Not Exactly What I Asked For
As you may have noticed, I didn't exactly finish my Advent writing.  No shocker, as Christmastime took over and busy invaded and I struggled to feel it this year.  Writing doesn't exactly happen when I am rushed, and rushed I was.  When the kids were finall...

Prostitutes and Princesses {Day 10}
We started reading our Christmas devotional a few days early this year because we always fall behind and I always get frustrated:) Not that I am a control freak or anything. Unwrapping the Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp is hands-down my absolute favorite devo...

Absolutely Nothing {Day 9}
I'm playing catch-up today.  This is the last full week of the semester for my homeschoolers and next week is mid-terms for my big kids who go to "regular" school. I have never been more ready for Christmas break. Laundry has piled up to gigantic proportion...

Mostly Dead {Advent Day 3}
      "And to the angel of the church in Sardis write:  'The words of him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.      "I know your works.  You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead.  Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is ...

Choosing Contentment {Advent Day 2)
Isn't it funny how, when God starts convicting your heart about something, He comes at you from several directions at once? I awakened early yesterday morning, did twenty minutes on the elliptical trainer while listening to a sermon online and catching up o...

Joylessness and the Cure {Advent-Day 1}
I have never felt less like putting up Christmas decorations than I did this year.  The lack of enthusiasm bothered me.  I looked in frustration at the boxes upon boxes of Christmas stuff that I have collected over nearly twenty years of marriage and felt b...
