My car

Friday, September 29th, 2006

The truck we’re driving is a 1991. Pretty old. My husband tells me it’s fine to drive out of town. I don’t believe him though! I haven’t left our town since March. I’m not exaggerating. I don’t trust this old truck and I guess if I have to break down I’d rather be in town […]

My son said the other night, “When I hug you it feels like I’m hugging Daddy” Gulp! Oh baby! I told him, “Good, cause daddy wants me to give you all his hugs.” We cuddled quite a bit. Tonight I gave him a big hug and said “This is a hug from Daddy” He squeezed […]

Burdens lifted

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

I guess I did not realize how burdensome not telling my parents was! I have felt like a new woman this week. I’m sure my poor parents don’t feel so great! I just knew that the Lord wanted me to tell them and I obeyed. Burdens are lifted at Calvary as the hymn goes. Sometimes […]

I told my parents

Monday, September 25th, 2006

I’m sure that sounds horrific to you that they did not know. I did not tell them. I chose not to–there were a lot of reasons. Some personal to me, and some personal to things going on in their own lives. I didn’t feel like unloading on them when they were going through such awful […]

Does God give us more than we can handle?

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

Does he? I think so. Lots of times people like to say “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” Well, I don’t agree. I think God indeed gives us more than we can handle. If I could handle it why would I need God? This has been and continues to be so huge. […]

Maintaining Family Ties

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

We send a lot of letters. I send art work, papers from church, information about our daily happenings. My husband has made up worksheets for our son to do. He also sends paper airplanes, origami animals, sketches, and cartoons. For awhile they were playing tic tac toe by mail. We talk on the phone as […]

Romans 8:28

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. This is a verse people repeat to me often. Sometimes it’s maddening! Sometimes I feel like sticking my fingers in my ears and saying “la la la la la” It’s […]

The envelope

Monday, September 18th, 2006

I don’t know how many posts you’ve read here. If you’ve read a few perhaps you have heard about my envelope story. Several times over these past 2 years, I have checked my mailbox at church to find an envelope with my name typed on it. Inside is money. Several times it’s been 2 $100 […]

A blessing due to my stupidity?

Saturday, September 16th, 2006

I have had brain fog for a long time. It comes from stress, having too much to do, exhaustion, etc Well, about a month ago I changed phone companies to save money. I got a bill from the old company but on closer inspection I noticed I had an $82 credit. So I paid $82 […]

All things positive

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

Just wanted to post a positive post. Many of these aren’t just sugar posts. I think you can see that. This time in our lives is not a happy time and the trials, struggles, and learning is not sugar sweet. However, God didn’t promise us a life of all sweet, so for me to pretend […]
