Blessed Beyond Belief

Thankfulness Lost in Busyness

Life is so fast, right? When I turned 40 last summer it was like my life light turned yellow. It was a divine signal to yield, slow down and enjoy life. I am a goal getter and for me slowing down caused me to have anxiety about hitting the brakes and saying, “No”, when I […]

He’s Our All in All

I’ve toiled around many different topics to write about this week: Veterans Day, Military Life, Service, Sacrifice, Thanksgiving, Thankfulness, Community. But last night, I stayed out way too late on a school night at a Chonda Pierce concert. She said something that stuck with me, and I really feel the need to share it with […]

Jesus is in the Storm

What does the storm look like to you today? Is it physical, relational, emotional, financial, environmental, circumstantial? You fill in the _______________________.

No Looking Back

As a little girl, I’d go out in my grandparents’ garden after my grandfather had tilled the ground. When I tried to follow my grandfather’s footprints, I’d get tickled because his huge prints were cockeyed, almost framing the tilled soil. No matter how funny his footprints looked, they were always in a straight path. Now, […]

Change

In just a few short weeks, my life will be changing drastically.  Preparing for this change for months now will not be an adequate portrayal of how not only my life but the lives of all those around me will be affected.  This will not be a gradual change but rather the kind you’re thrown […]

Tracks of Low-Self Esteem

Someone told me something they considered to be true about me.  The words penetrated me to my core—not because they were true. Actually, the words couldn’t have been further from the truth.  (Or is it “farther”?  I can never remember.) After hearing the words, I gently corrected how I do handle certain situations and continued […]

Thanksgiving

As long as there is Life there is Hope.

One of my sisters, before she went home to be with the Lord in February 2015 gave me this framed quote.  “Hope – Just as the lily brings new life.  We’ll build our lives anew.  With Hope and Trust the clouds will pass and Faith will see us through.” As we face the challenges in […]
