WWJD: Envy

Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 1 Corinthians 13:5, NIV "Must be nice." I was taken aback. This was my favorite show. Grey's. One of my favorite characters. Bailey. Who always supported other women. Now, spewing these words about a woman who decided she wanted to follow her dreams and [...]

WWJD: Kindness

Never let loyalty and kindness leave you!    Tie them around your neck as a reminder.    Write them deep within your heart. Proverbs 3:3, NLT Kindness. What do we often think of when we think of random acts of kindness? Pretty words? Random gifts? The second portion of 1 Corinthians 13:4 states that LOVE is kind. But think [...]

The blessing is the payback

Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing. 1 Peter 3:9, NLT Hurt. We have all experienced it. We have all had people hurt us-whether intentionally or [...]

The truth about love and lists

I am here to be real. To be straight up. To share the messy. The truthful. And if you remember, I had some issues about love and what it meant for me a couple months back. All because I was tasked with making a list. I shared a little about that assignment and how it [...]

For those who seek Him

Stories. We all use stories to make a point. Stories are a more interesting way to get a message across to people. A way to help others understand a concept that may be a little hard for others to grasp. Stories keep audiences engaged. Everyone loves a good story. Well, most everyone. “Why do you [...]

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. [...]

The spirit of love

"For the whole law can be summed up in this command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Galatians 5:14 It has been said when discussing the act of finding love, that the secret to loving another person is to love oneself first. Some may see this as selfish, but when looking at the command "to love [...]
