When It Rains….

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

It pours. Have you ever had one of those months? We’ve had several weeks of one thing after another going wrong or breaking down or costing more than we thought it would cost. Through it all, I’ve thought many times of when Lee was “away” and James and I lived on so very little. Many […]

BRRR…..

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

How is the weather where you live? It’s very cold here! We’re on day 4 of below zero temperatures–or wind chill. Some days it’s been 2 or 4 above actual temperature. For some reason, I seem to still have to go out every day! I’d prefer to stay home and burrow in the blankets with […]

A Vintage Christmas Treat~Repost

Friday, December 21st, 2012

I’ve posted this every Christmas since the year I found it. It’s worth reading again and again. Hearing the goodness of God never gets old! I am in charge of our church library. Since it was very much in need of an update, I’ve been weeding out very old books and replacing them with the […]

A Job Update & A PM Update

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Lee has a driving test at a small trucking company today. He already took the drug test and has spent quite a bit of time talking with the owner. He says that Lee will probably start team driving on Tuesday morning. He said to bring the application in today–you know the part where you check […]

Today

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Today I feel like I’m fighting a heavy spirit. I’m asking the Lord to help me trust about the job/ money situation. That seems to be an hourly battle. I feel like I’m carrying burdens about a lot of things and I don’t know why today is harder than any other day. My heavy spirit […]

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 […]

The News

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

In my post about truck driving school, Christy left a comment saying they’ve been praying for provision for school and wondered if she should still pray. WELL! Today, Lee went to pay the 1st payment and they said they were going to give him a grant. The grant covered everything but books! All of his […]

Trusting

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Two weeks ago, Lee lost his job due to lack of work. They said, “We’ll call you back in a few weeks if we have more work.” We haven’t heard a word yet. Lee doesn’t qualify for unemployment, because he hadn’t earned enough in previous quarters. So many times, over the past days, I’ve prayed, […]

Thankful

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

I am thankful for so many things. I try to practice gratitude on a daily basis. Counting our blessings and thanking God for all things big or “small” keeps our minds focused on Him rather than our circumstances. Believe me–watching our circumstances is not a good thing. One thing for which I’m incredibly grateful for […]

Midweek Blessings

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

We had some more blessings that I wanted to share before Monday! 1. I got a piano student out of the blue. She started yesterday. I may have a couple more starting soon too. 2. The plant manager at Lee’s job handed him his paycheck yesterday and said, “You’re doing a great job. We’re giving […]
