A friend of mine (thanks, Stacy, if you ever see this!!) sent me a media file titled The Invisible Woman. I realized how invisible I've felt at times in my life... and how much of my life I've spent wishing I WAS invisible because I didn't love... Read more

Sunday, December 06, 2009      26 comments

One of the happiest days of my husband's time here in Louisiana (Allentown boy that he is) was when he heard a Bass Pro Shop was being built here. For MONTHS he awaited the completion of construction and then the grand opening. I didn't get it... Read more

Coordinating the doctor who inserts the tube into the kidney and the laser machine that busts up the stones (which travels from hospital to hospital) has proven impossible for this week. They could do the procedure NEXT Friday, but Bill returns... Read more

Our church service this morning included testimonies of thanks. I wanted to share with you what I had to say: This has been an exciting year for me. As most of you know, I stand before you with only nine toes. I lost the little toe of my... Read more
Digging Our Own Graves
Friday, November 27, 2009      18 comments

You ever see one of those movies where the bad guy makes the victim dig his own grave? How awful is that? Isn't that the final word in indignity? I can't even begin to imagine it, knowing that with each moment, I dig myself deeper and deeper ... Read more

I had never heard of such a thing. I was mesmerized. I was moved. I cried. I smiled. I rejoiced. I sobbed. I worshiped the God who has made all things new in my heart and continues to make all things new as I grow in faith, in the knowled... Read more

It was my great honor and joy to have befriended Pebbles. Her health struggles were many and severe. Even in the midst of them she found time to reach out to so many of us, her SparkFriends. Her faith in God and His word was genuine. Her des... Read more
