1. EVERY single time I start to type “Green Bay” (Packers you know…) I type “baby”. 2. I haven’t been getting dressed til noonish… 3. I’ve been slacking on eating veggies. 4. I spend too much time on Facebook. 5. I think my boys are too cute–especially the little dumpling. 6. I’ve not knit one […]

Did You Ever Have A Circumstance….?

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

The question today in Bible study today was, “Did you ever have a circumstance that you wanted God to change, but instead He changed you?” Hmmm……oh I don’t know what do you think I thought of? I did choose to share today and I didn’t even cry! On the way home, I wondered at myself. […]

Woot Woot~

I’m excited to share with you that baby boy has been nursing for a couple of weeks now. He nursed his first 10 days, until the antibiotics from my Csection complications hit my system and then he refused. I don’t know if it made my skin  smell weird to him, or if my supply was […]

My Garden

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Last summer, Lee re-did much of our lawn. We took down the old chain link fence and put in new dirt and grass. He took down some nasty weed patches and a dead lilac (boo hoo). We also had dead trees removed from our yard. So, it was a major overhaul. We’re not quite done […]

When Your Friend Hurts

Friday, October 11th, 2013

I’ve heard a few prayer requests from hurting people lately and they say things like, “I don’t want to whine.” It makes me sad that they feel they’re whining by asking for prayer support. It made me think of the times when I was so burdened and weighed down by what I was living through […]

Tonight, I was taking baby diapers of the line while enjoying the beautiful Indian summer we’ve been blessed with. I remember my mom saying how she loved seeing baby diapers on the line. I thought she was crazy when I was a kid, but I get her now. I love that they’re getting fresh out […]

What I’m Meditating On…a song actually and it comes to mind every time I worry about James going on the mission trip. (I’m not saying I’m a Newsboys fan….just saying these words have been on my mind all the time lately.) What I’m Thinking…..about a mission trip James wants to go on with the youth […]
