I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner.

My children, Kathy and Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom’s heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. Plus, I am now Meemaw to Austin and Alex!

The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her a lot! Here’s Mom showing that loving and special smile.


My sweet Mom

Here’s a photo of  Dad with his girls. It was taken at Disney World on his 80th birthday. The Lord called Dad home in early 2016, but this will always be a wonderful memory for us girls.

Dad lived in Florida, where three of my sisters live. My other sister lives in the Northeast. God has also blessed Rick and me with a wonderful church family and also a local family: a group of very close-knit friends.

I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can’t manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. Besides some personal and household items, my current projects in progress include blankets of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes and hats, scarves, and blankets for homeless shelters.

May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face shine on us…
—Psalm 67:1

  1. Thank you for visiting mine and my sister’s blog and also for liking my art post, Mrs. Popescu! 🙂 God bless you, girl!!!! ^.^

    YES!!! Love that! He is indeed coming back and I believe it’s VERY soon. 🙂 It’s gonna be awesome for those who truly know Him! 🙂


    • P.H., I have absolutely no artistic talent and I truly admire people like you and your sister who are able to capture people, animals and landscapes in such a real and vivid manner. I do crochet quite a lot but my pieces are basic, basic, basic… Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! Blessings to you both!


      • Thank you for that very nice compliment. 🙂 My crocheting is very VERY basic as well. 😉 I could probably do it but I just never really feel like taking the time to crochet. My hands are much for comfortable grasping a pencil or petting a dog.
        Your welcome and same to you! ^.^


    • Dr. Ryzek, thank YOU for blessing me so much with your mercy series. I just started “following” your blog because I am looking forward to all your wonderful teaching posts.



  2. Love your phrase about being the bottom two corners of the triangle with God at the top! I too live with Chronic Illness (CFS). Amazing how many of us there are!


    • I borrowed the triangle idea from a good friend of ours who described his marriage that way. I’m sorry to hear you also have to deal with CFS, but then like you pointed out, there are a lot of us out there!

      Blessings to you!


  3. I want to thank you for your inspiration to us all. In your times of trouble and infliction you teach us to stay focused above and upon the Word of God. No greater message could be found, and no greater testimony had, than to witness for God when we, ourselves, are troubled.

    May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you, your family and friends always.

    Yours in Christ;


    • Michael, thank you for stopping by and commenting. Your words were an encouragement to me! I love the way God uses us in the lives of others. Only through Him am I able to do any kind of writing, and He enables me for the task every single time.

      I pray your blessing back to you and yours!


      • You are quite welcome. I am pleased you found my word encouraging…. It is true, that only through our Lord and Savior are we able to meet our daily works and deeds. He is our strength in our hour of need.

        Thank you for the blessings, Anna.

        Now may the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you and yours. May His face shine upon you and may His light shine brightly in your life…

        Yours in Jesus;


  4. Hi Anna,

    Thanks for following OL! I really appreciate it, since I’m new and just starting my blogging journey.

    May I ask how do I contact you?

    I am meaning to send you the free ebook I promised to my followers since you followed organizedlunacy.net.

    Thank you so much and I look forward to your response.
