I Found It!


I love a good plausible backstory

When we looked at Lazarus and Mary, his sister, story I wanted to share a book with you that I had read. It is a fictional account of Lazarus and his family before and after his resurrection. I love reading biblical fiction as they provide the possible backstory I so long to know. This one is called “Jesus Wept” and is book one in the Jerusalem Chronicles series.

I couldn’t remember the post where I mentioned this book and had searched for it unsuccessfully. While looking again for some of my “favorite books” I found it today and had to share. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Have really missed our time together

Hi all,

Just wanted to drop a quick note tonight and say I’m sorry for not posting for the last week. I had house guests while my house was being worked on. I didn’t have any quiet time to sit and write. Tonight is a wash because of traveling all day. I will be back tomorrow to pick up where we left off. Thank you for your faithfulness. Sorry mine slipped for so long. 🙂

It’s been a busy summer!

I wanted to start off by apologizing for being so sporadic in my posting this summer. I have 5 grandchildren that I get to offer care for during the summer. Sometimes it is a few hours a day and sometimes it is a weekend or even a whole week. I love writing when they are here because I can speak into their lives during the discussions it brings up but I can’t hear myself think when they are all here lately. I also get distracted by the programs they have going or the games they are playing instead of writing. Everyone is back in school this week and even the granddaughter I watch the most starts this year, so I will have a lot more quiet time. A VERY mixed blessing there. I plan to get right back on track now.

Two weekends ago we had our annual camp for the grandkids! I was SO glad that almost all of them came. We were only lacking one and it was due to distance and age. He is only 4 months old so wouldn’t be participating much and they live on the other side of the US from us. Looking forward to them joining in once they are done in the military. We had a GREAT time with the 8 who could attend and their parents. Can’t wait to see what next year holds for this amazing group!

Camp NaPa campers!

Please pray for me!

This is me right now!

I’m sorry for not writing the last three nights. I have been inundated with people and projects. My latest one is driving me CRAZY! I can’t get my books to balance and I am in need of prayer to find my mistake(s). I don’t know what to do at this point. PLEASE pray for me too. I can use all the wisdom I can get.

I promise to get back on track as soon as possible. Hoping for tomorrow!

My mom sent me an email recently and told me that I don’t even have my name on my own page. She also wanted me to share some of my personal story too. When I started this blog, I was mainly concerned about stating what I was hoping to accomplish, and why I was going about it the way I was. I guess now is as good a time as any to peek behind the curtain and meet me.

This is hard for me to do because I don’t know what parts to share, so I’m going to go with some of the highlights from beginning to now. Feel free to skip any part you think too boring.

I am the second oldest child in a family with five children. We are my older sister (Karen), me (Annette), my brother (Tim), my second brother (Daniel), and my baby sister (April). Our home was seldom quiet with all of us running around getting into mischief. One of our favorite phrases, when my parents would leave us at home for some reason, was “Nobody tell on nobody and nobody gets in trouble.” My poor parents probably still don’t know half the things we got into, and I’m still not telling! The celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2011 so we at least didn’t destroy them in the process. Read more »
