Ripples

A few years ago at my Thursday ladies Bible study group, we were discussing making a difference in people’s lives.  We talked about how hard it is to know if that is happening or not.  We talked about one day in Heaven meeting those we’ve impacted by even just the smallest thing we might not … Continue reading

Wrestling will make you ache….

Genesis 32:23-32 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.  After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions.  So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.  When the … Continue reading

Another Step Closer

I can’t believe how close we are getting to when the moving truck we will be here. Meanwhile, been gathering things to go in the car for the moving van that will be unloaded when we get there.   The rest may be in storage for a bit while we see where we will end up. … Continue reading

Marinating in Encouragement

I like it when I read blogs or articles or hear something that has me thinking about their words for a while.  Recently, I’ve read about letting things go, the power of prayer, fear, sharing our testimony, being transparent in the church community, and how the church should be viewed as a hospital for the … Continue reading

Being Still

I didn’t used to enjoy the early mornings. In fact, my response to people about mornings was “I’m a night person”. Something happened over the years.  Now it is the opposite. I’m an early riser, and I enjoy it. I enjoy the quiet time before the hustle and chaos of the day begins. I listen … Continue reading

Hear me now, I am redeemed!

Teeter Totter

When I was younger my sister and I had a teeter totter in the backyard. I liked it.  Up and down in the air I’d go, my feet safely touching the ground.  Sometimes one of us would stand up and leave the other dangling up in the air, or even jump off which would produce … Continue reading

Jeremiah 29:11

Jeremiah 29:11

Sunrise. New beginning.  New plan.  What will each day bring? These words in my daily devotion from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young were a great reminder to this “planner”.  Sarah talked about approaching the day with the awareness of who was Boss.  “…..on days when things go smoothly, according to your plans, you may be unaware … Continue reading

Sitting Down For A Chat

I had a discussion with a friend the other day about some struggles they were having.  While I was in the midst of it I heard echoes of discussions I’ve had with myself and other friends over the last five years or so. We were talking about uncertainty, instability, financial insecurity, fear of the unknown, loss of … Continue reading

December’s Children

Last week on the radio they were talking to callers about how they celebrated family members with December birthdays.  One caller went into great detail about how they waited to “celebrate” their daughter’s birthday until January when the Holidays were over, and how even one year they waited until after tax time and gave her … Continue reading
