Combo Plate

This morning, as I was putting eggs in my bra to get them up to room temperature, I realized that the blog has had a lack of variety. In my first blog post I boldly claimed there would be funny and embarrassing stories, or maybe some rural sign hilarity, and I have not delivered. Well,... Continue Reading →

Remember Remember

So, I watched this on YouTube, and wept. (silently, behind a closed door, because of that one time my kids found me crying in the laundry room and narced on me) I love this song. Love it! (Except for the line with the wobbly doctrine that makes me twitch. Does no one read the Westminster... Continue Reading →

Christmas Past

You can't eat fruitcake forever. At some point, you're going to have to watch a movie. If you've reached this point in the holiday, here are six movies I watched recently that I would definitely recommend! Well, mostly. Read on! Dora the Explorer and the City of Gold. (rented on Amazon) Pro-homeschooling, pro-responsible archaeology, pro-family.... Continue Reading →

Gladsome Tidings

Shepherds why this jubilee/Why your joyous strains prolong?/What the gladsome tidings be/that inspire your heavenly song? We all know why the shepherds rejoiced. Unto them was born that day in the city of David a savior, who was Christ the Lord! (technically they were sore afraid and it was the angels who were rejoicing, but... Continue Reading →

Dear Friend of a Friend

A friend of mine asked me to write a blog post about parenting, because a friend of hers needed some help with one of her younger kids---I don't have the specifics, but the possibilities are endless! Anyway, I've started this post a bazillion times and ended in disgust at myself each time. I sounded like... Continue Reading →

Availeth Much

  Someone said to me the other day, "I just don't know how to pray for my Christian friends." I thought the person had said "NON-Christian" and so launched into a very unhelpful lecture on How To Share The Gospel. But no, these people are in their early twenties and they are saved, they just... Continue Reading →

Show-Off Dinner Ideas: MOUSSAKA

Remember in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" when elementary-school-Toula opens her lunch box and the mean girl calls it "moose caca?!" Well, that mean girl was mean AND ignorant, because moussaka is wicked good. The first time I had it, the top was a lovely oak-leaves-in-November color and the bechamel quivered with delight. I hated... Continue Reading →

Now I lay me down to sleep

Insomnia is a whirlwind of bewilderment. Why can't I sleep---is it fear? Worry? Elevated cortisol? Hormones? Not enough light during the day? Loud upstairs neighbors? I've got no less than five friends under a "sleep troubles" heading in my prayer journal right now. I maintain that the Lord in His sovereignty can handle insomnia, and... Continue Reading →

Book Reviews With Meg

We veer off the things-I-have-enjoyed-in-the-Word-lately path to go down the bumpy road of book reviews. I say bumpy road because truly, everyone has their own opinion about a book. And they should! Why not?! In giving mine, I'm not looking for robust discussion. I either want people to agree with me and join me in... Continue Reading →
