About Twighee


While in college I worked in a factory and one of the veteran workers always called me “Twiggy.” I assumed it was because I was tall and thin like a twig, but had no idea that there was a model by that name until someone told me months later. After having my two boys, I don’t look quite so “twiggy” anymore! The analogy of the Leaves, the Branch, and the Trunk kind of fit the name, so I resurrected it for the blog.


I have several very vivid memories of my childhood. One of those memories is of the day I realized that I was a sinner and not worthy to live forever with God. I was six years old and sitting in a church pew listening to a Bible story during Vacation Bible School. After the story (one that was about hell) I knew I was a sinner and would go to hell. I raised my hand to talk to a teacher about it and went downstairs to “the big yellow room” with a few other kids and a lady from my church. It was that day that I prayed to God to forgive me of my sins so that I could live with Him in heaven forever. Several years later I just wasn’t sure I knew what I was doing back when I was six years old. I knew all about God and that he sent his Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for all mankind, but wasn’t sure that I really understood what I was praying back when I was only six. I then recommitted my life to Him. I wanted God to know that I understood as much about salvation as I could at that time and that I would live my life for Him. I have had no doubts since.

    I am so delighted to be finally connected with your witty recollections of your daily interactions with your “leaves.” Motherhood suits you very well.
    Does “Monkey” have a favorite baseball team?
    Bruiser is not the youngest one anymore. He’s caught in the middle!
    ‘Bud’ appears quite alert for being just a 30 day old sprout.
    You and the “Chief” certainly have your hands full.
    I am looking forward to your next posting.
    May God bless you with love and peace always

      Thanks, Nona! =) Monkey is obligated to like the Red Sox, of course! The Texas Rangers are a very close second though, as that was the t-ball team he played for this year (his first year). Bruiser LOVES his new role as “big brother.” He “takes care” of the baby so much more than Monkey always making sure he’s snuggled up with a blanket. Our hands certainly are full, but God HAS blessed us richly. We are so very thankful for this family He has given us!
