Monday’s Meditation – The Patience of the Lord

Monday’s Meditation – Crouching at Your Door

Today I went to visit a friend who had a baby girl five days ago, and due to that wonderful visit, the fun of the Super Bowl last night, and ladies’ Bible study at church tonight, I wasn’t able to post my meditation until now (9:56 pm, CST). Somehow, I think it was meant to […] Read more…

What is a Surprise?

My son usually comes up with some good lines and often I forget to write them down, so that’s why this post is always good for me (if no one else) so that I’ll remember the silly things he says when he grows up. The other day, Will ran up to me and yelled, “Surprise!” […] Read more…

An odd title for a blog entry about the Bible, right? But I have to admit that I didn’t get to my devotions today.

Leah Loves Communion

Last week, we had our once-a-month communion at church. We go up to the altar several people at a time and I handed Leah off to a lady in church because she was tremendously fussy and would just be a distraction. Will heard her fussing in the back of the church and said to me […] Read more…

Yesterday I purchased some children’s vitamin D chewables for Will. He was eager to eat them, and I had to remind him that kids can have only one each day. Later in the day he said, “Grandsons need vitamin D too!” “Yes,” I replied. “And you’re a grandson to Grandpa Ron & Grandma Ann and Grandpa […] Read more…

Sleeping on the Floor

This past Sunday, my husband mentioned in his sermon the fact that we can be thankful for a roof over our head and warm beds, as there are many who do not have beds or have to sleep on the floor, in a foreign country, for example. Will was apparently listening, as he then said […] Read more…
