Karen Witemeyer

I love to find exceptional authors. If you are in need of a spiritual, romantic comedy; then pick up a Karen Witemeyer book.

I have actually laughed out loud at some of the passages in all of Karen Witemeyers' books. Imagine falling through a rotten step and not screaming for help but politely asking for it. Challenging someone to keep up with you in a calistenics routine. Hannah stands up for herself in this book and thinks of creative ways to get her business noticed and helps a new friend learn to like herself. She has learned to trust God to lead the way and take care of her. She also helps handsome JT open his eyes. Well worth reading.

We have all read about the Knights in Shining Armor. Waiting for that one person to sweep you off their feet. But, would you go chasing after the one that you "thought" was meant for you. The lady in this book did and was she surprised to discover that he was already married and had been toying with her affections. Tyring to figure a way out of the mess that she has gotten herself into, she relies on God and answers an ad in the paper.
The imagination this lady has is thrilling. I love the scene of clearing and cleaning the attic. Hilarious!! How you can fiercely protect a child that is not of your own blood. Astounding.

This one touched my heart in many ways. To realize how many different kinds of words it takes to have a conversation and not use words with the letter "s". Amazing.This fellow is not uneducated by any means, he is actually we read. Beautiful story. Easy to see that how when you keep your promise to God, he will keep his promise to you.

Early Morning Haircut

Wouldn't you know it. Today is picture day at school. Guess who needed a haircut? The Kindergarten. Guess who forgot to cut it last night. The Mom.

I was pleasantly surprised that he did not put up a fuss about having it cut at 6 o'clock in the morning. He looks SO much better, just in time for picture day.

I am going to have to purchase a new clipper set. I believe the ones that we have are worn out. Evidently they are pulling some of the hair and breaking it rather than cutting it. Every little bit he was cringing and saying, "Ow, ow, ow..." Well this must have been hilarious for a 5 month old baby to witness. She just kept laughing. Of course anything that her big brother does is funny to her.

What was funny to me was him telling her to stop laughing that it wasn't funny and then he got tickled at her.

What a way to start a morning!

A love of books

If anyone knows me at all, they know I LOVE to read. I love to read my bible, I love to read christian fiction, and I love to read to my children. I am forever visiting the in the Christian Fiction section at the library. Granted there are some authors I have yet to check out.

My beloved husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas! How excited was I!!! With the free preview books at Amazon, I have discovered a vast array of new authors that my library did not have. I have discovered intriguing books of Karen Witemeyer, Lorna Seilstad, Diana Taylor and many more.

As I get a moment, I will start reviewing the books that I have come to love and find great joy in.

Doing Better

The little lady did have a ear infection. Bless her heart.

I got her to the doctor on Friday with a temp of 101.7 and they confirmed my suspicions. Now if we could just get her to take the medicine! The little sugar bug will work every bit of the medicine out of her mouth. She has an uncanny knack for that. Mama's have their sneaky ways though for getting the needed medicine in to help their babies feel better.

Four-Wheelers in the Bible

We are learning the books of the Bible. Starting off with the first five. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. I remember that as a child I learned the books through a song. Heaven help me though I could not remember the tune. So I started searching the net and came across where you sing the books to the tune of the Ten Little Indians.

So... while riding in the truck, I was trying to teach him the first part of the song with those five books that he was supposed to learn. He was getting it! For some reason, he loves to say Deuteronomy. I think it is because it is harder to say and it just stuck with him. Too cute!

Anyhoo, back to the Four-Wheeler in the Bible. While going through the song, he stops me and asked in all seriousness, "Mom, where is the four-wheeler in the Bible. God did make the four-wheeler didn't he?" I just smiled and told him that "He sure did, it is called the Camel, and it was and is one of God's first four-wheelers." You should have seen his eyes.

Wonder what he told his friends at school the next day?

Long Night

Just when you think that your newborn baby is finished with the waking up in the middle of the night, think again. Bless her heart, either we are dealing with teething or an ear infection I am afraid. Fussy with a low grade fever. She must feel comforted by just being near someone, because the moment you put her down, oh boy! This brings back all of those sleepless nights of her brother when he was that age. I just pray to the Dear Lord that it is not an ear infection.

Hopefully tonight, we can both catch some zzzz's!!
