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.

Imagine That!

Bekah (almost 9), talking about Eloise of the children's books and movies: "I can't imagine having temper tantrums to get what you want."

Mom, remembering that her youngest was the only one of her four children to ever do just that: "Well, Bekah, when you were very little, you used to have temper tantrums. You'd throw yourself into the floor and kick and scream."

Bekah, with a look of consternation: "Thank the Lord I have sense enough not to do that anymore!"


  1. How funny !!! But yes! Thank the Lord she does not do THAT anymore!

  2. I remember her temper tantrums well! Bekah had quite the little (big) attitude! Although I think she was more likeable than Eloise-- she rubs me the wrong way. :-)

  3. Hi Cheryl, My name is Sue and I want to congratulate you on winning your Blessed Aroma Award.
    I have enjoyed visiting your blog today,I thought this was the cutest conversation. Thank you for sharing.

  4. What a hoot! I'm also glad our dear Bekah doesn't have temper tantrums. She's still quite a "card"...wherever did that saying come from, I wonder...
