A love story of the most unlikely pair. How the childish man-boy won my heart in a surprising way.

A love story of a most unlikely pair

  Balancing my tray in the campus cafeteria, I turned from the buffet to search for a seat.  There he was, sitting at a table with a group of my guy friends.  “Come on over and meet Jimmy Gray!”  They motioned to the second-semester student, pulling out a chair across the table from him. I observed the new guy leaning …

When all you want is a donut

It’s time for Five Minute Friday over on Katemotaung’s blog!  Set the timer, write for five minutes, and post!  Today’s word prompt:                                                hope. GO.

The two types of people in the world

In case you haven’t noticed, there are two types of people in the world:  those who pay attention; and those who don’t. I never pay attention. I don’t notice when my husband trims his beard.  I don’t pick up on the fact that the potato chip bag I grabbed in the store is halfway smashed.  I never look up (past 5 feet, …

FLOODS AND SNOWS AND EMERGENCY ROOMS – OH MY!

     Hayley came home for spring break last week!  I always laugh at the term “spring break” because it’s nowhere near spring and we always have a snowstorm.       Last week was no different – only we first we had a flood (mounds of old snow + tons of rain), then the snowstorm.  Needless to say, we spent a lot of time at …

WHERE IS YOUR IMAGINATION TAKING YOU? 52 verses

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”  2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (ESV)     Where are your thoughts taking you lately?       Do you find yourself traveling down roads …

SNOWSTORM FUNNIES (HOW WE COPED)

     Shew, I am so glad we got back from Florida in time for the snowstorm of 2015.  I would’ve hated to miss that.             I think my people and I are beginning to tire of each other.  After all, we have seen each other within the confines of this house every day for 8 days.  All forms …

Fun(ny) weekend with my Valentine

Last week I flew to Florida to join my husband, Jim (who had been here for 2 weeks already). I know, it’s about time, right?!  But he wasn’t in Florida that whole time.  Here’s how it went down:      1.  He flew to Florida on Monday      2.  He flew to San Diego Wednesday      3.  He flew back to Florida …
