Daily Prompt: A Friend in Need

Daily Prompt: A Friend in Need.

My closest friend is my husband.  He is my rock, my sounding board.  He is a blessing in my life and our children’s.

It shouldn’t amaze me how God works, but it always does.  How He moves things into place for two people to meet.  I almost took a job at another school the year Scott and the girls moved into my old school district.  I had had the interviews with the principal and the school board, had accepted the job, when Mr. Prugh called me about an aide position at Green Forest.  I love my old school and naturally was excited to go to work there.  Once there, I met the girls.  They were sweet little things (still are…but I might be biased now, lol) and I met their dad.  He came on a field trip and we talked the entire time.

Three years later (and one year of marriage), I can definitely say he is my closest friend.  Thank you Lord for bringing us together.


Lazy Days with my Family

I love those days when everyone is home.  We don’t have big plans to go anywhere.  Just stay at home and enjoy ourvtime together.   Those days are rare as our girls get older and my husband is usually on the road.  I cherish my weekends with my family.

To My Daughters


To my girls,

I want you three to know how much I love you.  When I said yes to your dad, I said yes to you girls also.  I am so happy that you chose to call me mom.  It was something I had thought would never happen.  But I met your dad and all of that changed. One is a lonely number and five is a wonderful number for us.

Girls, this world is crazy and has even crazier definitions of what and who you should be, how you should look, and just go with the flow.  I want you to know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14), created exactly how God planned.  The world will tell you what it thinks is beautiful.  The Word tells us what He knows is beautiful.  Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious (1 Peter 3:3-4).

I cannot wait to see His plans for your lives work out.  Thank you for asking me to be a part of that journey.
