it’s all in my head: advent calendars

I seem to be the sort that gets caught up on a tangent. My sister-in-law noticed when I began pinning millions (okay…a bit of an exaggeration) of short hair styles on Pinterest. She texted me with a, “Are you cutting your hair?!?” to which I responded, “I’m thinking about it. What are your thoughts?” Naturally…… Continue reading it’s all in my head: advent calendars

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

o holy night

We’ve been enjoying days filled with the sounds of Christmas (see here and here, too). There are just so many wonderful songs to get you in the Christmas spirit. I love the contemporary renditions of old and new favourites by the Gardiner Sisters, Pentatonix, Michael Bublé, the jazzy tones of David Ian and, of course,…… Continue reading o holy night

fa la la la la-ing & deck the halls-ing ~ part one

I just love everything about the Christmas season:  the music, the movies, the decorating, the goodies, the parties, but most of all the general spirit of good will and of course the reason behind it all, the birth of the Saviour–Emmanuel, God with us. I don’t want this to be a stressful time (although I…… Continue reading fa la la la la-ing & deck the halls-ing ~ part one

let’s be jolly ~ ladies’ christmas craft night

Our church has a wonderful group of women who enjoy spending time together.  We always have a fun and encouraging time together, whether for Bible study, outreach planning and preparation, a party or a meal.  We were recently given a beautiful compliment.  A visitor to our church said that if she were to describe our…… Continue reading let’s be jolly ~ ladies’ christmas craft night
