It’s silly to be sad

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

God’s provision has been so amazing to us for all this time. I am so thankful for each and every person who ever prayed, gave, or shared in any way. I know that the only reason we’ve made it through this is because of God’s wonderful love and provision. As you know I sell on […]

Question of the Day

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

I haven’t asked a question for awhile. Here’s a good one that should have some interesting responses. What fad sucked you in?

Last week, James and I were at the thrift store. While I was checking out, James ran to the bathroom. I heard “Lizzie! Hi”. It was Lucille my elderly friend who taught me to knit. We chatted for a few minutes and she said, “Where’s James?” Lucille used to call me when I had my […]

Thoughts on Little House

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

James and I have been reading through the Little House series. They are listed on Ambleside’s list, but we’d be reading them anyway. We’re reading them slowly with breaks in between to read other books on the list. It’s a special treat for us when it’s time to pick up the next Little House book. […]

Spanish Rice in the Crockpot

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

The other day, I wanted to experiment to see if I could make Spanish Rice in the crockpot and it worked! Here’s what I did for 4 servings. I think you can just double or triple it. It should work the same. 1 c. raw brown rice 3 c. mixed vegetable juice (like V-8) 1 […]

Tropical Traditions Organic Honey~Review & Giveaway

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their organic raw honey to try. Mmm! It’s very nice honey. It’s a little different than regular honey. Since it’s raw, it’s crystallized. It’s not like honey that’s turned sugarey. It seems like a spread. Anyway, it tastes really yummy! I never realized what goes into making honey […]

Works of God

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

This past week was particularly stressful. I almost cracked! Thank you for those who prayed for me. I still feel stressed and tired. I didn’t feel well this weekend and hope I’m not coming down with something nasty! So, I really need to count blessings today. 1. I’m thankful for my family. My sisters, mom, […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Jar of fun–looks like a great gift idea or just something fun for your own house. I like this idea. Make a list of things you want to do before a certain age. I want to try this Log Cabin washcloth pattern. It looks like a great way to use up scrap yarn. Pretty leaves […]

Holding our Breath….

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

So, after I went and got all whiney, my husband got a call from the company he applied at on Monday. He went in for an interview tonight and they’ll let him know after some more interviews tomorrow. Thank you for praying with us!

I think tired best describes me right now. Last week someone said something about it gets hard to endure when a trial goes on for days or weeks or even a year. Right. What about when it’s been 5 years? “Gets hard” doesn’t begin to cover  the bases. I was talking to my mom the […]
