J-O-Y Sister Swap

Friday, December 17th, 2010

A few years ago, I participated in this sister swap hosted by Carrie and Monica. This year I thought I’d do it again. I was paired with Kelsey who sent my sweet emails and spent time getting to know me. Swapping is fun trying to get to know the other person and think about what […]

Watching Our Words

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Proverbs 10:32  The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable… I read this verse many years ago and it’s convicting to me every time I read it. Those of us who know the Lord know when we aren’t using words to edify and bless don’t we? In my life there are some people who […]

A few more thoughts from my study on grace. They come from Transforming Grace by Jerry Bridges. We constantly receive grace in the place of grace. Like ocean waves, one manifestation of his grace is hardly gone when another arrives. Grace upon grace. John 1:16 We don’t just receive grace but grace upon grace. Another […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

I’m doing very well on my fitness goals. I’m on the strict phase of my eating plan right now and losing pretty good. I’ve lost another 7 lbs from the last time I was on the strict phase. I’m actually tickled to be doing so well during the holiday season. There are so many temptations […]

Why We Need to Praise

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Awhile I ago, I wrote about how to “cast your burdens on the Lord”. Today, I read something that seems to compliment those thoughts and I wanted to share them with you. In How to Pray When You Don’t Know What to Say, Elmer Towns shares why we need to praise.I think that praising God […]

Christmas Decorations

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Here are a few of the decorations around the house. I realized that I have to make a smaller print of the photo of Lee, James, and I for that ornament I finally got!   I’m into chalkboards this year. I’ve had this one for a long time, but I moved it out onto the […]

All is Well

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

We had a really rough week this week. It’s not all things that I can share but it wasn’t fun. I spent a lot of time praying and asking God to please just help me to rest in his sovereignty and be peaceful. I do have a tendency to freak out and fall apart before […]

I took this photo of my decorations for a post and noticed I took a photo of myself! Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

Friday, December 10th, 2010

EZ Socks contacted me and asked me to do a review of their socks. I said I don’t have little ones anymore but they said they didn’t mind. So, I got this super cute pair of socks (which I will give to my baby nephew after this review). They sent us the frog. The socks […]
