Just Scripture

Sometimes Scripture just needs to speak for itself. “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in […]

You Can Be Anybody You Want

I have heard so many times spoken to me or those around me, as a slogan for a motivational speech or a pep talk from a teacher, a parent’s encouragement to their child and a mantra for this generation: You can be anybody you want to be.  Even just reading those words now may make […]

Suffering to Resurrection

“Everybody wants resurrection, but nobody wants suffering!” I read this quote recently in an article I was reading, and it caused me to stop in my tracks and ponder its truth. What a revolutionary quote, especially for our world today! In the Easter season that we just celebrated, we are reminded overwhelmingly of the suffering […]

Frozen Blooms

It was going to be beautiful. The Jane Magnolia that sits some 30 feet from my living room window, the window where I daily drink my coffee and study my bible, was covered in buds. With the backdrop of the neighbor’s white picket fence, and the lake beyond, it was going to be stunning and […]

Dinosaur Eggs produce Patience!

We are a homeschool family, our weeks are full to bursting with spelling bees, math drills, and geography trivia for fun learning! When our kiddos do really well, we treat them with a few dollars and drive out to our local Dollar General. They get their own little yellow basket and scan the isles for that […]

The Stranger

For the last 9 months, there has been a stranger living with us.  This woman isn’t in our home all the time, but randomly shows up.  She walks in the room and bursts into tears and loses all sense of reality and perspective.   She prefers the AC set on FREEZE. This woman is me.  I […]

That Old Coonhound, Sadie

She’s gorgeous to look at when the sun shines down on her back. When she wandered in, she was very malnourished and timid. It took us weeks to get […]

Ministering to Women

It wasn’t until just recently that I was ministered to as a woman. I had been ministered to as a child, as a teen, and as a college student, but never as a woman. I didn’t realize how badly I needed to be ministered to as a woman until I felt God convicting me to […]

By Faith, Part 2

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”–Hebrews 11:1 My previous post tackled the definition of faith based on this Scripture.  Faith is substance and evidence.  In a ladies’ Bible study I just finished teaching, we spent 6 weeks unpacking faith.  One Bible story we kept referring to […]
