  1. Celebrating Sisterhood

    by , 05-08-2010 at 03:59 PM (Redeemed & Esteemed)
    I was at a planning meeting for a woman's event last night with eight ladies from our church. I was so struck by the dynamics of our group. Each of us different in so many ways - different personalities, different gifts, different backgrounds and different needs. But as we sat around the table talking, there was such a beautiful sense of oneness, united in Christ.

    These ladies turned my thoughts to another sweet sister. One so different from me, that we often marvel at God, that ...

  2. I choose good for today!

    by , 05-08-2010 at 11:58 AM (Every pearl was once a grain of sand...)
    This is one of those days I woke up knowing my hands would be pretty stiff most of the day. Of course, it is Saturday, when I want to do MY work at home! I have the regular house work to do and the decorating work I want to do. I am playing with the front porch- we built a potting bench and a couple tables last week end! I had so much fun. I dug wood out of the scrap pile, my husband got to play with his bulldozer and push some wood out of the way, I dug out old oak wood and cut it to make ...
  3. So Persecution is a good thing, right?

    by , 05-07-2010 at 12:37 AM (My life in a nutshell)
    Today, for me, started as a typical day. Early this morning I prayed, I prepared for work and thanked God all the way there that I had not been called in the night before. I went in with a smile on my face and in my heart. I had an interview for a job I did not ask for, but was recommended for, and then realized I really would like to have.

  4. Tackling the Pantry

    by , 05-06-2010 at 11:39 PM (I'll put the kettle on!)
    I sat down with pen & paper and wrote down EVERYTHING in my freezer & my pantry. I really want to get organized and start doing meal plans so my grocery lists & expenses are not so big.
    I have entered it in to my iPhone ( my new best friend!!) using a great little free application (called shopshop) that you can write a shopping list & cross it off as you go. I go to different grocery stores and can write a list for each store.
    It also keeps in memory things I have ...
  5. Get your own soda- GULP!

    I struggle with emotions that I feel everyday.

    I get sooo mad when I am tired and the family want, want, want from me all the time. I feel used & unappreciated & when I look at individual examples (always drinking the last of my drink and never filling the cup, leaving me with no toilet paper on the roll, waiting til I sit down until asking me to get them a drink - afterall it is just as far for D. to get up & get it as it is for me! Everyday life in a family proides ...
