Cannot wait to get big bear hugs from Will (the hippy) and from Case.
Praying for blessings on your last day in Peru boys.
Praying also for safety and a pleasant flight home.
Then...in a few weeks we will welcome Thor home, seen here with one of our favorite people in the world. Caleb Henderson. Camp Blue Haven has blessed this boy so much this summer.
So, we are very ready to go somewhere like this and have hours to talk about the adventures of the summer. Something so wonderful about the prospect of all members of our little family under one roof having lots of time to reflect and talk and laugh and enjoy each other's company.
God You are good.
I thank you ahead of time!
Hey friends! Good to be back and hope to be more consistent blogging from now on. My grandmother-ing schedule is a little different this semester and will give me more big chunks of time to return to some things I have let go and visit some things I would like to learn and do.
By the way, to my heart's delight we just got back from a delightful trip to the ocean or the "big water" as our granddaughter calls it. I will blog about that soon.
In the last week I have heard two lessons on the same scripture and feel very convicted that God is highlighting something I need to work on and ponder. I have read this verse numerous times in the past but two different people talked this week about examining what it actually means to deny yourself for God.
Matthew 16:24-2624 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.25 For whoever would save his lifewill lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake wil…
Hey friends! Several people have asked that I share this water kefir recipe lately so here is an updated post about making kefir. Questions are welcome.
Good morning! I just finished a batch of Water Kefir and thought I would share the goodness! You can buy Water Kefir grains at most health food stores in the refrigerated section.
Follow the directions on how to hydrate your grains. It is easy! Recipe and kefir health benefits are listed at the end of this blog post:
It takes 3 days to make a batch of water kefir.
Start with a large glass jar and spring water...
Keep your kefir in the fridge in between batches or just start another batch immediately. Mix 2 cups of water and 2 tab. of sugar well and then put kefir grains in and store in fridge. Use coffee filter on the top so that they can breathe and grow.
Stir the sugar into the spring water and stir until the water looks clear using only a wooden spoon.
Add kefir grains to the sugar water...
Then add organic raisins or apricots.
I kind of want to gush about how awesome this wonderful human is in the pic above. Last Sunday marked our 30th year of being married to each other. It's hard to put into words what being by each other's side through these years with all the ups and downs and fun and hard things has meant to me. He is unflinchingly positive and without reserve or shame a committed Jesus follower and lover of God. He works so very hard for our little family and is the person cheering us all on and encouraging us. His favorite thing in life is to help people succeed in life, in work, relationships and with God.
He is one of the best fathers in this world and his boys love and respect him. He inspires me to be healthy and less lazy and he has done SO many more loads of laundry and folding than I have in these 30 years. He loves the sun and sand between his toes. He will sit and watch Hallmark movies with me. He is a lover of breakfast foods especially for supper. He loves to exercise. He is a p…
