About Me

My photo

Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

N is for Nouveau Scarecrow

I love the A to Z challenge for the opportunity to meet and discover some amazing blogs.  One of those is Nouveau Scarecrow by author Michael Cahill.   Michael’s subtitle is “A ragged soul investigating the human condition,” and he does an amazing job of it.  He is a rare talent who has a way of touching other “ragged souls” through his words.

Bob Ross

I left a comment on his blog telling him he was like the Bob Ross of writing to me.   If you have never seen Bob Ross, he too is worth checking out.  Though he died in 1995, his art classes are still available for purchase  and some can be seen on You-tube.  As he painted his "happy little trees," he had a way of teaching and painting that just relaxed you and soothed the soul.  Michael has that same affect on me with his words.  I could go back again and again and reread his posts.  

How many blogs do you feel like that about?

Michale Cahill's prose can also be read at Word Worth, the online magazine of ideas and the arts.


  1. Thanks for the tip on Michael Cahill's blog. I've just visited and I agree with your assessment. Very sensitive and insightful.One blogger who has really grabbed my attention recently is Gunmetal Geisha. Her posts are long but I find them compelling and I relate to them.

    1. Your welcome, DA. I will check out your suggestion as well. Thanks. Maria

  2. I remember Bob Ross. He made painting look so easy. I've found a lot of good blogs through the a-z. This is my 3rd year, and I still check in with bloggers I met that first year. :-)


I delight in hearing your thoughts!
