Happy Birthday J~man!

Number 1 son is 8 years old today; what a great job it is to be his mom.


I always wanted a boy with blue eyes and blonde curls.  We chose his name when we were engaged, but had to wait ten years - and four sisters - to finally welcome him into our family.  He was worth the wait! He was our first homebirth and our first Texas baby as well as being our first boy. He is hardworking, generous, thoughtful, and kind.  He became a Christian this year, and is now discipling his younger brother.


My son, if you receive my words,
      And treasure my commands within you, 
So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
      And apply your heart to understanding; 
Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
      And lift up your voice for understanding, 
If you seek her as silver,
      And search for her as for hidden treasures; 
Then you will understand the fear of the LORD,
      And find the knowledge of God. 
For the LORD gives wisdom;
      From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; 
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
      He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; 
He guards the paths of justice,
      And preserves the way of His saints. 
Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
      Equity and every good path.

~Proverbs 2:1-9

Thankful Thursday (Happy Birthday, Lulapalooza!)

I thank You, dear God, for the sweet boy You entrusted to me six years ago today.

I thank You for his belly laugh, his goofy sense of humor, and his hugs.

I thank You for the honour and joy of being his mama. 

I pray that he will continue to grow in wisdom and stature

and in favour with You and with man.


Happy Birthday, Lulapalooza!

Thankful Thursday

Thank you, God,

for cold, crisp autumn mornings,

a friend to walk and talk with,

and a hot cup of tea.

Back Online

I have missed reading and writing here in this little corner of cyberspace.

It feels nice to be back.  I will update later.


Have a blessed week!
