I Feel Sorry for the Statue of Liberty

Well, I don’t feel sorry for THE Statue of Liberty.  The person I feel sorry for is the guy on the corner dressed up like the Statue of Liberty. In our town there’s a tax service that uses the Statue of Liberty as their mascot.  When January rolls around every year we start to see…

What Winning Looks Like

She didn’t roam around the store or try to take off with 15 pair of socks or shred all the price tags into tiny pieces on the floor…

Standing on the Edge

Sixteen summers ago my husband was finishing up his first year of seminary and we didn’t have any children yet.  We worked for the seminary and college but our responsibilities ended when the students left for the summer and we had 2 months before they came back.  It was the first and only time in…

Watching the Impossible

Two years ago my 6 year old made a request.  She wanted to go to Sea World.  Unfortunately, I just didn’t see that happening.  The Post clan has been blessed with God’s provision of all that we need and some of our wants, but a trip to Sea World is a pricey endeavor for a…

I Can See Clearly Now

Given the terrible weather SC has experienced in recent weeks, the name of this post might lead you to think it’s about our rain finally being gone.  But this post is actually about glasses for a seven-year old.  However, I do want to publicly say thank you to all the folks who pulled together for…

Sibling Rivalry

Sibling rivalry.  I know a thing or two about it.  I have brothers – one a twin.  I have 5 kids.  I’ve seen my share.  There are days when my kids are so sweet to each other.  And then there are days like we’ve had lately.  I had to take a kid to the eye…

To All the Single Parents

My husband was recently on a trip out of the country for 2 weeks.  In the meanwhile, I was home with 5 kids trying to keep the wheels on this bus moving.  With or without him there was still school to get to, homework to be done, Girl Scouts and soccer practice.  There was still…

Mercy Wins

Yesterday a woman came and knocked on my door.  She was down on her luck and looking or some help.  She said she needed some food, some gas money and she and her friend were living out of her car.  It was hot yesterday.  September is still warm in SC.  I couldn’t do much, but…

Reflections of a Preacher’s Wife

Today is my 18th wedding anniversary. My husband was already a preacher when I married him and so my life has been on display before a congregation of people since before I said “I do”. All these years later we have ministered in many settings to multiple congregations and have been blessed with 5 great…

Afraid to go Home

Sometimes I will see my kids do something and I’m suddenly transported back to my childhood. Today I was reminded of an incident with my twin brother. We were at my Grandmother’s house and were about 4 or 5 years old. We were playing in Grandmother’s garden. He had a rake and I had a…
