These past few weeks have been busy for me but the next 2 months will be even more so. My 5th child is graduating from homeschool and my eldest daughter is getting married. *sigh* I am excited for them both but there also comes a mixed bag of emotions.
As my daughter prepares to be mistress of her own home with her future husband it has made me mindful of something that I’ve always wanted to do for my children: prepare a cookbook of the special recipes I’ve used over the years.
Now, I’m not a great cook. But we do have special foods that the children love and recipes that they favor. So I’m going to pull together a short book (there are not that many) of my recipes. For my children I’m going to print it out and put in a binder with sheet protectors. But I will also make it available here as a free download. It’s one piece of HOME that my children can take with them when they leave.
GREAT! Now I’m crying as I think about them leaving!!
What are the special legacies you want to leave for your children?

I’ve been meditating on prayer these past 11 years (I know, I’m a slow thinker!) and how we so often pray weak, faithless and lifeless prayers. I see 2 different trends in prayer in the church today.

How many times do we hear ourselves saying, “I can’t do anything. All I can do is pray?” I remember a day about 22 years ago when the Lord slapped me upside the head when I said that!
