The Savory Secret of Spring: Mudbugs

post308pic1aWhen these little beauties decide it is time to crawl out into the sunshine of spring they have no idea they are about to get swooped into the nets of fishermen, and wind up being the main attraction at a crawfish boil. And yet, here they are. Are you up for a tasty treat of steamed creek creatures?

In all seriousness, I wonder just how hungry the person was who first decided he, or she, would eat one of these little delights. How hungry would you have to be? The name alone is a bit continue here

Clean Eating

It’s January 3, how’s that healthy eating plan working for you?

Why do we do this? Every. Single. Year. We keep reading here

Papa’s New Golf Cart

Brian’s new toy arrived just in time for our sons and grandsons to have a blast driving it around the neighborhood last week. It is the perfect vehicle for scooting here and there, hauling kids with wet towels to and from the pool, and simple joy rides.

Of course, the grandsons both had a turn driving it, but the big boys had the most fun with it. Since the golf cart had to stay on our neighborhood streets, we always knew they were never too far away. There was only so far they could go.

The physical golf cart came with limitations, and I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to suggest that we, as Christians, put similar limitations on our continue reading here

Family Recipes

So much is lost when a family member or loved one passes away. Voices. Love. Comfort. Familiarity. Routine. Wisdom . Stories. And, yes, even recipes.

In the face of this coming loss, Becky started a Face Book page where she is uploading favorite family recipes. When Becky visits with her continue reading here

Finding My Way Around

post251pic1This is ridiculously embarrassing, but last week (after living in Texas for over two years) I got lost coming home from Target! I made one wrong turn and I had no idea where I was. It’s not like I haven’t been to Target a few times since moving here, it’s that I don’t keep reading here

Lights On for The Crucible

blog229pic2_edited-1Listen up, Christians, there are some things we need to learn about preparing our children, our leaders, and ourselves for the spiritual battles we will inevitably face and the United States Marine Corps is a really good teacher!

You may recall that I wrote about my sister’s son, Zach, leaving for boot camp last summer. Well, the next big event on his agenda is The Crucible. After watching a WGN video depicting the final events of The Crucible (watch it here) I have to say, I am praying for my nephew, and his parents, like never before!

Behind the dark sleep-deprived eyes of these young Marines one can see continue here

Getting To Know God

Are. You. Kidding. Me?

Seriously, I know squirrels will find seeds, and I know birdfeeders are a great place to find them; but this birdfeeder — I thought for sure this seed cage was out of reach! Honestly, look where it is hanging!

It’s twelve feet off the ground, up a concrete wall, and find more here
