The Stands are Full; They Cheer for Us

The faith chapter.  All the greats. They cheer us on.  Abel, Abraham, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Sarah, Moses, the people, Rahab, Gideon, Barak, Sampson, Jephthah, David, Samual and the prophets. Those by name, but so many more. Women, those stoned ...

Be the Light

Be the light. This is my sixteen year old’s campaign slogan for the TeenPact National Convention election this year.  He’s running for Representative.  (And he’s made it out of the Primaries!  Out of 16 kids in his party, he was in the number 4 spot...

Necessary Words in Writing Well

I’m not a writer.  I have no degree in English, or teaching or any related field.  In fact, I’m so ignorant of the field that I’m not even sure what the related fields would be. But I am a writer, because I write.  And I sit here wondering if I am...

When We Expect Too Much of God

I popped over to my friend Martha’s place and read this title “Are My Expectations of God too High” I expected to read something totally different than what I did.  So, I thought I would bounce off of her to what I was expecting to...

Love is Greater than Math

I’m linking up with Kate again for the crazy, fun 5 minutes of free writing on the one word prompt she gives us. This week’s prompt is GROW. You’d think by now I would have grown past the Math frustrations.  But no.  4 children later Math is still...

Why I’ll Vote For Trump

I don’t have to tell you.  I’m sure you’ve seen it.  The  #neverTrump rhetoric has begun. I’ll admit.  I’m not fond of him.  I think he’s a loud mouth, obnoxious, crass, immoral, jerk. And he certainly would not have been my first...

Let’s Go Fly A Kite

Early spring days always bring us out of doors.  After a cold and mostly snowy mid-west winter, we are all ready for a little sunshine.  The year of my memory was no different.  We had been trapped indoors while the cold and snow blew. Was it the year of the...

Today’s Joy

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4 This verse hangs on our living room wall amid the many pictures of my children at various ages.  And it’s true.  My children are each far from perfect, just as we all are,...

And It Begins…Missing What You Don’t Have

It’s that time of the week.  Time for the craziness called Five Minute Friday.  Where Kate gives us a one word prompt and we write (mainly) unedited for 5 minutes on that prompt.  If you’d like to join the fun, find this week’s prompt here....

Lion and Porcupine

A jungle showdown between Lion and Porcupine.  Yes, it’s rare isn’t it? Lions don’t normally bother with porcupines, it’s not their instinct, but the drought and a fire made for desperate times. Food was scarce and the Lion was hungry.  His...
