The Restoration Project

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I've missed you. A lot of been going on in my life and with Reflections of Hope Ministries as I'm sure your life too! I won't share all the details today, but did want to talk to you about Christian Woman's Soul (my other ministry) and the exciting events going on within this ministry over the past year. Mostly, I've been working on planning a women's overnight retreat. Doesn't that sound like fun?


You can always find Christians Woman's Soul on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ChristianWomansSoul

Until next time, Karen


Where do I start?

Saturday, August 3, 2013

Another sleepless night … thoughts racing in my mind while fatigue’s attacking the body, insomnia is keeping my eyes open. However, tonight is special because God answered a question for me. The thing is, I've never inquired, at least, out loud … hmm. I've probably talked to friends about it, but never directly said “God, why do I feel your presence more during the wee hours of the night when others are sleeping? Why do I feel more inspired to express my love, trust and hope in You in written form while sitting alone in the shadows of the night?”

The Conductor's Daughter - a Layover in Omaha

Saturday, June 1, 2013

It's 3 am and sleep isn't my friend tonight though I'm really tired. Twenty, maybe thirty minutes of rest is all I was allowed. I guess I have a lot on my mind. Sat outside for a little while - it's always so peaceful. Listened to the clickety-clack of the train in the distance and the lonely sound of the whistle in the still of the night.

Approach to rail yard in Omaha, NE
Thought about my father who was a conductor on the passenger trains before people turned to other modes of transportation. I had a family pass so I'd ride with him often on a route to Omaha. I'd feel real important sitting in my seat watching him work. He looked so handsome in his uniform and his hat, I really liked his hat with gold bar on it. He'd walk down the aisles greeting each passenger personally as he used his hole punch on their ticket to mark that portion of their route.
