All Pro Dad~Booksneeze Review

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

  I requested this book from Booksneeze last summer–I’m woefully behind! Lee is actually the one who read this–or parts of it. He mentioned several things he read in it so I know it impressed him. For him to read a book and want to mention anything from it is huge. He’s not a booklover! […]

Around Here

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

I’m reading~ Miss Read A Peaceful Retirement. I started a board in Pinterest for the books I’ve read this year. I’ve actually finished a couple more, but they are reviews so I won’t pin them until my review goes up. I’m working on~the teddy bear for the baby. It’s all knit but I have some […]

Works Of God~Share A Blessing

Monday, January 14th, 2013

  What are some of your latest blessings? 1. God kept Lee safe yesterday. He left to deliver a load and the truck broke down about 30 seconds after he pulled out of the lot where he parks it. We’re thankful he was home and not stuck sitting somewhere. Hopefully it will be repaired today […]

Jesus In San Quentin

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

The other day, I was driving across town and heard about this podcast (which I still need to listen to!). It’s about inmates in San Quentin who support ministries and missionaries. How wonderful! It’s about 23 minutes and I’m going to take time to listen soon. If you take time to listen let me know […]

Tellin’ The Truth~Thursday…

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

  I haven’t shared a Tellin’ The Truth post lately and today is the wrong day! Oh well. When I first found out I was pregnant, I kept up my exercise. I was determined to have a fit pregnancy and not lose all the ground I’ve gained over the past couple of years. I was […]

The Lesson~Suzanne Woods Fisher~Book Review

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Another great Amish fiction book by Suzanne Woods Fisher. I’ve enjoyed reading her books for awhile now and appreciate that her stories are interesting and her characters are real. Her stories aren’t “preachy” or “cheesy” so I always enjoy reading her latest book. This book starts out with a murder and an impulsive Amish girl […]

James had his tonsils and adenoids out yesterday morning. He’s feeling low today. Yesterday, he ate tons of pudding, popsicles, sherbet, and juice. Today, he’s feeling the effects of the big drugs moving out of his system. You can pray for him if you like! I was 14 when I had mine out so I […]

Works Of God~Share A Blessing

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Anyone blessed around here?   I’m thankful we’re almost all better. I’m still coughing some and my throat is sore from coughing! But we’re feeling human. Lee is home this week. YEAH! The sun is shining very brightly–I always prefer sunny winter days. Dreary winter days make me tired! What about you?
