Ok, thank you so much for all the great entries for the 5 Spiritual Solutions book! We have ten winners (picked randomly from random.org this morning before I had to run and couldn’t grab a second to post ’til now…): 1) Tawnie JI love the Eyres!! I use to watch them after school. Thanks for…

Vision Walk

Every once in a while it hits me hard that we have a daughter who may some day not be able to see the beauty of life that surrounds her. Like when we go into a dim movie theater and she stops dead in her tracks because she cannot see anything. Or when she trips…

spring wrap-up

(Just had to put that picture first…love that Lu.)I’m calling this my spring-wrap up because I guess spring is pretty much over when the weather forecast on my phone has nothing but big, yellow suns stretching across each week with temperatures reaching near and above 100 degrees.
