Here are some posts from 2007 that I would like to share with you.

I’m trying to limit it to 2 per month but I may not have any success….just read what interests you.


Getting To Church on Time a neat story of God helping my husband make it to the prison church service.

 Strangler Figs an illustration of sin in our lives.

Honoring my Covenant quite a bit of the story behind why I stayed.


Holding Hands ways we keep in touch even with Daddy where he is.

Chocolate Cake a yummy illustration


Woo hoo my husband was transferred to a facility in our city.

A Little Girl about a little girl I saw at the store.


Not What We Hoped For  we lost our appeal.

To Tell or Not To Tell? my customer the prison guard.


Phone Calls the expense of prison phone calls is outrageous.

Visiting Lee my family was all here for my brother’s wedding so they visited Lee.


An Opportunity I met a lady at the Church picnic who’s husband is in prison.

Single Parenting Stinks  

(June seemed to have lots of great posts but I won’t list them all here–go take a peek if you like.)


I didn’t know my neighbor is a prison guard?

Every Day our trial continues every day.


Don’t Forget to Breathe  

Preparation another illustration. The end result is here.


What Not To Say


He Waved at Me  he being my prison guard neighbor.



 Comic Relief my funny boy

They Notice the guards notice things about us



Wrapping it Up thoughts on my store’s last day in business.

Please Help Me Not to Be Scared James’ prayer every night.



Christmas Eve at the Prison 

A Vintage Christmas Treat for You a wonderful old story about God’s provision.


As I went through the archives choosing posts for this, I realized how quickly this year passed.It has been a year of tremendous highs and tremendous lows. God has wonderfully provided for us, taught us, and carried us through.

I am always amazed when I check the map. People have come to this blog from all over the world. I pray everytime I see that map that I would be faithful in the opportunities he’s provided for me.

Often, when I check sitemeter, my heart breaks. The google searches that bring people to A Dusty Frame are often sad.

“God help me” “How can I stay married to him?” “God I’m scared.”

I pray for them. I pray that something I’ve written here will point them to God.

Thank you for walking down memory lane with me.

Leave a comment and let me know which post you liked best.
