Money Moments

This post has nothing to do with money actually. Have you heard the phrase, “That’s money!” My husband uses this phrase a lot now for some reason. It pretty much can be used interchangeably to mean, “That’s awesome” or “That’s priceless.” Two nights ago I sent my oldest son downstairs after he had gotten ready […]

Hmmm… Interesting…

This is what I would classify as interesting. The Modesty Survey While I believe in modesty in dress and I believe that we ought to be thinking about how our dress will affect the men around us when we choose our clothing, I also think that people can focus a little too much attention on […]

Loss

What can we gain from hearing about the loss of other peoples’ loved ones or from other peoples’ sufferings? And when we each have to face our own losses, struggles and hardships, how we will learn and grow from those as God sees fit even if that eventual growth comes through despair? What wisdom can […]

Prayer thoughts

A fellow blogger was rolling some important questions around regarding prayer. Here are some of them: So when do we quit praying for what we want? Is there a point when we should realize that what we are praying for is not going to happen after many years? Or do we keep praying for it […]

Great quote.

I have to thank my life long best friend for posting this on her blog. What an incredible quote. I had to perpetuate it here on my blog. Thanks April.

Hymn for the day

Okay, so I am just totally nabbing this from someone who really knows good lyrics when he sees them! I was just visiting over at Kevin Twit’s blog and he had posted this. The lyrics are so sweet I, likewise, had to share them: “At the end of the Saturday session where Paige Brown spoke, […]

Meaningless?

I have been thinking on Question 1 of the Westminster Larger Catechism this evening. Q. 1. What is the chief and highest end of man? A. Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever. I have been summarily told by an atheist that Christianity provides no more meaning […]

Theology Mom

Okay, so back in March I started this blog more as a “Mom blog.” I like writing about the daily funnies of raising four boys and home schooling, about public urination and my various phases and crazes. I like randomly spewing my childhood memories out into the ether. But if you must know the truth, […]

What is Biblical Womanhood?

Well, I have plenty of thoughts on the issue but for now I just want to send you over to read a quote that Kim posted on The Upward Call today. It’s sad when such an all encompassing thing as motherhood is denegraded to something loathsome and only for the woman who doesn’t have an […]

Date night

When we were first married we were highly encouraged by many older and wiser folk to have a date night set aside each week or each month where, even after children, we would be able to spend quality time together remembering why we like each other and what we have in common besides an address. […]

Table for Two

When my husband and I were first dating we would spend hours upon hours sitting and like most lovers, staring (not blankly! How dare you think that the next word I was going to write!) *longingly* into one another’s love struck eyes. We would talk non-stop for up to 8 or 9 hours about everything […]

You know that saying?

You know that great saying, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean there’s no one following you.” I love that line. I think I have a matching one and one that is applicable to our family. It goes like this: “Just because you are not superstitious doesn’t mean that strange things won’t repetatively happen to you.” […]

4/16/06 – Getting serious

And now, to make up for my previous frivolity I will speak to more important issues of the day. I have so much bubbling in my head about my sadness over horrible things I’ve heard in the news recently regarding the various cold blooded slayings, the attacks across the world, the threats on our country.

3/13/06 – Grace is like a mechanic

Grace, like a mechanic, is for the broken. Are we ashamed to bring our car into the mechanic when it needs fixing? Do we stay away from the mechanic because we don’t want to admit that the car needs fixing? Would we rather walk or take the bus than face our mechanic? Do you know […]
