Other Christian Books that I (Mentally or Actually) SHARPIE-OUT their Titles and Rename

I’m a little worried that my previous post might be discouraging to people who title books (is there a term of art for that?) and/or to the incredibly gifted men and women who make graphic designs that I can only DREAM of being able to create in Heaven one day. (I, being the most graphically-challenged human being on the planet.) I …

What does it mean to believe in Christ?

Ella started Q61 of the Children’s Catechism last week: “What does it mean to believe in Christ?” The correct answer? “ To trust in Christ alone for my salvation.” But Ella kept saying variations on, “To trust in MYSELF ALONE for my salvation.” (Um. Nope.) “To trust in ELLA ALONE for my salvation.” (Wow. Not even close.) She eventually got …

Oh, Heidi-O! This totally reminded me of your family’s “Grey Poupon” fun! I laughed so hard …

I laughed so hard at this video. What joy! What fun! Heidi-O? This TOTALLY reminded me of when you pulled our car up to your parents’ (and brothers’?) car in college, rolled down the window and said, “Pardon me? Would you have some Grey Poupon?” And they DID!! You guys handed MUSTARD to one another right there at the intersection. H.Y.S.T.E.R.I.C.A.L. I …

Was this REALLY 25 years ago? Amazing!

If you LOVED “The Michael Jordan Years” of the Bulls, you will LOVE this video. I don’t really care about sports but I still remember this game as though it were yesterday. I think I watched this at Dr. James Lambrecht & Cindy’s home babysitting when “Paully” (now and adult!) was just a baby:

Doing One Wise Thing. NOT Doing One Enslaving Thing. And Looking for a Way to Serve …

Not being phlegmatic by any stretch of the definition, my “up” days can be great, but my “down” days are really a drag. Like this morning. For no reason and for good reason, I feel sad, scared, defeated, annoyed, and just plain BLECH. The pull to avoid my duties (and all relationships, including my relationship with God) was strong. I …

I Never Saw This Coming

Fred and Sophia have been working for months on a fiddle/tin whistle duet entitled, “Skyeman’s Jig.” They debuted it at our church’s Variety Show this past Saturday and things were going OK until the last minute or so, when Ella decided to rush the stage and dance to their music (just as she has done in our home hundreds of …

Cracks Me Up Every Time

I’ve watched this video a hundred times and I laugh out loud every time:

Should’ve seen that coming …

Tonight as we snuggled and exchanged kisses, Ella and I had the following discussion: “Do you remember, Mom, the time when you were kissing my cheeks and then I went to Daddy and said my tummy hurt and he checked my temperature and I had a fever over a hundred!? He gave me medicine to help me feel better.” “Yes,” …

“The Lion Sleeps Tonight” Radio Station Has Wooed Me In & I’ve Joined Pandora …

There is so much about 21st technology that I just don’t get. For example, I completely lost my “app” thingy on my iPhone for weeks. I couldn’t buy apps or update apps or do anything at all with apps and I really had no idea why. But finally, with a little magical searching on the interweb, I figured it out …
