We Praise in the Good AND the Bad?

My son, Judson, and I had the opportunity on a beautiful spring day to go to the forest, just the two of us. We played together, we hiked, we took pictures, we talked, we laughed.

The sun was shining, the forest was full of life. It was so simple, yet absolutely amazing – and God’s presence was all over the place – in the green growth on the trees, the sounds of birds, the bees buzzing around the flowers, the trickle of a small stream. I felt pure joy, so blessed – entirely filled with God’s love. Continue reading


My Favorite Place – It’s not the WHERE, but the WHO

We recognize that study of scripture and thoughtful contemplation on how God works in our lives must continue long after our so-called “formative years” – but making the time can be such a challenge!

Finally! A Relaxed Family Night at Home

It had been a busy week (aren’t they all?) and we finally had a free Friday night at home, just the four of us. The weather was supposed to be great; we had no where to go. I was looking forward to it all week!

But we decided my husband should probably mow the yard – the grass was a foot high in the backyard. I decided I’d do something fun and special with the kids. So, I bought some flowers thinking the 3 of us could plant together while my husband mowed the yard.

Sounds lovely, right?
