A few posts ago, I posted about our Night time Chats. After I wrote that, I was reflecting on how good God is to make himself known to my sad little boy. God spoke to my heart while I thanked him for caring for my son. He knows how it feels to have a son […]

Our Covenant God

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Our Covenant God by Kay Arthur is a tremendous study. I learned so much about God, salvation, and marriage in this study. It is very much the “meat” of the Word but definitely worth your time. She writes, “Everything God does is based on His covenant. When you understand how thoroughly the dynamic concept of […]

Honoring my covenant

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

In the years before this incarceration, our marriage was not always pretty. Sometimes it was. There were always threads of love and hope. Joy even. Everything in our lives was not ugly and sad. However, the ugliness and sadness was always lurking under the surface. I knew it was there. I began to study and […]

Does Jesus Care?

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

My Titus 2 friend from church mailed this to me. I received it today. Let me just say I needed it. Have you heard this great song? Does Jesus Care? 1. Does Jesus care when my heart is pained too deeply for mirth and song; As the burdens press and the cares distress, and the […]

A letter to YOU from my husband

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude to you. What a comfort it is to know that people genuinely care without expecting something in return. Many times here in prison the devil tempts me to wonder if God loves me. Then there is a little light shining in the darkness. That is you, your […]

Father’s day

Monday, January 29th, 2007

**Written around Father’s day 2006 and shared with a group of online friends. The last two nights he’s cried and cried over missing daddy at bedtime. I am wondering why these last 2 nights? Not that he hasn’t mentioned it or been sad before. Last night he was singing but it sounded strange so I […]

God Moves in a Mysterious Way

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

God Moves in a Mysterious Way God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea And rides upon the storm. Ye fearful Saints, fresh courage take; The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy and shall break In blessings on your head. His purposes will […]

A little update

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

My husband received a letter from the attorney this week. The attorney said he has reason to believe that the judge is currently considering my husband’s case. Just hearing that makes me tired. It’s not that I don’t want to know. It’s just that the judge could very well agree with the current ruling which […]

My sister is at it again

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I’ve blogged several times about my sister’s encouragment to me. She has done such a wonderful thing by making sure my son can make special days special for me. For my last 2 birthdays, she’s sent money or gift cards so my son can choose a gift for me. She sent him a beautiful teapot […]

Strangler Figs

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I got a letter from my husband today. These plain envelopes stuffed full of notebook papers are our hold on one another. He says he’s feeling better. (Thank you for praying for him.) He wrote about the books he’s reading. Then he sent this illustration and applied it to his life and sin. Strangler figs […]
