Wake the neighbors! Get the word out! Come on, crank up the music, climb a mountain and shout! This is life we’ve been given, made to be lived out … so live out loud.” +++ more
I need to confess something here. I’m just going to be real for a minute and open myself up for your understanding. (Or at least for your amusement; possibly your disgust.) Here’s the deal: I am a terrible housekeeper. more
With the rancor running rampant in the world today, it’s remarkable that the Seven Wonders of the World are staying stitched, at least so far. This day, I cite three personal “wonderments,” none of which rises to the level of minutia. They have long been bewildering to me. Perhaps you’d prefer making your own list. more
If you are looking for a new beginning, stop in at the little quiet-looking church on the right, just south of FM 346 in Whitehouse. If it is warm Sunday morning and there is a sign on the door that says “gone fishing” don’t worry. They are likely at Lake Tyler doing just that, being fisher’s of men. more

Back in 2002, my husband replaced the Bible I had been using since my teens with a new one. I went from a pale pink-colored NIV Teen Bible to a maroon leather-bound NIV Life Applications Study Bible with thumb tabs.

I’ve always been a list maker. As a kid, when I went on trips or to camp, my packing lists were pretty intense. Not only did I determine that I needed four pairs of shorts, I pre-determined on which day I would wear each pair, and with what shirt. That continued into my children’s early years. A week at camp meant mom had to package up entire outfits, down to the socks and underwear, in gallon-sized Ziploc bags, labeled with which day to wear each outfit. I doubt they ever wore them in the right order but it made this mama feel better to know they went prepared. more
