Lately

I guess I haven't posted much of what I've been up to lately, so I thought I would share...

I've been portraying the "Comic Host" at VBS this week and it has been a blast! I've been a Kermit, gotten a pie in the face and worn lots of fun costumes. Tonight will be another fun night of being less me and someone more crazy! VBS has been about love - epic love to be exact. I have enjoyed the lessons I've been learning each night as I work on the skits. Real love is tough and hard to show. Real love is putting others needs before I our own. Real love is being nice to and praying for our enemies, even when they aren't nice to us!


Mary has been doing really well. Shes been kinda defiant lately, but I chalk it up to her age. She loves her daddy so much its crazy! She loves me too, at least when he isn't available or she wants to cuddle in the bed. On July Fourth she spent a lot of time with her two friends. She had a blast even if she had to take more breaks!

I've been reading a lot lately. And then reading more. I (re)discovered the joy of used book stores this past weekend. I love to read, but sometimes it takes a really good book to make me fall back in love. I hope that I can go to the bookstore this weekend and find what I am looking for. 

I had a really stressful day this week. Because of VBS I got to be with some of my best friends and I noticed as I was standing next to one of them, their presence made my stress seem to dissipate. It was a wonderful feeling. I hope that everyone has a friend like that!

 

I dressed up like a cow this morning to get a free CHIKIN biscuit and it was so worth it!

What have you been up to lately?

  1. VBS is always tiring, but always fun and a wonderful time of sharing God's love with the young ones. Praying you will be spiritually and physically refreshed. Our VBS is coming up at the end of the month. My girls are looking forward to it.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Thanks Ladies! This year at VBS was actually really great. We only had it three nights and then a big party on Saturday. It was definitely my most favorite VBS schedule ever!

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
