Many of you have been seeking your very personal WORD for the year, as well as taking some time to reflect back in an effort to gain wisdom for moving forward this next year with greater success. I, too, have been working through the questions the old school way: with pencil and paper and a big eraser!
So, what do you do with your WORD and what you’ve learned as you’ve worked through the questions?
Today, I had a bunch of errands to run. Have you had those days? So, I prayed that I would get it all done and it would be a fun day with the Lord. I put on my worship music and tootled all over town, with such joy in my heart. It was a great […]
“She did it. It’s her fault.” “She made me do it.” “The devil made me do it.” Our fleshly response to most anything negative or accusatory is to blame someone else; especially if it might cost us something.

The Most Beautiful 11 Words In The Bible: “He is not here; He is risen, just as He said!” Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man can come to the Father except through Jesus. Jesus. The name above all names. The perfect Son of God. The perfect lamb of God slain for […]

Denial: de·ni·al: “the action of declaring something to be untrue; the refusal of something requested or desired.” Has someone said something to you and then when you brought it back up, they denied that they ever said it? It has certainly happened to me. Boy, does that make me mad! People make promises and then don’t keep […]
BETRAY: “to deliver or expose to an enemy by treachery or disloyalty; to be unfaithful in guarding, maintaining, or fulfilling;to disappoint the hopes or expectations of; be disloyal to; to reveal or disclose in violation of confidence“ Have you ever been betrayed?

Today, I have a sweet friend who will lay her 6 year old daughter to rest, after a major car accident took her life. I can only imagine how her mother thinks often about the last time she brushed her hair, felt her touch, held her in her arms, heard her yell “Mama!“, ate together, […]
I have two grown children who are both out, and on their own. I miss them every day , but am so grateful for the way they seek to honor God with the gifts and abilities He has given them. Sometimes I find myself parenting them, because once a parent, always a parent. I am […]
