let’s be jolly: ladies’ christmas craft night, plus making christmas banners & assembling a charcuterie board

The Christmas fun has begun around here.  Though the decorating is only half done at our place, we’ve been busy with preparations for some church events:  the Christmas parade in town, a fun night out for the ladies, a Christmas concert and gift baskets. Days before our ladies’ evening, I began gathering supplies: card stock,…… Continue reading let’s be jolly: ladies’ christmas craft night, plus making christmas banners & assembling a charcuterie board

simple fall decor & diy rustic pumpkins

This fall found us back on the road for several weeks, which found me rather negligent in terms of this blog. Before the Christmas decorations make their appearance, I thought I should take note of the fleeting fall decor.  It really doesn’t hang around long, does it?  Winter seems to last forever here; our spring…… Continue reading simple fall decor & diy rustic pumpkins

the requisite mother’s day post

That day of celebration for those women who have been given the responsibility of raising a tiny human has come upon us once again. I personally have attempted to do so six times.  Yes, six (you can see them here). More than some. Fewer than others.  Enough, you may think, that I might have some…… Continue reading the requisite mother’s day post

worthy is the lamb

Do you ever really think about the enormity of that day at Golgotha where the King of Glory laid down His life on the cross more than two thousand years ago? Sadly, I often take this day for granted.  I go about my business, doing my own thing, scarcely giving a thought to that great sacrifice.…… Continue reading worthy is the lamb
