My Scripture Notebook

Tracy / January 4, 2015

A new family heirloom in the making….my scripture notebook. Memorizing scripture is a meaningful way to start a new year. I’m recording it in a very special book my mama gifted to me on my 37th birthday. The Lord willing, generations from now, my family will be reading the word we stored in our hearts in my handwriting. May those…

Photo Storage

Tracy / January 3, 2015

Friday Storm

Tracy / August 17, 2010

Friday, a storm passed though that knocked our power off for a few hours. I felt myself beginning to grumble as we lit candles, and looked for a radio. Who wants to be inconvenienced with no air conditioning and no lights?! As the minutes passed, I think God whispered to my heart. I needed a little reminder that these are…

Meredith’s Birthday

A whole first year already…. Meredith’s first baby prints on the birthday tablecloth– She loved feeling the paint between her toes! My Mom made her the sweetest bear: She loves it and has been taking it pretty much everywhere since! Mom also crocheted a doll…with yellow hair. She made Meredith a matching hat and wig!! We laughed and laughed!! The…
