Details…

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

We knew that Lee should be able to move home sometime in April so we were expecting it soon. I just don’t get my hopes up anymore. That’s a lesson I’ve learned through all this.We can plan and hope but unless the state says so “It ain’t happening.” Lee’s move home involved another city–remember he […]

I Would Have Posted Earlier…..

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

….but I got busy and we had an appointment with the counselor. I also had to homeschool and get some errands run. However, I’m pretty sure you’d like to see the project James worked on last night. It was for today. Ready?  

Ancient Words~A Testimony From Japan

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

When I started this blog, my greatest desire was to minister through our story. At that time it was just about the only way I could do any ministering and I knew that even though I didn’t want to be “out there” with our story, God wanted me to share.  I am always blessed when […]

Latin

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

We’ve been learing Latin for awhile in our homeschool. I intended to teach James Spanish but he didn’t like it at all. I always wanted to learn Spanish so I thought I’d learn while teaching him. After awhile, James said, “Can we just learn Latin?” I can’t imagine what my face looked like when he […]

That’s Not Your Job

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Last week, I asked Lee if he checked the oil in our old car. It’s been leaking oil and we figure it should be fine as long as we keep checking the oil levels. Then I said, “And when was the last time you checked the transmission fluid?” He said, “Hey. I took care of […]

Works of God~Share A Blessing

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Any blessings to share? We’re thankful that Lee has a temp job. 2 days last week and 3 days this week. It’s better than nothing! We’re still praying and working on finding a full time job–hoping it will show up soon! I’m also thankful for sunshine! What about you?

Discontent

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

“Discontent, though few appear to realize it, is sinful, a grievous offense against the Most High. It is an impugning of His wisdom, a denial of His goodness, a rising up of my will against His. To murmur at our lot is to take issue with God’s sovereignty, quarreling as it does with His providence, […]

Suzie Homemaker

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Making our house a home has always been important to me. While Lee was gone, I just couldn’t do so many things. I’d see ideas or recipes and I simply could not pull myself together to do it. In my defense, for much of it I was operating a brick and mortar store, homeschooling my […]

Garden Notebook

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Last summer, I wanted to organize all my garden notes. I usually draw a primitive sketch of where everything is in the garden as I plant. I often come across pretty garden ideas, or info on plants and end up with tons of papers everywhere. Then I can’t find what I want when I need […]
