Perms and Soul Ties: The Men I Loved

Growing up in a small church meant I grew up with the same kids for most of my life. The young crushes on that one boy soon turned to disgust in high school. I mean, come on! Who would have a crush on him? oh.. me. Sunday school had started. We were in our Sunday best. Being in the 80’s…

Jesus wasn’t Kidding

I’ve been completely forgiven, that’s for sure. I’ve even come through all the shame of my sin too. Thank God. I’ve confessed it. Fought against it. Had girlfriends praying for me and helping me through some of my darkest days. And to be honest, even my husband knew the lure of temptation that, in past days, could have wrecked my…

I Opened It Cautiously

I read a book yesterday called Created to Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl. It’s about wives living to serve and love their husbands. I didn’t want to read this book because I think I do a pretty good job at loving JT, but I couldn’t get around the fact that, yes there are people who have been married…

The hit series “24” has swept the nation for years now and JT and I have never jumped on the broom…until this summer. For whatever reason, I got the hankerin’ to try watching it again. We tried a few years ago and was very turned off by the first few episodes. Everyone who’s any kind of Jack Bauer lover said,…

Old Man!

It’s strange to say that my sweet husband, Pastor JT, is 36 today. Poor fella, he’s on the down hill to 40, and then I guess he goes back up another hill to go downhill to 50. Thirty-six. I met him when we were 21. We thought we were so hot snot. So grown up and out on our own.…

Evidence that I’m No Longer a Newlywed

I was unloading the dishwasher when it struck me. I’m no longer a newlywed. Not that I didn’t already realize that, but it was the spoons that really confirmed my suspicion. My utensil holder looked like my moms. Allow me to explain. When you are a newlywed and you unpack all that glorious new utensils, there is a wave of…

I Love My Job

I mean really, where else can you do dishes and then eat a Symphony bar while reading The Twitter? Who else gets to teach their middle child to read while the oldest writes a story about a bunny rabbit who planted carrots and got cabbages instead? I find it quite fascinating that I can do “Ploga” and listen to Glenn…

And so it begins…

Thanks for taking my polls yesterday. If you haven’t, well, darn it, go do it. I need info! ahem Well, other than that, we’ve had an exciting weekend: 1—demolition of existing tile that has left my house with a thin layer of dust resting peacefully in it. 2–hubs workin’ like a mad man to get some of this tile down.…
