blessings 6

At ten weeks pregnant, we found out last week during a routine appointment that God had chosen to take our baby home.  My heart is grieving and aching for this child I will never hold.  This is the fourth child we’ve lost, yet the pain is the same and maybe even greater this time. I […]



reflections 1

As I turn the last page of 2010 today, and reflect upon all that has been written this year, I am once again enthralled by God’s handiwork in my life. This has been one of the most difficult years for our family, yet through the difficulties God has lovingly drawn us closer to his comforting […]

Ruston Taylor McCormick joined our clan on February 6, 2010 at 12:12 am. He weighed 8 lbs 5 oz and was 21 inches long. What a joy it is to hold this precious baby in my arms, and what a miracle that God would give me a 5th blessing to rear for Him. I am […]



Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last blogged. We’ve been busy with adjustments in our new life and roles at East Side Baptist Church in Asheboro, NC.

I Need Thee Every Hour 1

So often in my prayers, I find myself drawn to the words to the beloved hymn, “I Need Thee Every Hour”. I am frequently overwhelmed as I try to discipline, nurture, home-school, feed, and all the other tasks that are required in a day of caring for 4 young children. I am daily in need […]

training for the olympics

My heart was filled with pride as I watched our American Olympians stand and receive the many gold medals that they were awarded during the 2008 games. I enjoyed hearing the individual stories of dedication as the athletes prepared for the goal that had been set. It is interesting that the athletes didn’t begin a […]

cherish the moment 2

Read my book, rub my back, Mommy, listen to my prayer. Let me sit in your lap, Daddy, fly me through the air. Throw a ball, make a snack, Can we go to the park? Tuck me in; hold me close I’m afraid of the dark. Sing a song, play a game,Swing me high in […]


apples of gold 1

How many times have you had someone remind you of something you had told them a week, month or even year ago? How often do you remember something that someone told you in a time of need or perhaps a sharp word uttered in haste, yet piercing to your soul. Are you the parent of […]
