    Sunday Words: Encouragement

    What does the bible say about encouragement?  The bible tells us that we need to encourage others, “sustain the weary one with a word.”  I think we’ve all come across someone who has, I’ve had a terrible, no good day, written all over their face.   Or perhaps knowing someone who is giving up everything to start their dream business, or a young person entering their first year of college.  Whatever it is, we are here to remind them that they do not walk alone and never will.  The lord is always with us and we should unload all of our worries onto him.  And as his disciples, we are told…

    31

    Hi ya. I’ve had something on my mind recently.  It involves the number 31.  If you haven’t guessed it already, this number represents my age in just eleven short days and it affirms that I am hurtling into my thirties.  I could have sworn that just last year I was in Las Vegas celebrating my 21st birthday.  Where did the time run away, to?  Don’t misunderstand, though.  I’m not upset about it, it’s just…different.  I guess I am trying to say that even though I may be hurtling into my thirties at an unimaginable speed, I’m taking it surprisingly well and in stride.  I like where my maturity sits.  Trust…

    Pumpkin Patch

    It’s that time of year folks, were we head over to a local farm, to get our fill of the fall festivities.  This year we attended the Flower Mound, TX Pumpkin Patch.  It is by far the best we’ve been to… so far. This year though, it was hot.  As in, we should be wearing shorts and tank tops with sunscreen sort of hot.  At least to me, anyways.  84 degrees is cool to most people around here. In fact, most people enjoy hot chocolate at the pumpkin patch, but in Texas, we do things a bit differently.  We do snow cones. No need to rub your eyes.  You read…

    Making Butter

    I made butter today.   I’m not sure what possessed me to do it, other than the fact that I had a whole cup of cream sitting in my refrigerator that was about to expire.   I wasn’t in the mood to bake…so I turned to my son Nate… Me: “You wanna make some butter?”   Nate:  Are you serious? Me: Yes.  Do you? Nate: You’re seriously making butter? Me: Yes!! Good Grief! Nate: Ughhhh….I’m going to pass, mom.  (he looked at me like I suddenly grew a second head…sheesh) Am I the only one who has made butter?  Surely not. Any way.  I didn’t do much, my Kitchenaid did all of…
