Time Flies

It has been a LONG time since I wrote anything in my blog.  Life has been extremely busy, I’ve had surgery with an almost 1-year recovery time and we’ve built a house, moved in, and started creating a home out of it. Last Thanksgiving I fell through the ceiling from the attic in the new…

Who Can You Encourage Today?

Kindness:  benevolence, humanity, generosity, charity, sympathy,compassion, tenderness, good will Everyone needs kindness in their lives.  Who has God placed in your path or on your mind that needs kindness shown to them in some way or another today? What about the mother who is discouraged and needs to know that someone is praying for her……

Trim Healthy Mama

Last year I started reading a book called Trim Healthy Mama, written by two sisters, Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett.  It was a little bit much to take in… 607 pages of information.  So, since I’m a “give me the bottom line” kind of person and didn’t have a lot of time to read all at…

Forgiven

MULLING OVER IT Have you ever laid in bed at night or taken time out of your day to think about someone who has hurt you and what they’ve done? Do you review a situation over and over again in your mind?  I think that many of us do this.   We might think of how…

The Flood and the Plumber

I hadn’t realized how long it had been since I had logged in and posted something, let alone answered people who responded to my blogs. It’s so easy to get swept away by the activities in life like one can get swept away by a river. it’s time to be far more intentional… I woke…

Going to the City

We live a 12-minute-drive from the closest city.  The word city is relative in people’s minds.  Folks like me who spent years in places like Vancouver, San Diego County, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, New York or any other big city… well, we might call this a very, very small town, indeed.  However, its…

Happy Dance, Happy Dance!

Tonight I didn’t feel like making a big dinner.  Then my husband remembered that he had a meeting tonight.  (We had both forgotten.)  So, while he rushed out the door, I tried a new recipe. I’ve been intrigued by Amish cooking lately.  In fact, I’d like to do some research, purchase a good Amish cookbook…

Hatefulness or Love?

My heart is heavy today as I write this post.  More and more our government and a very vocal, but minority group of people in our country are becoming religiously intolerant and breeding an atmosphere of religious intolerance of one particular kind.  And the media is promoting the same thing.  This post may make some…

Juicing… Does It Work? (Part 1)

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead Recently I watched a movie called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead“.  (You’ll have to put in your name and e-mail address, but if you don’t want to be on their mailing list, you can opt out later.  I haven’t received a bunch of e-mails, if that worries you.)  The movie was a…

Conquering The Paper Monster

I swear that paperwork multiplies overnight when I’m not looking! I was doing so well at getting organized and here I am again looking at piles of papers.  I clearly have not been following my plan.  Instead, because of a busy schedule, paperwork ends up getting shoved onto a book shelf beside my desk.  It’s overwhelming when…
