A Study in Proverbs 31:20-24

A Study in Proverbs 31:20-24

She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.  She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.  Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.  She maketh fine linen,…

Update on my book

Update on my book

This morning I got up with the plan to head {all the way across the grass!!} over to our church.  I had just finished gelling my curls locks and was on the hunt for my flip flops when my phone buzzed with a new message. Curious I picked it up and read….. it was from the publishing company I had sent my book to. The one I had been waiting a month to hear back from. My heart flipped and…

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

In the fall of 1999 I was blessed to be able to travel with my Senior high school class all the way from the west coast to the east coast.  An early morning flight landed us mid-day in the heart of our nations capitol. It was the trip of a life time.  Seeing History come alive was truly incredible!  I remember seeing Lincoln’s Memorial at night, it was beautiful!  I’ve never been the History buff my husband is, but that…

A Study in Proverbs 31

” She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.  She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.”  Proverbs 31:16-19 So, I am not a farmer.  I know absolutely nothing about fields and crops, where good ground is to plant a garden or even flowers for…

My little boy the graduate!

My little boy the graduate!

The day they laid him in my arms was a day I will never forget!  He was 7lbs 6oz and I was in love with every little bit of him!  God had given us a little boy! Yesterday, that little boy graduated from Kindergarten.  Be still my heart. This little guy has been full of life and energy from the start!  He goes non-stop and then suddenly crashes and is out like a light!  He is the type that, if…

I’m not a farmer but I can help with the harvest!

I’m not a farmer but I can help with the harvest!

Dinner had just been made.  Homemade taco salads, complete with the homemade tortilla bowl.. Oh yes I did!  Heavenly! I got the kids plates ready and filled with food.  I sat down and had just began to fill my own salad bowl when the phone rang. Typically we don’t answer the phone during dinner.  We are pretty selfish when it comes to dinner around the table with family.  However, we hadn’t yet prayed, hadn’t yet begun.  I had just literally…

Study in Proverbs 31

She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.  She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. Proverbs 31:13-15 Have you ever known a woman who was diligent?  A woman that was a hard worker in her home?  Though I have not been privileged to know her my entire life, I have heard many…

Mama

Mama

She wakes up in the morning and almost like a robot heads straight for the coffee maker.  She pushes the “Start” button and the life juice begins to trickle into the pot.  She scans the room and begins to think about all the things that are on the agenda today.  “When did life get so busy”, she thinks. As soon as their is enough to fill a mug, she pours her coffee into her cup and finds her place on…

Study Through Proverbs 31

Study Through Proverbs 31

Proverbs 31:11-12, “The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Trust.  If we could sit down this morning over a cup of coffee and discuss this simple yet powerful word, how do you think you would describe it? My children are young and they are constantly asking me to define new words they hear.  Sometimes I…

Five Years in Heaven

Five Years in Heaven

On this day five years ago, I was at the hospital. My husband and I were alone, no visitors came to the hospital.  No prayers prayed with us by our Pastor or other church leaders in that hospital room, as we ventured down one of the most difficult paths we have ever been on. Five years ago my labor was induced, but I was only five months pregnant. We had just moved to a new town two weeks previously.  Our…
