A reminder to put your foot down…

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”  Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

A Week In Instagram

My week in the light of Instagram… Yep.  That would be my van. A big ol’ metal rod found its way into my tire. Not a nail. Or a piece of glass.  A big metal rod.  What in the world? Pleasantly, I was stranded at a dear friend’s house, where we were allowed an extra … Continue reading

You Can Take The Boy Away From The Sword…

I confiscated every sword in the house. I was up to my ears in Samurai noises, battle sounds, and the infamous “shing-shing” sound effect of sword play. Moms of boys, aren’t we convinced that the “shing” noise develops in utero? I  am convinced. I took them all.  The nerf swords. The power blazers. The light … Continue reading
