there is a season

Seems I’ve been MIA the last few weeks.  We have had a steady stream of visitors this summer…and more to come in the weeks ahead.  We’ve also made a trip to Ontario this month and one the previous month.  We don’t usually travel in the summer, as that’s our busy time, but we actually made…… Continue reading there is a season

tell him…he knows anyway

Sometimes praying is fearsome. Huh?  “Isn’t prayer supposed to be comforting…you know ease our burdens?” you may ask. Well that is most often the case.  After all, we know that God is good.  He knows our struggles and our needs.  We are told to “cast our cares on Him for He cares for us.”(1 Peter…… Continue reading tell him…he knows anyway

summer + family = love

“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything…… Continue reading summer + family = love

Since I’ve been enjoying time with wonderful friends and family, and my amazing kids and grandlittles in particular, I thought I’d share some of the projects I’ve actually completed that I hope will remind my sweet baby boys how much their Gramma loves them.…… Continue reading keepsakes

life with littles

We’ve been enjoying life with littles again as we’ve been babysitting our Northern boy’s twins.  Living far away means we seldom see them, but it also means that when we do, it’s for a few days at a time.  I am very thankful for FaceTime, though, and often wonder how missionaries and others moved from home to…… Continue reading life with littles

the journey’s worth it

Nothing compares to the feeling of knowing something wonderful is ahead of you. Like the excitement of Christmas Eve, when you anticipate the magic of the morning after just “one more sleep.” This is where I’m at…counting down the hours…and there are many of them. Twenty driving hours to be exact. Then tack on two to three…… Continue reading the journey’s worth it

home is where you are

This is a re-write, as the first post went awol.  Don’t ask me how this non-techie momma lost an entire original post. I’m at a total loss. Anyway…I’ll try my best to recall my thoughts…We recently passed the one-year marker of our move to the east coast. This has added a bit of drama to the…… Continue reading home is where you are
