Things have been quiet on the blog lately because we have been getting ready for my husband’s mission trip to Africa……and we are so excited! Continue reading Africa
By no means do I consider myself an expert blogger.
This blog was created a little over a year ago and I just started blogging more seriously 6 months ago. I have taken this process very slowly, taking one small step at a time. In fact, there are some things that I just learned to do over the past 2 weeks, like scheduling posts and changing the fonts up.
Are you carrying around a burden?
Parent…… Are you burdened for your child? Or another family member?
Friend…… Are you burdened for a friend? What about a co-worker?

On Thursday night we celebrated our youngest child’s birthday. Today is her actual birthday. She was 3 years old at 2 am this morning 🙂
We celebrated with cake (and ice-cream which I left in the freezer). While we did not have a “party” our oldest son and his family joined us, along with one set of grandparents (who live nearby) and a dear friend who happened to be in the area.
I’ve seen her before.
At the baseball field, where my children play.
She looks to be 19 or 20. She always looks the same.
Here she comes again, Continue reading The Baseball Field and The Judgement
Last week, I told you how my husband surprised me and took our family out on the town for family night. He did a repeat this week 🙂 You all are going to think that we go out to eat all the time, but we really do not.
This trip was two-fold. My husband has needed a new lunch box for months but has not been able to find the right one.
An encouraging word to help you get through the week…
Have you had any victories this week?
Have you had failures and disappointments this week?
Even though my blog is over a year old, I still consider myself a new blogger.
A few years ago, my husband and I felt led to start a blog. I did a little research on it and we prayed about it for a while. Several months later Blogelina ran an awesome deal that was just to good to turn down (knowing that the Lord had led us in this direction, we felt that this was confirmation). So, we jumped on the offer and I began doing even more research.
So much research in fact that I almost did not pursue the blog (read about that here).
We were able to do a family night last night. My husband text me before getting home from work and asked if we would like to go out to eat. We don’t make a habit of eating out so this was a nice surprise. A few minutes before I got the text I was sitting at the kitchen table getting school schedules figured out and was wondering what in the world we were going to have for supper and when I was going to make it to the grocery store. So, when I got his text, it was a relief. I knew that if we went out to eat we could also hit the grocery store.
