It’s been a fun couple of weeks around here with a new puppy, although, my hands look like they’ve been mutilated by a miniature vampire, all those puppy bites! The puppy, who might have a name soon, after almost 20 days without a name (other […]

Monday Mondays

I really don’t think there’s anything else in the world that can make a bad day better – or even a good day better – than letting puppies crawl all over you!  Tails wagging, licking your face with that oddly skunky but wonderful puppy breath, […]

Help My Unbelief

Help My Unbelief

  Any long-distance plane trip seems to have free seat-back entertainment anymore, but I prefer to spend long flights taking advantage of unadulterated reading time.  Case in point, last week I finished two books, a rarity for me these days. One of the books, Coming Clean: […]

How to Deal with Endings

A few years ago, a family that we spent a lot of time with through homeschooling had to move out of state.  They were pretty well entrenched in the community, their church, and the list of people that were sad to see them go was […]
