Month: September 2008 Hard to sleep… I’m a mother.

Coyotes are whining and howling in the field.  They sound horrible and shrill — like someone is trying to kill them (sometimes I wish someone would).  Sounds seem magnified tonight… the dishwasher, the washing machine, the dryer, the icemaker and the water refilling it.  O, and the coyotes.  Suddenly, they’ve become quiet.  Maybe my neighbour said, that’s it… continue reading

Month: September 2008 Fireproof – the movie – Please *go* see it!

I very rarely make a bold movie recommendation and I don’t think I’ve ever suggested that there’s a movie *every* married couple must see.  Until now.  Now, I’m not caught up in the afterglow of a tremendous movie or in a bunch of emotional hype that seems to be the order of the day when a person comes continue reading

Month: September 2008 the obamessiah ch ch ch chant change

The sad thing is… all the emotional, sensual, persuasive and innocent hope seems to me to be just a figment of imagination. And yet, the power of suggestion alone is astonishing. Consider the change change could do to change these days.

Month: September 2008 The USS Titanic – USS Usury

I browse the news(and marvel!!)  and think of the many times the US has been likened to the Titanic… the ineffable, unsinkable US — the Titanic that was described as the ship that even “God himself could not sink…”  Well… I wonder, had he been alive, what would that man have said on April 15, 1912? So you continue reading

Month: September 2008 life’s monuments

I woke up this morning with the sun beginning to paint the sky and I thought back to yesterday morning… My first thought was: I did it!  I did something I had been wanting to do – something I had planned to do ten years ago – but ten years ago I had a new baby, I had continue reading

Month: September 2008 money – money – money – money

Everywhere – it’s everywhere. Talk, talk, talk… the economy, jobs, bailouts, recession, buyouts, loans, failures, credit, money, money, money.  My husband’s in the swimmingpool business. In the Pacific Northwest.  We know about the downturn.  Got the memo this past summer – it wasn’t really a banner year.  But you know… this country’s been in a free fall for continue reading

Month: September 2008 No Greater Joy

I suppose I’m still in my travels down the melancholy memory lane.  I don’t know if the Autumn season has brought all this on or not — I don’t know if the realization of my own life-season of autumn has brought all this on. Whatever the case, I’m still strolling among falling leaves. To God be the glory… continue reading

Month: September 2008 Just another day in paradise

Joey is the only one of our children who regularly carries the roosters around and always has a good time with them.  He’s the one that has the responsibility of looking after the chickens each day and he really takes good care of them.  Andrew had a different and exciting experience with them today.
