Turmoil and Truth

Sometimes I write to amuse.  Sometimes I write to record events.  Sometimes I write to reflect.  Sometimes I write because I need make sense of the turmoil in my head or rather my heart.  It is early morning.  My head hurts.  I am drinking my coffee and there is someone else’s child sleeping in the […]

A Spoonful of Sugar

Sometimes I take on large tasks (like this house).  Usually, I have no idea at all of what I have gotten myself into! Perhaps, I see the end of the journey and not the steps/stress to get to the goal.  I had a dream or God gave me the dream…of taking 100 kids on a field […]

Blooming

The conversation with My Principal was short.  I was very excited.  I had an idea! “I have this idea and I promise I will do all the work!” ‘Hmmm, okay…’ “I want your permission to take 100 of our kids to the theater.  CWU is doing Mary Poppins and they are putting on a special […]

Measuring Up the Good Things

It was recently my birthday…and at this point in my life, I’ve had a few. (Most of them celebrated with this ‘Covered Wagon’ cake…whipped cream and chocolate wafers.  Most of them with this my mother’s cake plate and most of them with these little wooden angel candle holders.) The most satisfying thing about getting old/older/stretch-that-middle-age-thing-for-all-it-is-worth […]

My Loving Spouse

The twinkle is back in his eye. The scar on his forehead? I love it, because it says… that he is still here. It was just 6 weeks ago that we had ‘the’ accident. He is looking good!We were blessed and bathed in prayers…. for healing, for strength, for patience, for a new job…. and […]

Mr. T and Z

We have been having Mr. T and Z weekly since last fall.  Their Mom needs some respite care as a single Mother with health issues.  In case you are wondering, no, we are not wonderful for doing this.  We just feel called to walk along these two kiddos, to be their ‘local Grandparents’ as it […]

Situation Normal

My Loving Spouse continues to mend for which we are both quite grateful. The farm has returned to ‘normal’.  The three cows managed to get into the barn one night and threw themselves a colossal party.  They ate and pooped and pooped and ate.  I am quite sure, that they had the time of their […]

Waiting

Although this blog is filled with ‘my’ words, it has been your words, response, fellowship and prayers that have carried me through the last few days and where I have found my ‘rest’.My Skinny Cousin’s prayer with scripture attached allows me to reread and repray and rest in God’s word.My dear wise friend that simply […]

The Poopmomitor

The ‘poopmomitor’ is my farm way of measuring snow.  Yesterday’s snow fall was sufficient to  cover all current poop on the ground.This makes the farm look white and clean, when in reality as soon as it thaws a bit…well, let’s just say, it will not be pretty. This is how I am feeling as well.  I […]

The Ultimate in Gratitude

It could have been worse.  It could have been a lot worse and so, we are very grateful. Recently Spokane had a major wind storm knocking down trees, like no body’s business.  Number One Son and Number One Wife had a 100 foot red fir that needed to come down.  It would be cheaper for […]

Dream and Do

I will admit, that often these days I feel like a very small person in a very big world.  I attempt to keep an open mind as I read the opinions on Face Book…about our world…about people that have no land…  ALL of it overwhelms me…the situation and the intensity of arguments and  opinions!  My […]
