I am grateful for those of you who still read my ramblings.  I am not one of those bloggers who posts daily or even weekly lately for that matter, but many of you are still here.  Thank you!

I returned to Japan from my unexpected trip to the USA and hit the ground running.  Ten days after my return, my hubby and I went away to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.  I can hardly believe it has been 30 years!  I am thankful for the good man that the Lord gave me to go through life with.



And now, the Lord has allowed me to slow down for a few days and spend lingering time with Him and catch up on a few things.  I thrive with routine and am hoping for some of that soon, but it isn’t looking too likely with summer upon us.

One thing I am doing is making time for reading.  I am currently reading Adorned:  Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.  It is exactly what I need to be reading at this time in my life and I look forward to sharing it with you in the days ahead.  If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it!

until the next time…



Housekeeping at the Blog

If you notice in the sidebar there is a link for my blog’s Facebook page.  If you “like” this page, it is an easy way to keep up with what is happening at the blog.  We’ve been notified by Facebook that they have changed the way they deliver content. What this means to you is even if you’ve “liked” this page, you will not see all of my posts. To ensure you see each post every day, here’s what you do:

1. Click the “like” button on this page as indicated in the picture below. A drop down box will appear.
2. Then, click “get notifications” in the drop down menu.
3. Check the red notifications you receive each day (where you are notified when others comment on your timeline, “like” your pictures, etc.) to see my daily posts.

Notifications are the little globe looking icon at the top left in the dark blue header bar. There will be a red number that appears when you have notifications.

{Please note – these settings must be changed on your computer… not from a mobile device :)}

Housekeeping at the blog…

Word on the Web is that Facebook is going to change up the news feed algorithm and that most blogs will have to pay for “reach”, for people who see their stuff. Usually by liking content, it makes it appear in your newsfeed, but this won’t be the case because they are trying to make sure that content is high quality stuff–not a BAD thing at all!  I’m not sure I’ll be continuing my blog’s Facebook page, so if you want to see my posts and interact through comments, please subscribe to my daily posts via email.  You can do this in the sidebar.  It only takes a few seconds.  I’m wondering if this has already begun, because very few people seem to be seeing my posts.  Thanks so much!!!  ~HT to Joy-Filled Days

This is in no way a protest against Facebook.  They have the right to change things up for their benefit.  After all, it is free!  Information articles:

Seven Years

Screen Shot 2013-11-24 at 8.08.52 PMNovember 20th was my seventh anniversary here at the blog.  WOW!!! I can’t believe it has been that long.  My original post 900 Square Feet was fun to read over.  Quite nostalgic.  My oldest child mentioned is now a married man.  Time is flying by!  Thank you, dear readers, for sticking with me.  Here are a few posts in review.  Enjoy!
