4 Years

Four years ago, my family was agonizing in a hospital waiting room while I was in surgery.  Thankfully, one of the perks of anesthesia is that you don’t remember that part.  I do remember waking up, though.  There was a nurse at my side, soon followed by my loving husband, and later my mom.  In […]

Here in the Power of Christ I Stand

I had one of those moments during worship this morning.  One of those times where it feels like the words of the preacher or a song are spoken or sung just for me.  This morning it was the invitation song.  That’s the song we sing directly following the sermon and the preacher has encouraged anyone […]

Ten years ago I became a mommy…

My eldest daughter is 10.  A decade. That’s double digits. TEN. How did this happen?  It seems like just yesterday I was admiring our new 8 lb 10 oz worth of perfection: And I was a new mom.  Ready to face the challenge of sleepless nights, dirty diapers and drool.  “Of course, I didn’t know […]

Simplicity

Have you ever had a wake up call?  One where you just felt like you had been slapped in the face?  I had a similar experience this summer. Our family took a wonderful road trip and slowed down our pace of life for 2 weeks.  It was like a taste of what we’ve been missing. […]

I'm not TRYING to be rude……

………and no, I do not have an attention disorder.  Having adult conversations with people these days is SO hard.  It’s not them.  And it’s not that the conversation is too advanced for me.  Most of the time.  It’s just that I’m afraid one of my kids has broken into the bathroom to play in the […]

My little stars…

My little stars…

“My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you.” Psalm 71;23 There is not much sweeter than the voices of children singing songs of praise. And the shepherds were pretty cute too… May you be able to take time during the craziness of the holiday season to enjoy the little moments, such […]
