What I Learned Touched My Soul

I went to a wedding this weekend. The bride was truly beautiful. One of the passages they read was from Psalm 139. It really touched my heart, and I wanted to share with you how I was affected.  First of all take a look at the passage.   Psalm 139 (New King James Version) Psalm 139…

Kept…

The word for today is *kept*, and it is funny what came to my mind first – wait for it…That’s right! A kept woman. Now, I am not a kept woman in the purest sense.  Yet, my husband does provide for our every need. And, I do stay home with our precious daughter. But, when…

TROUBLE with a Capital T

Again it’s Thursday and I ‘m linking up with Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. I’ve chosen the first topic: 1.) Write about a time you got in BIG trouble as a kid. I have been planning to write about this topic all week. I have a great story in mind. But,  I must admit the Top 10…

Disappointment

Yesterday my husband forgot his wallet when he went to work. This was not the first time! Yesterday my husband forgot his lunch when he went to work. THIS is becoming a habit. So, the poor guy would have starved to death if me and little Ms. Lizzy-Jane hadn’t come to his rescue. So, when…

My Brother is in the Running for a New Bike and a SPECIAL BONUS!

My brother, Phillip Summers,  is a MAJOR bike lover. He rides his bike to work every day. He’s also ridden many long distance trips for fun. I think one of his favorite hobbies is collecting bikes. But, to his credit he has donated many bikes to people in need. So, I guess he doesn’t keep…

Play Date

The day started out rough. Lizzy-Jane kept crying every time I turned around. Sometimes she was hurt, but mostly she just doesn’t like people/ other tougher children getting up in her personal space. She is still an only child, and is used to spending an exorbitant amount of time alone with me.  Oh my! But, then one…

Top 10 for Daddy

I’m linking up with Mama Kat today. I chose prompt # 5:  List ten favorite things about one of your favorite people. As you can tell from the title, I’m choosing to write about my Daddy today. Now, I’m sure Chris will be a little disapointed that I didn’t choose him. He may even admit it. And,…

Beautiful Girl/Beautiful Gift

So, I’ve learned that I don’t check my mail very often. You see, we have recently moved from a house, where the mail box was right beside the front door attached to the house. Easy peasy! Now we live in an apartment where the mail box shack is about a quarter of a mile from…

The Adventures of Lizzy-Jane: Part 3

This weekend, after we worked on organizing the new clothes closet for our church, we went  to dinner with a couple of  friends. Chris decided he wanted to go to Ryan’s Steakhouse. My food was very disappointing, but the salad was good, and the company was good. And, the best part…Lizzy-Jane had her first chicken…

The Wisdom in a Baby’s Eyes

Have you ever looked at a baby or small child, and seen the knowledge of the world inside? I have, and it always shocks me, like looking into the eyes of a deer, all still and silent. I used to have a theory that when a baby is born an angel presses his finger against…

My First Car

I wish I had a picture of it. I’m sure you would love to see it. It was lovely. Sort of. It was blue! Well, it was also a Ford Taurus, but the primary prerequisite was that it be blue. Here is the story. I was turning 16, and though we weren’t rich by any…

You Will Be Missed!

Mrs. Betty Jo Piper Hutchens You have gone home to heaven now. I’m sure it will be great to see your beloved, and your son who went home before you. We will miss you. Here you are at my daughter’s first birthday party. You gave her a travel bag that we still use EVERY time…
