I am always looking for quick and tasty breakfast ideas that will satiate my appetite and fit my current way of eating—high healthy fat, moderate protein, low carb—which has done wonders for lowering my triglycerides and liver enzymes. So today I tried a recipe shared by Kristie Honeycutt Sullivan that she calls Faux-gurt. If you eat…

For someone who has gotten into a cooking s.l.u.m.p, the discovery of this wonderful magazine has been a summer life-saver! My sister gave my other sister a copy of it, and that sister showed it to me when I visited my mom in the spring. I spied it in the airport newsstand when flying home….and…

I haven’t posted anything here in weeks, because I’ve been working feverishly on building and designing a website that is due to go live on Monday!  As you can see, I did manage to make a trip to the pumpkin patch, where I got a little carried away and ended up bringing home 10 [yes,…

    Praise God – I am always excited to find another sister-in-Christ who is ready and willing to share her faith. Thank you for being bold by sharing – it’s planting seeds and encouraging the body to do the same!

It’s been a really quiet around here after the whirl of last week, when we had to leave our home for 2 nights while it was being tented for termites.  I packed 10 large boxes of items that I didn’t want to be subjected to the poisonous gases used to kill the termites and left…

    I can relate……I have had that screaming feeling the past 3 years – ever since my grandaughter moved back top Centralia to finish out college as there was a lot of home sickness back there and she couldn’t deal with it. It has SLOWLY gotten better but I definitely know the feeling!ReplyCancel

      Ah Angie….
      surrender is key….my flesh doesn’t even know how to genuinely start to….and the agony of not knowing how to is awful.
      dying to self is truly a slow and painful process, but it is worth the JOY that is to come!
      I’m always reminded of the caterpillar emerging from the cocoon and the necessity of the fluid being squeezed out of his wings through his struggle…no one can help him without killing him….it’s a process that he must undergo in order to live to fly.
      Thanks for stopping in and sharing your heart!ReplyCancel

    When I read your journal I feel like we are at the table together sharing our hearts!! I so relate to you Debi! So wonderful to have the Savior in my life to be my only consistency!!! He constantly reminds me how immeasurable his love is!!! Trying to get a grip on that!! I am so glad that “He will perfect that which concerns me!”ReplyCancel

      Hi Gayla…
      “so glad He will perfect that which concerns me” YES
      struggle is good, I know….it’s just so painful and I’m far too impatient!
      love you girl…ReplyCancel

    Hello, its been awhile. Sorry to hear that the termites arrived-uninvited as always. A quick update –my sister is beginning chemo that will last till Nov. Right now she is clear , praise God. I burn up the ‘pray-air’ waves keeping God’s line busy for a cure. We are celebrating MY Father’s birthday this Sat. w/ a surprise get together at church that my brother and sister’s families will be able to attend along w/ some of their church and social friends. If you go on my facebook page and look at my profile pics , you will see our family dress-up day at the beach. We got plenty of looks from the neighbors but the laughter was great medicine .
    We pray for and think of all of you when we remember our friends. Please don’t ever stop writing your posts, your gift of expressing your life in light of God’s touch is such a calming and soothing influence and reminder to me to be still and listen.
    ——with love as children in Christ, Tom and JoanReplyCancel

      Tom….
      I’ve been thinking about your sister. So glad to hear that she is clear as of now. As I remember her, I will pray for her as she undergoes chemo. I will have to check out the photos….somehow missed them when you posted them, I guess. Have a wonderful day celebrating your father 🙂 Say “hi” to Joan.ReplyCancel

        you are too much! Isn’t it wonderful to have a good belly laugh?ReplyCancel

  • I thought I had lost you forever after you worked on my lovely blog design. I kept going to your old blog. Your new place is lovely. I’m so glad I found you! And I still LOVE my blog design. 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Debi

      Elizabeth!
      I lurk at your spot once in a while…honestly, I have kind of been out of the cloud for awhile, and am slowly working my way back in!
      I’m glad you are still loving your design. If you ever want to switch it up……I’m here 🙂ReplyCancel
