Colorado Road Trip (with kids and COVID restrictions)

Our Colorado vacation was phenomenal and very achievable, even with all the new restrictions. You need to put in your time planning for a successful visit. It’s more work, but you’ll be glad to did the extra planning. First of all, Colorado has an all-state mask mandate. Though most of the places we visited were […]

God Winks

The past few weeks I have been wishing Micah had some easy-slip on sandals. Today as I got the kids ready to go outside again I was reminded of how he could use some sandals. I was careful to not say my thoughts out loud in front of him or my other children because we […]

Mom’s lesson

Cindee Lee Sweeney, my Mother. She had a contagious laugh. She loved to have a “good laugh” (which meant laughing until your belly was sore and your eyelashes were wet with tears.) She loved to chuckle, even if it was at the expense of herself, or someone else. She would much rather have a good […]

Learning to Reflect

While I was praying I had a vision of an olive tree. It was beautiful. It had a thick healthy trunk, but it was different. There was a branch on the left and a branch on the right, but the middle was missing. What did this mean? I especially wanted to know because I was […]

Why Wildly Joyful?

Why did I choose the name Wildly Joyful for my blog? Well I’ve been waiting for a “good” answer to this question.  I believe the Lord revealed it to me it this past week. Getting out in nature does wonders for the mind, body, and soul. Experiencing God’s creation is exciting! I love to pray […]

Deeper Dimensions

I did not want to post about this topic, but I received confirmation numerous times this past week. It’s easy for scoffers and doubters to share their opinions. I tried to steer clear from this topic, but it was like I kept getting nudged to post this so here we go! December 31st 2019 Rob […]

Beautifully YOU

There are many types of flowers from roses to daisies, from lilies to daffodils, from the iris to the tulips. All have a distinct characteristic. All are beautiful in their own unique way. Just like God made many kinds of flowers, He made many kinds of people too. Each person has the potential and opportunity […]

Disruption

I’d like to share a story of the last trip we took to Cliffside Campground in Southeastern Wisconsin. My family and I went camping (in a tent, we rough it, so we appreciate our comfy beds when we return home.) My two youngest brothers joined us. We had a long day of walks and playing […]

A Willing Vessel

My heart is hurting for our nation today. Riots. Destruction. Hate. Crimes. The manipulation. The evil. God please help our world. Help our nation. We need you. Victor Jackson is an evangelist from Florida. He is licensed with the United Pentecostal Church International. He had a heavy burden for the hurting people of Minneapolis. Traveling […]

Simply Honest

During this quarantine, my children and our neighbor’s daughter have become “fence pals.” They eagerly await their friend to come out and play. They look forward to each others faces, smiles, and little talks. They seem to play by that fence more often. It’s located in the very back of our yard. They look through […]
