God’s Work

Colossians 3:23-24 As a social worker, my job can be stressful to say the least. There are deadlines, paperwork, large numbers of people to serve, etc. Processes and regulations are always changing adding another layer of frustration and headaches. And just when it feels as though you are catching up, another referral comes in or […]


I might despise where I live or lived, but I still had a place to live. I might despise the cars I have or had, but I still have a car. I might despise the food I had or must eat, but I still had food. I’m sure Isaac despised when he had to take his […]

Turn Cheek

God says, “Love each other as I have loved you”. Easy? No! We all have different ideas, opinions and up-bringing; do we really have to “love” everyone? If we are truly God’s children, yes! His love is unconditional, forgiving and pure. This means we turn the other cheek if someone hurts our feelings, says something […]


“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.” – Hermann Hesse. God will ALWAYS take something and make it into something beautiful. The way we give bad or good fortune a value is trust […]


Where do you keep your treasures? While having a conversation recently with my 12 yr. old twin granddaughters, we were discussing where they keep their most precious and meaningful keepsakes.

Porch Rail

This past week, my landlord replaced my porch railing. The existing one had loosened up, was broken in some spots and had become a safety hazard. The new one is stronger, more stable and dependable. I no longer have to worry about falling. We can look at God as being our new “railing”. Our old […]

Memory Lane

Jeremiah 29:11 When’s the last time you took a trip down memory lane? I had the opportunity recently to do just that. I went back to my family roots where my Dad grew up and where I spent most of my weekends as a kid. Oh, the memories of my childhood flooded my mind! From […]

Happy Place

Matthew 14:23 Where’s your happy place? My happy place has been the same forever. Quiet, peaceful and surrounded by nature. Today, I’m on my porch listening to the birds, wildlife and an occasional car going by. This is where I find my peace. Where I can regroup, collect my thoughts and spend time with God. So […]
