Inspired

Friday, December 19th, 2008

I was inspired by Anna at Pleasant View Schoolhouse today. I’ve seen this idea before, but my bathroom doesn’t really have anywhere to put these pretty dishes. The soap dish idea was too good to pass up. I peeked under my sink pretty sure that I had at least one of these and came up […]

Works of God Weekend

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Thank you to all of you who participated last week. Reading about what God is doing in your life is a blessing to me and last week was just one of those weeks when I needed to hear it! I appreciate your blessings and stories and the fact that you took time to share. So, […]

A Vintage Christmas Treat~repost

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

I am in charge of our church library. Since it was very much in need of an update, I’ve been weeding out very old books and replacing them with the boxes of donated newer books. One of the books had a familiar title so I quickly peeked through it. The Sword Book of Treasures by […]

Knitting in Prison

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

I picked up Knitting For Peace yesterday because I saw on another blog that this book has a great pattern for an afghan. As I looked through it, I found a section on knitting in prisons. The author explained how inmates knit blankets and hats for charities and how doing so helps them pass the […]

It went well

Thank you for praying and your encouraging words. What a blessing each one of you is to me. They highway was clear–praise the Lord. Lee and I both got teary eyed but no “boo hooing”. Which is ok really. Snivelling in public is my least favorite thing to do. It’s also no fun to be […]

I’m visiting Lee tonight

He’s in the facility he was in when I wrote this. I’m not particularly excited about going. Can I let you in on a little secret? I HATE jail/prison visits. I hate hate hate hate them. This place has cold metal stools attached to the floor. You can’t even move to get comfortable. It’s an […]

Maintaining Purity

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

Do you believe this is an area I have to guard in my life? Me and old married lady? Yep! I’ve noticed the evil one lurking around the corners of my heart the last few weeks too. Bringing things to my mind that I do not need to think about or dwell on. I am […]

Heaven

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long […]
