Car Conversations

Mariah: Mom, the clouds look like they are moving.
Mom: Yup
Mariah: Where are they going?
Mom: Hmmm...not sure.

Mariah: Granola bars and lullabies
Mom: What?
Mariah: Grr, grr, grr, granola bars and lullabies
Mom: Ok (not sure what the heck she is talking about)
Mariah: I mean it
Mom: Ok (still have no idea, but she means it)

(Mariah sees a convertible with the top down)
Mariah: Mom, what kind of car is that?
Mom: A convertible
Mariah: Can we get one of those?

A Prayer

Here is a prayer that someone sent me. I thought I would share it with you

Dear God:

I lift up Jamie to you this afternoon. May you step down from your thrown and give her the spirit she'll need to encourage Jerry. God just give her your strength in being the wife and mom that their home needs during this painful journey. May she grow through this life experience and may it be a key to being able to her in their future ministry. God speak to her heart even when she's not wanting you to. Show her glimpses of the bigger picture here and there as she learns to wait on you.

Thank you for having the girls be so young during this season.

Be with Jerry now Lord, we pray that you will pull him close to you and speak to his spirit. Give him a future hope for ministry in you.

We love you Lord....
We pray all these things in Jesus Name!


Scrumptious to Say the Least

Mmmmm, I just finished eating not one...but two donuts. It is funny how a donut can turn a "not so good" day into a better day. You should try it sometime--you're gonna love it.

Class of 2008

I am so proud of my husband!! Jerry graduated with a Master's Degree from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.
Jerry-the future is open wide and I am excited to be on this journey with you. I love you!

Sunday/Monday Blahs

Ever since I was a kid, a blah mood/depression hit right about every week on Sunday afternoon and carried into Monday. . . and twenty years later, life isn't much different.

Calm Down--Yes, I Now Have a Blog

Ok, my page was all set up and it took me a long time, only to have Jerry ask "what is it" referring to the picture I put on the top of the, I changed it.

Now what do I do with this whole blog thing?

I guess you will see some of my daily life, feelings, and emotions, all of which are a rare occurrence for me to share. Wish me luck...
