Teach Them to Your Children

Last night and today I’ve been thinking about how we pass our faith onto our children.  I was a part of a message board discussion started by a professed “non-believer.”  The question posed was aimed at Atheists/Agnostics and asked how to answer God questions that arise from children.  I weighed in on the discussion, notContinue reading “Teach Them to Your Children”

Friendship

Recently, Blue reminded me of this funny little poem by Shel Silverstein call Friendship: I’ve discovered a way to stay friends forever — There’s really nothing to it. I simply tell you what to do And you do it! For a “bossy northerner” like me (a loving title bestowed upon my by my southern friends),Continue reading “Friendship”

Waiting to move

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted.  It’s been awhile since I’ve had anything that I felt was worth saying really.  My family is slowly preparing to move.  Our house is filled with boxes packed with things that aren’t necessities.  Christmas dishes, cd’s, books, knick-knacks, stuff.  Eventually we need to have a yard sale with theContinue reading “Waiting to move”

Empty Wallets and the Empty Tomb

I have some “friends” right now that are in dire straights.  I say “friends” because I don’t know them in real life.  I only know them online.  I’ve never seen their faces, I know them by screen name (usually I can connect a real name) and I don’t even really know where they live.  Yet,Continue reading “Empty Wallets and the Empty Tomb”

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”

Not Me! Monday Ramblings

What to write, what to write…  There are so many things swirling around in my head.  My mom called me today – “so I’ve been reading your blog…”  Yeah mom, there’s stuff in my life I haven’t told you about.  There’s a lot of stuff in my life people don’t know about.  I’m being challenged toContinue reading “Not Me! Monday Ramblings”

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”
