Lee’s Job

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Things are coming to a head at his job. It’s a LONG story, but the man does not run his business with any sort of integrity and Lee will not be able to work there much longer at all. Promises have not been kept–including things like keeping fuel in his truck so he can deliver […]

Artistic Pursuits~TOS Crew Review

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

  James and I do art appreciation where we learn about famous artists. I’ve been really happy with this element of our schooling. I really feel it was something I lacked in my own education. We’ve done art projects now and then and draw in the nature journal but learning HOW to draw is an […]

James’ Project~Compassion Water Of Life

Monday, November 28th, 2011

For the past 3 (I think it’s 3….) someone has donated to Compassion in James’ name so that he can sponsor a child. Sponsoring a child was a long time dream of his and we are so blessed to have someone who helped us so that James could think outside of himself and care about […]

Works of God

Monday, November 28th, 2011

  After a long weekend of counting your blessings, I’m SURE you have many to share with us right? 🙂 I’m thankful for a warm house. I’m thankful I got to love on my baby nephews this weekend. I’m thankful for Lee’s job–although please pray. There are quite a few things that are SO frustrating […]

But For Your Grace~Repost

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: We’ve sung this song at church for the past year or so. I really enjoy this variation. When they sing, “But for your grace, I would go my way.” I get teary eyed. It’s […]

Feeling Sorry?

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

While we were on our trip, we had lunch with my mom’s best friend. She’s known me since I was a baby. It’s a little weird to be “all grown up” and talking on an adult level with someone who was a teacher and a “Mrs.” Her husband drove semis for many years and while […]
