The Last Great Generation

I’ve had a lot of time to think these last few months.  And I’ve pondered about GGPa.  I was so blessed to have this man be a part of my life for 8 years.  He was in his late 80’s when I became part of his family, but it wasn’t until his last 3 years…

Just a Smile

I believe it’s because, in a way,  he gave us everything he had.  He gave his time to those who wanted a friendly ear.  He had a smile for everyone who passed by.  He gave it all.

Spread the Love!

It feels as though the whole world is a little less friendly these days.  As all the groups are protesting all the other groups, and as all the politicians bash the other politicians, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in spreading it around.  One little click of a button, and you can feel as…

I Know How It Ends

My husband always laughs at me.  Whenever I get a new book, I read the end of it so that I know how it ends. He can’t believe that I would want to wreck a new story by finding out how it all turns out.  It would drive him nutty to know how it ends…

Gather Together

We have been blessed to have some friends of ours move back to town after almost a decade away.  Real friends.  It is such a huge gift in life to have real friends, isn’t it?  The kind of friends who offer help and actually mean it.  Who truly care about you as a whole person….

On The Outside

We spent a part of this last week at a homeschool event, which means we had to travel.  I don’t know how many of you travel with small children, but I can say that travelling with my particular small children is always an adventure. Our week started with working really hard to get some projects…

Church Like Math Class

Have you ever sat through a sermon that resonated deep down?  Maybe you’ve read a book like that.  Something that really spoke to your soul.  That cemented that God really does love you.  That he’s still here.  Broken bits and all.  That there is an eternal hope for you. I have had many “AHA” moments…

The Power You Have

As I sat in church this Easter Sunday, I was reading ahead of the specified verses for the sermon, and I discovered something new to me. Women were the only ones to help Jesus between the crucifixion and the resurrection.  Now, this may not seem that important, because, really, how hard can it be to…

He Is Faithful

To all of the parents slogging through the trenches of raising littles, I salute you.  Or at least I would if I had the energy to lift my arms. It’s hard, isn’t it, this always being on call?  It feels like we are always being pulled in 60 different directions at once, and we don’t…

I Lost Me

I haven’t posted in a long time.  And I could make excuses about being too busy, or life getting in the way.  But if I’m honest, I just couldn’t.  I lost me.  Somehow, in the chaos that is my life, I just gave up.  I’m not talking about wanting to give up on life altogether….
