  2. Food Talk Five Phrases That Should Be Banished For Our Food Talk - We are food bloggers. We get it.

  3. all is quiet Prayer for the Week June 29 – All Quiet - Here I sit.  It’s 2:00 on Monday, well past my morning deadline to post our Monday prayer.  I want to tell you have something wonderful to share with you.  But all is quiet.  I’ve felt this quiet for weeks now.  I told Daja I just don’t have anything to say.  It’s not that life is […]

Not enough time for the full emotional breakdown I felt lay right under the surface. In that brief five minute span I poured out my soul to Jesus. When I got home I went and sat on our well and the tears just […]
  7. Coming Dawn Prayer for the Week Jun 1 – Just Say No To Crazy - Well that’s what I’ve had to do today!  How about you? I just don’t understand why Mondays arrive with such venom, but it seems to be a universal truth.  Somehow everything goes sideways on Monday.  The only thing that brings me comfort is the knowing that I’m not alone.  I had to laugh when a […]
  8. pentecost1 Prayer for the Week May 25 – Pentecost for Now - When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were.
