I recently went through another round of the “shipping shuffle.”  I know you’ve done this dance too.  I ordered something on a Wednesday that I expected to be delivered on a Friday (I was sure it said 2 day shipping).  Being excited about my new thing, I began clicking the...

Do you know that feeling you get when you come to an end of a project and it turns out great?  Well, my big summer project was obtaining a vehicle suited for towing my camper and getting both vehicle & camper ready by the time our annual church camp came...

Wow!  The journey God sends us on can be so different than anything we could imagine.  I want to simply give God praise this Tuesday, for the particular way He was involved in the last 14 days.  In this span of two weeks we have had celebrations connected to our...

Isn’t it a joy to start our days several mornings in a row with a shining sun and cloudless sky?  Never mind that there is frost on the windshield and I need a coat…still.  It isn’t snowing!  It isn’t dreary and raining.  It just seems to help us feel that...

This thing called time is surely a strange beast.  How can I call it strange when it’s “normal”? Because time plays tricks on us!  An hour is not always an hour.  One hour waiting to be taken back for your doctor appointment (which they insist you come 15 minutes early...
