The Well Trained Mind

Spring is in the air….it doesn’t seem like there will be too many more freezing days. I’m so excited, my peach trees are blooming. Maybe we’ll manage some peaches this year. If so, I’ve already got plans to ask my friend, Christy, to share her peach cobbler recipe. She was so sweet to share some that she had made with…

They Are HIS Gift!

Tuesday morning! Well, it’s actually afternoon here. It’s been a nice morning. I’m happy to say that we have a registered domain so it should be a little easier to find us on the web now. I’m thankful today that my Mom’s Dr. appointment went well. She has another today…please pray health for her. I’m also thankful for all that…

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle

Today has been a pretty good day. The weather is in the mid 60’s, perfect for playing outside! My older children and I lingered for a while out on the deck waiting on a friend to arrive and pick them up for an afternoon play date…it’s beautiful. My prayer requests today are for our cub scout group. We’re trying to…

I love my family. I’m so thankful for the little smiles that come and pile into my bed in the morning just to get a quick hug and kiss! This morning I was looking at my baby daughter, Emma, thinking how blessed I am to have her….just like the rest….I’m so thankful to God that He let me borrow her,…

I actually entered this into the computer over the weekend, but am just getting around to uploading it today…. I don’t normally post on the weekends but tonight I found this poem that I had saved from many years ago and in light of a news story that I heard on ABC this week called “Mommy Wars” it was a…

In His Hand

This morning I am waking up feeling much better than yesterday but I’m still tired and my head still isn’t feeling quite right! I would never wish a migraine on anyone. The pain alone is enough to send you straight to bed for a day but add to that blurred vision and nausea and it’s really awful. I long for…

Tracy / February 24, 2006

I‘m so tired again this morning! I’m assuming that I’ll be in bed long before 2 a.m. tonight…we’ve spent this week staying up late to get our ministries off the ground. I know that this isn’t good for my mind or body, but my hubby and I just get so excited over the thought of being able to help even…

Me? A Titus 2 Woman?

Tracy / February 20, 2006

What a wonderful day! We have a brand new 4 year old in our home. My three year old’s (well, four year old’s) birthday is today. We’ve had fun visiting with his Grandmother and celebrating his special day. He is such a sweet little boy! I think of all my children, he is by far the most tender hearted. It’s…
