Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
to whom belong wisdom and might.
He changes times and seasons;
he removes kings and sets up kings;

he knows what is in the darkness,

Last week I finally unpacked my sewing machine. From our move to Nashville. Over 18 months of no sewing was too much, and it feels silly to admit I felt a little intimidated when I unpacked it and placed it on our dining table.… read more
First things first: I’m not a doctor, but I do know myself pretty well and long ago I diagnosed myself with attention deficit disorder. One thing this means for me is that I am an avid chaser of bunny trails of any (not actual bunny trail) kind.… read more
