Taking a SHORT Break

Rise and Shine Steve! Please make this how he wakes up Father.

I should have posted this yesterday because then it would have been to you today. I’m taking a short break to deal with my husband. He is having surgery today to FINALLY address his pain. He has been in pain for 20 years now and we see a light at the end of the tunnel. He doesn’t do well with anesthesia so I’m preparing for extended needs when he wakes up. Fortunately, so is the hospital. They listened to me and have already made arrangements to care for him, in case he needs extra time to fully clear from the effects of anesthesia. We covet your prayers on this issue!

We are already on a short break between the new and old testaments so we can spend Passion week together with Jesus. My “break” will end for certain on Sunday so we can join Jesus as He rides into Jerusalem. I’m looking forward to spending this momentous week with you and Jesus!

Father God, forgive me for distracting myself yesterday. I wasn’t trying to shut You out, just the worries for today. Please be with us as we go into this day. Thank You for providing the opportunity for Steve to have his pain reduced or gone! Please keep him in Your loving arms while he sleeps and wake him up easily. Guide the surgeon’s hands and have him place the electrodes in the BEST place for Steve. I pray a special blessing for all those who serve him during this time. Amen.

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!
