Christmas Eyes

“I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep,” Jesus said in John 10:11; (NASB). Sheep follow each other. Wanting to be one is crazy I thought as my son ran around the house singing his Sunday School song at the top of his lungs. The song baaaa-baaa-ed its wanna-be-sheep-desire. Rather than soft wool, a black cape flew from his shoulders. I sighed. I just want to follow Jesus, but I am such...

A Christmas Resolution

Posted by on Dec 22, 2017 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, From the Heart | 0 comments

“Can we sleep in front of the Christmas tree, Mama?” Their twinkling eyes reveal the anticipation in their hearts this Christmas Eve night. They gather blankets and pillows and snuggle down under the glow of the tree. Just before bed, my husband turns off the lights and the house settles into shadowy silence. It was a good season, but how did Christmas Day come so quickly? When I was a child, the month seemed like a year and the...

Boxes, Bows, and Ribbons—OH MY

Posted by on Dec 21, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

I’m so excited to share my favorite new decorating idea with you: GIANT PRESENTS! YAY for fun. YAY for Christmas Decorating! And yay for making home a fun and beautiful place for your family. Choose three different sized boxes—the larger the better. Choose three different patterns of wrapping paper (two should be patterned, and one solid). Choose at least two to three different sized ribbons. Create super-large bows for a touch of drama. You can even embellish your gifts...

A Holy Habit

I’m not a big fan of winter—I don’t recall a time when I ever was. I was told, “If you get involved in a winter sport, then you will love it.” I donned skies, skates, and snowshoes (but not all at once) and headed out into the chill. I’ve lived in towns that gave me access to winter wonders like major ski slopes and the longest skating rink in the world. But, nope, that didn’t work; I still don’t...

Blessing the Messes

Every parent utters this question so frequently that it can be uttered in our sleep: “Have you cleaned your room, yet?” Sadly, the state of affairs in said room is often proof that the child’s answer is going to be “no.” Piles of clothes or toys may be scattered across the carpet, while half-made beds scream for attention. A heavy sigh and rolling eyes can only serve to release a portion of the stress as the parent, through gritted...

I’m one of those. I never taught my boys to believe in Santa. Gasp! In part, I never wanted disappointment to cloud the holiday the way it clouded my sensitive soul when I learned the truth at a young age. But I also longed for the wonder of our Savior’s birth to overshadow all other aspects of the celebration. I don’t judge those who differ. Abnormal challenges skewed my perspective. After my first husband died from a brain stem...

Christmas Trees – Decorating to Praise God

Posted by on Dec 12, 2017 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Family Do-votions | 0 comments

…..  “I am the one who answers your prayers and watches over you. I am like a fir tree that is always green. Your fruit comes from me.” Hoseas 14:8b-c We decorate trees and the tradition dates back hundreds of years to Germany. To continue using a tree we should consider ways that it can glorify God and help us draw closer to Him. God created trees and even compared himself to the evergreen tree. Make tree decorating a...
