One Moment Away From Meltdown

It isn’t the memory I want my boys having of our family vacation. Destin 2014:  The trip our mom got “into it” with the red-headed lady at Wal-Mart. Yes. I did. Oh y’all.  I know better.  I knew better.  But it had been a long day in the car.  Like nineteen hours long.  OK, nine. … Continue reading

Bring Your Babies To Jesus

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them… Luke 18:15 Here’s a snap shot from my conversation with Luke last night while at the ball field: Luke: (pointing to center field) God is out there.

Your Power is in the Package

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.  John 14:26 A few weeks back, I received a text from a former neighbor.  My sweet friend, a mom of four, had purchased … Continue reading

A House Warming Giveaway…For You

Ah ha!  You found me!  Welcome welcome!! I am so excited to have you here…in my new little cyberspace home. It is still a bit unfamiliar.  Boxes are stacked in the back room and I desperately need to hang pictures on the wall, but this is where the Lord has led us.  Same kitchen table, … Continue reading

Play Hard In The Water

I could kill any plant.  Even a cactus is not safe with me. I’m not the neighbor you ask to water your garden while on vacation.  Come to think of it…no one does. (smile) But this spring, I had my heart set on a beautiful front porch.  I dreamed of draping petunias flowing over white … Continue reading
