Pinky promises from God

"We will go tomorrow to get donuts. I promise." I said this to my little boy as he headed into the house. As he trickled in from school, and we then began the task of managing the afternoon and evening activities. Pinky promised that, yes, next time we would go. "Tonight we have a lot [...]

Stand up and walk

Stuck. Sometimes we just get stuck. I don't mean like in the mud, or in an elevator-although we can certainly feel at times that we are stuck and not going anywhere. Like everything else is passing us by. Like everyone else is being blessed, healed, whatever. And we are not moving at all. A man [...]

God of the harvest

Waiting on the Lord versus just giving up. Listening to Him to tell me when to move versus acting based on my desires, wishes, or what I think God should do. That is how my prayer life and spiritual walk has been for some time now. Praying for light, but seeing darkness among the very [...]

Move, girl!

Hmmmmm......looks like they finally moved that thing. How many times did I ask for that very same thing to be done? Wow! Really? I put that request in years ago, and now it's finally important to someone? This is how it begins. A blast into the past. Recounting all the hurdles I had to jump. [...]

And I know He watches me…

I don’t like birds. May seem like a random bit of information. And, it could even seem a little strange, since as a child I used to watch them. Study them. Wonder where they were going. Had been. What their behavior said about them. However, I also remember walking to the school bus and getting [...]

Need an answer? Don’t Google it…

“I saw it on the internet.” “I don’t know. I googled it.” This. This is how we get our answers to many of life’s problems. To the things we don’t know. I am of the generation who had to research via encyclopedia. Trying to find out information on anything took more than 30 minutes; sometimes [...]

Me, of little faith

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me! Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” Matthew 14:29-31 "Are [...]

A rainbow, a promise

"For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, My love won't walk away from you, my covenant commitment of peace won't fall apart." Isaiah 54:10 It seemed to be a morning like most. While I was in a different zip code, state, and porch, my morning routine had not changed. [...]

The lost (beans) get found

Anyone that knows me well, knows that I have a slight, unhealthy dependency on coffee. So much so that I have been known to plan entire road trips around stops at Starbucks (don't judge!). My husband also knows this about me. Thankfully, he also understands my obsession, and the fact that it is essential to [...]
