The Spirit’s stirrings in a young heart.

A couple weeks ago, a little purple plastic gun showed up at our house. I actually recognized it, so when I saw Corban playing with it, I thought it was a boy reunited with his long-lost toy. But when James noticed it during supper that night, he knew for sure it didn’t belong to us. He […]

When the life group retreats.

When the life group retreats.

Well, I started this post exactly two weeks ago. Then I took a break to blink and just opened my eyes today! Actually, I started working on a book I officially wrote in college and forgot all about photos and blogs and funny stories. After reading it with adult eyes, I realized there wasn’t one.single.word […]

Tea and Donuts

Tea and Donuts

We eat donuts almost never. A sad state of affairs, I realized, that absolutely needed rectified. So how did we break the fast? With a Saturday morning family date? With a special reason to celebrate? Nope. This baby mama woke up one morning and said to herself, “Self, it’s been too long. It’s time for donuts.” […]

A Poem for a Friday.

A Poem for a Friday.

Loving cousins Hating distance Belly popping With persistence Fresh hair cut For a birthday party Braiding hair And feeling artsy Girls abound In Corban’s friends So time to veg And feel a man Sibling hugs That are staged by them Loving finding Little gems

Having fun while losing a kid.

Having fun while losing a kid.

There once was a group of girls who loved each other and were committed to each other, babies and allergies and ungraciousness and all. They loved to gather at homes and parks and on this particular day, the library. The kiddos built towers, made their mamas food, read some books, and played/watched computer games. After […]

Debt chain broken.

Debt chain broken.

I cleaned out both our phones and our Nikon last week, organized all our photos on our computer (to someday be placed in a Blurb photo album), and found some long lost gems. Like these! This past winter, James led FPU again at our church. In case we didn’t say it before, FPU changed the […]

A flying good time at the airshow.

A flying good time at the airshow.

Three weeks ago, we were in a parking lot when suddenly Corban cried out, “I see a plane!” Sure enough, there was a billboard advertising the upcoming airshow. We marked it on our calendars and counted it day by day by day by day by glorious is-it-today day. We were at the library a week […]

Had to make it happen.

Had to make it happen.

This bunch has tried to swim, oh, every other week or so. But by evening, it’s been too cold, too rainy, or our schedules have clashed. A couple weeks ago, the afternoon was gorgeous, perfect swimming weather. So we made plans for swimming. And by evening, it was chilly. But I was bound and determined […]

The Lego Tunnel

The Lego Tunnel

My family dropped Jon off at Liberty University last weekend. *sniff sniff* I won’t tell you how many of his diapers I changed, haircuts I botched, or “Get-out-of-bed-NOW”s I screamed. But there he is, off finding his way (which is quite the chore, I understand, at that big school), doing something amazing with that big […]
