Gleaning the Harvest

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

Last week, I updated you all on how I’m doing in this post. I wrote that after an afternoon on the couch asking God to give me wisdom and show me what to do. I had a big lump of stress in my middle. I told the Lord that these burdens do not feel light […]

Thoughts on Enduring Trials

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I received a lovely email this week. The writer mentioned that they appreciated my determination to endure with thankfulness and joy. She noted that perhaps it’s because I’ve had so much to endure that I have lots of practice. I don’t know for sure if I ever just sat down and determined to be joyful […]

Response to Suffering

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

For my birthday, my sister gave me Home To Harmony by Phillip Gulley. I’ve hooted through many of the chapters. It’s about a Quaker pastor’s life when he returns to pastor his childhood church. I’m not sure if I find it so funny because it IS so funny, or because I grew up in the […]

Works of God Weekend

Friday, January 16th, 2009

So, what has God been doing in your life this week? I received a gift from my brother to help pay my bills which is a big blessing. I told him that if I share a prayer request it doesn’t mean I’m asking for anything. He said, “I know but I guess I can send […]

How am I doing?

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

I’m not sure. I was thinking about this the other day. I’m not sure that I could articulate to you or even to myself  how I’m feeling. I’m very tired–very! I haven’t felt well this week. I could be struggling with a bug or it could just be the stress of everything. Someone told me […]

Teaching Doctrine

Monday, January 12th, 2009

I homeschool my son for many reasons. Primarily it is due to our desire to fill his daily life with God’s word. Many days, I’ve struggled with how much time Bible lessons take! I feel like I’m spending so much time on this and we’re not getting to the other stuff! I stopped myself short […]

What I did on Christmas vacation is….

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

The first week of Christmas break, I mostly got ready for Christmas. The second week my wonderful siblings were here. (Minus one–boohoo!) We enjoyed just being together. The third week, I tried to do some of the projects that I had been wanting to learn. #1. Kool-aid dyeing wool. I read on some blog that […]
