It’s not me

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

At James’ swim lessons last week, I saw one of my former employees. Her children are in lessons right after James finishes up. We’ve been chatting each morning. It’s fun to catch up. She asked me how things are going. I told her some of it. We talked about whether or not Lee and I […]

How To Handle Trouble

Monday, June 16th, 2008

When Lee and I were in counseling long ago, the pastor gave us a small booklet called, “How to Handle Trouble” by Jay Adams. I was cleaning some things out the other day and flipped through it. I summarized the points on the back flap. God is in the trouble. God is actively doing something […]

Sunday Thoughts

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

As I pray for my husband, I pray that God will make himself evident in his life. I pray that Lee will feel God’s presence and have a desire to learn and grow. He was reading the Bible and studying quite a bit before, but now he works so much and has school. I know […]

Paycheck

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

Lee’s 1st paycheck came in the mail yesterday. What a wonderful feeling I had when I deposited it in the bank this afternoon. The best part is he’s getting one next week too!

The Power of Prayer

Friday, June 13th, 2008

This afternoon, James and I went to the Y. I need to get back in my exercise routine and the treadmill was calling me. I lifted some weights and got on the treadmill. I started reading a book about worship by Dr. David Jeremiah. (It’s very good by the way.) I walked on the treadmill […]

Husbands and Hamburger Helper

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Hamburger Helper was on sale at our grocery store. I had coupons and it was double coupon day. I got 6 boxes of Hamburger Helper for $2.50 total. I personally dislike this boxed item very much. We haven’t purchased Hamburger Helper in years, but Lee is eating real food now and he loves the stuff. […]

I have the best sisters ever!

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

My brother is pretty awesome too! For mother’s day, my sister called James and had a lengthy phone conversation. They went shopping online together and chose something for me. There was much giggling and whispering and mom pretending not to look. Of course I did have to help get James online so I had a […]

Rose Bush

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

In March, I wrote about my rose bushes. They bloomed this week. I’m so excited. They are beautiful and they smell delightful. Every time I pull into the driveway I get a good look at them and smile. Earlier this week, rain destroyed quite a few of the new blooms leaving the bush with frumpy […]
