Going to Camp

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

  James and I will be leaving for a week of camp on Monday. I’m not sure if I will blog or not between now and then. I have so much to do to get ready to go!   We are both looking so forward to this time away.   We’re going to a family […]

A “little” blessing

Friday, June 29th, 2007

Because I work on my feet all day, I’ve begun wearing Birkenstocks. On the days I wear them to work, my feet and knees never hurt. Due to their price, I own a summer pair and a winter pair. **I found the summer sandals on a very good sale price. Otherwise, I’d have one pair! […]

An opportunity

Friday, June 29th, 2007

Our church has been sponsoring a Bible club in the park on Wednesday nights. We had quite a few un-churched children in our AWANA club last year. Pastor desired to continue  ministering to them. The evenings have been enjoyable. We sing, eat, visit, listen to a Bible lesson, and watch the children play games. Last […]

Keep Playing

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

My Titus 2 friend sent me this email last week. “God is whispering in yours and Lee’s ears “keep playing, keep blogging, keep teaching, keep trusting, keep praying, keep loving” Wishing to encourage her young son’s progress on the piano, a mother took her boy to a Paderewski concert. After they were seated, the mother […]

A Tear Jerker

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Lee sent us each a letter today. James’ letter said, “Give Mom a hug and tell her thank you for taking such good care of us.” I’m sure all Moms everywhere can understand how special getting a thank you is. I was touched that he pointed out to James that I’m doing a good job. […]

Statistically

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Statistically my son is at risk for a troubled youth. Children in fatherless homes are more apt to be involved in drugs, pre-marital sex, and other risky behaviors. Children of incarcerated fathers are at higher risk for being incarcerated themselves. I was doing some research this weekend. Part of my “ducks in a row” I […]

Fear

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Today, I had to call an investigator to ask for their report. We’re trying to get some ducks in a row and I have some papers to gather. I wrote about this investigation here. Calling today was not easy for me. I feel like I don’t want them thinking about us again or wondering what […]

My God will supply

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

From the very first day I knew about this trial, God has brought Philippians 4:19 to mind. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.   Every time I doubt. Every time I feel the panic rising. Every time, his still small voice whispers to my […]

One of those “Single parenting stinks” episodes

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

Last week my washer started pouring black water out of the back. I didn’t realize it was so bad until James came up from the basement and said, “Mom there’s water dripping in the basement. I went down. Pouring better describes the scene I witnessed. A lady at church let me wash a load in […]

I go to the Rock

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

When I wrote this post about God’s name being God my Rock, I remembered a song I enjoy called I go to the Rock. I searched around to see if I could find it. I didn’t find the group I remember singing it. I guess it was on the movie The Preacher’s Wife so I […]
