Laugh or Cry?

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

I’m not sure which. 1st I have been so tired lately. I mean SO tired. I think maybe it has to do with all the balls I have to juggle. I think too that as I’m becoming more balanced and feeling more like a human, perhaps my body is demanding the rest it needs. I […]

Overwhelming

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

I am not one to turn down blessings. However, the answers to prayer and God’s provision are almost overwhelming to me these past few weeks. Last week, I was thinking about the upcoming gift season. Christmas and birthdays. I prayed and asked the Lord for some way to be able to buy gifts. I just […]

My beloved speaks

Sunday, October 15th, 2006

I got this week’s phone call tonight. I missed him so much yesterday. I was pretty sad last night. My feet hurt and I just wanted a foot rub. But then I had to laugh because he didn’t really give foot rubs before. So I guess I’m not really missing anything there. It’s just that […]

Exceedingly Abundantly…

Friday, October 13th, 2006

I was thinking today (while driving our newest blessing) that God is so good to answer our prayers. This car was so much more than a “it would sure be nice”. We needed a vehicle. My son and I prayed for a van or a nicer car. The other day I said “See God knew […]

Fire

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

Cool Autumn days bring burning woodstoves here. I enjoy walking through crisp fallen leaves, inhaling the aroma of wood and smoke. In college, we’d sit around a blazing fire in the rec hall and drink cocoa. Laughing and playing games with friends. Fire can be pleasant and cozy. It can also be painful or frightening. […]

Treasures

Monday, October 9th, 2006

This is the sweet essay my husband sent me. (Edited slightly for grammar) Treasure as defined by the dictionary is our wealth and positions. How sad is this. The things people hold dear like houses, money, and cars are the things that moths and rust  collect on. These are things that will burn in the […]

Just living

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

This week we are just living. We are so enjoying our wonderful blessing of the new car. We went out of town! That was just the best feeling. We also gave a friend a ride. That was a wonderful feeling. (No room for friends in the truck) I am rundown and not feeling physically the […]

Keeping my eyes on Jesus

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

On Sunday, Pastor spoke about Peter walking on the water. As he spoke, I could relate to Peter. Earlier this spring, my husband’s parole officer made horrible accusations against me. She called into question my mothering and social services was called for an investigation. Even though this officer had never met me and knew nothing […]

Dirty bowls

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

There seem to be a lot of dirty mixing bowls and pans in my sink lately. That may not seem different to you, but it is for me. I have a degree in Home Ec and I used to love to bake and cook. Since all of this happened, I have been so tired and […]

Blessings

Sunday, October 1st, 2006

One day last week was one of those “I am not going to make it” sort of days. The last straw was the toilet pouring water out of the tank! I shut off the water and told Pastor. Some men at church have offered to help anyone with things around their homes. I flushed the […]
