Today, I looked at my desk. It looked back…mocking me. I decided I wasn’t going to let my desk ‘dis’ me like that. And I had a re-visitation of starry host singing hallelujah and radiant glory shining down upon me (or How I Found the Possible Holy Grail of Paper Organization). And behold, a revelation on how to decide what to title the six sections in my (possible) Holy Grail of… Continue Reading
A Beautiful Dwelling Place – The Heart and Home Connection
I have to confess that I dropped the ball last week with this series. Life just happened, and I didn’t get my weekly journal entry posted – because I didn’t do the devotional. Honestly, I can’t even remember what happened, it just didn’t get done. This whole Being More Disciplined thing isn’t easy sometimes. It goes against my “natural tendencies,” it seems. What’s more, I intended to write a series… Continue Reading

Not getting up early enough before… Continue Reading

Well, I’ve become a grandma, a mother-in-law, drastically downsized, and celebrated my youngest stepson’s graduation. All within four months. Doesn’t seem like that much to look at what I just typed… Continue Reading
Another New Year, What’s New?
It’s hard to believe yet another year has flown by! My baby will be FIVE next month, my firstborn will be THIRTEEN…my head is spinning. There’s been many changes in the last year or so, mostly in the spiritual and emotional areas for me. Good ones, thankfully! As God continues to bring healing and restoration in my “inner man”, my housekeeping improves. I realized this week that it actually bothers… Continue Reading
