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

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

About running –   Leave a comment

As the spring arrives, I have been thinking about running in various ways. I have used it as a thing to worry about – as spring comes every year, the boys would get more boisterous about escaping the house and running off (or in Chris’s case, usually walking very fast).  As far as I’ve heard, […]

Trivial and important often reside together   Leave a comment

As a person who has always been not so good at multi-tasking, I have had to learn to become quite good at it! The important things in my mind always are: Taking care of our children and the family’s basic needs. Roger and I getting our work done. Us getting our schoolwork done when we’re […]
