10 Things I love about Jesus (Part 2)

  Here is the second half of my “sermon” πŸ™‚Β  Enjoy!   6) He fills me with His joy. Jesus fills me daily with a joy that can only come from Him. There is certainly no real joy found in this world. It is full of stress and striving, diets and exercise, πŸ˜‰ bills and financial woes, sadness and worry, disease and death, and a host of other things. The things in this world that do bring me joy are […]

10 things I love about Jesus (Part 1)

Happy Birthday to me :)

This past weekend I celebrated my birthday with my family. It was really nice. We worked around the house a little, made a bonfire, and swam. The beginning part of the day involved me resting a little and reading in the beautiful present my kids bought me, a zero-gravity,reclining lawn chair. Scott brought me home a delicious ice cream cake from Dairy Queen, along with some charmingly quaint flowers for my cottage garden! He has made me such a beautiful […]

STATUS: Idk, ttyl, lol

    Texting is a convenient and quick way to chat with someone. I love to be able to text my husband and kidlets to ask them questions and give them information, but are there times when texting is inappropriate? YES πŸ™‚ Texting is inappropriate when you need to really talk to someone. Emotions, feelings, and word emphasis don’t always show up as intended in a text; even if you use an emoticon. πŸ™‚ Facebook posts are a good example […]

Story Time! (July)

      Today I am starting something new. When I first started tossing around ideas for my blog, I thought about doing an interactive story. For example, I would write a few lines, then you, my readers, would add to it through comments on this blog post. Then I would add some more and we would have a fun time seeing how our story develops! My only requirements would be that the story has a G or PG rating. […]

Camping Under the Stars

Camping under the stars…sounds romantic and dreamy, right? As a child I camped out under the stars a few times and it was dreamy and exciting. Of course I was a child then and not responsible for the cooking, clean-up, packing, unpacking and LAUNDRY involved in a camping trip. We are going on a camping trip in a couple of weeks and the mad dash of preparations has begun. From now until we leave I will be planning, preparing food […]

My Family Rocks!

I have the best family! Let me elaborate. πŸ™‚ The other day when I needed a man’s opinion about something so that I could bless my husband, I talked to my brother-in-law Steve. He was such a help to me, and even though we were standing outside getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, he stood patiently and answered my questions. Then yesterday my other brother-in-law, Scott, stopped by our home just to let us know that he loves our family. He […]

5 ways to be Courteous

Have you noticed lately that certain people think that they are the exception to the rule? I mean kudos to their healthy self-image and all, but they still need to follow theΒ  rules. For example, today as I drove through my lovely downtown area, there was a man riding his bike across the crosswalk. Now I have always been told that bikes are to follow the rules of the road like a car would, but maybe this adult guy didn’t […]
