I’ve Been Praying

Posted by on Mar 27, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Giggles and Grace | 0 comments

My kids get super excited when we have any snow in the forecast. Okay, let me be honest. I get just as excited as them. Living a little north of Atlanta, we don’t see much of the white stuff. So when we do get snow, it’s a big deal. We rush out to the store to buy all the essentials – bread, milk, coffee, creamer, chocolate, and toilet paper. A few weeks back, we did get a nice dusting...

Beauty and Thorns

I have seen beautiful stained glass windows many times, but nothing prepared me for this. The walls of this chapel were more glass than stone, with tall, narrow panels rising high from floor to ceiling, depicting Bible stories in a riot of brilliant images. This sanctuary has been described as “a miracle of light” and a “weightless dream of pure color.” One person said it was “like standing in a crystal.” The chapel is called Sainte-Chapelle, and you can...

Learning the Art of Not Doing It All

Posted by on Mar 22, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

My morning begins around 5:30 AM with either a blurry-eyed child in my face or a blaring alarm clock. I jump out of bed (or feebly climb depending on how old my body is feeling that day) and hit the ground running. Not usually literally running, but most certainly at a fast pace with few breaks. I’m not complaining, and I’m sure you don’t very often either. It’s just the reality of our lives as parents, working or stay-at-home,...

Florals for 2018

Posted by on Mar 20, 2018 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, Making Your House a Home | 0 comments

In the midst of winter in the South I find myself dreaming of Spring. I know, it’s the South—how bad can it be? Pretty rough for me because the gray skies and chilly temps keep me hidden indoors and under blankets most days of our winter. After spending the majority of my life in Florida, the winter’s cold can drag on and wear me down. I find I miss the sunshine, the green grass and the flowers blooming all...

When Pretty Does More Than It Ought

Posted by on Mar 19, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Inspiration for the Journey | 2 comments

“I’m so pretty!” my four-year-old daughter squealed. She patted the new pink ruffled skirt with pure joy and then twirled in front of a mirror. Blonde hair bounced golden curls, blue eyes sparkled, and rosy cheeks blushed. She turned expectantly for my approval. With every fiber of my being I agreed. She filled every syllable of a-dor-a-ble and I laughed with pleasure. Children love compliments. In fact, they are the first to give them…to themselves. My parents were careful...

Grandma’s Bible

Posted by on Mar 12, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

Each Wednesday night I have the honor of helping young girls at my local church memorize Scripture. One young lady who struggles to read has become my best friend. She’ll often curl up beside me to work on a new verse. But, in recent weeks she has been using a King James version for memorization, and it’s not gone so well. The bigger words and older language structures were proving difficult for her limited skills. When I suggested that...

Freed from Being a Child Abuser

Posted by on Mar 9, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

I was at the end of my rope.  My anger toward my two-year-old daughter, Darcy, was getting worse. “Oh, God,” I prayed again and again, “deliver me from this anger right now! I’m afraid I’m going to kill Darcy in one of my rages.” But each prayer seemed like it bounced off the ceiling because nothing ever changed. Whenever I tried to figure out what caused my anger, I concluded, “It’s Larry’s fault!” My husband, Larry, worked as a...
