I used to work with Jeremy on the job site a good bit when he was short-handed. I actually enjoy going with him and shooting grade, raking ditches, and laying Infiltrator. There is nothing like the tired after installing a septic system in the hot Alabama July sun. Nowadays, however, my job is mostly keeping… Continue reading The Family that Works Together…
Sometimes we have to be “selfish” in order to be “selfless”. Let me explain, with a couple of examples. Last night, Jeremy and I were praying together. After, he said he felt like it was a selfish prayer because he didn’t stray away from praying for our family. But I think that’s okay sometimes. Our… Continue reading Selfish?
A Day of Rest and Renewal
I don’t know if you’ve picked up on this, but we’re busy people over here at the Johnson house. There is always somewhere to be or something that has to be done. Last week was a particularly long and busy week. Not a bad week, just long and busy. So with nothing on our calendar… Continue reading A Day of Rest and Renewal
The Hour Has Come
We took our youth group to Gatlinburg last weekend to attend Winterfest. It is a large Christian youth conference, and every year, it is such an experience. Last year the theme was Shipwrecked (you can read about that trip here) with the centering verse being John 16:33. This year, we looked at John 17, and… Continue reading The Hour Has Come

I have several posts in my head and started on paper, but I wanted to make this quick update for now. This weekend, we took the youth from our congregation to Winterfest… Continue reading Marvelous Message
Praying for My Husband
Just a quick one today! In my inbox a few days ago was an email from one of the mailing lists I’m subscribed to. It was from Candace at His Mercy Is New. She has committed to praying for her husband daily through the month of February using scripture. While I pray for my husband… Continue reading Praying for My Husband
There You Are
When it feels like I’m losing every friend I’ve got When I don’t know who I am, and who I’m not When I start to let the world’s cares push me down When it seems that no one else wants me around There you are. When my chest feels tight and I can barely breathe… Continue reading There You Are
HAAR Gala 2023
Saturday evening was our annual gala for our local REALTOR®️ association. I know I don’t talk about real estate much on here, but it is a pretty big part of my life. Most of my work is behind the computer, but it is so much fun to get dressed up and go out with everyone… Continue reading HAAR Gala 2023
What About Him?
This time of year, everywhere you look you see nativity scenes. Hear those Bible stories from the beginnings of Matthew and Luke. Songs on the radio like “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” and “Mary, Did You Know?” Praise and wonder for Mary, the mother of Jesus. You know who often gets overlooked when we talk… Continue reading What About Him?
This is gonna be a short one. I just wanted to take a minute to brag on these two fine fellas. If you read my last post, you will know that several of our youth were in an awful accident Wednesday evening. We gave Tyler and Troy the option to go to the hospital with… Continue reading Boy Brag
