The Beautiful Blue Cell

By | June 25th, 2018|Mrs. D's Musings, Uncategorized|

Recently I underwent a surgical procedure for skin cancer called Moh’s. My first thought was, “That’s the name of a hardness classification for rocks and minerals!” True, but trust me it is not what my surgery involved. Moh's is microscopically controlled cancer surgery developed in 1938 by a general surgeon by the name of Frederic [...]

To make a difference…be prepared to get dirty

By | June 9th, 2018|Mrs. D's Musings|

So, there we were, driving around in gorgeous mountains drinking in the beauty of our surroundings. Great way to relax after a crazy school year. We changed lanes to pass an enormous flat bed tractor trailer that was carrying the biggest earth moving device I have ever seen. It was obviously right out of the [...]

Mrs. D’s Musings…on Mothers

By | May 14th, 2018|Childhood Education, Mrs. D's Musings|

Instead, we were like young children[a] among you. Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well. Surely you remember, brothers and sisters, our toil and [...]

Reflections on Retreat

By | November 22nd, 2017|Mrs. D's Musings, Uncategorized|

The High School Retreat is always a time of reflection. It is a time when we look back and remember what our current seniors looked like as 9th graders.  Our 2017 House Captains attended their first High School Retreat right at the Blue Horizon Retreat Center.  It is incredible to see the changes in their lives. [...]

Lichens are amazing. They are found in so many places, but because they look familiar, we seldom stop to think about their complexity. Lichens are slow growing, symbiotic organisms made up of a fungus and an alga. Because of symbiosis, lichens, or at least their components, belong to two kingdoms: Fungi and Protista. Some lichens [...]

Lesson from Olives

By | May 3rd, 2017|Mrs. D's Favorite Places, Mrs. D's Musings|

Lesson from Olives I love the beach, and last week I spent an hour walking on my favorite beach, talking to God as I went! Amongst other things I was asking for Him to renew my love and passion for Him, especially as we push to the end of the school year! As I walked, [...]

Facing the New Year…

By | January 5th, 2017|Christian Home School Program, Mrs. D's Favorite Places, Mrs. D's Musings|

The good is often the enemy of the best. As we reflect over 2016, it seems appropriate to contemplate something that truly was the "best." The first thing that comes to mind is Christmas shopping. Gift giving is always good. We love to give gifts, and we are always blessed when we receive gifts. However, [...]

HE is the Light of the World

By | December 20th, 2016|Mrs. D's Musings|

I remember when we first moved to Georgia, Mr. D was involved in the Men's Ministry at our new church . He came home one Saturday morning after the meeting and shared how they had discussed the huge stress wives experience at Christmas. He innocently asked if I was stressed! Maybe I hid the fact [...]

Musings from Mrs. D: On Change

By | November 7th, 2016|Mrs. D's Musings|

Driving down the highway together always affords us time to engage in deep meaningful conversations. On this particular occasion, we were observing the mosaic of fall colors on the trees along the road and our topic turned to "CHANGE." Beauty is often a byproduct of change, but change also causes us sorrow along the way. [...]
