perfect timing

This week, I had the opportunity to organize our office closet. Yes, I said “opportunity”. You see, I actually like organizing closets and stuff. Really, I LOVE it. It’s true. As I was sorting through piles of things that had managed to find a home in there, I came across a gem… it was my …

MPS Awareness Day

  May 15th is MPS Awareness Day.  For those of you who have never heard of this disease, you can read more by clicking on this link. I became aware of this disease last summer.  A lady I was in a Bible study with had a granddaughter undergoing testing, but the doctors were not sure …

condensing my thoughts…

Don’t ever believe that what you’ve been through in the past isn’t God’s way of preparing you for the present.  OR that what you’re going through right now isn’t God’s way of preparing you for the future. There’s always a reason.

so, it’s been a week now…

Well, it’s been a week since I returned from the Women’s Retreat.  Actually, as I glance at the clock, I realize it been almost exactly a week, to even the hour!  So, I suppose it’s time to start writing out some of the things that happened, and some of the changes that I’m making.  Definitely …

saw this quote…

Saw this quote on another blog I read…  really liked it… I think it’s so true! So, without further ado: “Why do people choose the substitute over God himself? Probably the most important reason is that it obviates accountability to God. We can meet idols on our own terms because they are our own creations. …

baggage

I have often felt like I carry baggage around with me.  No, not a rolling suitcase-kind-of-baggage, emotional baggage.  You know what I’m talking about, don’t pretend you don’t.  So, in the study I’m doing right now, we had to look over a list of “baggage” and underline what we struggle with, or maybe have recently …

a confession, and other random junk

I think I”ll save the confession for last. So, my Pampered Chef business is about to get started!  My kick off party is on Tuesday evening, and I have a small, yet respectable, amount of people coming.  I tried out the reciepe I’m going to make… it’s so good… mmmm…  I am a little nervous …

my rock jar

I have seen it actually done before… the jar demonstration.  You may know the one I’m talking about. First, you get a big jar.  Then, put some large rocks in it.  It looks full, right? Then you put some smaller rocks in, amazing how they fill up the spaces.  Now it’s full?  Nope. You then …

seeing better.

I was only supposed to prove my husband wrong.  oops. Full story: For a while, my sweet husband has been telling me in his oh-so-subtle-ways (read:  “you’re blind”)  that I need to get my eyes checked.  I thought he was ridiculous, but did secretly admit to myself inside that distance viewing and nighttime viewing were …

hannah’s visitation

Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to be attending the visitation for Hannah, the little 17 month old baby who died from complications of MPS I.  I went with 3 other ladies who were in the Bible study with me when we were introduced to Hannah’s grandmother.  I’m really glad that we went together. …
