Any Soldier

Posted by Hallee on Nov 30, 2010 in Causes, Life

That year, for Christmas, he got an “Any Soldier” box. It was addressed to “any soldier who doesn’t have a living grandma.” It was filled with socks and treats and was from a grandma who thought that someone might need some grandma love.

Menu Monday 29 NOV 2010

Posted by Hallee on Nov 29, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 29th. As far as desserts go, My husband’s birthday is in 2 weeks. I’m going to prepare his birthday box, and include Heavenly Red Velvet Cake mini cupcakes and some Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies (not stuffed). In the meantime, our cookie jar is getting low, so I’ll probably make some whole wheat chocolate chip cookies (which I strangely don’t have a recipe up for and will rectify that soon!)

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 17 – His Relationships

My husband is a very social person. He can chat with strangers over any subject matter for hours and never bat an eye. He can work a room at a party or banquet and enjoy meeting new people, catching up with old acquaintances, and find something in common with just about anyone. But he has very few very close friends.

Natural Health: Cinnamon

Posted by Hallee on Nov 26, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Natural Health

For millenia, human beings have sought methods for healing and health holistically. It is only in the last century or so that we’ve really sought out lab-produced medicines. As wonderful and life-saving as prescription medication can be, in our focus on pharmaceuticals, we’ve lost a lot of knowledge about God provided health and healing properties that grow naturally.

Last year at this time, Gregg and I were saying that it would be the last Thanksgiving we would be apart. And here we are this year, apart, determined that this will be the last one. God has been gracious and an amazing provider in this time of economic hardship on our country, and we are thankful for the job he has, for the income that he has, and for the continued contracts that come his way while there is nothing much out there otherwise. So while a part of me wants to feel down in the dumps for missing him, I try very hard to stay thankful. Ephesians 5:20 says: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Pilgrims, Bible, Persecution and Thanksgiving

Posted by Hallee on Nov 23, 2010 in Christian Faith, homeschooling

If you don’t know the actual history behind the pilgrims and Thanksgiving, I found this chart here. I copied it verbatim and added nothing to it, nor took anything away from it. It is WONDERFUL and is full of other links.
