I read an article this morning from FOX NEWS that told of a prisoner that faces execution because he believes in Jesus as the one true God. I’ve seen his face and prayed for him. We have posted him on our bulletin board to remind us that we need to pray for him. In fact, I am unsure of exactly […]
Monday was President’s Day, and I was BLESSED to have the day “off.” My sweet friend, Melissa, and her husband, Mr. Bill, offered to keep our kids the whole day!!!

We had a full week of school, which included a fun Valentine’s Day and a field trip for the girls to the Atlanta Ballet’s SNOW WHITE performance. They had a blast!

There’s a Valentine post in my head…and even pictures. Maybe I will get around to posting it this weekend…..
Well, after one week—and as we begin our second week of this schedule and of the kid’s chores–Mack let me know his opinion. It was time for him to go to his room for a “rest time.” They had just finished doing some of their chores. It was not time to eat anything, so I was saying NO to a snack. He fell of the floor and said, “I just wish you’d never thought of this!!!!” “Thought of what, Mack??,” I asked. “Thought of all this stuff to do, all this work!!!! I just…I just WISH YOU WOULD SAY THAT YOU GIVE UP!” Oh my goodness. He wishes I would say that I give up. Lord only knows how many times I have felt that way, but I will not give up. I will endure. I hope. 🙂
I’m tempted to just blab and blab about what I’ve been doing the past few days, but I suppose that I should test it out and then report back with lots more information. I will, however, say that I have been scrutinizing our daily schedule, writing down ideas for keeping Mack occupied (as opposed to just shoo-ing him away from […]
