Sometimes it takes something bad happening for us to learn a lesson. Back in February, Teenager tested our parenting words. We told him his brand new iPod that he received for Christmas was “as good as stolen if you take it to school!” I’m not sure what about that didn’t sink in with him. The third or forth time he took it to school, during his weight-training class, he left it and his cellphone in a “hidden” pocket in his book bag. He came back to a bag that had all the zippers left gaped open and a “hidden” pocket that was empty! No iPod, no cellphone, no mechanical pencils that accompanied the electronic devices...Read More
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. ~ Proverbs 11:25 ESV
Oh what a marvelous feeling it is to know you’re doing something for someone who can’t do it for themselves! Being the hands and feet of our Lord and Savior is just so worth the hard work. It’s a drop in the bucket comparatively, you know?
A few weeks ago Rob’s and my Sunday School class got together with our families for a service project. Although, Rob and the boys were busy with a scouting event, I decided to be the representative for our family. There is a member of our church who’s home needs a lot of work. It’s out in the country and has been vandalized and broken into by “meth heads” over the last couple of years...Read More

The last few days I’ve been hearing a bird seeing. Today, I was finally able to spot him waaaay up in the trees above my house.
I think I’ve taken way too many pics of this ivy in the wooded part of my backyard. However, this one is the first one that I’ve halfway liked. Have no idea why I like it and haven’t liked the others.

I came across a great blog today called The Orange Rhino challenge. I think I may have seen it before. However, today something made me look a little further when Google brought it to me while I was looking for something else. Anyway, I found it appealing to the eyes, because I adore orange and pink. It peaked my interest and I wondered what the challenge was. This mom of 4 boys under the age of 5 made a challenge last year to stop yelling. WOW! “God is looking out for me,” I thought to myself as I read about her challenge. I was never a yeller, until I became a grown up. Something inside me changed, with 2 boys, a husband, a career, and all the stresses that are thrown upon us when we become adults...Read More
This pewter Angel comes with a card that reads: We stand in need of mentors to guide us and enlighten us. Angels were given that privilege–we call them teachers. Angels bring the light of knowledge, providing courage to the faint of heart, and help us triumph over challenges. They provide insight and understanding, and they connect us to higher thinking. Angels guide us down new paths and open gates to the vast unknown. They instill hope when we thirst for meaning. Angels are dedicated to us and our success. They like us even when we are most unlikable and believe in us even when we don’t believe in ourselves. There are angels in our schools sent to help children grow. With strong intentions, sincere efforts, intelligent execution–loyal service is an angel’s gift. –Kathleen M...Read More
Tostino’s is rolling out a couple new flavors of their popular Pizza Rolls. I grew up enjoying the good ole standby pepperoni Pizza Rolls, but now they are taking pizza rolls to all new level.
They now have:
- Cheesy Garlic
These were probably my favorite. However, be careful not to over cook these. I cooked them about a minute too long, because I was trying to get them a little browner. Most of the cheesy garlic-ness came out on to the pan.
If you would like to try these new flavors for free, just commen...
