No Ordinary Grandmother

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Feb 28 2007 - 04:30 PM

My Grandmother passed away last summer.  Today is her birthday and I've been thinking of her a lot.  I miss her.  I have so many fond memories of her that I wanted to dedicate this blog to just a few of those. I wrote a poem about her that the preacher read at her funeral.  It was titled No Ordinary Grandmother.  The title I picked was perfect...

Beach Bummed

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Feb 21 2007 - 01:11 PM

My favorite place in the world is the beach.  I love everything about it--the beautiful white sand between my toes, the smell, the constant rolling of the waves, the sunrise and the sunset.  There is just something about the beach that makes me feel good! I am a self-admitted worry wart.  I worry a lot about little senseless things!  I get "...

Portable Toilet with a Big Red Bow

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Feb 17 2007 - 11:44 AM

Every Saturday morning, My daughter and I go out walking.  We love the fresh air and exercise.  This morning, we noticed a Portable Toilet (Port-a-Pot) at the construction site for a new home.  My daughter made some comment about it and it reminded me of a funny story--something that would have embarrassed my daugher terribly had it happend to her....

Bad Hair Day

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Feb 17 2007 - 11:01 AM

Here is another one of my devotions for "tweener" girls.  My daughter came up with the theme for this one. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of  jewelry and fine clothes.  Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.  1 Peter 3: 3-...

One Huge Wallet!

Posted in Jobs & Career on Tue, Feb 13 2007 - 07:36 PM

Have you ever met those Dad's that keep a string of pictures in their wallets?  You ask them how their kids are doing and they not only tell you but they show you! You get to see several years worth of school pictures, baseball pictures, cheerleading pictures and the family portrait!  He brags profusely on each as he goes through them being...

He Understands

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Feb 09 2007 - 06:51 PM

This is the rough draft of one of my devotions for girls. 1 Peter 5:7Cast all of your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.  Have you ever felt like the whole world was against you? Like no one understands? Like you just don't fit in?  Like you don't even want to fit it? Have you ever felt like life just isn't fair and you are tired of it!  All ...

I Told You Once, I'm Not Telling You Again! said the Lord

Posted in Jobs & Career on Thu, Feb 08 2007 - 04:23 PM

I cannot remember if I've said it in a prior blog or not, but I am working on a book of devotions for girls ages 11-13.  I didn't just arbitrarily pick those ages.  I got a distinct message that these were the exact ages that I should target.  I got this message about a year ago in a church service.  For some time, I had been rather unhappy at...

Rock, Paper, Scissors

Posted in Jobs & Career on Tue, Feb 06 2007 - 05:15 PM

Have you ever felt like you had no big plan for your life? (Corporate America would call that "planning to fail").   Have you ever felt like "stuff" just happens to you instead of you making things happen?  (Yeah, we talk about that it the corporate world too!) Have you ever known people who always seem to "have it...
