May 2008

I just finished this book.


That’s all i can say. A friend gave this to my mom to read. She told her is was the most disturbing book she had ever read. My mom passed it to my grandmother and she said it was interesting and controversial book she had ever read. My grandmother gave it to me and i say…wow, insightful and i certainly had some double-takes. Now I’m passing it along to my mother. She wanted me to read it before her. I’m anxious to hear her thoughts!

Have YOU read it? What are your thoughts? Do share!


Stella, the oldest, will be at her grandmothers so it will just be the younger two!

Because this cute girl Lucy comes to visit! Her dad plays bridge at my house each week, and Lucy comes along to hang out with me. If i can’t have a puppy, i am more than happy to babysit one once a week! I took her outside to play in the apple orchard…she’s so cute!

“My Desire”

You want to be real
You want to be empty inside
You want to be someone laying down your pride
You want to be someone someday
Then lay it all down before the King
You want to be whole
You want to have purpose inside
You want to have virtue and purify your mind
You want to be set free today then lay it all down before the

This is my desire
This is my return
This is my desire to be used by you

You want to be real
You want to be emptied inside
And I know my heart is to feel you near
And I know my life
It’s to do your will

It’s to do your will


All my life I have seen where you’ve taken me
Beyond all I have hoped and there’s more left unseen
There’s not much I can do to repay all you’ve done so I give my hands to use

-Jeremy Camp


I was talking to a great friend over the weekend. She was telling me that her pastor has been preaching about “breakthroughs”…people having breakthroughs in their lives, and that he feels 2008 will be a year of breakthroughs for many people. She told me that i’ve been on her mind…a lot. She’s been praying for me…this will be a year of breakthroughs for me. She feels it. I hope for it. She’s a true prayer warrior. And she is doing her very best to help make that happen. She’s a beautiful friend and i am grateful for her relationship….and also reminded that though i may still be waiting for my breakthrough, i have a strong support circle all around me. God is good.
