We have had very little snow this winter. If you live in a four-season climate you know that snow makes winter bearable. A covering of snow softens the starkness of the landscape, like a blanket wrapped around the world offering a chilly but welcome comfort. Being without snow has made the starkness of the landscape […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
This Christmas, I attended the best Christmas party ever. It really didn’t look like anything interesting beyond a nice get-together to begin with. We were invited to our friends’ home, Dan & Karen. Karen loves to host, Dan loves to cook so they’re a formidable combination. At first, John & I thought the party would be small; […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
First: I know it’s very “on trend” to make gifts these days. I’m no “hipster” or “fashionista;” I’d be considered a “poser” and can only look with fondness on the days I was known as “cool.” Though I’ve often been sick, I don’t think I’m “sick” in the way I often hear that word get […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
In the past two weeks the phrase “Who IS Sarah Anderson?” has become a symbol for the amazing provision of God that happens in a mysterious, awesome, wonder-filled way. It may be a clunky as a mantra, but when I say it, I return to those feelings and am stopped short yet again by God’s […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
A few weeks ago I visited a local optician for new contact lenses. In the past year I’ve had a lot of trouble with my contact lenses. I spent a lot of time (and money) last spring trying to get my eye issues sorted out. Well, improvements were made, but blurriness and irritation continued. So […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
21So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
Shortly I’ll be sitting in the optometrist’s chair with one of those vision testing gizmos perched on my nose. My vision has never been good (that I’m aware of) but in the last year or so it’s been very bad. Gummy eyes from allergies, my first ever astigmatism, and it is, I’m afraid to say, probably time […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Today as I was walking Roxie in the park, an attractive older lady walked by. I had no time for more than a brief “hello” as I reigned in Roxie and started speaking commands to her: “Leave it! Yes, yes, yes, Good Dog!” I continued on my way and followed the same routine on the […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
It’s hard to believe I haven’t really done a post on knitting yet. And at the same time, it’s not one of those things that just automatically leads to me thinking about how God is present in my life. Mostly when I knit I’m just letting my mind relax, not thinking or at least thinking in a […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
I’ve just completed submitting two job applications. I find the process of looking for a job really nerve wracking. There is so little human interaction in the process of looking for working any more! I feel as though I am feeding my resume into a machine, hoping it has the right combinations of holes punched […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
