If you were to knock on my front door, i would open it with
"Hello!  come on in.  can i get you a cup of tea?"

and the floors would be in terrible shape.  the paint is wearing off the 100 year old wood and don't take off your shoes because we've been having trouble with splinters lately.  we'd sit down at my tiny kitchen table and i'd move books and dishes out of your way.  and we'd sit there midst the messes and undone-ness of this house.  and i'd pray that i would be given the grace to forget and God would grant my request and we'd have a nice chat.  and when you leave and i remember the real state of things, i would say a prayer of thanks that He grants courage and joy and a friend who will come over anyways.

this is a little bit how i feel about my new space.  the colors aren't quite what i want and the font is not quite right-a bit on the large side.  the wigets and such aren't up and running.  i am hoping to get some other features going.  but while i'm muddling through the construction and technical aspect of things, life continues happening and posts continue to spring forth and i find myself encouraged to have you over anyway.

You can now find me over at:


so come on over.  i would love for you to stop by!

a facelift??

Posted in Announcements, about

well i was trying to post yesterday.  first the computer crashed.  upon reboot i praised the auto save feature on MS Word and moved the text (again) over to this space and worked and worked on the formatting and decided to add one more picture and when i returned to the saved post with the new picture the whole thing had dissappeared.  as i'm muttering in frustration on how i have to start over again and take out all the extra spaces that this blog software defalts to and maybe i shouldn't be so picky about spaces but shell silverstien cared about the spaces and for some reason it matters to me and how do i know now if this is a really good post that the enemy wants to block or a really bad post that the Lord is saving me from publishing?  

when my wonderful husband comes over to work with his computer skills to fix it.  he cares about the spaces only because i seem to care about it so much.  and there is an update to the software-so we decide to try that.  and in doing so lose all the work he did a year or so ago to make the colors work and the title work (if you squint there at the top right you can almost see the words).  and some of the text now in my other posts looks a little wonky.

so now we're looking at some other things behind the scenes with the domain and interface and other stuff i don't really understand.  i get to try out wordpress to replace whatever the current interface is to see if i like it better.  at first glance it has the auto double space defalt too.  and that leads to a question on the name-and it can be whatever i want and do i want to change it??


thank you for grace??

and come back later???

and if you happen to have any blogging advice related to wordpress or some such technical thing you can e-mail me at;

and yesterday's post???

it seems that every time i paste from Word i get an error-we're working on that too.
