Some blessings

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

This past week, I’ve been so full of thankfulness. My Mom taught us to see blessings and to be aware of God’s working in our lives. I’m so thankful for this habit she instilled in us. I “think” that I’ve always been grateful for my blessings. This week though I feel REALLY thankful. It’s so […]

Peace with God

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:   I was cleaning around the kitchen this morning and noticed Lee’s certificate on the refrigerator. He participated in a Prison Fellowship study at the last prison he was in. When he finished he received a completion certificate.  […]

A recent project

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

  I worked on this altered clipboard at the end of our Christmas break. I saw this idea a long time ago and the clipboard has been hanging around for several months.   I wanted some place pretty to keep all the bits of papers that seem to perpetually float around. I also greatly enjoy […]

Actually this isn’t a homeschool post. Just thought I’d “mess with ya” as James says. Yesterday, my former employees and I got together. We had such a nice time visiting with each other and catching up on our news. We haven’t all been together for quite awhile. I mentioned that it’s great that we all […]

Little House in the Big Woods

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

We just finished reading Little House in the Big Woods. It was additional free reading for this year. I loved these books when I was a little girl. I used to be angry that my Mom and Dad hadn’t named me Laura Elizabeth. James adored the book. He began to say, “Should I get ready […]

Help me out?

Monday, January 21st, 2008

Lee and I have been talking about hobbies and things we can do together when he comes home. Our interests and talents are pretty different from one another. We plan to take walks, have a date night, and maybe (!) take ballroom dancing lessons. He wants to do woodworking and thinks that’s what we should […]

I wrote last fall about Lee filing for early release. We knew it was a long shot but figured that he should take every opportunity. He got the reply from the judge this week. Early release has been denied. We didn’t expect it. We knew it probably would not happen. It still hurts and disappoints […]

I shared earlier that Lee and I are reading Changed Into His Image together. Yesterday when I visited him he told me how God is using it in his heart this week. In the chapter we’re working on there is a section about how God humbles us. Jim Berg says 1. He sends us problems […]

    Here is mine

Oh ye of little faith…

Friday, January 18th, 2008

I got a phone call from my chiropractor’s office on Wednesday. No message. I assumed the worst. Something like I owed a bigger co-pay than I’ve been paying or something like that. I wondered how I was going to be able to catch up on that bill. I called today to speak to the person […]
