New Mercies Needed

I had a strange dream last night: I was somewhere with two little daughters. Chloe was there, and I knew who she was, but my baby I was holding, I could not think of her name. It felt so strange, like it really would if I couldn’t remember what I named my youngest child! When …

Something Beautiful

Hola! Blogging live from a visit to the cardiologist! Good times. But this post won't be about that; I had a neat thought today I wanted to put down here. I am currently reading a book by Amy Carmichael that I was not aware of- Gold Cord. It is lovely. Each chapter reads like a …

Staying The Course

I ran into my pastor's wife at Aldi today, but in situations like that I almost wish I hadn't: there isn't any time to talk, to get into any specifics about what is going on in our lives. Then I thought, maybe my blog friends would like to hear what I would have told her, …

Ups and Downs

Greetings from my Monday! We're still neck deep in our building project, and seeing God's hand in it every day. It looked like it was supposed to rain overnight, which would make things really muddy for trucks, but we ended up only getting a sprinkle. This morning we had gravel brought in to take care …

Building On

We are watching our addition take shape out of the dining room window. It is pretty hot outside, and we don’t really want the kids too close to the giant hole beside our house. So many thoughts and emotions surround this new chapter in our lives already, and it is so different than the house-building …

Telling Mom

Good Saturday everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend. It is currently raining here, but I don’t mind, since I don’t have to be out in it. Luke is riding his bike, out in it…not fun.  This morning I went to visit my mom. I try to go every Saturday, but last week I …

The Best Memory

I just finished reading a beautiful story, called A Lantern In Her Hand. It is one I will buy, and put up on my shelf beside my Ralph books, and read over and over. So touching. It follows the life of a woman who, alongside her husband and others, helped settle Nebraska in the late …

After The Storm

Good day folks! I'm coming to you live from a solar powered battery powered location! We had a massive storm come through last night, and we lost power at about 11:30 pm. When we got up at six, we had no power and no internet. Fortunately, my dad has solar powered batteries, so I was …

Unexpected Day Off

It is great to be presented with a pretty wide open day, after I thought I was going to be busy until ten tonight! I immediately thought of the things I could get done around the house, that have been suffering lately. There is the laundry, the dishes, always. Then there is the basement, which …

Off To The Races

If you guessed, GIVE WHAT CANNOT BE TAKEN, you are correct! Before I knew what it was, I thought it might be ‘LOST’. Equally meaningful, I think.  Abbie is at work on dinner! Love these nights when I don’t have to cook! It already might have been an easy-for-me night, as that is the way …
