The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

Graduation…Hats off to Paige!

    Paige graduated from high school last weekend. Praise the LORD for allowing us to mark her special day. She graduated with three other seniors from the youth choir they were all a part of, and we had the graduation at the church where our choir practiced and performed. They wore cap and gowns […]

Mother/Son Date Knight

I know y’all know that I am a big fan of Chick-fil-A. They really have some great inventions…like:   the tastiest chicken sandwich the yummiest waffle fries the best fudge-nut brownie the encouraging family nights and bonding activities (Believe me, dressing up like a cow really makes a memory!) This past Tuesday, I went to […]

The Braces Are Off…The Teeth Are Out…

Because we were unsuccessful at getting her to dislike her two favorite fingers, we assumed Michelle would need braces someday. That day came, and many days (22 months) she wore braces, and had them removed on January 31. Just when we thought we had the dental drill down and done,  she recently got the real […]

The LORD Provides Above And Beyond…

Almost three weeks ago, BC’s truck died. Well, temporarily died. He spent some time trying to replace the alternator, but it was very difficult getting to it because of the way the truck was situated. I have always appreciated how BC tries to fix things on our cars, I mean, vehicles…for some reason I tend […]

Broken Ice Maker Produces A New Fence!

Two years ago, we bought a nice, new fridge. Well, my sweet parents gifted us with half and we paid the other half. This was a huge blessing, as our old fridge was 15 years old and slowly jogging along on the verge of a collapse (another appliance on borrowed time scenario). The new fridge […]

Remembering Our Boys’ Spiritual Birthdays And Their Baptisms

Benjamin’s special day of salvation… Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. […]

Free Cookies!

Posted under How God Provides, We Like Food! - Sep 29th, 11 - 1 Comment

My dad always calls cookies: “cook-cooks”. He is just cute like that! So, this month, you can trade your “book-books” for “cook-cooks”! The Great American Cookie Company is having a “Reading is Sweet” book drive during the month of October. If you donate a new or gently used book, you will receive a free chocolate […]

It’s A Twin Thing…

My twin sister is the best.We have shared many wonderful times together over these past “few” okay, forty, years. We spoke the same language, shared similar thoughts, and just had a lot of fun together. Sure, we fought at times, but mostly we laughed…and sometimes it wasn’t at the most appropriate times (like during a […]

Moms…And theTools of the Trade

While driving to church meeting the other day, one of the lenses on Faith’s glasses fell out. The screw was still in the side, but unfortunately, I did not have my “handy dandy” small screwdriver. While I was looking for something else that might work (like duct tape), Faith suggested that I use my fingernail […]

Cow Day Fun!

Cow day was even bigger this year. As a self-appointed “cow”ordinator, I helped to corral all the herds at one location to feed. There were six families that participated. We helped to outfit some of the families at my house before the event. There was nail-painting, cow hat-making, and duct-taping also going on, and 29 […]
