Like A Tree

I’ve done a bit of raking up leaves this fall. Like, a TON of leaves. So. Many. Leaves. Anyway, as I meditatively rake and think deep thoughts, that’s sometimes when God gives me direction or inspiration. This week, as I noticed the small branches that had fallen to the ground, I asked myself… If IContinue reading "Like A Tree"

Fall Break

The kids had this week off of school, so I took some time off too. We’ve been looking for an opportunity to visit our friends in Coeur D’ Alene for a while and this was an excellent chance to do just that. We rented a great little cabin at Camp Coeur D’ Alene called Oakenshield’sContinue reading "Fall Break"

Cucumber Salad

I’m not entirely certain what to call this dish. It seems to align pretty well with what you’ll find if you search for Cucumber Salad or Pickled Cucumber Salad… but those names seem to be a little too grand for what actually just amounts to cucumbers and onions in vinegar water. However, this is oneContinue reading "Cucumber Salad"

Pre-Post Self Check

Our small group has been discussing screen time. Not the Apple product, but just how much our screens impact our lives. One topic that came up was social media and the reasons why we share things there. I was reminded of a list of questions I came up with last year. The idea is toContinue reading "Pre-Post Self Check"

Through A Mirror Dimly

It feels like it’s been ages, but we’ve begun meeting again with friends as a Life Group. We kicked things off with discussion about identity, based on a sermon by John Mark Comer.  I recently read his book, The Relentless Elimination of Hurry. SO. GOOD. Highly recommended read. Anyway, John led off his discussion onContinue reading "Through A Mirror Dimly"

Slave Or Subject

We’re often deceived into thinking that being subject to a king means to give up freedom and individuality. When I picture kings and subjects, I think mostly of movies where kings were rich and ruled with an iron fist and used poor peasants to do their bidding. That’s a filtered view though. It’s like thinkingContinue reading "Slave Or Subject"

Steam Boat Gulch

This weekend’s activities included sledding at Steam Boat Gulch. With us went one of our favorite families to adventure with… the McNeese crew. The skies were a beautiful blue with scattered puffy clouds and the sun was bright and warm. We had an excellent day with excellent friends. While we had a wonderful time, thereContinue reading "Steam Boat Gulch"
