Hello and Merry Christmas!

Hello and Merry Christmas!

Well hello there dear blog readers.  I’ve missed you.  A lot.  I love to write but I also love my family and they keep me busy.  I’m hoping to write more … be looking for it because I’m feeling kind of  “bloggy”.  I taught Sunday School this morning and I told our class that we love Jesus but we lost Him. (More about that in the links below). He is gone, can’t find Him anywhere. When I looked up what…

We lost Jesus.

We lost Jesus.

February 16 and I have just put up the last of our Christmas.  As in … the very last. Late, I know. It was really just one thing.  Everything else has been put away for a long time … except for our nativity scene.   You see, we lost Jesus. Somewhere I had read (pintrest maybe?) where families put baby Jesus away when they set out their nativites.  On Christmas Day they put him in the manger … symbolizing that…

For all the breakfast planners out there …

For all the breakfast planners out there …

Sometime last year I began asking my friend Elizabeth about her “meal planning”.  I’d text her on Sunday nights and ask her what “our” meal plan was for the week. The first time she answered me I was SHOCKED because her meal plan included breakfast. And y’all … I have never given a second thought to what we were having for breakfast before I stumbled into the kitchen any given morning to make something while my people were dressing. And…

And then they drove up in a Baylor car

And then they drove up in a Baylor car

For the first time in years we made it to the early service for Easter.  That is quite a feat for us.  Not lying.  The music was beautiful and it was a packed house. Kind of like the movie theater the night before. Saturday night we went to see “God’s Not Dead” but it was completely sold out. So we went home and got ready for the next day where we would celebrate the original “God’s Not Dead” story which…

It was kind of like having facebook … except they didn’t have facebook.

It was kind of like having facebook … except they didn’t have facebook.

One of my favorite parts of the Easter story … well you know, besides the part where Jesus died for our sins … is that He first appeared to Mary. When Jesus ROSE FROM THE DEAD he could have made himself known to anyone.  He could have stood up on top of that door of the tomb, which was the “rock that was rolled away” and yelled for anyone to hear …. “I’m alive!  What my Father said was true!!!!”….

Hands down my favorite place in New York City

Hands down my favorite place in New York City

I love New York. I love the horns honking and the tall buildings and the theater and the people and really just all of it.   I especially love Central Park because who wouldn’t?  Bill and I have gone running there, rowed around in a row boat, ridden the carousel, eaten breakfast at Tavern on the Green and had lunch from a food vendor (y’all it was SO good) We’ve watched the ice skaters, ridden in the horse drawn carriages,…

An Empty Nativity

An Empty Nativity

Today I am packing up Christmas.  It’s funny how pretty the red and green looks everywhere before Christmas and afterwards it seems to lose it’s appeal.  (Is that just me?)  I love the lights and sometimes find that after the tree and the garland comes down and the ornaments are put away the house looks kind of empty.  But then I do like the crispness of January decor.When I began to pack up our nativity, I realized we never found…
