Eve’s Nasty Hand-Me-Downs

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Two years old and full of spunk – she is the 26 lb version of her momma. She loves her Disney princesses and playing dress up. When she hears music, she flies to her room, digs through her dress-up basket, and comes running with her gown of choice. It is usually the pink one with…

Fields of Grace

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

It is warm. The fall sun still has enough heat to warm me as the early afternoon breeze whips around the side of my house. My world is still. A few clicks of a nearby grasshopper and the rattle of vacant swings are the only sounds keeping my thoughts company. I let the fall air…

Hearing God: Part 1

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

In several of my previous posts, I have used the phrase, “I heard God say.” It is a bold thing to declare that you have heard the voice of the Lord. While I am confident that I know His voice and recognize when He is speaking to me, it hasn’t always been this way. I…

When Love Runs

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

“Mommmmaaaaa!!!” There is terror in his voice. I jump up and stumble towards the door bashing my thigh into the footboard of our bed. I put my hands on the doorframe to steady myself and open my eyes for the first time. Thunder is crashing outside, and the wind is shrieking. MOOOOmmmmaaa!! He is crying…

Dear Church: We Have Missed It

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Yesterday, I found myself enjoying the afternoon sunlight – a welcome fall guest in my living room. Our west facing windows that have been drawn tight to shut out the blistering summer rays were finally flung open. Gladly received sunbeams flooded through the two large windows seeking out every dusty corner and consuming every sly…

Let Hope Rise…

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

When I was young, I suffered from night terrors. I would wake up in the middle of the night and find myself in a hazy place between sleep and consciousness terrified of things that would never happen. I remember waking up one night in my momma’s arms. I was crying hysterically, and she was singing sofly to me.…

For When You Cannot See Past Today…

Friday, September 20th, 2013

I read the end of a book first. I will often search the internet for movie spoilers before paying for my ticket. Oh, and rarely am I surprised by the results of a reality TV game show. I like to know what is coming. I know. I get it. You’re reading this thinking, “Ummm. That’s…

Just a Donkey

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

My husband and I took our kids to the State Fair this weekend. My goodness. I could write a series of posts on that adventure… but this little post only takes us about an hour into our ride there. Our pleasant little trip was underway. The kids munched happily on their snacks, and my husband…

A Lesson on Beauty

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

*Clomp clomp clomp clomp* “Look, mommy! I pretty just like you.” Her tiny size 6 toddler feet were tucked into the toes of my sparkly flats. She had gone to my closet and pulled them all on her own. She was so proud of herself as she came clomping across the kitchen floor. “See! I…

Perspective is Everything

Monday, September 9th, 2013

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2 We were sitting on the front porch enjoying playing with chalk. Normal requests for racecars and butterflies had filled our front porch with vibrant expression. My two small preschoolers were covered…

Raising Greatness – Parenting With Love

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

The pool was closing early for the day. We had arrived not long before, and when the announcement was made… I honestly panicked. If you have ever met a toddler, you are surely aware of their extremely delicate dispositions. Basically, they are always one “no” away from complete meltdown. Toddler mommies spend the majority of…
