the requisite mother’s day post

That day of celebration for those women who have been given the responsibility of raising a tiny human has come upon us once again.

point for me…finally painted that wardrobe

Do you have a project that has loomed over you for ages? I have had one. That’s right…I finally got around to painting my df girl’s wardrobe!

worthy is the lamb

Do you ever really think about the enormity of that day at Golgotha where the King of Glory laid down His life on the cross more than two thousand years ago? Sadly, I often take this day for granted.  I go about my business, doing my own thing, scarcely giving a thought to that great sacrifice.…… Continue reading worthy is the lamb
