About me

I am a Christian 40-something stay-at-home mom. By Christian I mean someone who is born again by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ as the Savior from sin. I thank God for His patience and grace as He leads me along day by day.

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Jim, for 26 years. We have three boys whom we love dearly and who keep us on our toes….and on our knees.

I enjoy reading, writing, decorating, some crafts when there is time. I have enough projects I’d like to do and things I’d like to learn to keep me busy for the next 50 years or so. πŸ™‚

I had been thinking about starting a blog for some time, and blest with son’s posts about why she blogs convinced me. (I’m glad to be able to stretch my brain by learning new things, but I am new to this, so forgive me if links and things aren’t entirely smooth yet.) While this blog is a home to my “stray thoughts,” I hope it will be a blessing to those who stop by.

  1. First Comment! Very pretty blog.

    That’s right! We keep you on your knees. Now, make us some dinner! Whap-ish! (Just kidding.) (Well, sort of. I am a bit hungry.) πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks, TulipGirl! I am blessed by blest, too.:)

    And as for you, Blog Jones — hope you enjoyed your Chick-Fil-A sandwich and fries! πŸ˜€ (I’m such a bad mommy….)

  3. HI Baraara,

    What a brave lady you are to put your private thoughts out where everyone can read them!

    I have a Blog but it is private because I am too shy to have other people read my words.

  4. Hi Jude,

    Good to see you!

    II Corinthians 1:3-4 says: Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
    Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

    That’s what I am hoping to do — be a help and comfort and encouragement to others by sharing the ways God has helped and comforted and encouraged me through His Word.

  5. I’ve just found your blog and have enjoyed reading your first posts. I was one of your son’s teachers a year or so ago. πŸ™‚

    Keep up the good blogging!
