Adoption is our story these days… so here is another update in the process! And… faith meets action!!! It’s one thing to say we believe God leading us in a direction and then it’s a different story when it means we have to actually start paying for things!!! Knowing full well the money may never(…)

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 A well-known verse I know, but exactly what I need to be reminded of(…)
I don’t know how it can be 2 years. It does seem so long ago, and yet it still seems so recent. As I look around at the toddlers around me who are the same age as you would have been it reminds me even more of what I’m missing. New words, todder running, potty(…)
So many of you dear readers have faithfully walked with us through the last two years of difficult times. I’m so grateful and so humbled and blessed. It’s not easy to hear the hard stories and the tears and the struggles. But you did. And you’ve offered many words of comfort, prayers and endless hugs(…)
Change is always imminent. I like to think things are stable and under control and smooth sailing. But truth be told I’m not in control of any of it and all of it could change in a moment. I’m not advocating that we all should walk around thinking there is a black cloud above waiting(…)
Happy First Birthday Jussi Wow! It’s been a year. How has it gone so quickly and how does it feel so long ago?
It’s been a while. Posting hasn’t been quite as frequent lately!!! Wow! Time flies when business creeps into your life. Friends recently have commented to me on my blog and writing and state things like, “Well, I couldn’t do it. I’m not a writer.” Sorry to disappoint… I’m not a writer either!
When life gets hard, I just want to go inward. I want to build up a thick wall and hide. I don’t want to talk to people, I don’t want to grow relationships, I don’t want to give of myself or my time or my money. I don’t want to serve others, my husband or(…)
Joy: Poet, Seeker and the Woman who Captivated C.S. Lewis By, Abigail Santamaria I read a short review on this book in the World Magazine which made this book sound very interesting. Also I’ve heard the saying “Behind every great man there is an even greater woman.” With that thought in mind I’ve often wondered(…)
This is an old post… that never got posted. I wrote it when I was pregnant with Avi… it’s crazy to think that was about two years ago. When I found it this afternoon I was going to rewrite the whole thing and only keep the recipe. But I wrote it then, and it brought(…)
rare bird: a memoir of loss and love Anna whiston-Donaldson I feel like I’m on a dark book trend. Books that are sad. Emotional. But also hopeful. Spots of happiness. Sometimes… even redeeming. This and the next book review will be in the same genre. Since we had a week at camp I was(…)
We had an amazing opportunity to travel to White Sulpher Springs for family camp this past week. The week was better than we could have imagined! Top of the list for me was that there was no cooking, no snack making, no food prep what-so-ever!!!! I don’t think I’ve ever had a week out of(…)
I’m Too Young For This!: The Nautural Homone Solution to Enjoy Perimenopause By, Susanne Summers I’m certainly too young for this! I actually just turned 36 about a month ago. I certainly don’t feel 36! In fact… I still think of myself as in my mid to late twenties! I’ve kinda passed that!!!
There has been much uncertainty in life before, will I get invited to the party, did my perm turn out too curly, will he propose, did Dad say yes, will we get the house, when will the baby be born, is the baby deaf, how will we get health insurance, can we pay the mortgage(…)
