Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful blog readers out there.  🙂  I appreciate your encouragement throughout the year, and pray that God fills you with lots of love throughout this holiday season.  This picture fills me with much nostalgia….Christmas 2000, when Joshua was 6 and our dog Fritzi was only 3.  Enjoy each other.  Love, Lisa

Hiding Baby

Our dog Finnegan has a baby.  A little raccoon toy that he has loved since he first came to our home at 7 weeks old.  He loves to cuddle with it, and when he’s not with Baby, he feels compelled to hide him in a safe location until Finnegan decide to play with him again.  He’ll walk around and around the house, carrying Baby in his mouth, looking for just the perfect spot.

Here’s where I found Baby yesterday.


And here’s Finnegan, on the opposite couch, resting but still close by.


It reminds me of a verse in the Bible which has really comforted me lately.  “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.” ~Psalm 91:4

Hidden, safe, protected, always watched over by my Father in heaven.  Blessings, Lisa

You Are You


“Today you are you!

That is truer than true!

There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

~The wonderful Dr. Seuss

I’m glad you’re you, and that I’m me, and that we get to share this whole crazy, awesome, mixed-up, exciting life together.  And I’m even more glad that God holds us together while we do.    🙂  Slainte, Lisa
