The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

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 […]

Texting a proposal?

I propose that men who desire to ask their future life partner for her hand in marriage refrain from using their own hands to text their proposal. Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t even think you should call them on the phone to make your wishes known. I personally think it needs to be in […]

Oh No…The Big 40!

The summer provides me with more time to blog, as we only do school for half of a day. So, I thought I’d go back and blog about a few things that I missed in the busyness of the end of the school year. Back in March, my sweet husband turned the big 40! We […]

Another birthday…

They say you shouldn’t run from your problems, but face them. Lately, I have been running for my problem (the problem being…I’m out of shape), and I am really feeling better…maybe even younger. I was thrilled to get new running shoes for my b-day. BC and I went to my 20th high school reunion a […]

My Mind is Running With Thoughts on Running!

As I approach my 20th high school reunion (and 38th B-day), I have felt the need to run (fight or flight, huh?) . So for twenty dollars a month (our first time to join a gym—ever), BC and I rundrive over to the gym and get on the treadmill. We only go there together, and […]

I Am a Fan of Chic-fil-A!

What is black and white and red all over? Our embarrassed family walking into Chick-fil-A dressed like cows! Yesterday, we made total cows of ourselves (in more ways than one)! It was National Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-fil-A, and so we dressed the part and had a moo-valous time! We were supposed to dress “head […]

Blown Away at Relay 2009

Highlights from this year’s Relay For Life… I was blown away by the money we raised…$70,000. Is that awesome or what? Even in a tough economic year, we surpassed our goal of $50,000. Also, this year we became a “Five-Star Relay”! Our chair and co-chair did an excellent job. Everyone on the committee did everything […]

I won!

I entered my name for a drawing for a free ticket to a Christian Film Festival in San Antonio, TX—I won! (Now I can’t say I never won anything.) I had wanted to go, but knew I couldn’t go alone. It really did not make sense for me to even enter the contest, but I […]

Happy Anniversary!

Tonight we are having some friends spend the night (like 15 plus 8…23 total). We are so delighted they could stop over, that it does not really matter that it happens to be our anniversary. Everyday is a celebration! At least I am not in the hospital having heart surgery (That was our 13th anniversary!) […]

My Favorite Poem…by a Favorite Person…on a Favorite Day

I know I shouldn’t play favorites, but I am getting ready to unveil the most beautiful poem from my love. This is my favorite poem. Bc gave this to me on our 12 year wedding anniversary–6 years ago. It came during a time when Paige was going through chemo., and it is very special to […]
