Good Friday – So Thankful!

My church had their Maundy Thursday service last night, where we reflect on the Last Supper, the Betrayal, and the Crucifixion.  This is one of my favorite services of the year – it’s very poignant and meaningful.  The joy of Easter truly is that much sweeter when you first observe the heartbreak of the Crucifixion.

Like New Again {Answered Prayers}

Ahhhh, I’m feeling VERY refreshed this week! I had some good “mommy time” over the weekend, which worked wonders on my spirit. However, on Monday I was kind of….well, shall we just say….monstrous?

Snow, Snow, and MORE Snow!

This is probably one of the craziest winters that we’ve had…..ever! We live in CT. We’re used to getting fairly big snow storms, but not one on top of another like we’ve been getting this year. I heard on the weather station that in the month of January we had more snow than we normally […]
