No Rest Sunday

Not a typical weekend at our house.

After 18 years, it was time to replace the pool liner.

We started on Saturday morning, and working as a family. The new liner, in the 24′ pool began to be filled by 5:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Sunday morning, waking to sore bodies and a job to finish,


Yep, my job was cut and bagging up the old liner as husband and son worked on replacement of rails etc…

With that said, I missed Church today, and it sure was nice to take time to rest on the couch and be encouraged by reading post from my neighbors here at WordPress!

Thank you FearlessinJesusChrist

I sure enjoyed your Sunday Devotional on Eagles!

My family and I turned a “job” we were not looking forward to doing, into an opportunity to work together, laugh together, and thank the LORD for the cool weekend in southern Oklahoma! 

Oh, and Abby did manage to get her rest! 


Installing tip: don’t forget to load up on the spray when doing a job like this!

What is a Haikus Poem? – a Hug in Elementary


Monday night I “Googled” the definition of Haikus.

What a surprise to find the answer (literally)

staring me right in the face, (hanging on the wall!)

when I went to school yesterday!


In honor of my new friend and very

Talented neighbor, Susan Michaels of Light Room

Her Blog daily astounds with

“Words, Light, and Life” in Haiku style poetry.

Susan, I think you will agree,

these Third Grade students

Wrote some fine Haiku poetry!


Here’s hoping you each enjoy a

Haiku style “hug in Elementary”






Great job Third Grade students!!

Converging Paths

“I remember my tender beginnings,

The naivety of my youth;

But now I see with wise, old eyes

The guise of hidden truth:

My steps were not as uncertain

as I had deemed them be–

Planned before my days were numbered

then delivered unto me.

Yet oftentimes I have wondered:

The mistakes that I have made

Could surely not be included

Upon the path for me was laid.

But then I am reminded

Of a man from long ago

Who also had a destined path

He walked in joy and woe.

He never showed a doubt

Of the precarious steps ahead

But trusted with His life

The planned path He was to tread.

Yet I am just a simple man,

Not a man of grand destiny;

So how can I be expected

To live like He who lived so free?

Then wondrously I am reasoned

With the resolution of His story,

How the path laid out before Him

Healed my broken path to glory.

For the path that He sojourned

Was leading to His death;

An execution by way of proxy–

My mistakes He would bereft.

He straightened out the crookedness

Of my wayward, wandering feet

Restoring the path I was delivered;

The path, by Him, now made complete.

So wisdom has taught my heart to trust

The path of Him who came before

And of His conquest over death–

The hope of glory forevermore.

He had a plan before my conception

To repair this desolate path of mine;

Thoughtfully, mending the broken road I made

By causing our paths to intertwine.”
