My Thoughts on ODL

So it’s the second year of online distance learning. My kids miss their face to face classes, but I still think ODL is the best set up. And I don’t mean just for this season. Last year taught us a bunch of things. I heard my older daughters complain about school being different. About theContinue reading “My Thoughts on ODL”

Learn From Your Mistakes

Our daughters love to talk. They ask a lot of questions. And though it’s overwhelming at times, with the three of them always having something to say (poor daddy 😂), I so appreciate and enjoy our conversations. A few weeks ago, they asked about our past relationships. Some were easy to answer, some were not.Continue reading “Learn From Your Mistakes”

DIY Mom

One of the best decisions we made for our home is putting our old floorboards on the wall. I like to keep things simple and minimal, so even though I don’t decorate the whole house, decorating the wall brings some attention to any celebration and to the celebrant. I like to reuse and repurpose. HavingContinue reading “DIY Mom”

His Eye is on the Sparrow

And He watches over me and my family….. We were recently at our friends’ place, which they call The Lord’s Camp. Our girls were with their two friends. They went into the pool together while I was watching them in the front porch. I got distracted when our friends (the owners) arrived though, and IContinue reading “His Eye is on the Sparrow”

What Do You Love About Mom?

The girls gave me cards for mother’s day, and in the evening, during dinner, King asked the girls what they love about me. ❤️ So what do they love about me?

Radical Change

Motherhood. A beautiful gift from the Lord. But a gift that takes work and many times, lots and lots of tears. I remember the time, well one of my big moments of great frustration (believe me, there have been quite a few), I was crying out to God because I was at my wit’s end.Continue reading “Radical Change”

Actions and Words

Actions and words. They must go together For what good is one Without the other? By all accounts You are wonderful and good. But you make mistakes Like any human being would. Without your gentle words How do you start to mend? Without your humble words How do you help them understand? Or a giftedContinue reading “Actions and Words”

Raising PKs

One evening, both of our older girls told me that they were exempted from their Christian Living final exam. They said that CL is easy for them. I asked why it was easy, one of them replied with…. “Because our dad is a pastor and our parents (you) teach us the Bible.” I cringe whenContinue reading “Raising PKs”

CHANGE

Change. Inevitable, you surmise. But some are just so unexpected. They catch you by surprise. The reason eludes you, Leaves you scratching your head. At night, it keeps you awake, Away from the comfort of your bed. Memories surface Of shared good times and bad. You wonder what happened. You can’t help but feel sad.Continue reading “CHANGE”
