Side effects

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

While we do Lee’s time with him, we’ve acquired some side effects. I gained weight from the stress. I had some bouts with ill health. Our finances haven’t been the best. One of the hardest for me is one that James has acquired. He has become very aware of my location at all times. He […]

Changes

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Last week, I shared with Lee some things others had said to me. They were hurtful and I was “venting” to him. He said,  “You know what? Who cares what anyone else thinks? If I am happy with you and you’re doing what God wants then forget what anyone else says.” That piece of common […]

Bedroom re-do progress

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Awhile ago, I asked for your ideas for master bedrooms. I want to update our room to make it more of a romantic hideaway. Our room is tiny and I have a few challenges, but I am confident that I can find something to do. In the last few years, I’ve really taken a liking […]

Jehovah Metsudhathi~ The LORD My Fortress   Psalm 18:2  The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Which one are you, Mom?

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

Today in church, James was reading the bulletin. Ours have a perforated piece on the side so that you can request a meeting with Pastor, or share a prayer request, etc. To fill it out one would check married or single. James said, “Which one are you, Mom?” I said, “Mom is married, hon.” He […]

Works of God Weekend

Friday, March 14th, 2008

  I had a nice blessing this week. I’ve been working out at the YMCA with a lady from church. After we’re done, we sit in the steam room. The other day she said, “I have a swimsuit you can have.” Mine was about 8 years old! She brought it to me and it fits […]

How to Ask for Forgiveness

Friday, March 14th, 2008

I am reading The Heart of Anger again. We are working through a few issues around here in regard to a little boy’s behavior. I know that the things we’re working on “nipping in the bud” stem from his father’s absence. Yet, they are behaviors that are not going to continue no matter what our […]

I couldn’t resist

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Ok! I’ve said it many times and I still think it’s true. Prison is NOT funny. Nothing to joke about. This cartoon was too funny though. The lady that sent me this is married to a man incarcerated with Lee. She said, “No matter how bad you think your life is, it could always be […]

Lee is learning..

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

…how to type! His class is 2 hours a day for 6 weeks. He said his forearms are hurting from all the typing. Last night he grinned and said, “It is SO fun to be able to type words!” Typing has definitely not been his strong point in the past. This class is actually a […]

Works for Me~Brown Rice

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

We only use brown rice here. (Unless of course someone gives us white rice for free then of course we’ll use it!) I prefer the flavor of brown rice and appreciate the additional health benefits. Here is an article that shows the better nutrients in brown rice. The only very slight drawback is that brown […]
