Unexpected pleasures!

One of my favorite things in life. Unplanned visits, spur of the moment lunch dates, or my cousin calling me and saying, “get ready, I’m picking you up for a day trip”. Lol, yes, she has done this. I love the excitement of the unknown and unexpected adventures we have gone on. But then, when […]

Fixation

Psalms 121:1 Ever hear the term “target fixation”? This is a term used many times in training to drive a motorcycle. This is a belief that when you focus on a target, if you don’t look around the target you will run right into what your looking at. For Christians, this can be a good and bad […]

Rely

I normally steer clear of the subject of marriage since I have had 2 failed ones; but I also learned some valuable life lessons through the struggles of trying to keep them together and then eventually, going through divorce. One of the best lessons was that some things are meant to die. My first husband […]

Teach Me

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.” (Psalms 143:10) How are we taught? By doing lessons, quizzes, and tests? Some of us learn faster than the others. Sometimes, if you’re like me, it takes a long time to understand and get […]

Not Alone

Ugh! Flu season. Even though I got my flu shot, I still ended up getting a dose of the stomach bug. Everyone around me only had the 24-hour kind so in my mind, after being sick throughout the night, I was going to be over it and good as new by midafternoon. Well, that didn’t […]

Through The Thorns

I know that I myself have been guiltier of seeing only thorns lately. We recently had a lot of negative stuff happen all at once and I am having a harder time than usual seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Usually I am one to just shrug it off and stay positive, […]

Words

“No matter what you are facing today, Remember, God is in Control.” How wonderful is that reminder? Some of the simplest words can be the most powerful. Even the smallest remark or comment can be the most damaging, hurtful and cruel. Reading Scripture today, I noticed all throughout Proverbs it speaks well the power of […]

Better Things

We all have a past. I, for one, would like to forget many of my past mistakes and erase them totally. Some memories in our past either make us feel guilty, ashamed or embarrassed and for some, may include horrible things that were done to us. Whatever the past looks like, the enemy takes pleasure in […]

God’s Nudge

Are you the best you can be? Hmm. Some may think they are and some are pretty convinced they are. Oh, there are days I know I don’t give 100% due to not feeling well, consumed by my own thinking or just “not in the mood” to go above and beyond my own expectations. Being […]

Engaged

I have a two-year-old running around my house and the other morning while I was getting out of the shower, I saw my bible laying on the floor. The thought came to my head, “that is so disrespectful to my bible”; then I thought “When I don’t use it, look at it or engage it […]
