God’s Interruption

When we went to the cabin recently, we had planned on staying until Sunday. However, my mom had a very hard time sleeping, which meant that none of us got very good sleep for a couple of days. By the time Saturday afternoon came around, we decided it would be best to just head back […]

Between the Storms

After spending a couple of days in the serenity of the mountains at the cabin, it was time to head home. We didn’t get out early and when we were ready to start packing the car, it started raining. And lightning and thundering and pouring for a long time. Finally there was a lull in […]

Family Drive

Yesterday my mom said she was getting cabin fever and tired of being at home all the time. So, today my parents and I decided to go for a drive. We started by meandering through the foothills. We drove through the grounds of a church tucked back into the woods. The large property also included […]

Day Out

The other day, my dad and brother realized that the computer in the cabin wasn’t transmitting the data that it should be. So, this morning they decided to take a drive up there. They said that there were some cars in town, but the further out they went, the less they saw. They made it […]

4-Wheel Drive

It snowed a couple of days ago and my parents and I thought today would be a good day to go to the cabin. The sun had melted off quite a bit of the snow in the city and the roads were completely clear, so we figured the roads to the cabin would be fine. […]

$800 For a Chevy

This morning, my dad remembered that when he was very young, his mother would send him to the grocery store to pick up a few items. He felt like it was a huge responsibility. He and my mom remembered the prices of some items. My mom’s father owned a bakery and the doughnuts were $.30 […]

Sun Came Back

Today was the opposite of stay-in day. When I drove to the gym this morning, I turned a corner and the sun hit me right in the eyes. It had been a few days since I saw sunshine and it was a shock to my system. At the same time, it warmed my heart. Everyone […]

Quick Thinker

My brother-in-law unfortunately got in a car accident the other day. Luckily, he wasn’t badly injured, but the young woman who rear ended him left the scene in the ambulance. He came over yesterday and told us the story. He was driving home from work on the highway in stop and go traffic through a […]

A Wreck

Yesterday when we left the doctor’s office, we were all feeling quite good and upbeat from the encouraging words. It was late in the afternoon and the traffic was heavy, so I had to be very aware. As we came upon a particularly busy intersection, the light changed from green to yellow. There is always […]

New Permit Driver

As I was out driving around today, I saw ahead of me a minivan that had something written on the back window. It reminded me of when the youth used to decorate our car windows before heading off to Workcamp. Being curious, I changed lanes and got behind the van to see what it was. […]
