Knit Together

I have a strange way of grieving. Lately, I am always on the verge of tears. Today, my eyes welled up with tears at least three times and I can’t even remember why. But I don’t usually slow down or withdraw. I cry frequently and then feverishly keep my hands and my head occupied. (officially […] Read more…

Anniversary Post

I fiddled around all day, trying to think of something just so, to say to the this man with whom I have shared my soul’s truest longings, my mind’s most intimate questions, and my heart’s deepest sorrows—-for these past nine years.

The faces of love….

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, […] Read more…

I Brake for……..

Have you ever ridden with anyone who was a brake pumper?  Who, say 75 feet before you reach a light that’s red, pumps the brakes 4 or 19 times?  And then even after you’re at a complete stop, pumps 3 more times.  And if you were mid sentence during the pumping, you’re sentence would become, […] Read more…
