FaithLeaps1I‘ve been blogging since before I knew what it was. Let’s face it, I’m a writer. Writers write. In school, when the teachers were giving the rest of the class a minimum number of pages for reports and essays, they always gave me a maximum number. I’ve also always known how to write for the audience, in a way that relates to them personally.
I’ve had some kind of website every since we had internet available out here in the boonies. Mr. Amazing is a hardware man and I’m a software girl. When we married, we both had a bit of programming knowledge. Granted that was DOS & Basic. Am I dating myself? I was young for the knowledge… {grin} More

Mr. Amazing and me. Note the picture of Jesus laughing in the background.

Mr. Amazing and me. Note the picture of Jesus laughing in the background over my shoulder.

I asked Mr. Amazing to give me a Bible verse and he gave me Matthew 23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!”  I have to admit this was not what I had in mind but I am determined to exercise my brain by following through.

Valentines & Vampires

dracula bookHave I got your curiosity?  <he,he>  Valentine’s Day is over and we survived it again.  We don’t really “celebrate” it since we found out the pagan background.  Nasty.  I did try to take the opportunity to concentrate on our “Loving one another.”  We prepared a nice meal and watched something romantic… no, actually I think we watched a few episodes of Wild Wild West.  We bought them for the 13 year old’s birthday.  He loves trains and spy stuff and the 10 year old loves cowboys.  What could be better for two imaginative boys?  The whole family is enjoying them.  Now that we are wrapping up the “Love Month”, I’ve been trying to catch up on some reading.  This includes the oldest’s blog.  I get in such a hurry to get business done and get off the computer that I neglect keeping up with her blog posts.  I know, terrible mom.  Forgive me.  I’ll make amends now.  Last month she and her next sister and I read Dracula together.  It horrifies my friends when I say it’s one of my favorite books.  I’ll let Kathryn explain why it is.  Here’s her review of the book: More

readinginlaceMy New-Year’s resolutions are slipping, but I’m not giving up!  One of my resolutions was to post more often.  I think my goal was twice a week.  I only posted 5 times last month on this blog, but I was a lot more active on the others, so I think it levels out.  Another goal was to make new friends in the internet “Social Community” world.  I could go off on a whole rabbit trail here with the word “Community”, but I’ll try not to.  An idea was introduced to me last month to make friends in these social networks.  I have made several wonderful friends online through the years.  It just seems like an “accident” when it happens, which I know better.  There are no accidents with God.  It just had never really occurred to me to seek out and pursue friendships online.  Since I’ve changed my focus, the Lord has put several amazing women in my path.  I’m learning a lot.  I suppose that in itself is a success!
