Switchfoot @ Six Flags St. Louis

September 11, 2011

0 Comments

The Switchfoot concert I attended yesterday was fantastic. – Maybe it was fantastic because of the weather: I was blown away when it was raining and sunny and a rainbow spread across the park. We are so blessed by this beautiful world. May we treat this precious gift with the dignity that His generosity demands. […]

August 20, 2011

It has been an amazingly hectic week.  And today has epitomized the chaos that I’ve felt.  This week has seen a lot: We got back from vacation (which was really just a long weekend).  But we have been struggling to re-integrate into our normal routines. The man who enticed me to leave my previous job […]

My Phone, The Chew Toy

It’s marred and unseemly… but it still functions. These words will haunt me for awhile. When I got up at 4:30, I really  didn’t want to get moving. But my life has mission and purpose. So I  got up and got prepared for the morning commute. Everything was progressing to plan until I went to […]

Some of you have been asking me where the prenuptial posts have been.  I have been loathe to post about the subject because there is still a great deal of emotional turmoil surrounding the situation.  So without further fanfare, I am announcing that the upcoming marriage of Bailey and Daniel has been postponed.

It is a bright and beautiful Saturday morning.  In one week, my third daughter will be getting married.  The whole family is abuzz with anticipation – and a little bit of dread.

The Liberman’s: We’re Going to Disney World

May 22, 2011

When you win the Super Bowl, the MVP always seems to say, “I’m going to Disney World!”  Now that the Libermans are married, they too are headed to Disney World.  This is so very appropriate for the both of them.  The night before they were married, the whole wedding party went to see the latest […]

T+1: You Can Only Imagine

May 22, 2011

I don’t know where to start.  So I’ll start with the only phrase that makes sense: praise God!  I have a new son-in-law, I hope. [More about the hope below.] Yesterday is a complete and total blur.  I think I’ll be blogging about it for a while.  But here are the highlights: Meredith was more […]

T-1: Focus, Grasshopper

May 20, 2011

It’s early Friday morning. The house is quiet – except for when Grizzly (Adam’s dog) jostles Jayden’s cheerleader doll. Then there is a moment of apprehension as I fear that everyone will awaken. Fortunately, things settle back down. So in this moment of calm, I find myself surfing the web and looking at Twitter trending […]

T-2: It’s Thursday – But Saturday’s Coming

May 19, 2011

With a nod (and a slight twist) to the author of the spiritual motif, I must proclaim that Saturday’s a ‘comin’. There is so much going on here at Chez Roo.  There is a never-ending stream of activity – some of it is even related to the wedding.  At the same time, there is such […]
