Mindful of Me

I love sunsets and sunrises, ocean and mountain views, pouring rain and drifting snow, sunny days and foggy mornings.   Nature is beautiful. More importantly, it is a reminder of two things: 1. God is awesome and creative. 2. God makes amazing things. Psalm 8:3-4 says, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of your fingers, […]

Choose to Celebrate

Today is my 40th birthday.  Let me be honest: I’ve thought a lot about this day and the number 40. I know women who’ve stressed out and flipped out over turning 40 years old.  I’ve seen women go through their midlife crisis by purchasing sports cars and a younger, hipper wardrobe.  But as I think […]

What Can I Pray For?

The adoption process has been just like I imagined…in only one way: we are waiting for a baby.  Other than that, the paperwork grew beyond my expectations quickly in extent and content, the support and encouragement from friends, family, and even strangers has exceeded our imaginations, and the emotions and prayers my husband and I […]

Seasoned Words

“Your speech should always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer each person.” ??Colossians? ?4:6? ?HCSB?? Recently, someone hurt me to my very core and I wanted to scream and shout ugly things at them so they would hurt too. But the Lord whispered this verse in my heart […]

Comfort from the Great Comforter

Pack Light

In the next month, I have the privilege of flying to Las Vegas, Orlando and Puerta Vallarta.  Being the OCD-list maker-packing professional that I am, I have already begun my list of what I will need to pack.  I will be going the carry-on route for these trips, so I am trying to pack as […]

He Hears Your Voice

Psalm 116:1-2 (NLT) I love the Lord because He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! The theme for Psalm 116 is worshiping as a thankful response, not as a repayment for what God has done. (NLT Life Application […]

There is Peace in the Eye of the Hurricane

I just listened to a powerful reflection regarding the “Eye of the Hurricane” by Danita Harris, a news reporter who loves the Lord. Her message speaks volumes and something we all can take into consideration. She makes note that in the eye of the hurricane there is less wind; more peace. It is what surrounds […]
