In Other Words

“What makes life on this frightful sod so exquisite is God’s merciful propensity to perform divine tasks amid deeply flawed people.” ~ Beth Moore, LPM Blog ~   Throughout this trial, I have come to realize that God has something big in store for Lee and I. I firmly believe that if God had no […]

Sick Little Boy

Monday, May 14th, 2007

James woke up sick today. Within minutes my plan for the day was out the window. All morning, the phone rang. I had to stop and care for James, answer the phone, try to get some housework done. I was tired too. I struggled all day with the feeling that I was getting nothing done. […]

A little thing

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Sometimes it’s the little things about Lee that I miss. Hearing him come home at night. Watching him mow the lawn and admiring his muscles (!), watching him be a good Daddy, his laugh. When he gets really tickled about something he laughs like Snidley Wiplash on the Dudley Do Right cartoon. Yesterday when I […]

Mother’s Day was sweet

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

I hope when I posted the first Mother’s Day post, you didn’t think I was miserable over Mother’s Day. I was not. I really truly just wanted to mention how odd the husband thing felt. For some reason, the husband’s didn’t speak about how good their wives were as mothers. I don’t know why!? James […]

7 things

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

I was tagged long ago for this 7 things meme by Kimberly at Organized Chaos I haven’t really set up this blog as a typical blog including all the “blog” stuff like memes and such. I thought I could be a good sport and play along though. 7 things about me should be pretty easy […]

Mother’s Day

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

My sister and my son have made plans for my Mother’s Day gift. I think that James told her we have a tea and eat chocolate for Mother’s Day. He’s so sweet. I told him that would be perfect! Mother’s Day isn’t too hard of a holiday for me. I’m James’ mom and he and […]

Moved

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Lee was moved into a cell yesterday. He says it’s so quiet and he can rest better. He can also spread out his books to study or read better. Lee started a Bible study correspondence course now that he can spread out and study. His “celly” is ok so far. He’s an older guy which […]

To the new bride

Tuesday, May 8th, 2007

Christine at Fruit in Season asked what advice you’d give to a new bride. Very shortly in my family there will be a new bride! So I’m writing this to anyone that is married, but especially to our new sister Katherine. 1. Spend time establishing your days in God’s Word. Don’t neglect being the woman […]

More encouragement

Monday, May 7th, 2007

More encouragement from my visit on Sunday. They are just 2 tidbits that although they may seem “small” are huge differences in Lee’s life. First of all I had received a little bit of money. He said to me abruptly in the middle of the conversation, “Oh, I was thinking about this. You ARE going […]
