A Turn in the Road

Weekly, I drive past a place in the road where my son drove his first car off a 50 foot cliff.  Thankfully that afternoon three years ago he survived that crash but his car did not. You see, there was a curve in the road. He continued driving straight and didn't turn with the road.... Continue Reading →

When God Calls You to Stop

Earlier this year God called me to stop working on our house.  Our goal is to move.  To do that we need to get this house ready to sell.  Sometimes it is so hard when He calls us to stop doing a priority or a goal. I remember another difficult time when I needed to... Continue Reading →

Garden Rescue

A few days after I posted Our Garden Failed, a friend presented me with a bag of his home grown tomatoes. I was thrilled! Then he told me to go get some tomato plants. This was good advice from my friend. So I got tomatoes, peppers and a zucchini plant. I was going to plant it all... Continue Reading →

I have major control issues.  One of those areas is finance. I pay the bills each month. I set up our monthly budget. I have earned the trust of my husband to take care of these matters.  This has been my job as manager and administrator of our household. It's rewarding when things are going... Continue Reading →

Those little plants we started indoors from seed looked like they would make it. They looked so green and full of life.  My worry that the garden pests would eat them... Continue Reading →

Discouragment

I have heard so much discouragement lately and honestly, I've been discouraged too. I have been sick for the last couple of weeks. That's why I haven't posted. Whoever heard of getting strep throat in the Summer?  Well, I got it! It really zapped me of my energy. I had to sleep a lot while... Continue Reading →

What I am not praying about?

Sometimes I wonder about what I'm not praying about! It seems like my daily prayers are so narrow and hit only a few things (subjects). For example: I pray about my family's safety all the time, I pray for wisdom for everything going on in my week, and at certain times of year I pray... Continue Reading →
