Day 6 – Today I Pray

Today I’m going skiing after 30 years of avoidance.  The last time I went I fell off the ski lift – didn’t even make it to the top of the mountain before I took a spill.  This sport will probably not be my forte, but I have been convinced to give it a try.  After… Continue reading Day 6 – Today I Pray

Day 5 – What Will the Neighbors Think?

I have often joked that wherever we go, we are kind of like the Beverly Hillbillies.  I should just blare that music from our car when we enter the neighborhood. I’m looking for a house right now.  I think maybe we should move out into the country! We are loud and busy and just a… Continue reading Day 5 – What Will the Neighbors Think?

Day 4 – In Spite of Me

I few years ago I had the privilege of leading a women’s retreat for a church I used to attend.  The title was “In Spite of Me.”  (I cannot take the credit for the title because my friend Phoebe came up with it.)  I loved it.  I still do, because my salvation is totally in… Continue reading Day 4 – In Spite of Me

Day 3 – All About Me

How is it possible we have another snow day?  Not that I’m complaining, but I kind of would like a summer break!  And I feel like we are getting farther and farther behind at school…which, of course, we are. I do see this as God’s provision for me.  I have caught up on my teacher… Continue reading Day 3 – All About Me

Day 3 – Armed and Ready

I have been so excited to get into God’s word that last night I almost just stayed up past midnight getting started.  I probably should have…might have been divine prompting…because this morning has been one mishap after another.  I’m on outfit number 3.  I apparently have 6 single socks with no partner…I searched with that… Continue reading Day 3 – Armed and Ready

It’s Monday…A good time to rejoice

Day 2 (woohoo!) Last night I attended a Bible study on Deuteronomy – I’m loving that book!  I wouldn’t have ever thought that I could get so much out of that book – but Jesus is everywhere in Scripture!  It is such a cool thing to seek and find Him! Last night we talked about… Continue reading It’s Monday…A good time to rejoice

Do I ever have a good week?

  I was asked this morning. “Do I ever have a good week?”  And my answer is, “Absolutely!” I absolutely have good weeks…but not easy weeks.  I have no easy weeks at this point in my life.  And, to be honest, these past several months have been the hardest of my life in many ways. Unexpectedly… Continue reading Do I ever have a good week?

Awful weeks…beware.

We have all had those weeks. You know the ones…where not a single thing goes well.  Where awful seems to be the word that describes most things, if not all things. Last week would qualify as one of those weeks.  Awful, awful, awful. But in just a few short days God has provided some relief…some… Continue reading Awful weeks…beware.
