Life

Life is happening and I just have no time to keep up on a blog (in case you haven’t noticed the last 8-10 months!) My time is full with my amazing family and my beautiful growing children!

So until further notice, I am only going to put our weekly menu plan up on cookdayclub.com (since we all have to eat anyways, this part of blogging works right now!) and there will be no blog posts on this site.

Thank you sweet friends for following our journey to our precious babies, and for our amazing grandparents who always want to hear the latest on the grandkids – that will have to happen through skype and precious visits! :)

2013 Proverbs 31 translation

A translation of Proverbs 31:10-31 for 2013

It is so hard to find a good wife! When you find her, men…treat her as a precious jewel…because she is one!

A husband can completely trust a wife like this…he never has reason to regret the trust he has placed in her. She doesn’t nag at him and doesn’t keep a list of his mistakes he has to hold against him later.

She is a great home manager; she uses her skills and talents to truly make it home sweet home. She enjoys making the home special for all who live there. She is like a treasure hunter  & bargain finder when she is finding things to prepare her home.

She knows that the kids like cold pizza for breakfast and has allowed them to eat that when she really thinks they should be eating pancakes or eggs...
