Family Night

Lately, we’ve been trying to enjoy family nights when we can.  Doing something TOGETHER, as a family, when we all can be doing the same thing.  So many nights it seems that we are fractured – little kids playing, someone on the computer, another on the phone, another watching tv, someone else doing chores…  we’reContinue reading “Family Night”

God Sightings

As part of my committment during the season of Lent, I will begin a daily Bible reading that will lead me through the entire Bible.  Through an online community, there is an opportunity for many of us to join together in this committment and discuss our progress.    I am inviting you to join an onlineContinue reading “God Sightings”

Heart’s Cry

My heart has been crying out a lot over the past year.  It’s crying out for so many things – people, situations, my family, our life.  Sometimes I have the words, sometimes I don’t.  Sometimes I laugh to share my heart with Jesus.  Sometimes I cry to share my heart with Jesus.  Sometimes I’m soContinue reading “Heart’s Cry”

Answered Heart Prayers

I am working with my kids on what we call “heart prayers.”  Memorized, routine prayers are fine when just learning to pray or in certain situations.  God, however, wants us to share what is in our hearts.  So when talking to my kids, we call those “heart prayers.”  Anyway, at our church, we have aContinue reading “Answered Heart Prayers”

So am I crazy?

Today I had an experience that I’ve never had before.  I had a psychological exam.  That’s right, an interview and 2 written tests to create a psychological profile.  It’ll be a few weeks before I know if I’m crazy or not…  So why did I have this exam?  It’s just one step on the road toContinue reading “So am I crazy?”

Clean up in aisle 7

So there is this nasty little 24 hour bug going around that has people throwing up.  Gross I know, but so many I know have had it.  We’ve had 3 kids at church get sick (at church).  I’ve been sick.  My oldest daughter, Blue, has been sick.  It’s not fun.  Mommas don’t like it when their kidsContinue reading “Clean up in aisle 7”

Step 4… Again

This past summer I wrote a post about working through Celebrate Recovery Step 4 and my feelings about my husband’s career.  I thought I’d worked through things and was on my way to living life without resentment toward the auto racing industry.  Well, 1 Corinthians 10:12 says “If you think you are standing firm, be carefulContinue reading “Step 4… Again”

It’s been awhile…

It’s been awhile since my last post.  Life as always is crazy.  Crazy beautiful.  God is blessing, teaching and expanding our family.  We have the priviledge of bringing a beautiful teenage girl into our home.  I won’t say much more now, just know that God continues to weave His beautiful tapestry in our family’s life.Continue reading “It’s been awhile…”

Being Intentional

This is a follow-up to my earlier post “Failure to Thrive.”  My little guy saw the doctor today and I am happy to report that he is doing well.  He has gained 1 1/2 pounds in 2 weeks and is a little longer too!  All the lab work came back normal, so no underlying medicalContinue reading “Being Intentional”
