Miserable Failure

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

That’s me! I am a miserable failure. John Newton summed it up. I am a great sinner, and that Christ is a great Saviour. Last week, I blew it big time. The first thing that happened was that Lee told me something that we may (or may not) be facing in the near future. Instead […]

Listening to the Spirit

Saturday, October 18th, 2008

Today, Lee and I went out for lunch. He was telling me about a guy at work. His wife wants to leave him and he’s understandably upset. Lee said, “You know I am not always good about this, but as soon as he told me that, I knew I had to get the book from […]

James went to a friend’s house for the afternoon so I could catch up on some work. While he was gone, I tried to get a lot of catching up done. Since James was gone, Lee was able to come over and pick up his lunch. (Doesn’t that sound surreal?) I am so thankful when […]

Sharing the Love

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

A few weeks ago, a commentor let me know I had received this award at Chrysalis. I got busy and forgot to add it! This award is created by Crystal at Memoirs of a Mommy in honor of Noah and the donor of this sweet little heart who ENCOURAGES us to SHARE THE LOVE. The […]

Mittens

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Here is the before. Mittens for a giant! They were 14″ long. Someone asked me if I didn’t follow the pattern correctly (haha!) Here they are after. I don’t know if you can see it very well, but they’re considerably smaller. They are a thick yummy felt and I look forward to wearing them! James […]
