A Beautiful Tour

This is one of my favorite pictures – I say that about most of my pictures of Texas. It was taken while traveling down the backroads of west Texas during a tour of colleges for my oldest daughter. The trip consisted of just us girls (me, my oldest and youngest). We three traipsed across Texas… Continue reading A Beautiful Tour

The Light in the Darkness

Ink black sky, sliver of a moon shining bright. Lone star twinkling in the night there in the darkness, tethered to the slip of illumination coming from the crescent shaped moon. Smallness in shape yet hopeful, breaking through the suffocating blackness. A lifeline. A position to take hold of; focus on, steady ones course by.… Continue reading The Light in the Darkness

Somewhere in Between

We are all somewhere in between something. A beginning and the end. New and old, Life and death. Some time ago I found myself in this place of somewhere in between. My heart and my life had went through a series of difficulties, a couple of heart wrenching losses of loved ones, some markedly painful… Continue reading Somewhere in Between

Friendship

Friendship is meant to enrich your life, its meant to build you up and fortify you against the harsh elements of the world. God designed relationship / friendship. He is the author of it all. We are meant to gather together, sharpen each other and lift each other up. Thankfully our friendship has grown sweeter over the years and even though we don’t live close in proximity to each other when we do get together it is like we were never apart.

Radical Love

My husband and I began another small group class on marriage.  This is one of many classes, seminars and breakaways we have done since 2012 when we began our ministry to couples and families.  Our hope in doing this is to give them tools we did not have in order to have a Christ centered… Continue reading Radical Love

Through the Valley of Winter

I came across this piece in the memories timeline I had written and posted to social media over six years ago.  It was written during a time I was attempting to traverse the loss of several precious people in my tribe.  Loneliness, grief, and a loss of joy had taken root in my being.  I… Continue reading Through the Valley of Winter

Move the Mountain

Remember faith; however small, can move the hand of God which formed the mountain in front of you.  God is moved by our faith.  Faith will move the mountain.

I will fight

Today I will fight. I will fight fatigue. I will fight boredom. I will fight apathy. I will fight complacency and procrastination. I will fight against the fiery arrows of the wicked one that threatens my faith in the redeemer. I will fight the urge to quit, give in and give up. I will fight for my family, for… Continue reading I will fight

Seeing the bigger picture

I’ve prayed about this whole unity thing for a while now.  What does it mean? How do we get there from here? Can one person make a difference?  Cause a revival of unity? and on and on the questions go; till I felt overwhelmed with the task.  Thankfully God made me a big picture person.  He… Continue reading Seeing the bigger picture

As light pushes back the dark

I usually woke early way before the others who would serve that day.  My essentials gathered : coffee, devotional and bible.  I sat between the rising sun and the setting moon.  I needed to meet with God to try to make sense of what I was feeling and seeing.  Try reconcile old with new and allow God’s presence… Continue reading As light pushes back the dark
