True Treasure

True Treasure

We have accumulated a lot of “stuff” during our 32 year marriage. In fact we have a garage full of “stuff”. We are currently in the process of converting some of the garage space into office space and during the process we have had to clean out a lot of our “stuff”. We had to make decisions as to what to keep, give away or throw away. Some of those items were old and worn out. Some things my children…

Counting My Blessings

Counting My Blessings

  A few days ago my youngest child turned 20. I have mixed feeling about this mark of time. It seems like just yesterday he was a baby. I remember purposing to enjoy every minute of his childhood. Yet somehow the time seemed to go by so fast. He is now a man and is moving on into the future with enthusiasm as he sees what the Lord has in store for him. I must admit for the past year…

My children knew that when their chores and schoolwork were done, the day belonged…

Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned

2016  is a year I will not soon forget. This year so many lessons were learned. Many were not very pleasant at the time, but through it all I experienced emotional, spiritual and physical growth that I am so very grateful for. Lesson 1 ~ Good things sometimes come to an end. ~ This year, our homeschooling journey came to an end. For the past 20 years that has been the focus of my days. My “new normal” is still…

A New Season

A New Season

Each year we experience four different seasons. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. With each season comes new experience. As I think of my own life, I realize I have gone through a few seasons. Spring ~ I was so young and enthusiastic. Life was ahead of me. I became a believer in Christ at the age of 18. A new beginning. I became a bride at the age of 21. Our life together was in the future and we were…
