Thankful for Friends

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

I had a quick conversation with a friend online last week. She has moved away and James is taking care of her lawn. I touched base with her to let her know we were keeping an eye on things and she immediately sent me a payment for him. I told her  I hadn’t touched base […]

Sink Prayers

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

My mom’s favorite place to pray is at the sink. She loves washing dishes and I think it’s because it’s one of the places she takes time to pray. I was washing dishes this morning and praying about some situations we’ve been dealing with the past few months. I prayed for God’s conviction and for […]

I was introduced to these pencils in my rubber stamping days. I still have my original set. These are great for the new coloring book craze and this is a super deal!

I read this article  There’s a lady at the gym and she hates me on  Lysa TerKeurst’s blog today  and it resonated with me. I’ve made this mistake and others have made this mistake about me! Like she says in her post, there are those who make it clear that they don’t like you either by […]

A couple years ago, we had a big big garden. It was my first ever big garden and I was so excited. But the garden flooded a couple times before it was able to get established. The weeds took over. I mean TOOK OVER. It was like a wilderness. Little guy was small and I […]

Beat The Heat

Monday, June 20th, 2016

What are you doing to beat the heat? It’s not horribly hot here but it’s definitely warm. Nathan and I are about to head out to the Dollar Store to find some pool toys for his little blow up pool. I sit outside with him and put my feet in while he plays. It may […]

Happy Friday

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans?   My husband and I get to celebrate our anniversary with a night away. We are looking forward to time to rest and reconnect. We’re thankful for his job, but it makes spending time together difficult! What are you up to?

Walmart Summer Sale

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

Every extra penny saved matters and it’s basically impossible to beat any cash back on top of Walmart’s low prices. So when I heard that Swagbucks is giving you more for every dollar you spend at Walmart, I had to share! That’s right, Swagbucks is making earning Cash Back easier and giving away $1,000 in […]

Encouraging The Encourager

Monday, March 14th, 2016

I like to encourage people. It’s been something I’ve done since I was small. If I see someone who’s having a rough day, I like to send a note or a small token gift to encourage them.   I have been working on letting people know if I’m praying for them. Not only praying for […]

What Are You Up To?

Friday, March 4th, 2016

We are just busy. I think since I’m feeling better, we’re doing a lot more than we had been doing. Which is good in lots of ways and tiring in lots of others. I haven’t done much knitting lately….or reading! I have been working very hard at eBay again and it’s fun but also taking […]
