It Itches

It Itches

Sometimes it seems that about anything will spark a testimony with my husband, Todd.  Last Sunday, while sitting on the platform, he had a sudden itch in his back.  He sat, totally preoccupied with his problem, in front of everyone.  He tried to nonchalantly scratch...

Connecting Flight

Connecting Flight

 Abigail had gotten her passport and was ready to go.  When the opportunity came to go to Mexico where her cousins were going to be, she was thrilled at the chance.  To our amazement, she was able to purchase the ticket to southern Mexico with three...

Drunk with Wine

Drunk with Wine

(Abigail has recently testified at church and also posted these thoughts.  I want to share them here.) "And be not drunk with wine wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit." Ephesians 5:18 The power of drink. When someone is drunk, you can smell it on their...

It Is Written!

It Is Written!

Have you ever thought of the weapons that Jesus used to fight the devil?  I’m not sure I’ve thought about it a lot until Sunday when my pastor mentioned it. Jesus had fasted in the wilderness for forty days and surely was weak physically.  Is that why Satan chose that...

Parenting Regrets

Parenting Regrets

We’ve had victories take place in our family this last week.  Someone told me that they appreciated how I had raised my children.  I almost shuddered.  I don’t get the credit for this.  It’s miracles from God.  I’m so full of mistakes.  I’m not a calm or consistent...

Checkpoints

Checkpoints

 (Guest Post by Abigail Hamilton) It had been a long day. I had already been in Mexico for a week and had only a couple more days before my plane was to fly out. We had left that morning from San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico and were hoping to make it to...

Mother, May I?

Mother, May I?

When we were young, we really enjoyed a game of “Mother May I.”  One of us would be the “mother,” and everyone else were the children.  “Mother” would go down a line of children, telling a set of directions like, “Take two giant steps.” We had to ask, “Mother, may...

With My Eyes Shut

With My Eyes Shut

I wonder if I’m the only literal person in the world who has been amazed by the pictures in the Dr. Seuss book of Green Eggs and Ham.  (If these pictures weren’t under copyright, I would love to include them here.)  The story has a discussion between Sam,...

Appetizing

Appetizing

"O taste and see that the Lord is good."  Psalm 34:8 I want people to see my fruit and be hungry for what I have. When I was young, before there were microwaves (remember those days?), heating up leftovers was a different process.  We would come home from church on a...

Minimalist or Hoarder?

Minimalist or Hoarder?

Sometimes I wish I were a minimalist.  But the truth is I'm not!   I was raised by parents who came through the depression and knew how to save and reuse.  Yes, they also had clutter. So do I.    By now, most of you are probably aware that because of mold in our...
