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 […]

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 matter what the ‘thing’ is, Christ is in the storm. You may be thinking, “What do you know? My __________ is so big, so rooted, that even Christ isn’t in that!” Let’s […]

A Study of Psalm 51:1-7

Scripture: Psalm 51:1-7 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Go Boldly

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (NKJV)   Even as I type these words, my hands shake and my heart is in pieces. I wonder if yours is too… What has you coming boldly to […]

A Stone’s Throw Away

Click here to read John 8 :1-6… As I read the story of the woman caught in adultery, I wondered what she must have been thinking.  Had she heard of “this” Jesus as she stood a stone’s throw away from impending death? Caught in the very act of adultery, she was taken to the temple and […]
