I sleep an extra hour and a half this morning. When I finally stumble to my chair, I sit and stare at the neighbor's fence across the street. Eventually, I turn on the wedding episode of Bones and sip my coffee. Partway throu...

grace upon grace
The word for this year is grace. Last year I learned a lot about how I can't jinx anything, and I feel so much better about life and myself and everything. God is sovereign, and everything is inside his circle, and he's not jinxing anything, either. And did...

Always an Act of Grace
So our phones were about to get shut off. I had 24 hours to come up with enough money to pay the phone bill. I prayed. God reminded me that I could pay half, if a couple of our craigslist items sold. They did. I called Verizon and asked if I could pay half....

October. Phew.
So. Raise your hand if you're glad it's finally October. My hand is raised so high it's pulling my arm out of its socket. We've made it through September, the Month of Difficult Transitions. Everyone is ensconced in school, we've started our fall meetings a...

Dupdate
That's short for Doris Update. First and most importantly, I am pleased to say I successfully vacated my vehicle this morning before the end of the Kiel Mortgage radio commercial, preventing me from having to hear the most insipid, inane, maddening commerci...

rivers of grace
So... I would give you a big hug, but I don't know who you are. Conveniently, there is the internet. This way, you can stay anonymous and I can say thank you. I'm curious about you. Are you a group of people pooling your resources? Are you one family giving...

Grace through Jonathan's Eyes
A couple of days ago, Jonathan asked me to edit his writing assignment before he transferred it to final draft in postcard form. To him, it was nothing special, just a routine writing assignment for his school folder, a fake "postcard" to his grandma that s...

Toilet Water Is Not for Drinking
When the boys were small, they could fill up their own water bottles, but they had difficulty getting the lids on and off. We worked out a system. I unscrewed the lids, they ran to the kitchen sink and filled them, and I put the lids back on. One day, three...

What I Learned from a Hamster with a Death Wish
For the first, oh, 30-35 years of my life or so, I rebelled internally whenever I encountered a boundary. I wanted to do whatever I wanted to do, and no one could stop me. I hated boundaries! James, age 5, with Thomas. So did our hamster, Thomas. The boys g...

Introduction
I am God's daughter. I am Jeff's wife. I am James and Jonathan's mama. I write. I sing. I take pictures. I collect red things. I rest. I cry. I laugh. I ignore the dishes. I stare at the laundry. I am learning to give thanks in all circumstances. It's slow going.
