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; […]

A Baby Changes Everything

Is anyone else busy?  ‘Tis the season for even more insane schedules and jam-packed days.  I honestly cannot believe that the Internet is still up and running with all of the last minute BUY NOW clicks that I have been purchasing with the hope of having gifts delivered by Christmas. Christmas. It’s coming…ready or not…Christmas will be here in three days. Christmas or not…my youngest sister is doing her part […]

The Eye Patch

Hey now…it’s a Thoughtful Thursday…on a TUESDAY!!! So, Thanksgiving is in TWO DAYS.  I hope you’re ready for it.  I think I am.  In fact, at our house, we are having a Merry Thanksmas.  Yesterday afternoon I managed to put the finishing touches on my Christmas decorations, save one. I have one Nativity scene that still needs to go up. The last remaining hold-out on my decorations is a lovely […]

Lessons From Leander

I grew up just outside of Austin, Texas.  I now live in Houston, Texas, and my name is Dallas…feel free to insert your own joke here ____.  I figure that I just about have most of the major metroplexes covered.  Why am I telling you this? I grew up just outside of Austin. If I told you I lived in a little-bitty town called Leander, Texas…there are only five people […]

Crushin’ It!

Yesterday I took Ethan to have his haircut.   Through the course of the appointment, Susan began telling me about her latest adorable addition: Her new grandbaby.  We began to reminisce about all of the years she has been cutting my hair and watching my children grow.  However, she doesn’t often get to physically see my kiddos any more.  My time at the salon is mine! But, Ethan needed an emergency […]
