February 2009

by Edie Wadsworth on February 28, 2009

This post has no other purpose but to show you this cute red bird that Lyndsay designed for me…which Steve has informed me is a tree swallow, the best he can tell. I’m working on a post on the subject ‘God’s Law and God’s Gospel’….which I hope to have ready this weekend. Comments will be […]


Hestia, the goddess of hearth and home

by Edie Wadsworth on February 25, 2009

Just call me Hestia-the Homeschooler 1. My winter ‘funk/blues’ (you know, the one I’ve been in for about a year and a half) is almost over.  I’ve been practicing my hitch kicks and have planned to make a small chocolate cake with buttercream icing to celebrate.  (after Lent of course) 2. I’m working on a […]


The Season of Lent and learning from my Father………

by Edie Wadsworth on February 24, 2009

“Lent begins with this realization. That we are a people in exile. That we are wandering far from our true home. And thus the beginning of repentance isn’t merely the terror that one finds in wandering in a strange land; the beginning of repentance is homesickness…..Lent teaches us to fess up to how often we […]


Lenten prayer

by Edie Wadsworth on February 23, 2009

We girlies made it home safely and are knee deep in laundry and life.  My family is the best and I’ll tell you more about that soon.  I’m eeking out every spare moment I can to finish The Problem of Pain by C.S.Lewis, which turns out to be great reading in preparation for Lent. I’m […]


I’m leaving this morning on a girly road trip to Birmingham with my sister, my mom, and our youngest girly children.  It takes me almost as long to pack all my cords (iPhone, MacBook, bluetooth, camera, etc) as it does my shoes (gray wedges, black/gray patten leather pumps, riding boots, wedge boots).  I probably won’t […]


What you are about to witness has been performed by professionals.  Please do not try this at home.   Upon Marcus’ urging and twisting of my arm, I tried a 5 hour energy drink.   And then another. And another.  No, I’m just kidding.  I only had one. But I think it worked.  And then […]


Spring Fever

by Edie Wadsworth on February 16, 2009

You might assume that all I did this weekend was quote Loretta Lynn.  You would almost be right.  However, while Stevie had a real fever and cough (so sorry honey…that I gave you all my germs) I had a touch of Spring Fever.  And found myself longing for birds and nests and eggs.  And this […]


"Doo’s done thowed me out, Momma"

by Edie Wadsworth on February 15, 2009

Steve would probably like to throw me out.  I’ve been quotin’ Lorettee all weekend.  You gotta love a man who’ll watch Coal Miner’s Daughter with you….and laugh just as much as you do. Coal Miner’s Daughter does something good for me way down deep in my soul.  I don’t think it’s just a southern thing […]


The Feminization of the Church

by Edie Wadsworth on February 14, 2009

Pay attention when you go to church this Sunday.  Your likely to see significantly more women than men.  Men are apparently leaving ‘the church’.  And just to make our discussion easier, when I say ‘the church’,  I am not speaking of any one denomination.  I mean to refer to the church as Christ’s bride; those […]


In which I confess my tiny obsession with Loretta Lynn…….

by Edie Wadsworth on February 13, 2009


This is where the rubber meets the road.  This is how you tell who your true friends are.  I’ve let you in to my little private space in the world.  I haven’t held back.  At least not much.  You’ve been with me when I  fished disgusting things out of my drain.  You’ve watched me lament […]


What we’re growing………

by Edie Wadsworth on February 12, 2009

1. The cutest little english golden retriever puppy that you ever saw.  who now towers over Scooter (the 3yo maltese)and who I repeatedly find standing on the patio furniture. He’s hilarious. And he’s growing…so fast. 2.  A little girl who loves to be outside.  So we take our books outdoors….and read on the trampoline.3.  Tomatoes, chives, […]


When wishes come true….

by Edie Wadsworth on February 11, 2009

I’m joining Kristen’s Valentine’s Party…..’cause I really love to talk about this guy! This is also a repost….from October 22.  Regular posting to resume when my children aren’t up all night sick and the intervals between my coughs are longer than 10 seconds!If he were a rock star, he’d be Eddie Vedder.If he were a […]


The faces of love….

by Edie Wadsworth on February 10, 2009

This is a re-post from September 28.  As love-day nears, he’s on my mind.  And the little ones talked about Jesus clearing the temple this week in Sunday school.  I went searching until I found this and thought you might like it too. There are so many things to love about this guy. He’s rugged, […]


Blissdom ’09…deconstructed

by Edie Wadsworth on February 9, 2009

For those of you who couldn’t attend Blissdom but who are interested in becoming a better blogger/writer, here’s a few things I learned: 1. Finding Your Rhythm.  Are you a daily blogger?  A twice a weeker?  A twice a monther? No matter what that rhythm is; try to establish one and loosely stick to it. […]


Life is Bliss….

by Edie Wadsworth on February 8, 2009

I’m home. There’s no place like home. My email address was hacked into again while I was gone. I miss my new friends already. My house has been transformed to a man cave. I have full blown bronchitis…complete with fever and sputum. I got weak in the knees to see Stevie again. My girls made […]
