My name is Martha. I am a 64-year-old mother of three daughters (and accompanying sons-in-law), grandmother of four girls and two boys. I have been married 42 years (9/21) to Ron.  He was a pastor when I met him and has been, except for our Jamaica years (7) when he taught in a Bible college. He retired for the second time in April 2008 from Hanna City Presbyterian Church (just outside of Peoria, IL). We returned to Tyler, TX where our home has been since 1988.  Now we are “honorably retired”.   The time has flown! We have lived in Ft. Lauderdale, FL; Mandeville, Jamaica; St. Petersburg, FL; Miami, FL, Tyler, TX; and Hanna City, IL. If anyone would have told me how fast my life would go (and I guess they did) I wouldn’t have believed them! I still don’t feel like a grown-up.

As for the blog title, the scraps refers to my love of quilting, more specifically to the piecing process.  The rambles refers to my tendency to ramble.
