Screw the critics, pick yourself

This lady has a tendency to drive things home to me. Whether it’s on her blog or on Twitter giving me a what for. I’m starting to see the light Jesse! There is a good change coming!


From Prison to Palace: Joseph’s Life in Grace

I’ve had these verses in my head lately.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Jeremy Affeldt

I’ve been writing so much about grace in family life, but God gives us grace in our work too. Make yourself available to hear His wisdom, and He’ll show you where to focus your efforts. The next thing you know, you’ll succeed in everything you do.

Just look at what the story of Joseph can teach us. It’s such a good story! But it’s more than that. There is so much wisdom in it. There is so much to Joseph.

The story goes like this: Joseph’s brothers are jealous of him, so they sell him to some traders who take him to Egypt. In Egypt, Joseph is sold into the household of Potiphar, who managed the Pharaoh’s household.

Friday Night Fun


Today I get to have a lot of fun watching one of my passions. Am I nervous? Heck yeah! But does that squash my excitement? NO!

I, through the help of my sister, was able to find a great deal on tickets to attend the Western Horse Expo at Cal Expo starting today. I also have tickets to watch the Magnificent 7 show tonight which features the best of the best from the NRCHA. I’m hoping to just absorb as much as possible. It’s really been a blessing that it has all worked out for me to be able to go.

If you don’t know what any of this is, take a look and be amazed. It is so amazing what these animal athletes can do!
