At Home in the Heartland

A slower life can be sweeter...

The days are so hot and humid right now. I open the door each morning, hoping to get a blast of cooler air. It hasn't happened yet, but I know fall is on its way. I'm ready.

Living a life of luxury over here with my pb&j (hold the j).

I will admit, I am offended when I read pleas to let God back into our schools.

God goes with me to school every day. I also ask Him to join my kids and my husband.

We four attend four different schools every day and He is there with us all. He is there in our choices, our actions and our words. He is there in our love.

I love because He loves me, regardless of whether or not religion is taught. I pray silently, my thanks and also my requests.

God is big enough to be in all of the schools.

God is there. Please don't let fear make you believe anything else. If you want Him there more, then please cover your school in prayer and ask others to do the same. Go there and take Him with you.

But please don't say He's not there. He is there.

Bee moved to a new bedroom this summer and the empty space in her old room was filled soon after with someone new. Not quite what I had in mind for "guests" in our new guestroom.

Church, lunch, hoops, movie.
A perfect Sunday.

My happy place...

It spanned almost the entire length of our little city this morning. 
God's promises calm my heart.
