Works of God Weekend

Friday, December 21st, 2007

  This week my Works of God is his marvelous provision. I am blown away at how good he is–even when I face discouragement or have questions. I wish each of you a blessed Christmas. I pray that your weekend will be relaxed and joyful. Take time to ponder the amazing gift he gave us […]

Lee’s Cologne

Friday, December 21st, 2007

Today, I was wiping out the medicine cabinet above the bathroom sink. A certain little boy has managed to get toothpaste all over the bottom shelf. As I wiped the shelves, I moved Lee’s bottle of cologne.  I took of the cap and inhaled deeply. Mmm…his cologne is SO nice. Then the tears came. I […]

This Christmas, I was given the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire for families in need. I filled it out, but I was struck with the realization that we have what we need. We do. We have some nice things purchased when Lee was working. We have a warm home. James is clothed. We have […]

Lee’s Blessings

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

I’ve mentioned a few times that Lee has been discouraged lately. It seems like a long stretch! When he mentions something he’s learning or that he’s read, it greatly blesses my heart. The other night when he called, he said, “I have a couple of blessings!” He said that he was going to buy new […]

When I first got my e-book together, I emailed Crystal to ask her if I could give away a copy on her blog. She said she would like to promote it for me and asked if I minded. Did I mind? I have this new rule of not turning down blessings, so I said yes. […]

A little entertainment

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

I’ve been trying to do a little more reading. I always love to read and squeeze it in even if I’m so busy. But now, I’m giving myself permission to do a little more reading. I’m currently enjoying the newest Yada Yada prayer group book. When this series first came out, I resisted it. I […]

Christmas break

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

We are on Christmas break this week. I had planned to have school this week, but the Angel Tree scramble added some work to my week and I decided that I would really like to have a calmer week. We’ve accomplished so much this school year. James is solidly reading on a 3rd-4th grade reading […]

Lee’s Cellmate

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

 Lee gets new cell mates often. I don’t know if it’s on purpose or it’s just happening that way for Lee. This cell mate grew up in a church, but as far as Lee can tell, he doesn’t believe much of anything. He seems to be an atheist. Lee has been very discouraged lately. He […]

Catch up chat

Monday, December 17th, 2007

I haven’t had much time to keep everything updated here! The marriage seminar on Thursday was wonderful. Lee and I usually sit toward the front. This time we sat toward the back and we whispered most of the time rather than listen! Oops! One exercise was to  shower your mate with praise. That was special. […]
