    He heard the pleas of a pregnant Mama who sorta felt like she was drowning in it all….

  • Co-parenting with God….

    On Thursday, February 10 th, 2005

    Today Darryl (dh) sat down for lunch today and shook his head. “Sows that are nearly due [to give birth] just don’t think normal.” He was referring to how he had to cajole, convince and bribe some very pregnant, very scared Mama Sows to new dwelling quarters. But as his rather pregnant wife, it was hard not to take his opinion of the thought processes of femal...

    The never-ending prayer……not just before our farm meals….

  • A Man of Few Words

    On Tuesday, February 08 th, 2005

    Our Kai ain’t talking much. A man of few words he is. At 29 months, he stands as the strong, silent type. Great blue eyes, though. He’s got one line down very well. It’s our favorite (well, we don’t have lots of options, do we? ~smile~) The older 4 children all beg him to belt it out with his signature gusto. (If you are only going to say one lin...

Education is a moving, stirring, a wrestling. An awakening of the spirit. It is a rustling, an unfurling from deep within. I don’t make it happen with a textbook, with a chalkboard outline, w...

  • May the Children Eat first……

    On Monday, January 31 st, 2005

    The mill runs every day in our house. Grinding kernels early in the dawn for steamy bowls of cream of wheat. And twice weekly it runs, so like the little Red Hen, I can grind the wheat and make the bread for all of the hungry little tummies that make their home here. I line up the loaf pans, tuck in a sheet of parchment paper, then cradle the soft dough into their wee beds, f...

  • It took awhile…..but I found “IT”

    On Tuesday, January 25 th, 2005

    So what is wrong with me? What do I keep looking for? I have so much right in this moment……. 5 children… blessings runneth over. Soft cheeks to kiss, warm little hands to pat my back, streams of jokes, funny little songs lilted over sketches, inventions readied for patents daily. Adoring Husband….one in a million. Offers to make dinner, gives me nigh...

    “Books change people’s lives. Blogs change people’s moments.” ~R.C. Sproul (for the rest of this article on Mr. Sproul’s mental meanderings on blogging, see: ) I have been ruminating on R.C. Sproul’s thought. And these are mine: Books are words. So are blogs. Lives are ...
