I was thinking today that for all the writing and praying I’ve done about my marriage, I’m definitely not the expert. Please don’t think I am! Lately, I pretty much feel like the failure on that topic–if I’m going to be honest with you. I think that no matter how honest I was with myself, […]

Boy Funnies

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

I’m cracking up reading these old stories about silly things James said! The other night my son said,”I’m NEVER going to be a Pastor. All you do is stand up there and talk and say verses.” I said, “Well Pastor does a lot more than that. Remember he came over and looked at the car […]

Today, Lee was watching something on Netflix about jail! I do NOT understand that man sometimes. It was 30 Days and the jail episode. I can’t vouch for language and all subject matter but parts of it were good. Here’s a blog review of the episode. Lee wanted me to watch the visiting scene with […]

This year I added euphorbia to the arrangement and I LOVE it!  I’m not sure which species of euphorbia–apparently there are many. This white wispy plant adds […]

  Any blessings to share?   1. Lee was finally able to get on our insurance since he lives at home–our insurance being provided by the state…. He got eyeglasses finally, his horrible teeth cleaned up, and finally a physical. So far the tests have come back clear although he has blood work today. It’s […]

Prison Knitting & Crafting & Not Getting To Forget

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

A few weeks ago, I read on a forum about crafting programs in prisons. A lot of the comments were negative–the stupid things that people say when they have NO IDEA what prison is like–or the stupid things they say when it’s never touched anyone they know or love. A few ladies were really compassionate […]
