I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 There’s not much that can be said about the attacks in Paris that hasn’t already been said.  Still, while I don’t want to be fearful for the world my…

It’s been a while… it seems like I’ve had more days where the only time I’ve been on the computer is to pay bills (UGH!), check to see if either of my sons are online (rarely), find directions (my phone GPS isn’t always accurate) or order something from Amazon (expensive).  If I’m able to look…

Sometimes you just NEED a spoonful of Peanut Butter

When I was in college, my dad gave me a check at the beginning of each semester, and it was my job to use it wisely. The check was meant to pay for my tuition, books, housing/rent, food and car. Well, after I got a car my junior year. Anything extra like clothing, concerts, football…

Raise your hand if you’ve you ever felt inundated, confused and distracted.  If you could see me right now, you’d probably see me jumping up and down waving my hands violently like I’m stranded on a desert island and need rescue. No.  Not really.  I mean, no, I’m not jumping up and down waving my hands,…

I’m Guilty

  If I sat down and listed all the things I do wrong, I probably wouldn’t finish until the day I died. I guess I’m a pretty critical, judgmental person. There.  I’ve said it.  I am;  I’m judgmental and overly critical. A lot. The thing is, I’m usually overly judgmental and critical of ME. (Perks…

  This past week we did something we have rarely done over the course of our lives – gone to the fair!  Above and beyond that… we even entered something in the fair, and came away with ribbons!  WooHoo! In April, we bought a couple working hives of bees, and more or less on a…
