A Love that Never Fails

As a little girl and young woman I use to dream a lot.  Most nights I would wake from a dream attempting to scream or scared out of my mind because of what I had experienced in the dream.  Some nights I would stay up just so I would not have to dream.  I know now where… Continue reading A Love that Never Fails

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

Beach lessons

Our family went on vacation just this past week.  We were in desperate need of a recharge and reconnect.  Our lives had been full of busy since the last time we stopped to go anywhere and we were feeling like weary travelers in a foreign land.  My husband made a recent change in his ministry… Continue reading Beach lessons

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

It wasn’t the fart…

Really, it wasn’t the unmannerly expelling of gas in a public place that did me in that day.  It was all that came before.  It was the year-long battle to right myself after the death of my aunt Winnie; who was like my mom, that left this ship listing badly and in need of repairs to… Continue reading It wasn’t the fart…

What If…

What if that one thing you said or didn’t say caused someone to choose death over life? What if that one time you chose to ignore someone and didn’t include them caused them to turn from God? What if how you treated someone in front of others caused them to stumble and fall in their… Continue reading What If…

Is your water green or blue?

On the third trip to the pool store hearing the same question for the third time, “Is your water green or blue”  Is it cloudy or clear”? I was a bit miffed.  Actually, miffed would be an understatement for how I felt at that moment.  I had taken in sample after sample of water for testing and… Continue reading Is your water green or blue?

Looking back to look ahead

A dear friend made me a cross stitch saying and had it framed and sent to me a number of years ago.  She did it at a time when I was struggling to move out of a deep well of grief and despair I had found myself in after a particularly hard season in life.  I… Continue reading Looking back to look ahead
