• Life Changes

    I had no idea 9 months ago when I wrote the post Colder Weather that I wouldn’t have the time or even desire to blog for such a long time.  As my title says, there have been a lot of Life Changes in the past nine months.  For the most part, I can’t talk about a lot of the changes but to say one of our children has gone through some major issues which have impacted our lives tremendously.  It’s been a long, hard, tiring, road, but we’ve seen the Lord work miracles during this time.  The Lord gave me Ephesians 3:20 when it first started getting really hard in…

  • Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ 9/29

      FOR September 25 Outside my window…It’s dark out, so the curtains are closed. I am thinking…I hadn’t done one of these in a while, so why not do one? I am thankful…That I am feeling better and healing well.  After my surgery and recovery I was still feeling a bit run down and I was still low on iron.  At times it felt like it would take forever before I would have more energy.  Then a week or so ago I was walking and I felt like I had normal energy.  😀  I continue to feel better day by day, and I continue to take my iron pills.  I…
