On My Heart

I'm just going to jump into blogging again.

I saw this on FB and shared it there but wanted to write more about here I am.

So often I get asked why I'm not in a ministry at church. I use to worry about what people thought about it. I don't anymore. I know I'm right where God wants me. I know that my ministry right now is my family. My three guys are oh so busy-work, church board, scouting, sports, etc. Someone (me) has to keep things running at home so we don't feel fractured. I often see people who are so busy with all their commitments that they are disconnected from each other. I don't think that is what He means when he calls us to serve. We can all serve Him in some way. This is my way.

Long Time No See

A lot of life has been lived since my last post. Lately I feel like I've finally been coming back around to "me". I think part of me was lost for a little while. I'm still knitting and can't imagine ever not knitting. Our boys are growing and we are so proud of them. I've been making lots of blackberry desserts and canning blackberry jam. Now I've got lots of tomatoes to work up and green beans. Today I dyed my hair with henna. It's lovely, the color should deepen over the next few days. It was a messy process but gave me that little bit of red I needed. I'm hopeful I will get back into the swing of regular blogging but if not that's okay. This blog started out for me, a journal of my life. I would like to get back to putting life's little details down. Until next time.......

What's Consuming Me


That's all I want to do. It's what I've been doing in every spare moment and the not so spare moments as well. I'm fitting it in between 7th grade basketball games. That's the other thing I'm doing. Lots of driving these days and in between I knit.

Weird Dreams

I'm kind of known to have bizarre dreams. This morning I woke up having had one.

In the dream it was winter time and I was on my way out to take care of Butter and her pups. As I neared her kennel I could here deer in the woods to my left, I hurried into the kennel and shut the door. Immediately there were deer on the outside of the kennel pushing and shoving wanting food. I was uneasy and turned to find a deer in the kennel with me. I reached out to feed it and it clamped down on my hand. I screamed, "let go you're hurting me", then I woke up.

Weird, huh?
