In the belly of a fish.

We read Jonah's prayer this week in my Friday morning women's small group: "Then Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish's belly. And he said, ' I called by reason of mine affliction unto Jehovah, And he answered me; Out of the belly of Sheol cried I, And thou heardest my voice.For … Continue reading In the belly of a fish.

Joyful, Joyful

This was from a few weekends ago at Garden of the Gods. My husband snapped it from his phone and just showed me this week. It was the last really nice day before the cold and snow set in. It was a day that we woke up together as a family. It was a day … Continue reading Joyful, Joyful

Practical Magic.

Yesterday, I went to church. I've been a sporadic church goer for years, and I'm trying to make it a point to be more consistent about it. Not because I think going to church makes me a better Christian or is the only way to be a better or even decent person. There are many … Continue reading A Season for Everything.
