A wonderful Caregiver

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Last night, we were watching a show on TV. I don’t even remember if it was a commercial or a show, but a comment was made, “Too bad there wasn’t a caregiver to take care of the caregivers.” Immediately, I said, “Yeah! It’s too bad there’s not.” A very still voice spoke quietly to my […]

We WILL serve the Lord

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

  When Lee and I were married, we chose this verse for our wedding program.   We had my Dad make sure to share this verse and talk about our desire to create a Christian home.   I bought a plaque with this verse emblazoned on it. I hung it prominently in the living area […]

What did they say?

Friday, March 28th, 2008

I was at the Y yesterday working out. I was lifting weights and waiting for my friend from church to meet up with me. There was an announcement on the loudspeakers and my ears heard, “Attention all staff and inmates….” I almost had to shake my head to clear it. I looked around. Yes, I […]

Rose Bushes

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

  Last summer, my father in law brought over some cuttings from his tea rose bushes. I planted them in the front of the house. I tenderly cared for them all summer. The heat proved to be too much for two of the plants. The middle plant did really well though. I’d water it and […]

Happy Monday

Monday, March 24th, 2008

I trust you each had a blessed Easter. We spent the weekend doing Easter activities and preparing for Sunday company. James and I made resurrection rolls on Friday. Supposedly the marshmallows melt into the roll to leave it empty. Our rolls turned out empty, but the marshmallows oozed all over the baking sheet. Oh well. […]

Honor

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Yesterday at the marriage seminar, we watched  another Gary Smalley video. He said that this concept could change a marriage or any relationship in a relatively short period of time. He held up a violin to represent a marriage gone wrong. The strings were hanging off the front. It looked old and weathered. It was […]

I ate COLLARD GREENS!

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Lunch at the marriage seminar had a Southern flair yesterday. BBQ chicken (which I gave to Lee. I do not like eating meat off of bones. It grosses me out!), Cornbread, pinto beans (Lee gave me his. He cannot stand beans! Aren’t we quite a pair?) And the dreaded Collard Greens. I decided to be […]

A story from the news wires

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

It made me sad and I probably should have skipped it, but it’s an incarceration story and I wanted to share it. A Daughter’s Last Wish

That was fast!

Marriage seminar Thursday is here once more. As far as I know, we’re ready to go. I’m not anticipating any big surprises tomorrow! We’re looking forward to spending the day together. I will be scarce tomorrow, but hope to catch up on Friday.

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

I just received this book this week. I’m already enjoying it. What a blessing to find Biblical encouragement for something I highly value. When it came in the mail, my sweet son said, “MOM! I thought you said we didn’t watch Desperate Housewives.” HAHA! He cracks me up. I had to tell him it was […]
