My Favorite Things

I never journal (except in a very limited way on my blogs) and so in an effort to capture some memories of my son’s current personality, I asked him for a list of his favorite things. Here are his answers, verbatim. Favorite Color: I have three colors now: red, blue and yellow. Favorite Snack: Popcorn […] Read more…

Banana Cream Dessert 1 1/4 c. crushed graham crackers 1/2 c. melted butter 3 Tbsp. sugar Mix these ingredients together and press into a 9×9 cake pan or a springform pan. […] Read more…

Two Sparrows

“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31 NKJV Do you ever feel unimportant? Invisible? As […] Read more…

Thomas the Tank Engine and Our Son

In the car on Saturday, W was saying in a silly, rhymy voice, “lazy and slack, lazy and slack”. Then yesterday he told me he wanted to drive Bulstrode when he grew up. I’m fairly certain my son has been watching too much Thomas the Tank Engine :) Here’s the most recent picture of L […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – Proverbs 31:13 – Hard Work and Diligence

This week, I’m continuing my series on the principles of the Proverbs 31 wife. The first meditation was written on Proverbs 31:10-12. “She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.” Proverbs 31:13 Did you know that in Latin, flax means “most useful”? This is what our hands are to be, useful and not […] Read more…

I Dream of…Lifesavers?

The other day, Will told me about his dream. This is how he described it. “In my dream there was a giant, green, talking Lifesaver. And it sucked me up to the ceiling. Then it sucked me back down!” And, as an afterthought… “And then you told me to go to bed.” All this said with enthusiam. […] Read more…

Herbed Parmesan Dinner Rolls

Growing up, my grandmother, mother and all my aunts made bread, buns and cinnamon rolls from scratch. While I haven’t perfected our family method, I got the idea to try my hand at making dinner rolls (mostly) from scratch. I chose a recipe from an old Taste of Home magazine and tweaked it a bit […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation–A Day Late

Please forgive me for not posting yesterday! It seems that it’s the season for colds and my family has been blessed to have them for the last two weeks. Sunday and Monday I felt so weak and tired, so I think the craziness of it all plus being sick caught up to me. After some early bedtimes, […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – The Patience of the Lord

Do you remember the old country song by Alabama called “I’m in a Hurry”? The chorus goes as such: I’m in a hurry to get things done Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun All I really gotta do is live and die But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why. This […] Read more…

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…

Monday’s Meditation – Skipping Devotions

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. There’s my big confession :) Which makes me think, does anyone else struggle with doing their devotions on a day-to-day basis? I ask God to prick my conscience when I skip […] Read more…
