1 Reason You Can’t Let Fear Stay

Maybe you can think of a dozen reasons that fear shouldn’t hang out at your house, but I can tell you one great, big, huge, hairy reason it can’t stay at my house.   Before I share this 1 reason you can’t let fear stay, let me tell you how I learned that lesson. I […]

Is Anything Too Hard For ME?

Is there anything too hard for God? I am so thankful that the truth is, nothing is too hard for God.

It’s interesting, that’s a nice word for it, to take a walk with me. I’m  sorta like the little boy in Bil Keane’s “Family Circus” comic strip. I have a hard time staying focused on one thing. Everything intrigues me! I’m child like, but not childish. That’s a nice way to put it, but sometimes, […]

A Key to Emotional Health

key to emotional health

Do you ever read a quote and feel it all the way through your being…I mean like all the way to the tips of your toes? And you’re not really sure why it resonates so loudly, but it just does? This quote did that for me. “ And, I’m not even musically inclined! So, it […]

How To Float When Everybody Else is Sinking

Every mom needs to be moored to the reality that one day their child will be released into the world.

Having a baby is such a joy filled time. Getting ready for it’s arrival. Preparing the room. Selecting the tiny, little clothes. The anticipation of it’s arrival. Choosing the right name. Telling your family and friends. But it had to have been totally different for Jochebed. If I told you her life was hard, you might […]

The Question Behind the Question

I had breakfast at the fig tree this morning. It wasn’t that I actually intended to, it just sorta happened that way. When Wayne and I returned from our 4 mile walk, I wanted to see if there were any ripe figs on the tree.     And there was…so I indulged! My breakfast companion, a […]

Vision Requires More Than Finding Your Glasses

These days I need glasses to read. It’s not what you think…I’m NOT getting old! Unless you talk to my granddaughter, she will tell you differently. I hate wearing glasses, because I can never find them. Yes, I buy my glasses at the dollar store. And yes, I have a pair for every room, but somehow, […]

Where do you turn when you are discouraged?

Satan has desired to sift you as wheat, but I prayed for you that your faith will not fail.

Where do you turn when you are discouraged? Where do go when circumstances pile in on you? What do you do when your son/daughter is rebellious–seriously rebellious? Where do you look when your marriage is in trouble? What do you do when your baby has a fever and is throwing up and nothing seems to […]

Looking for Hope in all the Wrong Places

It’s a National Treasure on display in the Museum of Natural History. Its name stirred my curiosity as much as the color and light dazzled my eyes. I imagined that this magnificent Hope Diamond had earned its inspiring name by bringing hope and light to the heart of some desperate person. So my curiosity took me […]

A Dusty Road…A Rock…And a still small voice.

while walking to my grandma's house I discovered prayer is a conversation, not a dialogue.

She only lived three blocks away. We lived at house number 308 and she lived at 415, straight down the dirt road, beside the church I had attended my whole life.  I thought I was grown, but I was  probably 7 years old. You can imagine how long ago that was. I bring that up […]

WHEN THE CHILDREN PRAYED BY GUEST AUTHOR ANGEL SIMS

Jesus still heals today and sometimes he uses pint-sized saints.

Angel shared this story with me last September and I knew it was one I just had to share with you. It is a powerful story and the best part is, it TRUE! Angel is an amazing lady! And her story is fabulous! In February 2000, after too many asthma attacks to count we were […]
