We went “home” for Christmas (to LaQuinta, that is)

If you’ve followed the latest in the DuBois family, you know we sold our home this summer (rather quickly) and moved into the LaQuinta hotel for a month while trying to figure out what in the world we were doing.  We soon bought my grandmother’s RV trailer, and we’ve been living in it ever since.… Continue reading We went “home” for Christmas (to LaQuinta, that is)

Fear of Success (by Cody Hogden)

I know. I know. That sounds kind of crazy when our world is driven by success. Just do a quick Google search of the word "success" and you'll find over a million sites. 400,000 of those being books written on how to succeed. Some of our best quotes are about success or failure. Let no… Continue reading Fear of Success (by Cody Hogden)

How we end up playin’ with gators

I have mentioned we sold our home and moved into a hotel. We spent thirty days at LaQuinta and moved on to the next step in the path God’s purposed for us to take. While at the hotel, we had frequent visitors. Alligators. With a small lake behind our temporary home, and living near the… Continue reading How we end up playin’ with gators

Temple Ruins (right here in Texas, y’all)

A few weeks ago, Caleb shared a news story over breakfast. Mom, did you know the Houston Astrodome is falling apart? I was unaware of the Astrodome’s demise. The once-great Astrodome, known for years as the Eighth Wonder of the World, was home to the Houston Astros and the Oilers, playoff games at all levels, movie… Continue reading Temple Ruins (right here in Texas, y’all)

Sharing Sunday: Out to pasture

From the tenth chapter of the Book of John, our Pastor escorted us into an understanding of Jesus as our Shepherd.  The Good Shepherd. I am the good shepherd. I know My own sheep, and they know Me, as the Father knows Me, and I know the Father. I lay down My life for the sheep.  (John 10:14-15)… Continue reading Sharing Sunday: Out to pasture

With Google in my eyes, can I see God?

While browsing an enlightening blog, Connecting Dots to God, I learned of a plan from Google to create something quite interesting.  Have you heard about Project Glass?      I find this amazing.  Yet, I’m also troubled.  I am sure most of you are remarkably disciplined and are not tempted by technology. However, I am.  In fact,… Continue reading With Google in my eyes, can I see God?

Does God care if “church” is fun?

A group of Little Dribblers convened in my hotel room with Caleb this morning.  Having traveled seven hours from home for a basketball tournament, one child audibly realized he’d miss church tonight. I settled his concerns. We can have church here.  I’ll come up with something. One quick-thinking boy interjected with a plea, hoping to… Continue reading Does God care if “church” is fun?

Sharing Sunday: Freedom Finders

From the book of John, our pastor shared yesterday.  Jesus reveals truth. I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.  (John 8:12) The Pharisees continue to question Jesus. Jesus warns them. You are from below. I am from above.You are of… Continue reading Sharing Sunday: Freedom Finders

Breaking up is hard to do (calling it splitsville with ME)

When my boys were much younger, we’d take trips to the store during the middle of the day since we homeschooled.  We were often asked if someone was sick or if there was a school holiday.  Obviously,  schooling from home isn’t yet in fashion in this part of Texas. I’d remind my boys we were… Continue reading Breaking up is hard to do (calling it splitsville with ME)

Sharing Sunday: Gone a whoring

Our pastor shared the Word from the eighth chapter of John yesterday. {As always, this Sharing Sunday, is not necessarily representative of my pastor's sermon.  But is simply the way God spoke to me. And Caleb.} People were gathering around Jesus.  He began teaching them.  Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in… Continue reading Sharing Sunday: Gone a whoring
