My secret desire to be a superhero....but only kinda'

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.  Psalm 19:14
I've been working on a post about the power of words.  The power to build or tear down, to encourage or hurt, to bring…

What can I pray for you today?

I've struggled a bit lately with where I belong in this big blogging world.  Compared to some of the blogging giants - the ones that seem to be filled with endless organization and inspiration, words that bless and comfort, and houses that make my 1956 ra…

I'll probably be the mom that's still kissing them in front of their friends even into adulthood.

I was cleaning the shower this morning and thought, first... I hate to clean the shower... and second, I really need a housekeeper.  And it made me think of all the things I do that I don't really want to... and why.
Because 13 years ago I became a mom…

and there were technical difficulties

Technical difficulties abound. 

So if you got the notice of my blog post from yesterday... then couldn't find it.... (really I accidentally deleted it.)  And it was all about pie.  So yum.  

The morning brought us sick kid #1, kid 2 missed his bus, and ki…

Once in a blue moon I post a recipe.....

Y'all already know this isn't a decorating blog... because all my stories would end up looking like this.  

And it's a rare occasion for me to post a recipe... but what the heck.  Gotta branch out sometime.  

The big pie baking plans started yester…

Be still and know that I am God..... and I'm trying to do just that right now.

This week I learned that both young and old eyes can be opened all over again, that decisions made in a moment can affect so many lives, that I should double check my grocery cart before I accidentally steal a gallon of milk, that I can't jump over parked…

Would I rather poke myself in the eye with a stick or get these boys ready for church this morning?

This morning Fireman Dave cut his finger on a potato peeler.  Twice.  And he was upsetting me with all the blood so I dropped and shattered a glass all over the kitchen floor.

And Kid 1 desperately needed boot cut pants - pronto.  And Kid 2's pants wer…

Is everyone wearing a teeny sports bra and tiny pants?

People who start with big hopes and dreams and vim and vigor for their exercise goals seem to always head out to the local gym for guidance.  So here are a few tips from a gal who has seen the insides of more gyms than I can count.  From the days of leg wa…

Awesomeness topped with a headband

Oh my gosh did she just say that?  

Had to go to the dentist yesterday.  Thought it was for a simple cleaning but the dentist said I had a filling that was old and needed replacing.  Old.  Apparently like me.  And with my mouth all numbed and propped open wide…

For Pete's sake people.... STOP saying LIKE!!!!

My kids want to move to China ... or Africa ... or anywhere but here.  Because their mom is mean.  In so many different ways.

Tonight I cooked macaroni and cheese.  Which every other kid in America loves.  And the kids who don't live in America would lov…
