A warning

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

“Don’t get attached to any one word. You can substitute ‘Christ’ for presence, if that is more meaningful to you. Christ is your God-essence or the Self, as it is sometimes called in the East. The only difference between Christ and presence is that Christ refers to your indwelling divinity regardless of whether you are […]

Marriage Seminar

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Today is our last marriage seminar at the prison. I’m looking forward to a great day spending time with my husband. If you’d like to pray, please pray that we will be open to whatever God wants to show us. I also am having a little pain in my back and I’m praying that I […]

Mary & Martha

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

I have written about Mary & Martha in the past. Here is one post. I have revisited my thoughts about these sisters recently. This period of my life has put me in a “forced Mary situation.” I firmly believe that we are called to serve and that we should take opportunities to help others. Yes, […]

Spring

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

  What a wonderful blessing that spring has arrived. I was practicing with my camera the other day and discovered that the lilacs will be blooming soon. We had homeschool park day today. The children soaked up the sun and fresh air and the moms reveled in the fact that winter seems to be behind […]

Chicken Fajita Salad

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

I came up with this recipe last year and it’s so yummy. We had this for lunch today…mmm! I have a tendency to do a lot of things to taste so bear with me. If you like more chicken or fewer onions that’s ok. Whatever works for you Chicken Breasts 1/2 to 3/4 of a […]

Score! (or not)

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Yesterday was 1/2 price day at the thrift store. James and I went to see if there were any goodies we needed. I found a red quilted bed spread with shams. It was marked $30.00 so it would have only been $15.00. I looked it over and thought about it, but I only had $10 […]

Fruits of Pride #5

Monday, April 21st, 2008

40. I am divisive. I tend to resist or resent authority. I don’t like other people giving me orders or directions or even guidance and advise. 41. I like to demean or put others down. At times I think people need to be adjusted and put in their place. This includes leaders. I focus on […]

Photography site

I’ve been enjoying this site for historical photos. Everyday they post a photo or two. The one tonight was too cute so I’m linking it.

Encouragement

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Last weekend, James was at Grandma’s house. Lee’s older brother was here from out of town so James went to breakfast with his Uncle and Grandma and Grandpa. When I picked James up, my brother in law said, “You are doing an excellent job with that young man’s reading.” WOW! That felt so good. Of […]

A little glimpse

Friday, April 18th, 2008

   James does not open up very often about all of this. He’s a very good little boy, but I know he hurts as we all do. He doesn’t often talk about things. Sometimes I ask him questions and he answers briefly. He doesn’t want to talk about it. Some of that is being a […]
