Hi — my name is Linda Mowles and this is my husband, Bill Mowles.  My husband is the love of my life and the photographer extraordinaire for most of the pictures you will see in the blog posts.  I am the mother of two and stepmother of one — although in our parlance there is no “step” anywhere!  And, we have five grandchildren with whom we have shared marvelous trips in the RV.

Now, at home, we have two miniature pincher dogs, Cuddles and Snickers, that cause havoc and hysterics all at the same time!  They are often referenced in my blogs as they provide such humorous illustrations.  

For example,  Cuddles likes to get curled up in a blanket, and sometimes that is more difficult than it sounds.  See the post entitled “Hiding in Plain Sight” which contains a video of her hiding in the blanket.  Here is a link to this post.  https://lindamowles.com/2015/08/15/hiding-in-plain-sight/   

We are now taking care of our granddog, Haley, as well.  She is a mixture of breeds but is so very sweet and lovable, she fits right in, although she is quite a bit taller than “the girls”.   Then again, she can be, how shall we say it — a bit destructive!   See the post “I Didn’t Do It!” published October 25, 2016 at https://lindamowles.com/2016/10/25/i-didnt-do-it/

Most importantly, I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and follow Reformed Theology and am a member of a Presbyterian Church in America congregation of believers.  

The purpose of the blog is not really to talk about children, grandchildren or pets — rather, it is to provide thoughts for you to consider regarding our Christian walk, spiritual strength, relationship with the Lord, salvation, justification to name just a few.  I try to link pictures of our world, people, or things with Scriptural truths that would prompt further thought and application to our lives.

See the post “Blueberries for Christ” for an example of using simple things and finding a spiritual application hiding in them.   https://lindamowles.com/2015/08/22/blueberries-for-christ/

If you find the posts to be encouraging, leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I pray that you will enjoy our time together at The Ruminant Scribe – Snapshots of God’s World and Word and that the posts will encourage you to ruminate on your relationship with our Great God, His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, and our Comforter and Guide, the Holy Spirit.

  1. Fran, Thanks so much for your comment. I am glad that you stopped by and I look forward to visiting with you often. We are in a PCA church in Tennessee, although while the children were growing up we attended a United Methodist Church. The Body of Christ is beautiful in all its diversity and yet it is still one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all. Blessings to you and yours.

  2. Linda, I am glad I found you here through your comment on Bruce’s blog. I relate well to your last post, being a great-grandmother, having kept and taught grandchildren for fourteen years (the youngest is now 15, looking forward to her second mission trip this Summer). Those years were spent with them in God’s Word. Almost eighty, I am soon to publish a new book, Child Keeping ~ God’s Blessing to Parents, hoping to capture some of what I learned even after bringing up two children. God’s Word is the main thing parents need, more than shelter, food, and clothing — knowing that He supplies all these. Jerry and I have been in a PCA church; now members of an OPC church in Georgia. I will look forward to reading as you continue to share your experiences. Blessings. Fran 🙂
