Day 4 – In Spite of Me

I few years ago I had the privilege of leading a women’s retreat for a church I used to attend.  The title was “In Spite of Me.”  (I cannot take the credit for the title because my friend Phoebe came up with it.)  I loved it.  I still do, because my salvation is totally in… Continue reading Day 4 – In Spite of Me

Day 3 – All About Me

How is it possible we have another snow day?  Not that I’m complaining, but I kind of would like a summer break!  And I feel like we are getting farther and farther behind at school…which, of course, we are. I do see this as God’s provision for me.  I have caught up on my teacher… Continue reading Day 3 – All About Me

Day 3 – Armed and Ready

I have been so excited to get into God’s word that last night I almost just stayed up past midnight getting started.  I probably should have…might have been divine prompting…because this morning has been one mishap after another.  I’m on outfit number 3.  I apparently have 6 single socks with no partner…I searched with that… Continue reading Day 3 – Armed and Ready

It’s Monday…A good time to rejoice

Day 2 (woohoo!) Last night I attended a Bible study on Deuteronomy – I’m loving that book!  I wouldn’t have ever thought that I could get so much out of that book – but Jesus is everywhere in Scripture!  It is such a cool thing to seek and find Him! Last night we talked about… Continue reading It’s Monday…A good time to rejoice

Do I ever have a good week?

  I was asked this morning. “Do I ever have a good week?”  And my answer is, “Absolutely!” I absolutely have good weeks…but not easy weeks.  I have no easy weeks at this point in my life.  And, to be honest, these past several months have been the hardest of my life in many ways. Unexpectedly… Continue reading Do I ever have a good week?

Awful weeks…beware.

We have all had those weeks. You know the ones…where not a single thing goes well.  Where awful seems to be the word that describes most things, if not all things. Last week would qualify as one of those weeks.  Awful, awful, awful. But in just a few short days God has provided some relief…some… Continue reading Awful weeks…beware.

Enough to be Happy and Healthy

   Last evening I had the pleasure of sitting with an eighty-three year old gentleman at a church dinner in the fellowship hall of a lovely little Baptist church.  He was so sweet and kind.  A fellow that clearly had worked hard all his life.  He told me about his grandchildren and attending the dedication… Continue reading Enough to be Happy and Healthy

The Burden of Blessing

Today I am at my home and it is quiet and peaceful and I’m feeling blessed to be here.  The kids are sleeping soundly (and late woohoo!!)  I debated if I should enjoy this blissful quiet asleep or awake.  I opted for awake.  So rarely do I get a moment of solitude and quiet.  I’m… Continue reading The Burden of Blessing

I Need Therapy…of sorts.

This is gonna sound funny….but I feel like I’ve written all this before…its like deja vu in blogging – which is weird.   So if I have said this all before, word for word, forgive me please.   It totally is where I am apparently AGAIN. Right now I should be preparing for my first… Continue reading I Need Therapy…of sorts.

My Life…Living It

Thank you so much for all your encouraging words and prayers.  I feel badly that I have used this blog so often to share my struggles, and lately not as much my blessings. I kinda feel like I’m just plugging along waiting for God to “fix” some things.  He definitely doesn’t work on my schedule…at… Continue reading My Life…Living It
