A Mighty Fortress~Glad

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

I checked out a Glad CD the other day at the library. I hadn’t listened to them for years. This is a spectacular version of A Might Fortress is Our God. (The video looks like it’s pretty old though!)

Please Pray for Lee’s Roommate

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

I don’t usually put a post up on Sunday and I thought perhaps I’d post this later in the week. However, I figured that if even one or two people look here today it’s worth posting. I’ve shared about Lee’s roommate. You can also read about him here and here. He really needs the Lord. […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, September 10th, 2010

A recipe for Peanut butter balls–sounds good! A recipe for homemade scouring powder–I need to try this one. This is pretty–little poppies on a canvas. That’s about it for this week! James and I have a busy day with homeschool group activities! Tomorrow we’re planning to go to a festival at a local living history […]

How Do I Draw Near to God?/Studying God’s Word

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

We had a special speaker at church on Sunday and one thing he mentioned is that we are to draw near to God. How do we do that? So often in church or Christianity we use our big words and tell people what to do and we skip the how to do it. Here is […]

Mocha Shake

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

One great trick I discovered when I was on the stricter phase of my diet is that coffee and ice foams up really nice in the blender! You can add milk to this if you prefer. I don’t have dairy on the strict phase and this turned out fine without it. Into your blender add: […]

Resources We’re Using for Homeschool This Year/Civil War Study

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

We started school on September 1st. The first two days were just a bit of review and getting back in the habit of our school schedule and routine. I mentioned before that we’re studying the Civil War for history this year. We’re taking a break from the Ambleside rotation to allow James to get a […]

Sunday School Promotion

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

On Sunday, James promoted into the bigger kids Sunday School class. We had to walk through the chapel and  Lee saw James. (This is perfectly acceptable–they didn’t talk.) When I sat down, Lee said, “Why did he go in there?” I whispered, “He’s in 4th grade so he moved up.” I saw a look come […]

What Will It Be Like To Live Without Sin?

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Pastor asked this question a couple weeks ago. I don’t think we can even imagine it can we? I’ve thought about this the past few days and I think in a very small way, I can imagine it just a little. When Lee is in prison/jail, I have a physical burden that I carry. I […]

Button Bracelets~Tutorial

Monday, September 6th, 2010

When my mom came to visit in June, she brought me a button bracelet. I loved it! Here is the one she made for me. (this is the one my mom made for herself) Are you sitting down? These are so easy you’ll laugh! All you need is buttons and elastic cord. The elastic cord […]

Works of God~Count Your Blessings

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

1. I’ve been looking for a dresser for James. Our house is very small and the bedroom are super small. His bedroom has been a pit because his dresser has thin shallow drawers and it just wasn’t working. We looked at the thrift store last week. They are asking nearly $100 for dressers (crazy!). I […]
