Battling Time

by

God established the day and the night and placed the sun and moon in the sky to help us mark off this thing we call “time”.  God gave the Israelites the Sabbath to mark off a week’s time and annual Feasts to help them regularly remember His miracles and sovereignty.  God set time in…(Read More)

“What matters most to you?”  When someone asks me this question, I give the answer: “my relationships with God, my husband and my children.”  Now, doesn’t that sound sweet?  Isn’t that the “right” answer?  I now imagine what would happen if that person then asked me to prove it.  How do I prove…(Read More)

One pet peeve I’ve had as long as I can remember is when I hear people ask children, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My problem isn’t at all with hearing about their interests and dreams. Those are wonderful (and often hilarious) conversations to have! My concern is the…(Read More)

So, yesterday was a pretty terrible day for me.  Nothing external that happened was bad necessarily.  It was mostly just me…emotions running high and hormones running everywhere.  I was absolutely NOT at my best and I knew it.  (Anyone relating here??) But this morning, something miraculous happened!  I got a fresh start!  I woke…(Read More)

I Need a Do-Over

I came across this snippet of thought a few months back, from the time nearly four years ago when I had a two-year-old and an almost one-year-old keeping me very busy. Now, I’m still busy, in a different sort of way. Those two are older, but still have their definite…(Read More)

For over five years I have had the amazing privilege of being a part of two small groups of women. Despite my homebody tendencies and somewhat introverted nature, I have found a safe haven of fun, accountability and genuine friendship with some of the most godly women I know. And in those times where we…(Read More)

Yesterday we (finally!) had some repair work done on our foundation. With the shifting Texas soil and now-decomposing tree roots under the house, the back of the house has gradually been sinking. So, out came the men with the tools and shovels and goodness knows what else for most of the day. It was…(Read More)

Overflowing Love

by

It has been a month of go-go-go for our family, as I’m sure it’s been for yours. Yes, we had Thanksgiving, but truthfully that was the simplest day of the month for us. I mentioned back in September that we were undergoing the licensing process to become foster parents. Well, at…(Read More)
