Things My Son Says

I love my son. He’s just a special guy, extremely intelligent, and loves God with all his heart. In my opinion, he and my husband are two of the smartest guys I have ever known. Josh is involved in a theology discussion board. He freely shares his beliefs, quite often the only person with his particular beliefs. Well, except me and maybe one other person. But he is faithful to his understanding of God’s Word. Here are just a few comments he has made: “…don’t become bitter. Somedays you find the edge of bitter and peek over. Just don’t fall.”… Continue reading

wow!

i can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post. and life has certainly not been standing still during that time. do you believe that it will be Christmas in TWO weeks? i have to admit, i sure wish life would slow down just a tad. but, with church activities, full-time work, family responsibilities, etc., there doesn’t appear to be a slowing down point in the near future. it’s all a part of the construction, you know? every experience brings new teaching, new focus, a better understanding of who God is and how He is working in my life….

Of course, this means that… Continue reading

New Construction Under Way

We never stop growing, you know? No matter what our age or life experience, God always has new ‘stuff’ for us; sometimes it’s really fun stuff, sometimes it’s not so fun. I wouldn’t classify my last few weeks as fun, by any stretch. Beginning in June, when I found out that the company I work for had been sold, along with its employees, to minor surgery, to my daughter moving out of our home and taking our three grandsons with her, it’s just been … challenging. Over a weekend I went from being an office manager and running an office… Continue reading

Fanny Packs

Recently my dear hubby and i attended the Meineke Car Care Bowl game in Charlotte, NC. In their stadium brochure, they list what items are acceptable and not acceptable to bring into the stadium. Sure I was within the guidelines of what was acceptable, I willingly opened up my purse for the lady to scan. Then she said to me, “Ma’am, please remove your fanny pack and place it on the table so that I can inspect it.” I looked at her blankly for a second before replying, “I’m not wearing a fanny pack.” She reached over, pulled open my… Continue reading
