About Me

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).

He Touched Me


Sunday afternoon I started my class with a new lady who years ago had attended Sunday church for about a year,  but said she had never been taught what it meant to be a Christian. The Holy Spirit led me from passage to passage, focusing much on Romans 5 to share the good news with Marta. I paused frequently to define terms like redemption, justification, etc, sharing the wonder of God's love and grace towards us. Finally I sat back and said I wanted to hear from her. I didn't even ask any questions, but her response was of faith and decision. Emma, who arrived just after John 3:16, joined me in praying blessing over Marta.  When I told her to talk to her father, do you know, she prayed the "sinner's prayer" without me guiding her at all!! How I rejoiced to hear, "Lord I give you my life, my heart, my all. I put it all into your hands. Help me to know you."

Immediately she shared some things from her life, but with a faith and fluidity of words that caused her to pause and marvel, "I know that the Lord is with me and has touched me!"
