It’s Time to Break-up…

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8 Yesterday, I mentioned a group of 3 girls. That group and their negative comments that had sucked [...]

Don’t Believe the Lies

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 I have been vocal in past posts about my thoughts on, and [...]

You are the pearl

“June? You were born in June? Then why did your parents name you January?” It is a question I have gotten a lot. I know the answer. Sometimes I take the time to provide it. Other times I don’t. It has also taken me a number of years to embrace the name myself. To even [...]

To be known

I walked in the room, knowing I needed to apologize. Dinner in our home is definitely a time of interesting, and fiery conversation. The fiery ones center mostly on the state of virtual school. On any given night, one parent ends up being the bad cop, the good cop, or we both end up just [...]

The Messy Middle

There is a place I dread visiting these days. For anyone navigating this stage of parenting, you must know this place. It is hidden behind a door in our home. I know who is there. Problem is...I never know what is there. Meaning, I never know what mess I will find. Are those clothes on [...]

Are you “nuts” every day?

There are three things that amaze me-no, four things I don't understand; how an eagle glides through the sky, how a snake slithers on a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, how a man loves a woman. Proverbs 30:18-19 Yes. A card. With the word “nuts” on it. And you know what. Many would [...]

Love that chooses you

"You didn't choose me. I chose you." John 15:16  My husband and I have a back and forth banter when we talk about our engagement. His comment is that I married him. My response-"Well, YOU asked ME. I simply said yes."  It is a humorous reminder that he pursued me. Chose me to be his [...]

Looking for love? Open this…

  Write them on the doorposts of your house, and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:9 I have sticky notes of daily affirmations and reminders of my worth posted in a number of places. On walls. On mirrors. On microwaves. Coffee pots. Some are quotes I have collected through the months, but others are Bible verses. [...]

Fix my thoughts

It woke me in the middle of the night. After several weeks of a sinking feeling. That feeling that even though you woke up feeling okay, something was "doomed" to happen. After several weeks of unstoppable bouts of crying. Of chest pains I attributed to a bronchial infection. Pain so bad in my abdomen woke [...]
