Noises in the Night

My new neighbors, that I have not had an opportunity to meet due to our summer schedule, had digital cable put in yesterday afternoon. The workers must have hit a power line in their yard because trucks were digging and grinding until 3:00 am! It was so aggravating not being able to sleep!! I read until midnight. Then I must have slept a few hours and …

Laughter Yoga???

Last weekend my former roommates from ASU and I met in Boone for our yearly reunion. We were fortunate to stay in a beautiful mountain home that a friend of mine generously shared with us. Not only was the home and view refreshing, but it is always fun to reminisce on our old stomping grounds, share stories about our lives, and laugh. When we first …

Waiting…Room

Yesterday morning, my daughter and I fled the house early in the morning to get to an orthodontist appointment. In disappointment, I had forgotten to take any reading material with me.

I stayed in the water and I couldn’t …

Summer Breeze

This morning I am sitting in my car with the windows open while the girls are at their final swim practice. Normally I sit and watch them swim or go for a run, but I need to utilize my time today. A gentle cool breeze is flowing through the car as I am writing my blog for the week. The next few days are literally packed full! My final picture needs …

A Little Child Shall Lead Them (Is.11:6)

God is so good to give us children. He knows what we need! Raising children is definitely a tool that God uses in our lives as part of the self centered stripping process! Our children also teach us valuable lessons about God and life. This week my daughters have shown me an incredible example of fearless love. We had new neighbors purchase a house …

God Delivers Me

The Lord arms me with strength (and confidence) and makes my way perfect. Ps. 18:32 Left to myself and my own thinking sometimes when a few things go wrong, I can easily lose sight and give up. Satan knows right when and where to pounce at my weak spots. This weekend I returned home from our July 4th weekend exhausted. Life was beginning to feel like …
