Prayer Prompters

I believe in praying for my grandsons . . . and seriously, of all the things I do for them, there is nothing more important . . . and more powerful, than praying for them. But praying for them is not just something I do once each day . . . I pray for them throughout my day, every day. Whenever God brings my grandsons to mind, I pray for them.
 
But, like many of us, my days do get busy and I may be focused on the things I'm doing and not think about the people in my life who I love and who I want to be praying for. So, to help me keep them in mind, I have things which prompt me to remember . . . and to pray.

Christmas Gift Review - Back to the Roots

I was recently invited by Back to the Roots to review a grow-your-own veggies kit. Now, before I write more, please let me tell you I do not have a "green thumb". I do not have a barely "green thumb". I have a "black thumb of death". In fact, twenty years ago, after every plant I ever tried to grow died, my children "grounded" me from ever having another plant - they said it was cruel and unusual punishment . . . for the plants!
