Getting the Breath Knocked Out of You!

Life seems to be going along pretty good…when, all of a sudden, unforeseen circumstances tackle you from out of nowhere leaving you gasping for breath!  It may be a situation, a diagnosis, words spoken, or any number of other predicaments that pop up in your life that make you feel the air has gone out of […]

Another Season

It’s a new season in my life—one that will, at least for extended reading periods, require reading glasses. Now this may not seem like a big deal to some, but this is yet another mile marker that seemingly happened overnight. Over the weekend, I noticed that my eyes felt extremely fatigued and at times, my […]

The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God won’t keep you.

This week has been a whirlwind of motions and E-motions. On Monday I was notified that my sister-in-law was killed in a car accident. I’m talking about a woman that was the glue for so many, including me. She was such a positive person, always talking about her faith and encouraging others. Head over heels […]

Bless her heart, there she goes planning again:)

I’m a social person and I love a good party as much as the next gal. I love the atmosphere, the food (DUH!), the people, and even the planning! I am an extrovert through and through so I get my energy from being around large groups of people and busy places. My nature sometimes gets […]

Sandwiched!

  My generation is often referred to as the “sandwich generation”.  I definitely fit the description…..I’m the primary caregiver for my husband in his 4 year battle with lymphoma; as an only child,  I oversee the needs of my aging parents; and I often babysit my grandchildren after school and on occasion.  This all comes along with the […]

The Battle

Various Bible translations are scattered around my home.  I even have different translations on my Kindle.  So, whatever is closest or if I am trying to gain a deeper understanding of the Word in preparation for a conference, determines which translation (s) I use for further study. This morning, I went for what was closest. […]

Is that you, God? Oh okay, LOL, thought so.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! The holidays got away from me and my blog posts suffered. For that I apologize and ask that you listen intently to these divinely inspired words….haha, jokes! These past few weeks have been filled with a lot of God talking and me listening. Now that’s not to say […]

Patience and Endurance

James 5:7-8 Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmer who waits for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near. Patience, […]
