I’m Debra Foster Mayo, often referred to as Debra, Debbie, Nurse Deb, or even Miss Deb, depending on when and where you know me from. It seemed best to introduce myself here as ‘Deb’ and keep it simple.

Through prayer and goal planning, I realized one goal in this phase of my life is to “share what I know.” As God revealed this blog idea to me, I knew in faith to follow it. God’s reminder to seek and study “Whatever is Lovely,” from Philippians 4:8, became the obvious foundation choice for this blog, especially when we can be easily overwhelmed with worldly stressors.

I look forward to sharing more about Whatever is Lovely and encouraging others to do the same. I pray we get to know each other soon, but until then I will be in the garden. Check out my links as content evolves.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

Philippians 4:8 NIV

If you’re like me, you might set goals and then realize you made excuses or got too distracted to consistently work on them when life got busy. My happy snowman here and a cold smoothie don’t really seem to go together at first glance, but it was a reminder that it’s never too late to… Continue reading Happy New Year!
