The Colors of Spring

  The girls and I were coloring at our kitchen table one morning several weeks ago. Crayons slowly emerged from the hard plastic pencil case into piles all over the table. One coloring book offered images of rabbits and ducks and frogs, another Elmo and Zoe and Big Bird. The pages were white and gray…

Contemplating God

Contemplating God

Just wanted to post a quick link to a friend’s most recent blog post. I think we can all relate–that  an attempt at “grasping” who God is can be quite confusing and mind boggling.  It sometimes leaves us wondering “Really? Is it all true?” Yes. Even Christians, Christians who have known God all of their…

My Little Busy Bee

Today’s post will be dedicated to my daughter Ella. As I was looking through some recent photos I realized how many of them were quite funny and completely telling of this little one’s personality. When people ask me about the girls I often describe them in this way: “Ava, my oldest, is VERY emotional. She…

Managing Momma Mondays: Your Emotions from a Biblical Perspective

When I decided, a couple of weeks ago, that I was going to start these posts and title them “Managing Momma Mondays” my intentions were this: 1.) It would create some accountability for me to post at least one day a week and therefore 2.) It would allow you to remember, at least one day…

Nice to have Mommy Back!

How does that saying go, “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”?! Ain’t that the truth. Momma needed some resuscitation this week..hence the picture here… To say I’ve been “unhappy” doesn’t exactly seem fitting…I’ve been sick as a dog is what I’ve been. All week. Since last Sunday night. Today was the first day I…
