He Holds the Future

If you’ve been following the state news, you know that there are some issues with the pensions of state employees.  As a public educator, I am affected by this.  It affects my future. I am reminded, however, that God holds my future. As I reflect on crisis or tough times in my life, I am […]

Covered in Prayer

When I was in high school, I had found out that one of my friends had asked her Sunday school class to pray for me. I was livid. Pray for me?!?! There was nothing wrong with me, so I couldn’t understand why my friend would be praying for me and asking others to do the […]

But Grace

So, last night about 10:00, I realized it was Friday.  That’s when I also realized I had not completed my post for this week.  Talk about a big “OOPS!”  As a blogger, I often found myself asking forgiveness from my readers when I hadn’t posted as often as I’d liked. I felt the need to […]

Morning

I am totally a morning person.  My favorite thing to do is make a pot of coffee, check out the sunrise, and read my Bible. Morning is just a special time. It’s quite for the most part (I’m usually the only one up). The beauty of the sunrise amazes me.  Although the view out the […]

True Love

Next week, dozens of roses will be delivered to women everywhere.  Expensive chocolates will be bought, and cards will be sent. Eventually, all of those things will end up in the garbage.  For some, feelings well be hurt because they didn’t get that diamond ring they were anticipating and that expensive meal they waited hours […]

In God We Trust

For those of us who are military families, uncertainty is just part of life.  We often live a life of “hurry up and wait.”  Uncle Sam could knock on our doors at any time. Military families live with a lot of unknowns, yet it’s important for us not to place our faith in the government, […]

When Storms Come

  On Thursday afternoon, I made the dreaded trip to the grocery store.  We are under a Winter Storm Warning, so we must be prepared. You know the drill: milk and bread in every shopping cart.  When the forecast calls for extreme weather events, it’s only natural to prepare.  Even those of us who live […]

Make This Year Different

It’s that time of year: We are bound and determined to make a change in our lives this year. We’ve chosen our New Year’s Resolutions or chosen our One Word.  We’ve joined the local gym, stocked our fridges with fruits and veggies, and filled our water jugs.  We sync our Fitbits as we sit down […]

Live Christmas Everyday

During the Christmas season, people for the most part are more loving, caring, and giving.  It’s like they get a glimpse of Jesus and share Him, even if it is just for a little while.   I think there is this whole innocence surrounding Christmas.  If we allow God to be seen through all the […]

Something Good and Beautiful

Currently, I am reading one of my favorite books, Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskin, to my fifth grade homeroom.  The main character, Caitlin, a child with asperger’s, is dealing with the death of her brother.  She’s searching for closure for herself, her father, and her new friend Michael, whose mother was killed along with her brother.
