The Casterlines: Rattlesnake Slayers

Or, to be more correct….The Casterline……only one of us are rattlesnake slayers. You guessed right, it’s me. ………. Totally kidding. No way would I ever get close enough to one to kill it. Roman is definitely the new family rattlesnake slayer. I mean really, who wants to get close to those things?? Yikes!! So thankful … [Read more…]

Heaven Forbid…….

There are times for us to be calm, and there are times for us to fight. And guys, it is time for that battle…past time actually. But let me be clear from the start: I’m talking about a fight against the enemy, not people. We do not fight against flesh and blood….. I think it … [Read more…]

Are You Sure God?

If you demanded that out of all of my favorite songs, I had to pick just oneā€¦..it would have to be Getting Into You by Relient K. I call this song my Theme Song for my life. I have posted a link to a video on YouTube so you can hear it, but in case … [Read more…]

Blast from the Past

Okay so, in case any of you have not figured it out yet, I am kind of just a little bit crazy. My mother is finally getting around to cleaning out certain areas of my old room, and she uncovered a paper I wrote when I was 14. I’m going to guess that this was … [Read more…]

When the Going Gets Tough…..

…..the Tough dig their heels in deep and pray harder. And that is exactly where Roman and I find ourselves these days: praying a lot harder. “I’m sad.” he lamented over the phone.“Why are you sad?” I asked.“I can’t find a job…..” he said quietly. The past few days have been really hard. Roman had … [Read more…]

Legs of Steel

More like, “my legs have been beaten with steel beams”. So you know what that means? Yup, yesterday was my first day at the gym (a.k.a. the place that smells like sweaty socks). The original plan was for me to do upper body on Monday, and then lower body/back on Wednesday, but she wound up … [Read more…]

I Did It

Yup, that’s right. I did it. I went to the building that smells like sweaty socks (a.k.a. the gym at work) and got the physical assessment done. She’s going to work up my fitness plan over the weekend and I will start hitting the weights on Monday. I am excited because I finally got off … [Read more…]

Don’t Miss This

The women’s class at my church has been going through a series called “Undercover” by John Bevere. Last night was Week 3, and let me tell you…that stuff hit home hard. The basic theme of this study is submission to authority: authority to those who have been placed over us and submission to the ultimate … [Read more…]

Anchovies and Sweaty Socks

Let me go ahead and apologize for any and all references to the word “anchovy”, including the title of this post. I’m having a ‘thing’ with that word right now. Ahem. You see, it all started when Roman sent me a text this morning. He was trying to be sweet, but his phone had other intentions. “You … [Read more…]

Writer’s Block

I’ve always loved reading and writing. I learned how before I was even in K-5 and have been reading books and writing silly stories ever since. But for the past few days, I’ve logged onto this blog several times, written the title to a post, only to later delete the title and log out. I’m not sure why, but … [Read more…]
