As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

It Is What It Is

Three-year-old Ryan sat on the sofa enjoying a crunchy apple. Teacher-type mom that I am (even before the days of homeschooling), I decided to share some science trivia with my little son.

"Ryan," I said, "some people call an apple 'nature's toothbrush.'"

The blonde boy held his apple in front of him for a moment considering, then replied, "I call it an apple."

That's my boy--then and now. Let's talk straight and call it what it is.


  1. Aw, cute story...That's Ryan!

  2. How sweet, Cheryl. A mother's memories. I love it when you share these kinds of things. Keep 'em coming! --- Frances
