Tuesday, June 18, 2013      6 comments

Oh, I have learned to give thanks to the Lord in ALL things, even when my plans don't come to fruition, because invariably something else in GOD'S plan comes about that was much better than MINE. I really had thought that Levi and I would get... Read more

Romans 7:14-25

Sunday, June 16, 2013      4 comments

My grandson made a Father's Day card today, and being but 7 years old, he asked me to help him with the spelling. So to simplify things, I had him dictate, and I wrote it out, so he could copy it. But what he wanted to write broke my heart for h... Read more

Friday, June 14, 2013      5 comments

Here are some things I discovered I could do through Christ. I can mount up steep river banks and descend them, with a helping hand or two for balance. I can walk up steep sandy hills without getting tired...much. I can get in and out of b... Read more

A Heritage from the Lord

Sunday, June 02, 2013      4 comments

I wanted to have LOTS of kids. But because of C-sections, I stopped after the third - which was actually my fourth, because the first was stillborn (cord accident despite emergency C-section). But the Lord has given me a great number of "spiritu... Read more

A Proverb for the Day

Monday, May 13, 2013      2 comments

I like to go to the number of proverb that coincides with the date. So today being the 13th, verse 7 caught my attention. "There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing; and one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches." My lat... Read more

Years in Review

Thursday, May 09, 2013      7 comments

I've been reading other blogs, about ups and downs, two steps forward, one step back. So I thought I'd look through my photo files to get an idea of my own progress. Here I am in 2004, pre-Spark, and I think I was about 250. I'm with my fri... Read more

Lilacs!

Tuesday, May 07, 2013      4 comments

I love Rochester, NY. It has a lot to offer. One of the parks was planted with oodles of lilac bushes, among other flowering trees and plants. When I noticed a lilac in bloom on my way to school I decided to take advantage of the nice weather, g... Read more

Food Experiences

Monday, May 06, 2013      2 comments

One of the fun things about traveling is the new experiences one has - and that includes trying different foods. So, here is my first (and last) experience with Peru's "humarin" (accent last syllable, and light on the "n") In 2003, I was w... Read more

Last Thursday my granddaughter learned she was required to do a project for the school's science fair, so she and Glitterfairy77 were trying to think what she could do. She considered a volcano but settled on a diorama. And "Nina" (me) came on b... Read more

Happy Birthday, "Deah"

Thursday, April 25, 2013      3 comments

My youngest sister as a tot, like most toddlers, had difficulty pronouncing R's. She heard Mom refer to Dad as Dear, and called him "Deah." It caught on - he'd call each of us "Deah" as well, but he was THE original. He would've been 83 tod... Read more
