Lately we've been playing in the front yard a lot because the kids are loving the front yard things: bikes, scooters, and swings. And our backyard is pretty small so it makes … Continue reading No. 1: It must look boring.

Stuck {FMF}

We have drifted into warmer weather. hooray! For some reason it feels like this winter was oh so long even though last winter was infinitely worse as far as temperature and actual snowfall. But maybe it's just the collected feeling of too much winter after one long season plus one slightly flighty season (it left … Continue reading Stuck {FMF}

Just for Fun: Collections of Words from Other People

I've been loving these songs: "Joy" by Tori Harper: The chorus is my favorite part. Which is lucky because it repeats a bit.

This unseasonable winter {saving my life right now}

So, apparently, it is already the middle of winter. Which is hard to believe for me right now since it is a Springish 45 degrees outside and raining daintily. Some of the trees are already starting to think about getting leaves. I sure hope they don't regret that. My quince bush is already getting leaves … Continue reading This unseasonable winter {saving my life right now}

Last year somehow the motivation escaped me and I made the goals as the mood struck..in May. and November. but mostly not. I had a reading goal which I surpassed because I overachieve greatly at reading when life is … Continue reading New.

    The Wisdom of God: Letting His Truth and Goodness Direct Your Steps is a compilation of sermons/writings from theologian A.W Tozer.
