A Postion of Prayer

  I got down on my hands and knees in the middle of my living room to pray this morning. I hesitate to even share this because it was such a beautiful, intimate moment with God and sometimes the world of the web seems so very far from beautiful and intimate. Having just returned from…

Which Way do We Go?

       Does it feel like life perpetually brings you to points in which you are forced to stop and consider your options, make choices, choose between to alternatives: That that we are in a place that we have to ask the question, “Which way do I go?”        It’s what Dorothy…

Fun for Fall…And Fall for Fun

     Alright, my post title is a little cheesy. Here’s the deal…it sounded to me like something a ring master would holler out from outside his tent at the circus “All for one and one for all!”…or maybe that was the three musketeers, or some other fanciful characters…nonetheless, I felt like we were at…

When God Answers Prayers

Cute, huh? My MOPS (my mom’s group) friend and co-newsletter creator (for our mom’s group) knows a thing or two about design and took some time out of her very, very busy schedule (and despite being tired and pregnant with baby #2) to create this very cute blog banner for me.  So, Amy M., thank…

Changing Things Up

You may have noticed the change of blog background, color, and template. It’s what I do when I get bored. Sometimes I cut my hair… Sometimes I color my hair… I have been known to repaint rooms…several times actually…until the color fits my mood. Today…well, it was the blog background… The other background was starting…

A Chord of Three Strands…

  There have been a dozen roses sitting on my kitchen table for almost a week now. They have slowly opened and have grown fuller since they were first placed there last Tuesday night…the night before our 8th wedding anniversary for me to find in the morning. I actually did not deserve the roses. Not…

Sacred Sundays: Heavenly Conversations

Sacred Sundays: Heavenly Conversations

     I had the cutest conversation with Ava on the way to church this morning. We were listening to “church music” as the girls call it (a compilation of worship songs on CD that we often sing at church) in lieu of Big Bird (thank heavens for that!) and she picked up on some…

To Mall or Not to Mall…No Longer a Question!

There was a time in my life when the mall + kids equated to an o.k. situation. Alright, let me take that back…There was a time in my life when mall + kid (singular! not plural) equated to an o.k. situation. Like when Ava was a very small baby, still in a stroller and unable…

Sacred Sundays: Rising Above

    I find it slightly ironic that the afternoon that I had planned to write this post about this book that is essentially about choosing joy, being peaceful, focusing on God, that I’m feeling a little….well, irritable.      Why, you may ask, am I feeling irritable?      Oh, you know… female hormones,…

What I DID Do

What I DID Do

     Do you ever get to the end of the day or to the beginning of another and think….”Oh man, I wish I had gotten x, y, and z (or maybe it’s like l, m, n, o, p, q, r and s!) done?      I do that to myself ALL the time. I…
