Benefit of the Doubt

The other day I had to write an e-mail to someone that contained a hard message. I was worried that they would take offense or that they would not hear my heart. As I finished the message I read through it again before hitting send. That’s when I noticed that in those two short paragraphs […]

Sheep Without a Shepherd

Serving people out in the world consistently can come with challenges.  It is a commitment we have to make and if we’re honest it can make us downright mad at times!  (No way!  Christian people serving others and being mad about it…really?)  I have heard one friend of mine say often, “No good deed goes […]

An Unthankful Heart

Numbers 21:5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses. “Why have you brought us out of Egypt to die in the wilderness?

Love Is In The Air…

Valentines Day is a day that I must admit, makes me a bit giddy.  The anticipation in knowing I can probably count on a card with a few handwritten words from my hubby professing his undying love for me sends me into orbit!  It doesn’t take too much ladies!  The note usually comes accompanied with […]

Snow Storm Survival

We’re facing yet another snow day, and I found myself complaining a little about all the bad weather we’ve had lately. I even offered to go out and scrape my own road if the schools would just LET MY KIDS GO TO SCHOOL! Then I remembered The Ice Storm of 2009. In case you don’t […]

His Eye is Always on Us

There she was running steps ahead of her mommy when it happened, the look of terror washed over her face as she realized mom was no longer right behind her. I was racing to the restroom in the airport on Monday when I caught a glimpse of this little girl.  People were everywhere moving in […]

Adoration of Christ

Well, it snowed again here in central Kentucky. We have about 5 inches of white stuff in my backyard and my puppy thinks it’s just the best thing ever!  She absolutely LOVES to run and romp in the new snow — you should see her face!  She is the happiest dog alive.  She will run […]
