Once A Year….Doesn’t Cut It

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

  Once a year, my dad asked for a piano lesson. So, of course I had to drop everything and go to the piano with him. I’d pull out the primer books and set them in front of him. “NO! Not that stuff!” imagine a tone of complete derision. “I want you to teach me […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

  I’ve been taking a break from my diet and eating the phase that allows me more freedom. That’s good–however, I’ve been taking a bit too much freedom! I gained some weight while camping. That’s to be expected since I ate smore’s and cookies! I’m at least maintaining that gain–not gaining more and more. That’s […]

Works of God~Share A Blessing

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Any blessings? 1. Lee’s back to work. 2. We have fans and ice cubes! Phew!! It’s warm! 3. James goes to camp today. I’m praying for him to have a great time but also for the speakers to present God to him in a real way.   What about you?

I Lift Your Name

We sing this song at church and I really like it. I couldn’t find a super version of it on youtube but this one gives you the tune. I have spent some time studying the Names of God and encourage you to do so too! It’s a blessing to learn about God through His powerful […]

Around Here

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

We’re cleaning up the tree that fell on the garage. James is going to church camp next week! I’m thinking I need to get school organized for the upcoming year. It’s been pleasant but I hear it’s going to get hot soon. VBS is coming up–I’m the director! (Yikes) Lee’s back to work. I’m on […]

Field Trip?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

While camping last week, we needed to go to town for bread and milk. On the way back to the camp, we drove past a church I went to as a Jr. High girl. I also went to the school at the church. I said, “Hey there’s a car–let’s stop.” So we knocked on the […]

Family Discussion~Repost from 2009

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

When my family was all here, (boo hoo by the way! I miss them all.) we were discussing our jobs. I think my dear brother was emphasizing his job as the most important. He does have a great job and takes providing for his wife quite seriously! He outlined what each of us did and […]

Tropical Traditions Palm Shortening~Review & Giveaway

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

  Tropical Traditions gave me the opportunity to review their palm shortening. They sent me a free sample and asked me to review it. I am glad to do so because I’ve been trying to find an alternative to shortening. I just don’t bake things that require shortening because I really don’t feel that it’s […]
