Little Town of Johnston has Magic Moments

Life offers many magical moments that can be missed. As annoying as it can be, signs requesting “Turn off your cell phone,” can force us to experience more entertainment than expected.

In my new book to be released in September, “Rhinestones on my Flip-Flops,” I highlight the frustration of Martha who was so busy getting ready for Jesus that she missed listening to his teaching. Her sister, Mary, soaked it in, but Martha was distracted and became a stressed-out, mess-up. Hummmmm, know anyone like this? Guilty.


My daddy loved to sit and visit. He always said that people are the best entertainment. Daddy was not much of a talker, but he was a great observer. Even if the technology was available, there is no way my daddy would stare at a smartphone; he experienced many magical moments even in our little town of Johnston.

Even Kitty “Jenks” Has Flip-Flops


“Momma,” said Caroline. I found a sweet kitty in a flower pot in front of Daddy’s office. She is hurt. “Well, Caroline,” I said. “Take her to the Vet.”

Poor, little kitty had a broken leg. After 3 weeks of kitty R&R, she was running, jumping and playing. The once frightened and traumatized kitty is slowly making our home, her home.

We named her Jenks and she is a cutie but she also has “street smarts”. Jenks has no fear and rules in a large way to be such a little kitty. Even Milo, Caroline’s monster kitty runs from Jenks. Yes, her dog, Maggie does, too.

Can we agree that Jenks has had to survive some flip-flops? I think so.

It was an interesting moment when Jenks met our yard dog, Hobie. Hobie is the king of the yard and even follows Thomas to church AND arrives before me.
