Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
For Everything Else, There's Mastercard
One Matchbox car: one buck One racecar-shaped tin of chocolates: a few bucks "This is the best present ever!": priceless
Granted, the boy was whining at me a couple hours later because we weren't going to James's house after church (we weren't invited, but somehow it was still my fault), but at least the first attempt at Sabbath treats went over well. He was actually excited about his booster seat, too. I was kinda expecting an argument there, so was pleased there was no problem. (Thanks, Sheila!)
I got more 6-year-old boy practice while on vacation. My mom takes care of a young first cousin twice removed (great-great nephew to her) who stretches my patience to the utmost. I think the reason the Lord is putting so many of the creatures in my path is to show my just how much I am like one -- whining, undisciplined, ungrateful, disobedient.... Um, thanks, Lord. And point taken.
