Just a little update

We had a great weekend.  We started it off with dinner at another couple’s house.  The Neal’s graciously opened their home to us and fed us some yummy food!  The kids really enjoyed themselves, too.  They always like playing with new toys.  Saturday Josh and I took the kids to THE COFFEE PARK, where the kids played in a separate […]

A good dose of reality

    Ok, so at times I wonder what it would be like to have another baby.  Mack is almost 2 years old, and we are well out of the ‘baby-baby’ phase (a time I seriously didn’t think would ever arrive).  Molly and I were looking at pictures on the computer from newborn times with Mack and even when she […]

Christmas in Albany

We wrapped up our Christmas celebration this past weekend in Albany.  And what fun it was!  We didn’t do much (lots of talking, reading, and eating), which is why it was so nice.  I told Josh that I like the road trips now simply because I have to sit down—and I don’t see any toys that need to be put […]

A New Year

The last day of the year.  Wow.  I, personally, love a new year.  A fresh start.  A time to reflect, change behavior or attitudes or actions (or all of the above) and move on in life to new and exciting adventures.  You know, I always hope for new and exciting adventures in a new year, but the truth is–we don’t really know what the new year has in store for us.  The Lord has orchestrated beautifully my new devotion book and the timing of a New Year.  I started JOHN: The Beloved Disciple a few days ago.  It is by Beth Moore, but it is different than her other studies.  The questions she asked were: “At this season of your life, what do you sense you need most: preparation for a fresh work of God? Repair from a tear? Restoration from a fall?” AND “How could you demonstrate your willingness to follow Him faithfully into whatever He knows is next for you?”    For me,  I feel I need a major re-focus on listening to God daily through His Word and a meditation upon the Scriptures.   Things around here are so very busy.  It isn’t anything crazy like running the roads or filling our calendar with unnecessary stuff.  It IS a husband (who works full-time and is building our house full-time, who also teaches Sunday School every week and all that it entails), a 4 year old Ruby who […]

Is there a rewind button?

I am sitting here eating the last of the pecan (PEE-can) pie and wondering where to begin on telling about our Christmas.  The day of Christmas is just magical, I mean…I just wish we could rewind and do it all over again.  The kids loved waking up to a room full of gifts (who wouldn’t?!).  I loved watching their faces.
