A Man Does Not Live Here~Repost

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

I walked through my house the other night. My eyes taking it all in. No one would know that a man does not live here. That startled me. I know a man doesn’t live here. Each night when I go to bed, I remember that. There is no snoring body for me to crawl over. […]

Works of God~Monday Edition

Monday, May 18th, 2009

So, what has God been up to in your life this past week? I’ve been working on saving my posts.  Wow! I should have started that a long time ago! It’s been a blessing to read through some of the old posts and comments that were left. I’m reminded of what Pastor said one time […]

Barnabas Award

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

I was praying about some things about this blog and I thought about an Award. I didn’t want it to be cheesy and I didn’t want to do it “just to do it”. Then I thought about Barnabas and how he stood in the gap and encouraged Paul. Barnabas commended Paul to the believers when […]

I enjoy sharing these links with you! I also enjoy reading them on other blogs. It’s fun to see what others have found interesting right? This is a great idea and since I have approximately 50 windows behind my garage, I should give it a try! Crystal shares great tips for being generous on a […]

**We have a winner. James chose #16 which is Princess of Quite A lot(fun name!) I was given the opportunity to review this book. Since I work at home, I wanted to see what advice she gave. I enjoyed the book and thought it was easy to read and filled with good information. I especially […]

Lean on whom?

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Earlier this week, my sister called to ask if anyone had called me about Dad. I got that rising panicky feeling as I waited for her to elaborate. We thought that he had a stroke because of the symptoms, but no one knew anything for certain. We had to wait while Mom and Dad were […]

Sweet Encouragement

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Lee sent me a card a long time ago that is very sweet. I meant to blog about it but never did. I was cleaning out a file the other day and found it. I don’t toot my own horn, but if my husband does it’s ok right? Ruth: The Proverbs 31 Woman 1. Devoted […]

She’s Proud of Me

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Lee’s parole officer told me she’s proud of me. “Well, if I get to be proud of you.” She’s glad I’m going to the classes she sent me to and that I’m following through and trying to work on things. I told her that of course I’m willing to do what it takes to have […]

Fears~Repost

Monday, May 11th, 2009

I am reading Breaking Free by Beth Moore. It’s the 1st book I’ve read by her and I find it to be a good study. Here is a gem from today’s reading. “God has carefully and graciously allowed some of my fears to come true so that I would discover that I would not disintegrate. […]
