Consequences of Disobedience

Well, nothing like a bloody toddler to start your Sunday worship... We got to church this morning (praise God they opened it! Finally...) And I had all the kids go potty before service. My oldest went on his own, but my daughter wanted my help so she didn't soil her pretty dress... Girls... So I … Continue reading Consequences of Disobedience

Reverencing My Husband

The concept of reverencing my husband is relatively new to me. Relatively. And I mean not intellectually new, but practically new, as in I haven't actively and intentionally pursued it before. But in reading and studying scripture and walking through a book with my mentor, I've come to the point of implementing what I've been … Continue reading Reverencing My Husband

Equipping Children with the Word

One of the most prominent verses of Scripture throughout my adult life has been Psalm 127. The focus of that partucular passage is of course the sovereignty of God's will, the vanity of man's efforts apart from God, and the blessing which results from walking in accordance with God's will. Different verses of that passage … Continue reading Equipping Children with the Word

Face to Face

Face to face with Christ, my Savior, Face to face—what will it be, When with rapture I behold Him, Jesus Christ who died for me? Face to face I shall behold Him, Far beyond the starry sky; Face to face in all His glory, I shall see Him by and by! 2 Only faintly now, … Continue reading Face to Face

Homestead Update

I've heard a few people now mention that soreness that comes with getting back into the busy spring season of homesteading. I'm there! Nothing like weeding and cleaning up gardens to really stiffen those winter-relaxed muscles. We took the much needed time to clean up the raspberry bushes. We planted about 8 plants 3 years … Continue reading Homestead Update

Thank You, Father

Thank you, Father for the pain that penetrates my heart, for it reminds me of Your suff'ring, of the cross, planned from the start. Before the earth was formed, You knew all from beginning to the endand cast me not from Your presence, but instead called me a friend. In spite of my unrighteousness, You … Continue reading Thank You, Father

Practicing and Perfecting Skills

You know what changes for homeschooling, homesteaders in the midst of social distancing ordinances? Not a whole lot, actually. In fact, it has been pretty difficult to frame this whole virus thing with rationality because of all the highly publicised "toilet paper crisis alerts." I'm praying for those affected by sickness and hardship (as I … Continue reading Practicing and Perfecting Skills

Cry Out to Abba

At church this evening, my middle daughter spiraled a little after service. She had made some sort of Valentine's craft and was covered in red glitter. She wanted to wash her hands, so i walked her to the bathroom and turned on the light for her. She's fairly capable, so I walked down the hall … Continue reading Cry Out to Abba

Homestead Update

Well, I persuaded my husband to light the first fire of the year on Friday evening. It was wonderful. Prior to that I had my minis help me make Swedish meatballs for dinner. Those are the moments I treasure- peacefully functioning and just living life together. I need more of those moments. Sunday I tried … Continue reading Homestead Update

Am I Dead?

I woke up this morning, energetic, even before coffee. The "fall back" is always a special time of rejuvination for me- it's like time travel- I get to redeem an entire hour that was lost to me in the spring. Anyway, there was a vigor in me as I prepared for church this morning. Aside … Continue reading Am I Dead?
