NO… NOT CREEPY AT ALL

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your weekend? This past week and including the weekend was very busy for me.  The girls were home, which was very exciting, but rather exhausting.  I had forgotten how much attention, one needs to devote to young people.  Whew! Over the weekend, we were back in Ohio…

HELP! ARE YOU LISTENING?

Hey friends, how are you doing today? I suppose it could be worse, right? Don’t you hate, when that’s said after you’ve shared how you felt? I don’t always enjoy answering that question, because I’ve found most people aren’t interested in the answer.  What if I said I’m not okay today; are you willing to…

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY

Good day friends, how was your weekend? We had a great weekend.  The girls were here! We went thrift shopping (twice! I will share my finds in a later post).  They (not me, of course) needed a few bits of weather appropriate clothing.  We went apple picking, which is always a fun activity.  Unfortunately though,…

HELP! I’M DROWNING!

Hello Friends, can you believe it is the last Friday in the month of May already? This is Friday #4; what has the month brought to your doorstep? So far, just in the past two weeks, we’ve celebrated two birthdays, participated in one Awana graduation and one Homeschool co-op graduation (for which we are grateful…

WE DID IT!

Can you believe it? How quickly time has simply flown by?  Today’s post marks our 100th post!   Wow!! My prayer at the beginning of this journey was, “Lord, please let me be consistent, and please let Your Name be glorified in this.”  Almost two years later, we are here.  To God be the glory.  I…

OH YES, HE LOVES ME

Why do we stray away from You? Was it intentional? Did I wake up one morning and say to myself, “I will stray from the Lord today”? More than likely, it started off slowly, giving in a little here and little there, gradually drifting away.  Lord, sometimes I forget I have an enemy, whose primary…

HERE WE GO AGAIN…

What’s the point of an argument, Lord? Who wins? Is that the point of the argument? For someone to be victorious? A winner and a loser? Although most arguments begin with a point, I believe as it continues it becomes about winning and losing.  Words volleying back and forth and back forth.  Beginning by making…

LOOKING BACK…

I know I’ve said it before, but… Isn’t that a great verse? This verse always reminds me of God’s absolute faithfulness.  When I younger, I used to think that being a Christian was the most ‘unfun’ (yes, I said it), boring life ever to be lived. There seemed to be so many rules; more don’ts…

THE DEFINITION OF ME

Who am I? Am I just Benny’s wife? Am I only Cleo’s and Anna’s mom? Am I a teacher?  Am I stay-at-home mom?  Perhaps I am homeschool mom? Who am I?  Am I all of these?  Or maybe I am none of these… Do my clothes determine who I am? Am I defined by my…

GREAT GRACE

  Did you set any spiritual, physical goals for yourself, in 2017?  I once read somewhere, that we remember life’s high points and low points.  This implies that we remember the very good things or the very bad things that happen in our lives.  Are we able to recall any of the good points? Or…
