Church Baby Love

What's better than a church potluck and business meeting? Holding your friend's baby! What a sweet little guy.

Good for Them

My guys are so faithful. They go for walks every day. Good for the dog. And good for them.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; Psalm 1:1 ESV

Signs of Life

I wasn't expecting buds so soon. But we are still in January and we have signs of life. Can't wait to see what it looks like in the spring.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12 ESV

Memories of Dad

I appreciate my sister's work scanning old photos. What a treasure!

I love this photo of my dad and his ventriloquist doll, Hong Kong Harry.
Update: This was actually Taiwan Tommy. Got my dummies confused.

And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 2 Timothy 2:24 ESV

Lasting Legacy

Today would have been my dad's 79th birthday. I thank God for the father I had and the time we had with him. We miss him dearly.

Pictured: My mom shared a photo of my Dad's Bible with his notes, a lasting legacy.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. Psalm 139:16 ESV

Taco Tuesday Love

Maybe we should start a tradition. Have Taco Tuesdays. Like tonight's pork tacos with homemade salsa. And tangy cabbage salad, made with organic cabbage of course.

Decisions Ahead

Decisions, decisions! Our youngest is applying to colleges and thinking about what's next. I know she will be ready. Not sure about me.

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Psalm 23:3 ESV

Break in the Rain

It was nice to have a break in the rain today. Perfect for a play date with our neighbor's dog.

Pictured: Our daughter captured this moment of me petting two dogs at once.

Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14 ESV

Perspectives Alumni

When I went to the preview event this summer, I didn't know what I was in for. But now I am a Perspectives on the World Christian Movement graduate! I learned a lot in the 15 weeks. I hope my husband can take the class the next time it is offered in our area.

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns!" 1 Chronicles 16:31 ESV

Harbor Church Life Groups Represented

See if you can find me in this picture from last Sunday at Harbor Church in Olympia.

Hint: I was representing our Shelton Life Group. Standing on the far left.

Game Show Help

If you follow my blog closely, you might have known the answer to a Jeopardy question last week. What does the V stand for in VB6 by Mark Bittman? Vegan!

I'm not vegan, but I want to add more healthy recipes to my repertoire. If nothing else, the tangy cabbage salad recipe is a winner.

Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it. Proverbs 15:17 ESV

Right Where I Left it

I was off my game this morning. First, I dropped my bowl of oatmeal and granola and broke the bowl. Then I got to Olympia and realized I had my BSF bag but not my purse. Which means no ID or money. But there was nothing I had to buy.

All's well that ends well. And I will pay more attention in the mornings!

Pictured: Thankfully my purse was hanging right where I left it.

"Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34 ESV

Container Update

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Mark the repurposed containers with duct tape. But the tape wears off. Plus I had too many random containers and lids.

So I ditched them all. I'm going with glass jars and a set of Rubbermaid®. Works much better.
