And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. -Jeremiah 18:4
I know that often times we get caught up in things we believe we ought to be doing, the way we should look, or where we should be in life. Sometimes we wonder if we are too damaged or flawed to be of use anymore or to be able to do what we need to do. Maybe we have things in our past that we are not proud of, things that have chipped away at our self confidence, esteem and maybe even our reputation. Continue reading “God uses cracked pots”
Well, as you may know, I am a mom to 9. I still have 6 at home so there are plenty of mouths to feed. So how do you feed 6 kids without going broke? Is it possible to do it healthy and cheap? Continue reading “Feeding an army on a budget, part 1”
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
What is a peacemaker?
I’m sure you’ve probably read this verse before as I know I have read it. I came across again it a few days ago and began to wonder ‘What exactly is a peacemaker?’ I looked up the definition and this is what I found: Continue reading “It’s hard being a peacemaker”

I think all of us have had ‘one of those days’. Well, it’s a Monday, and it’s a Monday after a time change so I have a strong feeling it will be one of those days every day for the next week or so.

What does living the country life really mean?
I know I think of farms with cows and chickens.
I think of lazy mornings sitting on the back porch sipping my hot coffee while wondering
what to do to pass the endless amount of free time I have.
I think of working in a garden
with lots of beautiful plants springing forth.

Recently I was doing a study on being a helpmeet. I have done this same study before when I was married and I just needed something to occupy my mind.
