A Tender Croatian Christmas

  We were never very traditional people by nature – until the day after Thanksgiving rolled around. That’s when our family carefully unpacked one tradition after another, savoring each one like a tender morsel. From decorating the whole yard and house to homemade peanut brittle.  From tree-decorating to caroling our neighbors.  From reading the Christmas story and reviewing the reason for the …

A Harvest of Faith

harvest

The oblong ice cream containers sit on my window sill.  Not very attractive, but then with all of the renovating going on around here, they sort of fit in with the “décor”.   The containers are filled with dirt and little green shoots are starting to show…the promise of some healthy lettuce and spinach come …

Harvest and Littles

There is something so magical about Autumn.  The trees are changing, the air smells different. Sure, as adults we know what all these changes mean, but for little kids these changes can be scary on a level. And that is why I feel this season is such a great opportunity to build memories for your …

I love Fall. The smell of cider and warm cinnamon sugar donuts, the colors of yellow, orange and the purple/brown found only in the changing colors of the red maple and in my neck of the woods the hot summer fades to crisp mornings–perfect for a hot cuppa.

Fall & Bringing in the Sheaves

I know I am not alone in my love of fall. I used to be a lover of the extreme seasons of summer and winter. Now, however, the more moderate tones of spring and fall are my favorites. I mean, what’s not to love about fall? The crispy, sunshiny mornings? The huge harvest moons? The …

Preparing for the Harvest

harvest

This time of year has become my favorite over the last couple years. The dark mornings and early nights tend to slow me down, which gives me more time to think, look back and plan for the upcoming year. Being a home school mom, I look at the year as Sept.-Aug. instead of Jan.-Dec. So, …

Relationships are a Ministry

MinistryBlessings

Relationships with My Kids Require Work Kids have always been a part of my life. From my little brothers, to babysitting, children’s church, choir and Awana, to my own little blessings. Something I’ve discovered about myself is that I have to work really hard in relationships with my own kids vs. someone else’s children. I …
