Thanks to Revka, we have a wonderful new graphic for Works of God! Feel free to snag it for your own post. So, what has God been up to in your life this past week? God has been working in my heart to change some of my thoughts and words. I’m praying that I will […]

From Outside the Frame

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

I scrapbook by Ali Edwards explains in a touching way why those of use who scrapbook do it. If you scrapbook you’ll love it. If you don’t, take a peek and maybe you’ll understand what draws us into this hobby. Cool crayon ideas I like the idea of using a mold for making shaped crayons. […]

Pilgrim’s Progress

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

A part of wrapping up our school year includes a final review of the books we’ve read. James tells me what he remembers about the books and I quickly write it down. He will also recite poems and Bible verses he’s learned, tell me what he learned from math, composers, artists, and sing the hymns […]

Swimming Lessons~repost

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

When I was a very small girl, my parents took me to a lake. My mom said the lake was beautiful and placid that day. Mom and Dad watched me toddle to the edge of the smooth water. The instant I reached the edge, a wave splashed over my head. Mom said I screamed inconsolably […]

Pretty Flowers from my yard

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

I was doing some photo practice today and decided to use the flowers I picked the other day. I enjoy bringing in little flowers to brighten up my kitchen. I think they’re pretty sweet. *It appears that lilacs are winning in the poll! They’re my favorite too. I messed up the poll by leaving the […]

God’s Goodness

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

“God’s compassion is bigger than the threats of other people. This, of course, is difficult to see at times. It takes eyes of faith to see God’s strong arms of compassion and anticipate deliverance in times of trouble. But God’s goodness to us is always close, and we need to practice seeing it.” Edward T […]

Sufficient

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Last night I woke up feeling like one of my killer headaches was coming on. I prayed and asked the Lord to please not let me have another headache. I believe I’ve shared that many years ago, I fell at work. I suffered quite a bit of soft tissue damage. I went through a lot […]

Relief

Friday, May 1st, 2009

I haven’t heard from Lee in several days. Yesterday, I started to get worried. I wondered if he was angry with me, or if he wasn’t allowed to write. Then I started thinking about the couple we met at a marriage seminar. He had open heart surgery and she didn’t even know about it. So […]
