Despite the fact that neither one of us were looking for a relationship when we met, within a day of meeting Gregg in person, he and I were talking about marriage. Forget the fact that I was recently separated from my husband of nearly 10 years, forget the fact that it was 3 short months after 9/11 and Gregg was in a Special Forces unit about to deploy, forget the fact that he lived 354 miles away from my house — we KNEW we would be married.
Now that fall is here, Facebook and Pinterest are alive with “easy two ingredient” recipes for all the holiday baking that start with a cake mix then you add a can of pumpkin or something similar and…BAM!…dessert.
I would like to point out, though, that it isn’t two ingredients. It is, at best, about 20 ingredients, many of which are harmful and TOXIC to your body.
I’ll break down a Duncan Hines Yellow Cake mix for you:Pin It
I love the simplicity of natural home births and the lack of medical intervention on labor. Despite my high risk pregnancies that resulted in emergency c-sections and long NICU stays, I wish that was our societal norm now. I’m not a fan of epidurals or the clinical-ness of giving birth in a hospital.Pin It
It’s awful to think that there are teenagers today who were too young to remember 9/11/01, and yet we’re STILL at war.
God help this generation growing up where war has been their entire life, and yet where this nation is so apathetic about it that no one who isn’t directly affected even remembers it.
7000 troops dead, over 32,000 wounded, and the cost of war on soldiers and families that impacts homes in ways we can’t even comprehend. How about we “remember” this date by remembering we’re at war and then demanding an end to it?Pin It
Gregg and I prayed about it and decided to bring her and her son into our home indefinitely. We’ve told her that this is her home, that we don’t expect anything from her in return, and that they are part of our family now. She came here Wednesday night – which is the first time we met. There are a few things that require some prayer about it:
So, last Monday, half of my tree fell. The ground was just saturated with rain and there must be something attacking it, because half of it just fell over. Right onto a friend’s car. Some of the apples were close to being ready. Some were moderately ready. And some were good pectin making apples.
I have really been trying to feed my family better. We’ve recently switched to mainly organic foods, when we can afford them. My question comes in an upcoming trip to visit family. We’ll be there around 3 nights and they don’t really eat the way we do. When you travel, how do you eat? Do you just eat what the host fixes, regardless of what’s in it? Do you take food and possibly offend the host? I’m stuck in the fact that I really don’t want to mess up our newly established eating habits, but I also don’t want to offend anybody either.

Those of you who have followed this blog and read Gregg’s Creation Posts won’t be surprised to learn that we are lifetime members of The Creation Museum. But, it’s been a busy year with my book writing and releasing and signings, and we haven’t been there since Christmas for their Christmas Town exhibit. So deciding to go there was an easy decision.Pin It
