Outside our window...
Middle Skittle is no longer angry. Life can be tough for a ten-year-old.
I'm thankful that she went to bed peacefully, having forgiven and having been forgiven.
I am wearing...
Lavender essential oil
From the kitchen..
Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
Creamy Tomato Soup
A simple meal after the busyness of violin classes and orchestra practice,
not to mention all the driving in the rain.
I am learning...
God loves me.
I don't think we ever stop learning this.
that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith--that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:16-19
I am creating...
A compilation of children's stories to publish.
I am going...
to Disneyland. No really, I am.
I am remembering...
Spring and Summer.
Do you remember them too?
Maybe if you're on the other side of the world you are remembering Winter.
Winter is fine, he says, "Hi."
I am reading...
What? Are you surprised?
One doesn't need to enjoy cooking to enjoy recipes.
It all started with regular visits to the orthodontist and the words:
"Seared scallops with cucumber and jalapeño"
Around the house...
The Christmas nativities are still on display...and the poinsettias.
Do I have to put them away?
"Good night, God bless you, See ya tomorrow, I love you!!"
This salutation made from a child snuggled in her quilts is a sure sign of peace at The Times.
Some of my favorite things...
Answers to tough questions and the people who answer them.
A few plans for the rest of the month...
A whole month?
I plan on getting up early, driving to the city, visiting the orthodontist and reading about goat cheese and pork loin.
Beyond that, I bet the kids could tell you.
A picture thought to share:
My Middle Skittle at six years old.
What a unique and precious girl, and what amazing changes in
just four years.
Won't you pray for her with me? She is having a hard time lately.
