A Moment of Still

A long wooden farm table, enough to seat a quiverful and some friends, tea in the cup my oldest daughter chose for me while at the beach with friends, a highlighted, underlined and well-loved Bible open before me, and quiet…my perfect morning. God has blessed me this morning with this beautiful moment of still. A… Continue reading A Moment of Still

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

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.

The Burden of Blessing

Today I am at my home and it is quiet and peaceful and I’m feeling blessed to be here.  The kids are sleeping soundly (and late woohoo!!)  I debated if I should enjoy this blissful quiet asleep or awake.  I opted for awake.  So rarely do I get a moment of solitude and quiet.  I’m… Continue reading The Burden of Blessing

My Life…Living It

Thank you so much for all your encouraging words and prayers.  I feel badly that I have used this blog so often to share my struggles, and lately not as much my blessings. I kinda feel like I’m just plugging along waiting for God to “fix” some things.  He definitely doesn’t work on my schedule…at… Continue reading My Life…Living It

A Father’s Love…

  Tomorrow is Father’s Day. It’ll be my first Father’s Day without my dad.  He passed away in September. Dad was an amazingly humble man.  Generous.  Honorable.  Loyal.  Sacrificial. Dad was a West Point grad, an Army officer who served his country with distinction, a loving husband for over 60 years, and a father to… Continue reading A Father’s Love…

Seriously…

A Serious Love of Honey at MomLifeToday

Just wanted to share this post with you from MomLifeToday.  I hope you are encouraged that no matter your struggle, Jesus will and can be your strength.  No reason to fear.  No reason to fuss.  No reason to sigh. Jesus will truly give us all we need to do all He has called us to do!

And Then There’s Me…

This single parenting thing is so difficult.   I get confused by all the different situations, personalities, struggles, and issues of my children.  I can’t seem to get my feet under me on any of them! And then there’s me. I think I might actually be more confused by my issues, struggles, emotions, and stresses than… Continue reading And Then There’s Me…

Are You Giving UP?

  I was talking with a friend lately about how it feels like for the past 5+ years God has asked me to give up A LOT! Sometimes it feels like all I’m doing is giving up people, things, hopes, and dreams… Sometimes it has felt unbearable and sometimes it has been relatively easy. Sometimes… Continue reading Are You Giving UP?
