A slice of life.

We went to Estonia for two weeks in July.  Then we came home and it took about a week to feel normal in our time zone again, another week to get the kids and ourselves back into a regular routine and before we knew it we were headed to Saskatchewan to Clearview Christian Camp for […]

Answered Prayers.

Remember the feeble little prayer I sent up today when I was feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders? It was about all I could muster. “Please, God, help me.” Answers to such a little prayer would be overlooked by me on most days, but today I was paying attention: – I was […]

One Thousand Gifts Book Club

I have been excited to get the mail for over a week now. There is a spring in my step as I walk toward the mailbox. I am waiting in hopeful anticipation for a package. I have been reading Ann’s blog, A Holy Experience, since the autumn and have been wanting her book, One Thousand […]

Stray.

The other day I was sitting on my couch in the early evening, feeding Ezra and staring out the window.  I happened to see a dog run across my lawn, across my neighbour’s lawn, across the street (almost getting hit by a car), and then crapping on a lawn across the street before running out […]

Recovery

In a lot of  situations I am an all-or-nothing person: – hitting the gym for 2 hours a day, every day, or not at all – starting a huge sewing project and needing to finish it in one day instead of breaking it up to work on it over time – no junk food at […]

New Year’s Resolution – A month late.

(not my photo) I totally meant to write a lot more in January.  I even wrote a little list of all the blogs I was going to write.  Maybe they will happen in February?  I can’t believe it is February already.  February is the month that I have a baby.  It has always seemed very […]

#4 – Patience (Fruit of the Spirit)

The last post in my Fruit of the Spirit series was April 28.  The entire idea behind the delay in posts was to test your patience (coughcough).  Some of you are very patient, while others… not so much. I have the feeling that this post will mostly be a confession, rather than an expression of […]

#3. Peace (Fruit of the Spirit)

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Do you know what fruit of the Spirit even means?  I just really gave it some thought.  I thought about Jesus’ parable of the sower whose seeds fall on good ground and grow, and some of his other seeds fall […]
