Dirty Diapers

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

James and I have been reading Boyhood and Beyond for a devotional during Bible time. Actually we read it one day a week and work on the catechism the other days. It’s a really good book and is well written. The stories and points the author makes really hit home and they’re definitely written to […]

New Year’s Goals Update

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

The biggest things on my list of goals were getting more rest and taking care of my health. I’ve been making some progress. I’ve been going to bed quite a bit earlier than I used to. Some nights it’s even 10:30 or 11:00 which surely beats 2:00 doesn’t it? One nice thing I’m noticing is […]

From Outside the Frame

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

I’m going to try moving this to later on in the week since I moved Works of God to Mondays. Do you like these type of posts? I enjoy reading them on other blogs because I never know if I missed something good! Prayer Journals–this sounds like a neat idea. I don’t know if I’ll […]

A little Girl~Repost

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

My son and I were shopping tonight for cleaning stuff, printer ink, etc. I waited for him outside the bathroom while he ran in. A little girl, a complete stranger was waiting for someone too. She looked up at me with sparking happy eyes. “My brother just got out of xyz” (a juvenile prison) “He’s […]

Transferring

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

We think Lee is transferring tomorrow. They don’t tell us for sure. You know, I may whip along side of them and take out two guards and spring my husband free! (If you knew me you’d be howling. I’d never do that anyway, but they’d whip me in an instant!) Anyway, Lee was talking to […]

Robin Lee Hatcher’s A Vote of Confidence Book Review

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

When I read on Robin Lee Hatcher’s blog that she was offering advanced reader copies of her new novel, I was like a 1st grader bouncing up and down in her seat saying, “ooo oooo pick me pick me”. Thankfully, I entered fast enough to be included in the group. I can’t remember when I […]

Now I know why…

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Several years ago, a woman in our church died after a lengthy illness. A few months later her husband asked me where would be the best place to donate her wedding dress. I gave him a few suggestions but I wondered why in the world would he want to get rid of her wedding dress! […]

Works of God

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

*Still no new graphic! What has God been up to in your life this past week? Either leave a link or a comment! I look forward to hearing what God has been doing. Easter was a blessing to me. I always enjoy taking time to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior.
