The God who sees

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

Tonight, at Bible study, we went over the chapter on El Roi. I’ve written about this name of God before here. I was reminded again that having a God who sees and cares about our hurts and trials is truly a blessed comfort. We talked quite a bit about Hagar. Do you think she was […]

Mrs. Sharp’s Traditions

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

(click on the photo to enlarge) Mrs. Sharp’s Traditions is a fun book. Mrs. Sharp is a Victorian woman writing to today’s mothers. It’s full of ideas for each month along with charming Victorian illustrations. It’s not necessarily a Christian resource. I don’t think I’d do every little thing in the book. But it has […]

Enjoying some blessings

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

I’ve been enjoying some blessings these past few weeks. First of all the new tires that my Dad paid for. I felt an immediate difference when I pulled out of the parking lot. I’ll need new tires on the front for winter, but that gives me a few months to pray them in. Second, the […]

James enjoys Roxaboxen by Alice McLerran. It is on Ambleside’s Year 0 book list. We’ve read it multiple times. James brought it outside yesterday and asked me to read it again. He said, “I LOVE Roxaboxen.” He has progressed to books at levels beyond Roxaboxen, but it’s such an enjoyable story. He said yesterday, that […]

Angel Tree~ you can help this year

Friday, July 20th, 2007

Our church’s packet for Angel Tree arrived today. It’s mostly informational. After last Christmas, I spoke with Pastor and told him I’d really like to see our church participate in Angel Tree. He told me to go ahead and sign us up. We signed up for 10 children. I’m a little excited to see how […]

A surprise from Daddy

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

When we got home tonight, we found a BIG box on the porch. It was addressed to James. He started whooping and hollering. This boy loves his mail. He read the return address and discovered it was from his Daddy. He giggled and laughed and tried to tear open the box. Mom had to help […]

Godly children of single mothers (Or Fathers)

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

I was so blessed the other night to hear Pastor Charles Stanley say he was raised by a single mother. I never knew that! A wonderful peace and excitement flooded my heart when I heard that. His comment was something like “Don’t tell me you can’t do what’s necessary to raise Godly children. You may […]

I didn’t want to visit today

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

It’s not that I didn’t want to see Lee! I would love to see him all day everyday. It’s just that this week, James has sports camp every morning and VBS every night. Today was my last day off for the week. My back is still killing me. I’m tired and it’s HOT. The prison […]
