REFORMATION!

Anniversaries. They come in all shapes and sizes. We celebrate the anniversary of our births…AKA birthdays…we celebrate wedding anniversaries…the anniversary of the day we met our significant other…our first date…our first fight…the day we graduated from college…we mark the anniversary of the deaths of loved ones. Anniversaries are important to us. Anniversaries mark the passing of time. They make us stop and remember. Well, we made it. We’ve spent six […]

New Doors

A couple of years ago, Jeff and I were in the market for a new front door. We had been systematically sprucing up the house, and evidently the front door was next on our list. Now, the front door we had was a beautiful door. It was mostly beveled glass and dark oak. It really was a nice front door. Question: If it was so great, why did we change […]

Sticky Doors

Well, we have just a couple of weeks left. Y’all hanging in there? Everyday in my house, I can feel—rather than hear the after-effects of my daughter’s bathroom door. The upper right-hand corner sticks up against the frame of the door jam. It’s annoying. Eventually, my husband and I will get tired of our daughter’s bellyaching and slamming door, and we (actually, he) will remove the door, sand down the […]

Old Doors

I have a confession…no, it’s not time for another Confession of a Terrible Stay Home Mom…although it has been a while since I’ve done one of those. I have to confess that when the idea came to me for this little project about the Reformation, I honestly thought it was going to be much, much easier. I’m a bit of a history buff, and church history is right up my […]

Broken Doors

So, years ago, I was a frequent visitor to a retreat center deep in the heart of the Texas hill country. This center was used for scrapbooking retreats, ladies’ retreats, basically anything you could dream up…they could host your event. One hundred-fifty acres of sprawling Texas landscape with quaint houses that might have belonged to someone’s grandmother dotted the property. I loved that place. One of the houses was home […]

Closed Doors

Closed Doors. Have you ever come upon one? I have. People have often told me, “When one door closes, God opens a window.” Gag. I don’t know about y’all, but I am neither a cat burglar, nor am I a super-stealth ninja…I don’t often feel the need to climb through windows. I just want to walk through an open door…a WIDE OPEN door. However, life is not usually that easy; […]

Kid Friendly

So, the other day my sister decided to FaceTime me while our mother spoon fed my new niece bananas for the first time. It was quite an amusing site. Kamilla was not exactly sure what to do with the slimy, mushy substance being pushed into her mouth. Truth be told, most of the bananas oozed right back out and onto her many chins…this kid doesn’t miss too many meals. Watching […]

A Whole New World

How many of you read that title, and are now seeing (and singing) Aladdin on his flying carpet? You’re welcome. Actually, today’s rant has really has nothing to do with Aladdin and Jasmine, per say, but I do want to get into a world that was unavailable to me until recently.  Many of you know that I struggle with my age.  I have yet another birthday coming up…gasp…the world continues […]

Do You LIKE Me?

Right now, I’m sitting in a quiet house. This almost never happens.  As a matter of fact, the silence is so heavy that it is actually pressing in on my ears and making them hum.  Not even the dogs are moving.  It’s eerie. So, I did what any normal person in this situation would do…I reached for my phone. Over the past few days, the noise level in my house […]
