Older Mom
It’s 8:30pm and my 3 year-old boy is finally in bed. I think. My 5 year-old daughter is already sleeping in her room. My day typically starts with this sweet little boy face and arms wrapped around Barney coming to our bed at about 6am. Some days he’s not totally in bed until 9pm. I’ll …

Square Pegs and Pigtails This month I was blessed to write about my sweet almost six year-old girl as part of the “30 days of love from a mother’s heart” series at KayleneYoder.com]. My daughter is a quirky kid. There, I’ve said it. Despite my feeble attempts to make her fit comfortably within society’s norms, …

  Romans 7:18 For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.  I keep thinking of that Spike Lee film “Do the Right Thing”. The title, that is. I have struggled to do the right thing today.  While doing good things today, I have still struggled …
Jerusalem
    “This week I dreamt that I was in Israel in the midst of missiles and I saw them coming right to where I was. What a horrible feeling it was. It felt very real. It felt like I was really there and a voice said: these are signs of the end times, behold …

  The sonographer was Cuban. He was one of the few health care professionals that ever dared attempt to pronounce my very long Portuguese last name when calling me from the waiting room and the only one who ever pronounced it perfectly. By the time I had the ultrasound of my kidneys, the stone I …
