Historical Religious Fiction

Reading today...

This is a collection of novellas about important women in the lineage of Jesus. They overcame great struggles in their time that still pertain to our times especially those of women. I am hoping I enjoy it...

Modest and feeling beautiful



I was rushed this morning  and grabed random pieces of clothing. My colors are all over the place. I am wearing a blue skirt that has a lace pattern on it. It is from a thrift store. You can just make out some purple leggings underneath. I have a brown tank top on that happens to be a maternity one. It is long and was a favorite during my last two pregnancies. The yellow shirt is sleeveless with some patterning on it and a little fringe. It is from Target. The orange sweater also came from Target. I think everything turned out alright. It was a windy day and started raining later but I was totally comfortable and felt at peace. I know that sounds strange but during one of my jobs today I had to enter a lot of stores and offices and interact with a lot of men and women. I didn't feel dressed up. I would actually wear all of this at home curled with the kids watching a movie. I felt like I was being seen for me not parts of me. Yes, I am 44 and by no means a model or one to turn any one's eye but my husband's but I feel my outer beauty reflects my soul's beauty as a child of God. People look at my face and eyes. They listen to me. It may just be my perception that they do but I do know for a fact they aren't looking at how snug my clothes are and that my attitude  and self confidence shines so I then am positive in my interactions.


Colossians 3:2
Set your affections on things above , not on things of this earth.

Snow day in November...


This rarely happens. At least school wasn't closed and work wasn't affected. Yes, a big deal when it snows this little in Alabama....

Singing...

The little kids enrolled in school sang for the church and school families today. Etta showed so much enthusiasm. She even sang during the service the hymns I didn't know she knew. I guess she inherited the music gene. She didn't get it from me.... Even the guest preacher commented on her enthusiasm :) ....

Broccoli now!

If only Etta had said that first....

I really want my kids to learn how to behave in public and around strangers. To do that you have to practice. After school minus Eli I took the little kids on errands. One of these was to Walmart. We were in line a really long time. The kids saw toys put on their level (on purpose) that I couldn't get them. Etta was determined though since it is her birthday month. I shpuld just get it early was her logic. That was not going to work...
She had picked out raw broccoli earlier when we were getting fruits and vegetables. I finally asked her to calm down and she could have her broccoli. I should have tried that first. I knew she was a fan I just didn't think it was the magic word...

She wouldn't even shate with Eliot...

Run Evan!!!!

Evan did great at his cross country track meet for Christian schools across the state. He ran his 2 miles in 17 minutes. I ran long distance on the track team in high school. I am so proud of him. He has been participating more in church activities too. It helps that church and school are the same place :) ....
