And God Said, “Ta-da!”

When my granddaughter was little, she loved wearing princess dresses. Right from the start, she was introduced to princess-dom because her room and crib were all arrayed in princess décor. Even at our home, we had a frilly, girly room with all kinds of reminders of how special she was to us. After all, she…

Go With the Flow

Go With the Flow The notion of being like a bottle that just floats aimlessly with the water’s current can have both a negative and positive connotation.

Forgive Them Anyway

I brought Payton and Alexia (my daughter’s two) with me to Austin and yesterday Larry and Staci drove down after having just returned from a missions trip to Mexico the night before. Our family is BIG on birthdays, and while it may…

Keep Smiling!

Yesterday’s visit to the dentist with my two youngest grandsons, inspired this post today. I saw that sign on the wall, and of course it called for a photo opt with my two boys. The smiles on these two boys remind me of the joys of a smile and the importance of a simple smile:…

Got WISDOM?

I’m reading the Bible through this year, but more than just reading, I’m pondering the words I read. This month I’m in the Book of Proverbs I’ve noticed that the central theme is found in Chapter 4:7 “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom; yes, with all your getting, get understanding.” In yesterday’s reading,…
