Month: August 2008 to mothers who got their hands dirty.

Today I’d like to acknowledge  the mothers who came before me… mothers who worked long before days dawned and long after suns set — women who, without conveniences, running water, power and supplies, cared for their families – putting them before themselves and tenaciously pressed on through the years of their lives.  It does not escape me that continue reading

Month: August 2008 Bountiful beauty

Pretty soon the beautiful hydrangeas will stop blooming for the year… For now, each morning I love to walk around the yard and see the beautiful variety and  lovely shades of  blues, greens,  purples, lavenders and red hydrangeas… these are  my favourite flowers… but the roses are quite lovely, too. in the rose garden are candlelight roses, lavender, continue reading

Month: August 2008 At my local library in June…

I forgot to post these photos from our local library in June. I was amazed at the blatant message of the posters – considering that they were located in the center of the library next to the computers.

Month: August 2008 China & Jeremiah; Vanity… Pride…

Presentation is everything… image is everything… whatever the cost.  My friend used to tell me these things about the country to which she and her husband were missionaries.  My mother said very similar things upon returning from an extended visit to the same country.  I marveled each time I heard this… incredulous that it matters not at all continue reading

Month: August 2008 I’ve missed blogging…

I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately… things I like to do, things I used to do… habits and regimens that have been most important in my life… things I’ve left off doing, things I need to prioritize. I like to write. I like to blog. I like to share slices of life. I like to continue reading

Month: August 2008 All Eyes on China

The lights, action, cameras… all eyes on China. Remember our Brothers and Sisters in chains. All that glitters is not gold. Pray for China… pray for persecuted Christians in China.
