things never satisfied – post edited 2/6/07

There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough: The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough. Proverbs 30.15-16 Month after month, year after year… on the...

a glimpse of things to come

(I know… I’m going to change the colour scheme/image here… it’s just a little Valentine’s day indulgence.  It’s actually too much for me.) So… Bill Gates says the internet will revolutionize television in the next five years.  If we all get programing devoid of advertising and commentary, who’s going...

The brief change of appearance? I’m thinking about…

anniversaries and valentine’s… flowers and chocolates… music and candlelight… these are a few of my favourite things…  I’m just remembering and looking forward to a few of my favourite things… ♪  Raindrops on roses and  —O, wait— I NEVER think of whiskers on kittens....

revisting books

I think one of the problems with simply borrowing books from libraries instead of buying copies for our own libraries is that we can’t go back and revisit a chapter or even a meaningful sentence very easily. That, and it’s frowned upon to mark up borrowed books. =o) So...

mulling over 31 Proverbs

I’m taking a break from writing – handwriting, that is – my husband has encouraged us, each one, to write out a copy of the Word—the Bible in our own hand—His Words, our writing.  We’ve begun in the New Testament and have set about writing – originally a chapter...

sorting through the biggest problems

And then I wondered…

Is all the cookie dough supposed to be baked into cookies? a few of our children make cookie dough for the sole purpose of tasting it (okay… eating it) by the fingerful handful. Still I wonder about cookies getting stale.  My husband reminded me that cookies do not stay...

A question I’ve never asked.

I’ve been a subscriber to an email list for many years… not really a participant except through occasional private mails but not a ‘regular’ poster. Anyway… as I usually do each day, I browsed the content list to scan the mail. I’m still laughing. O, not at the sister...
