It seems to me that I grow most in my walk with Christ when I am eating crow. Having to sit back, recognize that I have made a mistake, that I need to seek forgiveness and repentance… its humbling. (to say the least) This poem comes to mind: Those last three lines are pretty […]
I am a new convert to Duck Dynasty. I really like the show… its funny, its interesting, and all the people on it seem real. Like, really real. But my favorite thing about it is the story behind the people. They love the Lord and they testify His name. They go on national television is […]
Source: Mothers Day Sayings I saw this online and it moved my heart. Saying a prayer for all the moms today… hope you are feeling as blessed as you make others feel!
I have been getting caught up in the world lately. When someone I thought was a friend lied publically about me, I obsessed about it for weeks. I lost sleep. Spent precious time methodically defending myself. Lost time with my family because I just had to prove their lies wrong. Who was the loser? Me. […]
Let me get real down and dirty here. I dont know what to pray. In August my Father in Law died suddenly of a heart condition. Six months later my husband was diagnosed with the same condition. So I prayed, “Dear Lord, we trust you with Chad. Whatever Your will, may it be done.” I […]
God answered the question for us over and over again. I have heard it a million times, but have I really listened? I just wanted to share a little trick a friend taught… 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it […]
I came across this quote recently and couldn’t help but take notice. “When you forgive, you heal your own anger and hurt and are able to let love lead again. Its like spring cleaning for your heart.” -Marco Schimoff I sorta dismissed it because I generally disagree with the concept of “healing thyself”. But dismissing it right […]
I volunteer at my church’s youth group. There are a few reasons why this is completely ridiculous. 1. I am old. 2. I am exhausted. 3. Being hip is apparently a cool thing and not someone calling me fat. Not that anyone has called me fat. To my face. But there are a also a […]
I just wanted to share a story with you that really touched my heart. I hope it will yours as well! Not a lot of press coverage was given to the tough Argentine golfer Robert De Vincenzo, but one story from his life shows his greatness as a person. After winning a tournament, De Vincenzo […]
I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. Having hubby home, the spirit behind the seasons, the amazing food… its all enough to make me dream about these holidays for weeks before hand. But there is another side to gatherings, one that can be sometimes stressful. The truth is sometimes we just dont get along. I’ve been thinking a lot […]
I came across this “Love” passage for kids from the Adventure Bible. My kids really like this Bible! We were reading 1 Corithinans passage last night, the famous one you hear at weddings. “Love is Patient, Love is kind…” This Adventure Bible had a little different take on it, and for some reason it really […]
Every hope. Every prayer. Every promise. Every. Word.
I saw this quote today. It was the equivalent of a lightening bolt to my heart. Where does my happiness come from?
I have often reflected on this poem by Mother Teresa. And today, as I find myself getting caught up in the “first” parts of these thoughts, I want to remind myself to focus on the second. And do it anyway. Do It Anyway People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If […]
I love worship music. Old classics to new, contemporary tunes. Anything! Its all… well. Its all music to my ears. This song resonates with me so profoundly right now. This song does something to me. I have never been one to raise up my hands in church, never been able to just fall on […]

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” Colossians 3:13 NLT This verse is speaking heavy to me today! All photos are taken on my phone unless otherwise indicated. The verse is a reflection of what is on my […]
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20 NASB All photos are […]
