A *Sweet* Baptism Gift

August 25, 2014

Yesterday by bestest friend in Tennessee was baptized! Yayyyyy! Welcome her to the family! I was so sad because we had to miss her lake side baptism due to my daughter having another wretched headache. Thankfully Thieves rescued her from the pain but not as fast as we had hoped. The headache came too close to when we’d have to leave for the lake. Boooooo.

Thankfully she was feeling right as rain not too long later. We still wanted to celebrate our sweet sister and her public announcement of her new life in Christ. So I did what every good friend would do. I hopped on Pinterest. After discovering this awesomely clever idea we popped the kids in Bessie, our large family van, and headed out shopping! We had candy to buy!

Outside the Box

August 13, 2014

I have found one thing that has helped immensely with my anxiety. Every morning the children and I bustle around the house. Making sure everyone is dressed and fed. We grab our Abeka Bible cards and head for Bessie, our massive van.

And we leave our little box.

We make sure to reach our destination before anybody else. And it is in the wee early hours of the morning that we get the public playground all to ourselves.

I even received a gift card from my incredibly thoughtful mother in law when she knew I was having a rough time. My soul smiled wide when I opened that card.

Can I tell you about my new, God sent, friend Reuben?




Honestly, I may never see him again earthside. We went out to minister at the Orlando Women’s Center when Reuben came by. He went up to John Barros and they began talking like old chums. Mind you, I’m standing to the side wondering who this is. Can I trust him? Did he bring his girlfriend here? Who is this man that is now having his photo taken with John?? Dag gone this place is confusing. Continue Reading…

Our Unusual Vacation

March 12, 2014

Last month we took a very random trip down to Florida. And while down there we did the obvious – we went to Disney! We were able to go because of my husbands family and their military discounts. We played at Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Except for the day it down poured. That I could have done without. But overall we had a fun time going on rides and just walking around.
