Railene chose this weeks blog image- her squishy, Keyra It’s hard to believe we are in the month of April already. The temperature is gradually warming; the snow is melting, and my children are finally able to go outside without heavy snow-gear on (usually).

Hide and Seek and Remembering Promises.
A beam of light shining through the pitch-black woods, searching for a shadowed silhouette. Hiding behind a rock, my heart raced as the distance between the seeker and my hiding spot closed. Behind me, about fifty feet “on my six”, was another youth hiding behind a clump of trees. The beam of light leapt over … Continue reading Hide and Seek and Remembering Promises.
Sharing is Caring
"Sharing is caring, Isaac." I watched as Isaac processed the words spoken to him by his big sister. She had reminded him of this novel idea, while sitting at the kitchen table; however I missed the first part of the conversation. Isaac responded, " Benaiah share with me, Railene share, and Ava share with me; … Continue reading Sharing is Caring
A New Chapter: Changing Careers, Checkpoint Children, and understanding Psalm 56.
Well hello there, it's been quite some time since my last blog post. So long in fact, my preoccupations with life and career change made my commitment to my readers slide.

Yet even after I complained … Continue reading “You Can’t Stop It!”
Beauty In The Pain
Walking past the blossoming flowers, the scent of lavender fills my nose. A beautiful aroma, cascading my senses and reminding me of Your Grace. I need this reminder. Why? Because some days are just plain rough. You hear some bad news, and instantly you feel a gut-punch to your stomach - and a hay-maker to … Continue reading Beauty In The Pain
Short and Sweet: Slowly Developing Patience…Very Slowly.
"Fireeeee truck. Fire TRUCK!!! Here comes the firreeee truck." Maybe if I roll over, the song will stop? Grabbing the blankets, I pulled them to the top of my neck and turned onto my side. Silence. A brief lull? Did he actually stop? "FIRE TRUCK! FIRE TRUCKKKK! HERE COMES THE FIRE TRUCK!" It's 6:10 in … Continue reading Short and Sweet: Slowly Developing Patience…Very Slowly.
Days Gone By: Enjoying The Moments Before They Are Gone
I won't keep you long today, but I wanted to share two thoughts with you. Being a parent sometimes isn't easy. It can be stressful; while other days can be down right nuts-o.

The Power of Prayer During Wartime
If I had to pick a powerful image from the Second World War it would be the one above. American tank crews of four Sherman M4A2 tanks, heads bowed and hands clasped, with a Chaplin leading them in prayer in Northern France,1945. Quite an amazing image of battle hardened soldiers, crouching in the mud with … Continue reading The Power of Prayer During Wartime
