Global Bridegroom Fast…again

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in general | 0 comments

The November Global Bridegroom Fast* started today. I haven’t posted about the GBF for a while but I just wanted give a brief encourage to you wherever you are on your own fasting journey. The Lord sees your desire to love Him with all that you are. Wherever you are in your journey, His mercy is new today for you and His grace is available to you to love Him! For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. (Galatians 5:5) It is only by the Holy Spirit in us that we are able to fight the good fight and love God and others when so much wars against us. We...

Triathlon 4 Orphans Part II

Posted by on Jul 9, 2011 in general | 6 comments

This morning, at about 10:05, I almost got a perfect shot of Dave crossing the finish line of the Minneapolis Triathlon 2011… I had a beautifully clear shot, turned away for a minute, and all of a sudden the announcement, “Dave Horsman, from Bloomington,” – 10 minutes before I expected it! – had me scurrying to compose a shot of the finish line, and the lovely gentlemen on the righthand side of the frame. Bummer. Oh well. I guess the camera mounted on the ladder there, was getting a photo of each athlete as they finished. Hopefully we can get one of Dave....

Triathlon 4 Orphans

Have you heard about the Triathlon 4 Orphans? Most likely you have. In the off chance, though, that you have not, here’s the scoop: My husband, Dave, is preparing to do a triathlon on July 9th! Monumental, right? But not only is he doing a triathlon, he’s raising money for Olive Tree Adoptions, a ministry of our church, while doing a triatlon. Awesome! A Triathlon 4 Orphans. For a few years now, ever since attending The Call in August 2008, my and Dave’s hearts have been moved towards adoption. We don’t know how or when but we’ve been certain that adoption is in...

Tune in Next Week…

Posted by on Jul 19, 2010 in general | 0 comments

So…now that my hundreds of photos are finally off of my camera and onto my new Mac, I can’t find them.  I mean, I can find them – I can look at them – but I can’t figure out how to import or export them. Booo!  (I’m booing myself, by the way, and not my new computer.) And actually, I probably could figure it out, but it’s 9:30 pm, and putzing around on a computer when I’m tired is not something that I enjoy doing. Anyhow, summer continues to be lovely.  The boys just finished up two weeks of swimming lessons.  They rocked it and I got some...

Slow Motion

Ah…summer, how I love thee.  Freckles.  The lingering smell of sunscreen. Towels drying on the patio.  Eating outside.  Sun-bleached hair.  (You should see Noah’s!)  The yummy, sleepy feeling that envelopes you at the end of a day spent entirely outside. Mmmmm. So, it’s just dawned on me that as a homeschooling mom, my perspective on summer vacation will be entirely different from that of a mom whose children go to school.  Right now, I really do feel like I’m on vacation.  It’s been so lovely to have noting to do but be a housekeeper and mummy and not a...

What’s this?  A rare photograph of the blog author herself!  And, yes, I got my hair chopped off.  It’s been way too long since I’ve done this.  I love it!
