My Home

Welcome…to myself

Hello to all my family and friends and to visitors who have come this way. This is my first blog and although I have thought about doing it for some time, I have not until now. I’m really excited about it.

 Jerry and I travel extensively and through the years, I have often kept journals of our travels. Now I will do it on this blog and share it with all of you.

 As most of you know, we live in Crestline, CA. Our home is at 5000 feet in the San Bernardino Mountains. We have lived here five years, and I absolutely love it here. This year, though, we are having Spring instead of winter. There are blooming daffodils in our front yard, the roses and fruit trees are budding. We receive around 40 inches of rain annually, but so far we have had only one heavy rain and our total is less than eight inches.  Although we have had some cold weather, we have enjoyed very warm weather at times. It is probably close to 60 degrees right now. Whether cold or warm, these mountains are splendid. I look out our large windows and feel so grateful that I live here. We are only fifteen miles from the valley where is San Bernardino and Riverside. Travel up the mountains those few miles and it is as though one enters into a new world.

I’m flying up to Sacramento Thursday for our northern ladies conference and we won’t be home until the 6th of March.

Blessings to all of you, whether covered by the massive snow in the east, or reveling in the balmy weather of southern California.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Hi, just wanted to say you have a very nice blog, am gonna add it in my website in the blogs section, but i think you should replace your background with a better one.. but this is just my opinion 🙂


“Can a Woman forget her sucking child,that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands;thy walls are continually before me.”

Isaiah 49:15,16

God is so good and so faithful. Love you Rebecca
