A Different Kind of Christmas

A Different Kind of Christmas

Anita Renfroe posted a song recently, by a Christian artist familiar to me, named Mark Schultz.  Reluctant to listen, knowing full well that I’d find myself in a puddle of tears by the end of the song, I debated.  See, the song was prefaced with something like, “for those of you missing loved ones this … Continue reading

The Post That Never Ends.

The Post That Never Ends.

It feels a little weird to be blogging again.  I’m definitely out of practice.  I’ve always been told to “write what you know”.  Well right now, what I know, is that there have been quite a few events that I’ve been meaning to blog about since my last post.  This may or may not end … Continue reading

The New Normal.

The New Normal.

Thank you all so, so much for your kind words, supportive comments, and encouraging hearts during one of the most difficult times our family has ever experienced.  I’ve thought to myself SO many times… how can people who don’t have faith in Jesus make it through times like these?  The assurance that we’ll all be … Continue reading

In The Meantime…

In The Meantime…

Albeit, time is not something I have a lot of these days, God put it on my heart to post today.  See, he’s been teaching me a lot lately… probably because I’m seeking Him more than I ever have before.  Time with Him everyday has become essential… not out of obligation, but out of hunger … Continue reading

It’s amazing how blogging has opened my eyes to the differences between brands.  I’m not sure if I should start with the part about Eggland’s Best‘s superior nutrition, or their generosity as a company.  Do you remember when I mentioned that Eggland’s Best was going to donate $25 for each recipe post including EB eggs … Continue reading

It’s Only Appropriate.

It’s Only Appropriate.

Each day, as soon as I get to work, I open up my inbox, and there sits my Daily Devotional, just waiting to be read.  Friday morning was no different, but I found it to be a sweet little “coincidence” February 7th, the 2nd year anniversary of Jarid and my engagement, the title was, “Five … Continue reading

New Things, New Year!

New Things, New Year!

As the New Year made its grand entrance, Jarid and I were, as always, surrounded by friends and family. The night was filled with games, noisemakers, fireworks, and food.  When 2014 began, all I could think about was the fact that I wanted my bed.  I’m just NOT a night owl.  We crashed pretty hard … Continue reading

Christmas 2013.

Christmas 2013.

Yes, it is 2014 and I am FINALLY getting the time to post about Christmas (last year ;))  On Christmas Eve, the same as every other year, we traveled to Lancaster to visit and have “Christmas” with my Dad’s side of the family. We surprised my grandparents with a large collage photo of all the … Continue reading
