Rise Above

A friend, Darrell, challenged me to write something that would go with his photo — pictured above. It was fun and difficult at the same time. I hope it encourages someone out there today. When we lived in Florida and we had the opportunity to fly to see family/friends in Texas, Minnesota, or Indiana, I […]

Judge not

Once upon a time there lived a young woman. Some would say she was beautiful, while others would say that only she thought she was the prettiest of them all. Maybe it was the way she applied her makeup, styled her hair, or tried her best to keep up with the latest styles. Or, perhaps […]

The Lord Directs My Path

Mother’s Day. My plans were to take it easy and be lazy. God had a different plan. At the end of the day, I had to laugh when I looked at my total steps for the day. I’m lucky to get 6,000 a day, so you can imagine my reaction when I saw this total! […]

I Don’t Want to Be Like Everyone Else

I’m doing a Bible study on James with some friends and read something that was pretty profound (down below, last paragraph). We ALL have those people who make us stumble — or maybe they simply share the same weakness and we find ourselves doing that which we don’t want to do — such as gossiping, […]

Did you know your cup is empty?

If you’re like me, you sometimes hear your spouse say something, but not necessarily tune-in to what they are actually saying until you hear them ask, “Did you hear what I just said?” I’m guilty – especially when I’m trying to do something else. My husband said something to me the other day after spending […]

How to win the battle

Although we have heard stories from soldiers who served our country and put their life on the line, we still can’t relate or even imagine what they go through until we experience it. Thank you, brave souls, for your willingness to […]

Thy Will Be Done

PRAYER. Do you believe in it? If so, are you truly giving Jesus room to answer you the way He wants to, or are you only willing to accept the answer that you want? Thy will be done, Lord. Less of me, and more of thee…. Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians […]

Read on

When I was young, I didn’t enjoy reading. I really can’t pinpoint the reason — I just know I dreaded it when I had to do it. Fast forward to now – I so appreciate the ability to read. I never realized what I missed out on when I didn’t take the time to dive […]

My prayer

Lord, How do you forgive someone who intentionally hurts you? How did you? The longer I live, the more I understand how amazing you are. People are so incredibly selfish. How do you still love them? Please, Lord, give me insight and the strength to love those who simply don’t care who they hurt.

Are you a control freak?

I had the worst day a couple days ago. It involved one frustrating thing after another. I was scheduled to have a heart scan to see if I have the beginning of a blockage. This was scheduled TWO months ago. That’s how backed up our hospitals are. My husband volunteered to go with me, even […]
