The Box

The purchase of a simple box  for the husband was inspired by this letter to Ann Landers: “Dear Ann Landers: Last weekend, we celebrated my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. This morning, they left on a long-awaited trip to Hawaii. They were as excited as if it were their honeymoon. When my parents married, they had only […]

Honesty and Integrity

The first time I remember truly comprehending the meaning of integrity was my first year of marriage. We were living in Washington, DC, enjoying the newlywed bliss.  That summer Promise Keepers came to our Nation’s capital for a big rally of some sort.  My husband was excited.  His former boss even flew in from Texas […]

13 things

Happy New Year! The husband and I had an ABSOLUTELY incredible time alone on our anniversary.  I do believe that we were in desperate need of quiet time sans kiddos.  We experienced an amazing meal at Old Hickory (at the Gaylord Texan) and shared in sweet conversation.  I can’t recall a time when our conversation […]

Where did the time go?

One week off from work and another one left to be enjoyed.  I am a happy momma. I thought I would have tons of time to post but it seems that I have been involved in other endeavors.   I have certainly enjoyed time with my sweet, sweet MAN whom I married 13 years ago […]


A note from the husband: I am in Zambia!  I made it in just fine at 6:00am this morning.  After getting through customs and briefly waiting for my luggage, I met Greer who was waiting for me and we drove to the Mullungushi Housing Village.  Mullungushi was built in the 1950s for the Queen of […]

A little detour

Here are some photos from my husband’s trip to Guatemala this week.    Confused?  Thought we weren’t going there? Well, we are not.   Not to live, that is. But even though the husband’s current vocation is serving orphans in Zambia, Africa, we still have a heart for the children of Guatemala who we grew to […]

I have a hankering to write something deep

but I got nothing.  Sure, several topics come to mind but nothing stimulating.  Well, actually plenty that is stimulating and exciting but the real question is whether or not I can produce anything worth reading. Have I mentioned that I have another love?  It’s name is Facebook.  Well, lately I have been tagged about 253 […]

There is something about this man that makes me do just about anything

                                   And I mean ANYTHING.  We are embarking on a whole new journey of  not just saying we trust in God for providing for us but ACTING upon it.  Anyways, who needs a salary when you have a man such as this? Oh yeah!  We do have a few little mouths to feed.  And the bunny.


vb- “to suppose, think; to look forward to: ANTICIPATE” I was contemplating all that has unfolded over the past few days.  The word to describe me in all of it is numb.  And why on earth am I numb?  Numb to some great things.  Still numb. It struck me that it all had to do […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like (the twelve days of ) Christmas

Last year I tried something new and apparently, according to this note I found under my pillow, it is destined to be a Knightly tradition.  12 Days of Knightly Christmas On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me . . . A message to kiss her nightly! On the second day of […]
