Feeling defeated today

Monday, November 26th, 2007

I am feeling very defeated and down today. I’m trying to praise, trying to let go, trying to just recognize that in one week this whole store closing will be behind me and I will hopefully be able to recuperate. I am physically tired, emotionally tired, and I don’t know what else. I’m also really […]

Marriage Seminar ~November

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

Lee and I enjoyed this time together a few days ago. Life has been so crazy lately that I didn’t get to post about it. I thank you for your prayers for my health issues. They were greatly appreciated. The facilitator had us go around the circle and share what we’re going to be doing […]

Prison handiwork

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

When I visited Lee last week, I walked past a Christmas tree. It was full of beautiful ornaments made by the inmates. These were only $2 a piece. I bought one of each design. I wanted to keep one and share one. So if you’d like one of these angels, please leave a comment here. […]

I have a confession to make…

Saturday, November 24th, 2007

When I mentioned earlier this month that I was going to a retreat, some of you assumed it was a super spiritual retreat. Nope! It was a scrapbooking retreat. Now! We did have a devotional and it was a Christian environment, but it was all about the scrappin’. I was organizing some things from that […]

Are you shopping today?

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

I never shop on this day! I also never have my shop open on this day. I usually have a long quiet weekend. However, with the store closing, this is our “everything goes to 70% off day”. Please pray with me that the store will be busy and that a lot of the leftovers will […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

   (Freedom from Want Norman Rockwell) I’d like to wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving.  (Even if you’re not from America–we all can use a day of thanks right?) I will be hosting some friends who don’t have family in the area.  I plan to make it very casual. Thursday is my only […]

Infectious Diseases

Monday, November 19th, 2007

There is a particularly horrible staph infection in the facility where Lee resides. I am praying for God to keep him safe and healthy. When I googled it it appears that this is a common problem in jails and prisons. I found mentions of it from all states. It travels by body fluid, open sores, […]

I put up a new poll. Please vote! (Indulge me ok?) Tonight, I was perusing blogs and found Barbara had posted a lot of Thanksgiving things which put me right in the Thanksgiving mood! Pop over to Stray Thoughts and have a look. Feel free to leave a comment about what blessings you’re counting this […]

Tithing~even when you’re broke

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

I ran this post idea past my friend Joy when she was here. She said, “Go for it.” I was reared in a home where tithing was done. My parents taught us about giving cheerfully and taught us that God is only asking for 10%–we get to keep 90%. When we got money, we counted […]
