Come sit a spell at my Tree Pickings blog or visit the mainpage tree pickings.blogspot.com to get to know the family.

Welcome to my piece of the net! My blog is how I hope to keep in touch with my family, our friends, and the wonderful folks who take an interest in us. I'll share my musings on our family, our ministry, "Arbol de Vida" ("Tree of Life"), as well as from my copious readings of many genres.

I live in Torreon, Mexico since December 2008. I'm an avid reader and knitter, enjoy sewing, and have gotten my share of compliments on my cooking. My husband Chuy and I love challenging each other to a game of Scrabble and my daughters enjoy me reading aloud to them (well, two out of three, do).

If God Opens the Door

"Oh, Abby, do you know what Dad said? When God opens a door, no one can close it!"

Beth and Abby were discussing their hopes for a trip to Monterrey to see the latest object of their affections, and wondering how much hope they have of making dreams come true.

Recalling yesterday's sermon, she went on, "And when God closes a door, uh-oh, (a pause) no one can open it." Her voice had lost some of its animation by this point. There followed a discussion about prying doors open and similar thoughts which was rather amusing to hear while I chopped veggies for lunch.

My heart was most warmed to know that my young teen does pay attention to what her Dad says to the church, and is smart enough to see how it applies to their own lives. 

"Well, if God opens the door, then nobody can keep us from going to Monterrey!!" happily concluded Abby.
