between jobs, and those are the times I was tacked down until I popped off once more to meet the next challenge. But these days this stray button is stitched securely in place. The garment now has a few more buttons  and several little ones sewn into the expanding fabric. Our family is growing!   I’m so blessed to be part of it.

    Dear Amy,

    The Spirit led me to you and your site in a most extraordinary — and whimsical — way. It was the first of only two results, based on three searchwords: Magoo, East, and cane. I landed at the entry posted on my 60th birthday: November 22, 2011!

    I knew immediately why I’d been led. Yesterday I began praying to meet the right people. Your prayer on that entry included “Help me to make the right contacts.”

    Your prayer also included the words “order my steps.” The better half of my life’s work is called “the hourly sabbath.” Its purpose is to make daily appointments with God in order to get as close to God as He desires and allows, and each appointment brings us one step closer.

    If the Spirit moves thee as well, I’d love to begin a Godly conversation. My prayer is that He will liberate me from my current circumstances in time for my 61st birthday, which this year is also Thanksgiving Day. This also means making the right contacts, always a good thing for “visionaries” like us. Get it?!

    Mrs. Magoo, from what I’m able to tell, shares my belief in God’s sense of humor, and when we get there, we’ll not be too surprised to hear outrageous puns, and all the angelic groaning thereof.

    Hi John,
    So glad that you liked the message I wrote that day! My life is full of Mrs. Magoo moments. =)
    Why, I had just another one yesterday! God does have a sense of humor and loves to laugh with us.
    I love connecting with new people! Do you have a cane? I use whimsical to describe myself sometimes. ha ha.
    Enjoy your day and the Magoo moments God places in your life. =)
    Come back and check out my site again.

    I would like to get to visit with you on email. I too am
    blind, married, and three kids all over eighteen. Married to a pastor, with a feeding ministry, who tries to do to much and be my guide dog at the same time.
    I am trying to write a book about our life in the ministry and all the miracles that take place. Just thought I would ask some questions on how you do your writing. I still can’t navigate facebook and some of the other things. My husband did this for me. I can do email pretty good tho. If you can reply that would be awesome.
    Thanks for your time,
    Jena Fellers
