What??!! Apparently you missed the point...when I posted about the POP site, it was in reference to another post about a family who needed prayer. POP is shut down now anyway...for once, that site was doing something positive, and it was the link back to that particular family. Oh, and for Bible verses....hold on just a second, I think I need to remove this huge plank. There, thanks for that. Specks and planks...

It's the time of year when I assess what we've been doing, what works, what doesn't, and what I should change in order to accomplish what we need to. Most people do this in January, I think.... For me, Spring... Continue reading

The urge to blog or even look at a computer, that is. Reality:: the never-ending happenings around us currently have me fully captivated. Captivated so, that I am feeling a bit stingy with my sharing. :) So here's the bare-bones... Continue reading

Busyness...isn't that what it's called? The rush of day-to-day...the things we MUST do, that left undone, make us feel so completely unsuccessful, lazy, irresponsible, flaky, whatever that negative word that comes to mind is.... Funny how in this fast-paced world... Continue reading

Oh thank you for the inspiration!! I need to make something like this for my little brother, stationed fourteen hours away from us, at Dover AFB. He is incredibly homesick..... I can relate to the love for your little sister...I am the oldest of four, myself. I had the pleasure of going out with my little sisters (13 & 16) for Valentine's, Saturday night. A movie and "coffee". Such fun! I try to soak up as much time with them as possible, because I know one day they won't be so close... :) This is such a sweet gift! I know it will mean a lot to your little sister... :D

(I should have said "comfy piece of clothing") Trip reminded me that the first comfy thing I finished was a blanket for him, when I was just learning to crochet. (shortly after my 19th birthday) :) What a sweet boy he is. Teaching myself to crochet was my birthday present that year.
