Taking a break

February 21st, 2014

Just a little word to let you know that I’m taking a break. I don’t know when I’ll be back. I’m taking some time to focus on private writing and conversation. Everything I have written up to this point has been out in the public view and I need some time to commune with God […]

“Happy, Happy, Happy” Day at Bass Pro Shops

Ney with Auntie Rei at Bass Pro Shops Big fish! There was once a turtle guy that climbed on top of his friend because he was going too slow. He realized too late that he was stuck and would only be able to get down when his friend moved. Oops! This is the game that […]

Babies. Babies Everywhere.

Lila's balloons. :)

I spent a lot of time this week accomplishing things, but feeling like I accomplished nothing at all. I tried to be very “little man-centered” this week. After his vaccinations last week he came down with a fever and a horrible cold that he’s still struggling to get over. I think this week has done […]

Wednesday, I was over at my mother’s spending time with my family because my cousin Jon came over to our side of MA for a visit. Everyone but Jon had tacos (he’s a picky eater. Always has been. Give him cereal and call it a day.), and we all sat around my mother’s kitchen table […]

Dealing with the fear of disappointment- Peace- OneWord365

Would you believe there are some people who get extremely discouraged when people even look at them with a look of disapproval or disappointment? Would you believe they get discouraged to the point they just don’t care? I have always been told that I don’t take criticism well. This is true, especially when that criticism […]

Making these cookies is a family tradition. My cousin usually makes them, but it was just too much for her to do by herself. I can only imagine! We had 5 people working together to do the job and we still took HOURS to make these for the entire family. Neylan and Auntie Kay Kay, […]

A little glimpse into our busy December

I know I barely did any writing during the month of December. I’d be willing to give anyone a break around this time of year. There’s just so much going on. It’s the one time of year that the family gets together. And I’m glad to say that we adult cousins all had so much […]

“Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.”- Peace- One Word 365

January 8th, 2014

NewPath

I have been going through the Bible, reading any passages containing the word “peace” and I realized that maybe, the peace I’m looking for isn’t always called “peace”. I was reading Psalm 4 yesterday, because verse 8 contained my word, but Psalm 4:4 found its way into my heart and took up a home there. […]

The first change- Peace- One Word 365

After a long talk with my husband, I’ve decided it’s time to move forward with the first change of this year. Being “stuck” in the house with my little boy all day, every day is mentally tiring. The only break is when someone babysits him so I can have a day out with my husband. […]

Where to start- Peace- One Word 365

January 6th, 2014

athousandmiles

I’ve had no idea what to write about when it comes to my search for peace, because I don’t even know where to start. I have, at least, gone through a search in the Bible for the word “peace” and I have written down all the references that contain the word. I have also decided […]
