Feeling the Pressure

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Lee is feeling the pressure of all our unknowns. His parole officer still has not met with him. She is on vacation until 1 week before his release. ONE WEEK! One week before his release with no questions answered. No plans in place. No knowledge of his rules, his accommodations, his schedule. Nothing. Talk about […]

Lee’s Cellie

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Lee got a new cellie after the stabbing incident. He says this guy is sort of like a kid. He talks all day long. He tells Lee everything. (Things you don’t want to know.) He describes everything in detail. He wants everything exactly perfect. Lee tells me all sorts of funny stories about him. He […]

I have to shake my head at people sometimes. The things people say! I met a lady at James’ Tae Kwon Do class. While the kids do their thing, some of the moms sit around and chat. I usually knit. That’s always a conversation starter. Everyone wonders what I’m working on. One lady is actually […]

Some things I’m looking forward to

Monday, April 28th, 2008

When Lee leaves prison there are a lot of things I will not miss. I am looking forward to a few things. I’m being a bit silly here, and yet they are annoyances that I won’t miss. 1. I am looking forward to talking to my husband without the following repeated interruption,  “this call is […]

Some prayer requests for Lee

Monday, April 28th, 2008

Lee is feeling a lot of pressure right now. It is about 2 weeks before he moves to the lower security facility. He feels all the pressures of the things he has to do when he moves. He’s also still needing to cope with the prison stuff. Here are some requests. 1. That God would […]

Fruits of Pride #6 What humility is not

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

Other posts from this series can be found here. What Humility is NOT- 1. Humility is not denying the gifts and graces that God has given you. God has called you and gifted you, denying those gifts and putting yourself down concerning those gifts is NOT humility but pride. 2. Humility is not a lack […]

Bloomin’ Swap

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

I participated in the Swap from The Homespun Heart again. Last time I made a great bloggy friend Saralynn so I thought I’d enjoy doing this again. This time I was paired with Sorta Frugal. She’s already been an encouragement to me in comments and emails. Thank you. I received a beautiful package last week. […]

My blessings this week

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

  1. I was able to sell a bunch of clothing to a resale store and received a nice check. 2. Lee has been reading Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover and getting very excited about implementing his plan. Which is a huge blessing to me. The way we handle money (as a couple) has been […]

Works of God Weekend

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

  Do you have any blessings this week? I have to admit I was starting to get discouraged about this and haven’t put it up every weekend. Several weekends the Works of God weekend hasn’t had one link or comment. I don’t know if I’m not explaining how to participate clearly, but I do know […]

Marriage Seminar

Friday, April 25th, 2008

We had a wonderful time yesterday. I didn’t get a headache. Thank you for praying! First thing in the morning there was a snafu with some of the women’s registration. The chaplain said several of them were not registered. She had to dig through records and get security clearances for each of them. Thankfully I […]
