Kelly, I've never tried them. When my MIL taught me how to make them, she told me they wouldn't work well...so I never paid to find out :). I've always used ONLY those rubber ones :).

Ninety-nine percent of the time, I agree: It is better to give than to receive. The one time of year I would disagree is at Christmas. Yes, Christmas. Now before you think I'm the Most Awful Person in the World, let me clarify: I enjoy receiving Christmas cards a thousand... Continue reading

Once your children start leaving for college, the significance of holidays is magnified: they're some of the few times you can count on having everyone around your table. For me, now with two in college, I'm counting down the days for their Thanksgiving break with the same rabid anticipation I... Continue reading

One of my most popular posts of all time is my graduation gift ideas post; it's a carefully curated list enthusiastically approved and eagerly endorsed by my children and their friends. My niece said, "It's a good list, Aunt Robin--I can't think of anything to add." She's the one who... Continue reading

Lib, As I've said, this is one that's been simmering for years. When it was finally time to write it, I did so quickly. Funny, because I've started it before and couldn't move it forward. I was too negative. FINALLY, this story found a way to be told POSITIVELY. At least I hope that's how it's viewed. :)

He asked me two months ago if I minded if he went; it would mean we wouldn't spend our anniversary together. It didn't matter to me in the least; I'm married to him not a day, and I knew we'd celebrate sometime close enough for it to count. For him... Continue reading

I guess I've been living under a rock, but I've totally missed the news that an epic production of the story of Noah and the Ark was being filmed, directed by Darren Aronofsky and starrring Hollywood A-listers Russell Crowe, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson. The trailer looks... Continue reading

For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7b i. I remember the night my father died. I was sitting alone in our playroom, mindlessly watching tv while the rest of my house was asleep.... Continue reading

Oh, dear. I haz no plants right now! I'm living in an apartment temporarily, and have NOTHING to write about :(. And I think it's brilliant planting your Christmas cactus in a breakable pot; THAT would be FUN when it's time (says the girl who loves to break glass bottles when I go to the recyling center :) ). THANK YOU for tagging me...this brings back memories of such wonderful people :).
Oh, dear. So, yeah. I'm dyin' just a little. OF ALL THE SPEAKERS TO READ THIS, IT HAD TO BE YOU!! But...but...it also felt important to admit that out loud. How our unspoken prejudices can hurt us. How pride seeps in. How stupid we can be for the most ridiculous of reasons. Bianca, your words linger. I don't think it's because they're YOU'RE words, but a message my heart and soul needed to hear. Thank you for your obedience to serve, for your zeal for Christ, for your grace to people like me. And to those not like me. I'm especially fond of you. xo

Betsy, Your comment is precious to me; thank you for taking time to share your response. It delights me to know all these years of living this road will speak to others; not for my glory but for Christ's sake. :)
