Distractions and redeeming time

My little one squeaks for a bottle. I prepare the bottle, pick her up, wrap her in a blanket...and grab my phone... Why? Why have my phone. Well, since I am taking the time to sit down, I thought I should check my email, too. And Facebook. And maybe see if I have any moves ready on Words with Friends.So, Squeak drinks her bottle and falls asleep with a distracted mom. How sad. What a waste of time. Sickening. Thank you, Lord, for having the grace to show me what I was Read More


Hurt and Mad, and trying to leave it at the cross…

  So, yesterday, someone really made me angry. Well, really, they hurt me deeply. And the thing that was said was not only hurtful to me, but would have been hurtful to my kids if they knew, too. That being said, that should justify my anger, right? RIGHT??? Yeah, I know, WRONG.... 1 Timothy 2:8 I want men everywhere to life up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing. So, I committed it to prayer. And made a conscious effort to Praise Him. I decided to Read More


Being the Wretch…and being used by Him

~Ever had thoughts about your unworthiness? I have been reminded by my enemy all week that I am a liar, cheat, thief. That I'm lazy, I waste way too much time, and that I am not a good housekeeper.

Hebrews 13:15 says: Therefore by Him, let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. Also Philippians 2:14 says: Do all things without complaining or disputing. And this one really speaks to me. Philipians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but Read More


Yep, it’s been a day

When your day starts with chores that were promised to be done left undone, and milk spilled everywhere, you should just go back to bed. Instead I opted to stay up and burn breakfast. Yep, burned it so bad, even the dog whined when I tried to give it to him... Then my man called on the way to work to say he was coming back home because his car was acting up....he'd need mine. Now, I usually wouldn't mind, but we only go out one day a week. I kindof needed to do stuff today. Milk for the co-op, Read More
