Vestiges of my former self

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Recently, I’ve felt little bits of my former self peeking through. It gives me hope that someday I will get back to the person I was before all this began. I’ve told my friend Gigi that I don’t know if I will ever be myself again. I wonder how much this stress has ruined me. […]

From Outside the Frame

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

I wish Lee were home to make this for me (other reasons too..) I have many (as in embarrassingly too many) old window panes behind the garage. What a perfect thing to do with them. I’d love a greehouse too. I’m always keeping an eye open for quick knitting patterns. This Mile a Minute Scarf […]

Works of God~Monday edition

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

I’m going to have to come up with a new graphic, so we’ll go “graphicless” today. What has God been doing in your life? Have you had any blessings? Any provision you’re thankful for or something new you’ve learned about God? Please share any post from the last month. If you don’t have a blog […]

He Will Deliver

2 Corinthians 1:8-11 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God […]

Pastor went to visit Lee last week. He has to make the appointment 24-36 hours in advance. The visit goes through the chaplain’s office and the paperwork takes awhile to clear. Pastor went to the jail–it’s not in our town. He waited 45 minutes before they told him that Lee was in a class. Pastor […]

Save up your blessings, (That’s all a work of God is by the way….). I’m going to try featuring it on Mondays for now. Of course you can add to it on any day after that until the next week’s is up. Thanks for your input.

Prison Humor

I found this online and actually thought it was a bit funny. Top 10 signs you’re a Correctional Officer 10. When you get home you count everyone in the house. 9. You write disciplinary reports on your kids. 8. When dinner is ready you yell “Chow Time”. 7. You carry your personal keys on a […]

My sister in law gave me this cute doll for Christmas. She has a snowman attached to her, but I’m keeping her out for now because she makes me smile. The cutest thing about her is that our cat curls up next to her to take a nap. I couldnt’ resist taking a photo of […]
