Spring: “Filled & Fried”

“We were both so filled at Easter, and also kinda fried,” is what my friend Christina said the other day when we were catching up via text message. (Hopefully she doesn’t mind me quoting her.) She is also a pastor’s wife, but you don’t have to have that role to feel that way. Everyone I… Read More Spring: “Filled & Fried”

It Was Too Cold To Blog

 See what I mean?  You really can’t do anything in temps like that. The winter of 2015 was a deep freeze like we’ve never experienced before. And then my blog disappeared probably also due to the arctic temps. I had to rescue it from cyberspace by approving my domain name via Robert’s near-obsolete chilidogk AOL… Read More It Was Too Cold To Blog

Matthew’s Account: My Underlines

Two months. In seven years, I don’t think I’ve gone two months without writing here on my blog. And there’s lots to tell ~ which is part of why I haven’t written. Too much activity to sit for a while and put the words down. Lots of urgent things taking first place over the important… Read More Matthew’s Account: My Underlines

Celebrating Together {Resurrection Sunday!}

I’m a day late, but for some reason Blogger wasn’t working last night, and I couldn’t log in to my blog. So, I sat in a chair drinking tea, watching the final episode of “The Bible” with Robert and the kids, and being thankful for the wonderful season of Lent and the great Resurrection Day… Read More Celebrating Together {Resurrection Sunday!}

The In Between Day: Death and Expectation {Lent Day #47}

 It is so full and so crazy, but I do so love this week. The Seder on Wednesday night was ~ “so beautiful.”  That’s what everyone kept saying, anyway, and I had to agree.  The beautiful part goes far beyond the table settings and candles to the number of people gathered to remember the sin,… Read More The In Between Day: Death and Expectation {Lent Day #47}

Gluten Free Friday ~ Deviled Eggs {Lent Day #46}

Happy Good Friday!  I have had a busy day already, and now am heading out the door to take Kory to the airport.  He’ll be visiting two colleges there that he’s been accepted to, but has never seen.

Thanks and Bread and Betrayal {Lent day #45}

So, this is one of the pieces of artwork I got to see while slowly strolling through the Boston Museum of Fine Arts last week.  I think the religious artwork is partly why I’m drawn to the European Art section.  Some of them are sort of ridiculous and based on unlikely legend, but some of… Read More Thanks and Bread and Betrayal {Lent day #45}

Bitter Roots, Sweet Trees {Lent Day #44}

Whole Foods Cashier: {surprised} “Is that horseradish?  That’s a lot of horseradish!” Me: {laughing} “Yes, it IS horseradish.  And it IS a lot! Whole Foods Cashier: “Do you mind if I ask what you are going to do with all of that horseradish?” I quickly explained that I was making 15 Seder Plates for a… Read More Bitter Roots, Sweet Trees {Lent Day #44}

Tender Tears {Lent Day #42}

The questions was “What turn of event in your life has the Lord used to perfect you as a worshiper of Him?” Around the tables small groups of women began to answer… “I lost my job last week, but I start a new one tomorrow.” “I had a baby a year ago.” “He broke our… Read More Tender Tears {Lent Day #42}
