{ring in the year 2013}

It seems almost unbelievable to me that I’m sitting here writing ANOTHER New Year’s Eve post!  I feel like this year has gone by so quickly, I must have surely slept through some days.  As a child, I never understood why adults always lamented over the fact that “time flies by”.  Back then, I WISHED […]

i’m still here….sort of

I am SO glad that I don’t feel pressured to be a “must write something every day” blogger. Because I would be feeling a little bad about my absence from my site….if I was the type to feel bad about things like that.         (Btw….I originally typed this sentence to read, “if I were the […]

{why Christmas will be different this time around}

I’m not really sure what prompted this idea for me. But back a few months ago while I was sitting in my kiddos’ room trying to sort through a gargantuan mess to find my son’s missing shoe (again), I remember thinking, “Man, my kids have too much stuff”. And yet….it seems that they are never […]

{ let us be thankful }

When I sit down to think about Thanksgiving and all that the day means to me, I get a little overwhelmed.  And I think that’s a good thing.  It means that I have a lot to be thankful for.  So I thought I would put together a list of 25 things I’m thankful for. I’m […]

a look ahead :: november 11, 2012

I’ve never considered myself a very “crafty” kind of girl.  But lately I’ve been having this really strange urge to make something…..or paint something……or at the very least, break into my kids’ stash of coloring books. Is that strange?? Well, I suppose when you are an avid pinner (such as myself) you’re bound to end […]

to blog or not to blog {the end of the 31 day challenge}

When I started this 31 day challenge, I really had no idea what to expect.  I am a new blogger and had entertained the thought of making it part of my daily routine.  I am not, by nature, a very creative person and this blog is one of the very few ways that I express […]

patience is a virtue {day eighteen}

 The Lord speaks in Galatians 5:22 of several fruits of the spirit.  We’ve discussed a few of them so far.  But the fruit that we are talking of today is the one that I struggle with exhibiting more than any of the others. I’m a go go go kind of girl.  I like things to be […]

showing love {day thirteen}

If you were to flip open your bible to Galatians 5:22-23 you would read a passage that might be very familiar to you, or might be brand new.  This passage is most commonly known as the fruits of the spirit.  It is a list of character traits that will portray themselves in the heart and […]

our furry family members {day nine}

Today’s post might seem a little silly to some.  But it’s an area where I feel that I need to be more intentional, so that makes it important to me.  Strangely enough, I had this post scheduled for a later date, but last night’s events prompted me to go ahead with this one. Almost 2 […]

being a homemaker {day four}

Lately it is SO easy for me to get wrapped up in “perfect”.  I have to be the perfect mom, the perfect wife, the perfect homemaker.  I don’t know about anyone else, but “perfect” is hard!!! Today I’m looking at ways that I can be more intentional as a homemaker.  Notice that I did not […]
