Just when I thought I was doing something right!

Have you ever had one of those days….
You know the ones, where you have all the best intentions in the world, BUT forces just  seem to be working against you.

That was my day….. 


Our kids had been mowing lawn the last few times it was mowed.  They don’t drive as close to things as my husband would like.   In my husband’s defense, he’s right, they don’t mow close enough.  In my kids’ defense, they are scared to cut off the flowers in the flower garden.   So with REALLY good intentions I mowed REAL close trimming the weeds near our flower garden under the clothesline.  It just so happened at that very moment, a gust of wind came up and one of the clothespins holding myhusband’s shirt lost it’s hold and…you guess it, his favorite work shirt was sucked up under the lawn mower and TA-DA…fabric scraps! 

I went and told my husband I had mowed his favorite shirt…he said good thing I wasn’t in it….

So much for good intentions.

Road Closed – Yes, CLOSED!


The road in front of our house is closed..yes, CLOSED!

We have had a flood of traffic past our house with people turning around at the end of our driveway and even driving up into our yard to turn around ever since our road was closed two days ago so that the bridge could be replaced.  It is driving our dog NUTS!! 

My husband was out cutting alfalfa the first day and witnessed several people moving the road block signs and crossing the bridge!  At that time, the bridge was still there but supports and the structure had been compromised. 

I am convinced that some people need to see for themselves before they believe.  Some people, like those moving the road block sign, not only need to see but test things before they believe.  Are you that way?  I know sometimes I am in both my personal and spiritual life.   

When my teens tell me they aren’t doing something dangerous when they go out…should I believe them when I can’t see for myself?  When my daughter says, yes mom, I did clean my room.  Do I believe her or do I need to go check for myself? 

Sometimes, like in the case of my daughter cleaning her room, we need to check up on things.  But sometimes we just need to have faith and believe…but what about those times we get burned and what we believed isn’t true.   I believe those times come about in our life so we can learn to forgive. 

I for one, strive to be a believer.

For those of you who believe without seeing, this is for you….


For those of you who need to see things before you believe, these are for you….



For those of you who need to try things before you believe them….


I wouldn’t recommend it!

Here’s to all of you who believe without seeing!
