On February 9, 2016, I had posted my tribute and song dedicated to my friend, Kay Marie (Sisto) Peterson, who was shot to death by her husband on May 26, 2010.

The post is gone but “My Friend K – A Tribute” and the song, “Nowhere To Run”, is on the cd, Still The Same.  I hadn’t realized that I had inadvertently broke that connection.

So……. how are you doing?  Life goes on, right? And hopefully, you are living your life with love and forgiveness.  Kay would have wanted you to.

Just wanted to say hi!  🙂

We’ve been busy between being sick with winter colds and remodeling our flooring in the living room.  Some combination, huh?

I’m excited to tell you that we should be able to start posting my next cd, All I Hear, sometime in March.  So please stay tuned!

love and prayers, Cindi

Jesus Christ loves you.  He loves you so much.

He loves us all, but He does not love the sin in our lives because He knows what it can to do us.

You know too, don’t you?

Please don’t let another day go by without asking Jesus to be your Savior.

Just do it.

Just ask Him, because He loves you, and He’s waiting.

When I was but six years old, my grandfather Captain Tony, on my dad’s side, owned a charter boat off the Marathon Motel & Dock in the Florida Keys.  My grandpa named his charter boat after me, his only granddaughter.  It was called the Cindy-M.

On March 3, 1960, my great-grandfather from Gleason, Wisconsin, caught a 6-foot 8-inch, 55 pound sailfish while fishing on the Cindy-M, and subsequently had it mounted. When he passed away at the age of 94 years old, the sailfish moved to my grandpa’s trailer on Marathon Key. When grandpa passed away, the sailfish moved to my dad’s house here in Duluth.  Before my dad passed away in 2004, he gave the sailfish to my youngest brother here in Duluth.

One summer day I learned that my brother had moved the sailfish to his garage in order to dispose of it because his wife didn’t want it in the house. In a flash, I got my husband to drive over and ask my brother for the sailfish, which he did.

We had just finished painting our living room this beautiful gray color, but when we mounted the sailfish on the wall, surrounded by ocean pictures that my brothers have painted, in various colors of blue, an amazing thing transformed.  It literally looked like it was leaping for joy once again in the ocean, maybe even chasing sardines again. Sailfish are among the fastest creatures in the seas.

I am in the fourth generation to have owned this beautiful sailfish.  It is part of many happy memories growing up.  I would have liked to have him remain free in the ocean, but here he is, gracing my walls.

My best pondering times are sitting in the living room just looking at him.  Besides my happy memories, he is a reminder of our great God, Who in the beginning created all things, Who said, “Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life”……and blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas…..”

How great is our God!
