honduras 2011-breaking chains homeless ministry

By |May 19th, 2011|

Sometimes we are called to step completely out of our comfort zones.

Sometimes we’re called to stay there, and in staying, amazing things take place.

You’ll probably remember I mentioned that while in Honduras, we would be working with Breaking Chains Homeless Ministry.

 

And this lovely […]

honduras 2011-building houses

By |May 18th, 2011|

It’s been a down couple of days for us in this house…we are resting as much as possible and Matt (poor thing) has some kind of bites all over him and is quite miserable.  The kids are literally hanging on us, and little has gotten done.

I wouldn’t have it any other […]

i’m back…and a furniture makeover

By |May 16th, 2011|

Hey there, friends.

I’m back in the states, and I have to tell you, it’s a bittersweet day.  I am so happy to be home with my snuggly bunnies, and yet, I find myself staring out the window quite often, thinking of the people in Honduras.

I couldn’t wait to catch […]

hello from honduras

Hello everybody!!!

I’m SO happy to be able to pop in and say hi.  I don’t have long to visit, so I thought I would simply pull from my journal.

The time is passing by so quickly.  It’s like watching the stock numbers tick by, ever so consistently. 

Today we rested.

Authentic

It’s late.

I’m awake.  I usually am this time of night.  But I’m usually laughing with Matt or with one of you.

Tonight, I don’t know, I was just searching.  Searching for Truth in this world.  Searching for a small, but resonating glimpse of It in the flesh.  Maybe it’s the preparations for Honduras.  Maybe it’s that […]

The Best Craft We’ll Ever Create

By |February 22nd, 2011|

It seems as if baring my soul to you guys comes naturally these days.

Some time ago, I told you about our work in Honduras.

I shared with you about the people, their poverty, and yet, their filled hearts.

Matt has been to Honduras 12 times in his life and we now lead groups whenever we can to […]

Random Thoughts

By |February 24th, 2010|

I’m sitting here on the couch in my living room that I’ve fallen in love with again, staring into the sweet eyes of my little girl.  My mind is preoccupied….with what, I’m not sure.  Do you ever get that feeling?  Weighed down…just kind of heavy?Don’t get me wrong; I know when I feel this way, […]

My Straying Steps….

By |February 10th, 2010|

Most of you probably know (or are realizing) how much I love to write.  It’s been a passion of mine since I was a little girl.  I remember the first story I ever wrote was about a beautiful mermaid that lived in a golden pond.  How fun….I can’t wait to share my joy of reading […]

Just one of those days….

By |January 28th, 2010|

You know the ones.The ones where you just want to crawl back into bed and start over.It just seemed like 5:30 am came way too early today.  Matt’s traveling again and it also seems like the kids save their crazy sickness for the time when it’s just good old mom to fend for herself.  Little […]

Fresh Year, Fresh Start-Parenting

By |January 22nd, 2010|

I’ve been reading the posts of Fresh Year, Fresh Start at Run the Earth, Watch the Sky for several weeks now, but this is the first time I’ve linked up with them.  This week was all about parenting….I love those days when I’m rested enough, patient enough, purposeful enough.  The truth is that’s not always reality.  […]
