I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

2012 Summer–super hot, super busy, flying by!   1 comment

I began the summer break on approximately May 1, 2012, with the completion of 4 classes – the most I’ve ever taken – centered on teaching itself (prerequisites done!).  I took Democracy and Education, Special Education, Motor Development, and Speech and Language courses, and with the heavy focus on writing in general in these courses […]

18 years ago —   Leave a comment

With Colleen’s birthday coming up on Tuesday I felt like posting some publishable parts of my old diary, from 5-12-94. Hard to believe it’s been 18 years.

5 more drives —   Leave a comment

Jesus commands us to go, and to come   Leave a comment

As I listened to Dr. David Jeremiah today, http://www.davidjeremiah.org/site/radio_archives.aspx, as he was preaching about stress and our lives, I was drawn to this parallel.  He was describing how when we are so stressed out in life that we have a rest in our Savior and God and that not only is it a slight offer […]

More than we can bear? God bears it with us.   Leave a comment

Woke up early this morning and was reading an older journal – and found these older posts from November 1994 and January 1995.    November 19, 1994 Tomorrow is Christopher’s birthday.  4 years old!  He’s got a double ear infection but is now getting better.  He’s been sleeping in the daytime and stays up until […]

Teaching Enjoyment   2 comments

Ahh, so many ways to look at that. I thought of that title the other day while trying to help Chris with some things. And as my mind will play with words I realized there were two ways to look at that. The first way is how when trying to plan events with Chris, I […]
