Ps. 46:10

Be still and know that I am God.  Ps. 46:10 Off the grid. That’s what I was for over a month while we moved into our new home and waited until the cable company had the equipment they needed to hook up whatever they needed to make the box sitting in our front yard “work”. … Continue reading


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

Hidden Treasures

This morning I looked out the back window to see two birds hopping from branch to branch.  They were burying their beaks in clumps of flowers in a busy way.  I was trying to see if there was a pattern to which branch they choose.  The only thing I could tell was they were purposeful, … Continue reading

The call back

I was wondering if he would call me back. And he did. This morning, I talked to my Dad after well, I don’t remember how many years. He was hesitant, slightly awkward sounding, but yet anxious to talk.  He proceeded to tell me he had been busy the day before going door to door, giving … 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

Testimony from the Hospital

Once I heard a pastor say “you should have a three minute testimony ready at all times”. Yeah, that wasn’t about to happen.  I couldn’t sum it up in three minutes.  So, my testimony was only shared in bits and pieces.  Some people know my whole story.  Now you will too. Some time as Christians, … 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!

This sorting and packing has me finding a lot of different things.  Squirreled away were some notes from my sister about why she and the rest of the family wouldn’t be attending our wedding, my journal from the months my Mom struggled with cancer, her funeral, all the feelings I was having around the time … 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
