Insomnia Will Do This To You

Yesterday I found out about Regretsy. Oh. My. Word. Too funny for words. Go and laugh. (some graphic/adult content, so beware if the kiddies are around...)

Happy is the heart that still feels pain
Darkness drains and light will come again
Swing open your chest and let it in
Just let the love, love, love begin

Depression and the Church

Found this interesting discussion going on at Carlos Whittaker's blog about the Christian Church and depression. What do you think?

A New Beginning

Today we are welcoming a new doggie into our life. Her name is Brandi. She was in need of a home, and after having Marlee, we are more aware of the needs of animals and are wanting to share our life with them. The kids are especially excited. (though I think my husband and I are pretty excited about her as well) Isn't she beautiful?

A philosophy I want to live by

Let us touch the dying,
the poor,
the lonely
and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received
and let us not be ashamed or slow
to do the humble work....
if you can't feed a hundred people,
then feed just one...

Things I'll Miss

Remember the times when I said that one of the things I think I'll miss when my kids grow up is their notes? Yeah, well, tonite I found this doozie laying on the laundry room floor. I am not sure if Jacob was the recipient, or if he was signing it. "Thanks a lot. Jerk!" I guess we've all been there a time or two... (notice the crying little heart! poor kid.)
