This is the seventh year that I am celebrating Christmas after NOT celebrating at all for four years. And this year, I celebrate the birth of Christ with all of my heart.
I wasn’t planning on blogging today…I was taking a break. But then there I was… Russ had taken Ezra away…to I don’t know where, and I didn’t really care. I had been up since 6 am, and had already done quite a bit of cleaning and got most of the Christmas presents wrapped. Being alone … [Read more…]
Peaceful morning. Ezra woke up around 0745. I stumbled out of the bedroom to brew coffee. While the water was heating, I found my Bible. Buried in a bag in the corner of the kitchen. After yesterday, I wanted to start the day off right. I set the Bible on the top of the dishwasher, … [Read more…]
Note: If you have not read my post from earlier this week, Embracing Grace: My PWOC Story, please do so before reading this post. It really gives some more insight and background into what PWOC is and what it has come to mean to me. I think I have finally been able to process the multitude … [Read more…]

It’s been 27 days since I first deactivated my Facebook account. Honestly, they have flown by.
I texted a friend of mine a few pictures of my ball gown. There was a photograph which I didn’t like because I felt that it accentuated some parts of my figure that need some work… although the words I used in my comment to her were “back fat.” She didn’t let me get away … [Read more…]
Russ and I have been discussing some concerns with our website for quite some time. We want to be able to share with family and friends, especially those who aren’t on Facebook, without bringing ourselves unnecessary danger by having too much information out there on the internet. Thus, we have renamed our website, taking off … [Read more…]
I feel the need to blog this morning, and I have no idea why. Right now I find myself entirely frustrated with life. I am in no mood to encourage anyone, but I guess God wants me to write this anyway. I was awoken shortly before seven this morning (after being up until after midnight … [Read more…]
