Praying about the situation

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I kept a journal for the years leading up to this incarceration–before I knew that was how God was going to move in our life.I wrote down things I read in the Bible that could apply to Lee. I quickly realized more of the verses applied to ME! (Imagine that!) Several applied to our child […]

Easiest Pickles Ever

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Another yummy recipe from the Amish cookbook. My cucumber vine is plentiful and I’ve eaten too many cucumber sandwiches lately so I had to find something to do with them. I’ll say that the Amish recipes aren’t the most healthy you can eat, but they sure are good! I halved this recipe. I put everything […]

George Muller Lapbook

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

George Muller was a tremendous man of faith. If you search my archives, you’ll see several quotes by him. I read his story along with my devotions last fall and was amazed at his faith. I saw this today and wanted to share it with you in case you’re looking for heroes of the faith […]

A Visit~repost

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I wrote this the first summer Lee was gone. He was in the county jail which is the worst place to be. Prison is better in many ways. Especially visiting! Jail visits with glass between us were horrible. This is one of those things I’m glad I wrote at the time. The emotions and thoughts […]

Homeschooling Resources

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I wanted to share some of my saved links for Homeschooling. I will probably post about my favorite books sometime in the future too, but for now this is enough! It looks like I need to do some more work on the boys section! I also notice that these subjects aren’t in any particular order, […]

Compassion

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

James spent the morning making something to send to our Compassion child. He’s decorating bits of paper so we can mail him something from us. He prays for him every night that he would be healthy and come to know God. We’re preparing to write him a letter today too and get it in the […]

Thank you

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Thank you to those of you who use my Amazon link to order books. I really appreciate you doing that. Yes, I do get some money from your purchases. I looked at my reports today and saw that someone ordered some textbooks (maybe?) and quite a few other books. I really appreciate you using my […]

This and That

Monday, July 28th, 2008

There’s nothing too exciting going on here today. I have housework to do and packages to mail. Tonight our church starts VBS at the park and I’m helping with crowd control. I’ll get to see Lee for about 2 hours before he starts working second shift this week. Then next week, he starts his new […]

Praising God

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Earlier this week, Lee told me he had a surprise for me today. He gave me few clues so I couldn’t imagine what it would be. He had to return to the facility by 7 pm so I knew it couldn’t be anything too huge. I told my friend Gigi that I hoped he wasn’t […]
