Weight Loss Update

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

I know I didn’t post on Tuesday. Here’s my post for the week. This shows how much weight I’ve lost–especially because it used to be snug.

Shutterfly Christmas Cards

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Shutterfly  offered me an opportunity to share their Christmas card collections with you. For doing so they will offer me free Christmas cards. And you know I like free! I’ve enjoyed looking through their designs. I’m supposed to choose a design and tell you why I chose it. Of course, as I look at their […]

Over the last weeks and months, I feel that I’ve been grappling with God about what am I supposed to be doing? I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that for right now, I need to be here. In my home ministering to the family God has so graciously begun to restore to me. […]

Lee Stuff

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Here’s some stuff about Lee that probably doesn’t go together in one post, but since it’s my blog I guess I can post it. (lol) 1. An employee on first shift was fired last week. Lee applied for the job. Someone with more seniority also applied, but he’s not in the same department as Lee […]

Encouraging Words

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Speaking of Stress (A Really Old Post I Never Posted)

Monday, October 25th, 2010

I wrote this post nearly a year ago. I don’t know why I didn’t post it at the time, but I guess I didn’t feel like I should. I just read this and felt like now was the time to share it. The situation is long past–I don’t even quite remember what it was! But […]

Works of God~Share a Blessing

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Do you have any blessings to share? I shared several blessings last week–you can go back and read them. (please!) We were also blessed to have a visit from my Titus 2 friend. She and her husband are such an encouragement to us! What about you?

I Admit It…

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

I wish I were at Relevant. Other blog conferences look interesting but I could take them or leave them. This one really sounds good. I prayed about going earlier this year. I REALLY wanted to go. It’s a good thing I didn’t. I didn’t know that our situation was going to change. I know that […]
