Trusting Him

I hear that whispered Voice again, “Do you trust Me?”

Every Word

“Did she hear that?” The person answering shrugged it off. “O, don’t worry about it. She hears me all the time.” Yes, I did hear the words. Truth was I had heard more foul language in the short time I had worked there then I had in my entire life. Mom always taught, “Ladies don’t talk…

Like a Soft Blanket

The last month had a whirlwind of events. Yet for me, one particular two week period stands out the most. I recall where I was sitting when I received the text about a friend we have known over 20 years. As I read the words, “he has passed on,” my own breath caught in my…

Broken to be Fixed

Puppies. That is the result when you end up with a male and female dog in the house. It was not what we had planned. But it happened. And yes…..it was on MY watch! But watching these pups be born last summer was an experience I will treasure. It revealed to me a new side…

Broken Pieces

“But You promised me! This is not what You said You would do! You hurt me!” Raw and real words. Yes, I cried them out to my Lord. I just couldn’t understand. While my husband and I were praying over a difficult situation, I laid out tough questions. Right after prayer, my husband received a…

They Got It!

For me, mentoring started at home. It was a lifestyle of pouring into the three lives that were always with me. If I was working in the yard, they were there. If I was cleaning the house, they were given tasks to help. Many hours of directing plays, skits, musicals, human videos, etc., for church…

“Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” – Jesus February. It is the time of year we hear the most talk about love. Flowers, roses and candy can be seen in every store. The main focus during this time tends to be set aside for showing…

Lessons from a Train

It was a priceless moment. As I got on the floor to play with my three year old grandson, his 14 month old brother spotted us. It didn’t take long for that bundle of energy to land in my lap. As much as I attempted to prevent it, those small hands grabbed the wooden train…

It Starts Here

November is here! It’s a month that has become synonymous with the attitude of giving thanks. In a world where too often we hear complaints more than we hear admonition, having weeks of listening to people talk about being thankful is like a breath of fresh air! Yet, as Christians, a lifestyle of thankfulness should…

All Inclusive

Highlights and disappoints. Both were seen this past weekend during Mother’s day. For me, it was a full weekend with family events. Yet sitting now and reflecting on our time, it is not just the activity with family that stands out to me. It is also posts and videos. Stories shared by others which left…
