This is a word that I still ponder. Not that I ponder the meaning; I ponder the solution. Many people wring their hands and say how can a supposedly good and just God let injustice run rampant in the world? I don't know. I usually come back to the idea that humans have free will, … Continue reading Injustice
March 7 | Confession
There are many definitions for "confession," but the most prevailing one, at least in my mind, is that of telling God about my sins with a repentant spirit. It's the part of prayer that I don't exactly rush to get to, and sometimes I feel shame knowing what I have to confess. However, I think … Continue reading March 7 | Confession
March 4 | Restored
I have no better explanation of "restored" than the result of work that Jesus did on the cross: "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (II Cor. 5:21 NASB). There is nothing on Earth that compares to this single … Continue reading March 4 | Restored
A challenge for every day of the week
I have to say... I quite content right now as a stay-at-home wife/nanny/tutor/seamstress/entrepreneur????/short-term missionary/volunteer "Sunday school" teacher/dog trainer... I think some of the best jobs are ones whose titles you really can't pinpoint to a couple words. Even with Husband Man being gone for almost three weeks (he comes home in two days, wheeeee!!) I've … Continue reading A challenge for every day of the week

Being a servant
I look at my recent posts and I'm surprised, and not surprised, that I've posted about once a week. What is that?! Usually I have a lot more to say. But as it stands, I've been learning a big lesson on how to be a servant. I can thank my current job for that. I … Continue reading Being a servant
Friendships drenched in mercy.
I am still mulling over grace and mercy and how God lavishes it upon us. I've also been reading Refine Us whenever they post blogs, and I am just enthralled by the possibilities of grace and mercy in my marriage.Really, I'm excited about it in relationships in general.I tend to love the body of Christ … Continue reading Friendships drenched in mercy.
I’m loving this place.
And so is he... Luthor was quite lethargic for the first week we were in the house. Rightfully so, since it doesn't get below 80-85° during the day with the swamp cooler. A couple days ago, he became much more active. Our House. Friday we finally received our household goods. I was, however, very disappointed that … Continue reading I’m loving this place.
Eight years ago…
...we started dating. It was at the park, after a walk around the lagoon, something we did all the time. I had to ask you, "So, am I officially taken then?" and you told me yes. We said that if our relationship at any time was not headed for marriage, then we needed to break … Continue reading Eight years ago…
>My poor husband, seriously. I've been going crazy making lists and just being, well, for lack of better terms, OCD, about moving. Tomorrow the movers come and we are more than prepared. Everything's off the walls, we have our clothes packed, and most of my list is crossed off (you know that means it's a good … Continue reading >Decompressing… ahhhh.
