Let Go of the Sinking Ship

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” It was a beautiful morning for our walk. My dog and I set out but I was struggling. I had been dealing with an issue that was just not getting any better.  Did you ever feel like…

The Verdict Is In…NOT GUILTY!

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. It’s hard to write about Easter.  How do you fathom the brutal, torture Christ went through for us? And how do we say ‘thank you’ for His sacrifice?  Easter is a wonderful holiday…

Can We All Just Get Along?

Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Do you ever get annoyed with people? Ha! Right? Of course you do, so do I.  And sometimes it’s right under my own roof…catch my drift? I couldn’t love my family more than I do, so why is it that…

What Season Are You In?

Matthew 24:32  “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know summer is near.” Cabbage Patch Dolls were the craze of the early 80’s.  For those who do not know, these dolls were all unique and came with a birth certificate and…

For the Love of YOUR Life

Psalm 139: 13-14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made… Valentine’s Day….that romantic day of the year spent with our significant other and/or family, eating by candle light, roses, chocolate!  Well, that’s a nice idea and has its…

Leave It!

Psalm 118:8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans. A couple of blogs ago, I mentioned that we adopted a puppy.  Well, that little puppy is now a one year old, 60 pound dog.  When we were preparing for our adoption, I started researching, and reading articles, watching…

Gratitude Cures a Bad Attitude

1 Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus Guess what? You are invited to my party…it’s a pity party.  You bring the ‘whine’, I’ll supply the complaints.  I admit it, I have spent my share of time thinking…why me?…why not me?…woe is me….I deserve it!  Who’s…

Out with the Old, In with the New

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! We are approaching a new year.  New beginnings.  Resolutions.  Moving on.   Restart.  Most of us can look back at 2015 and think of plenty of things we’d like to change.  To do over. …

It’s the Most Wonderful Time…Wait,What?

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Here we are, December 20th! Six days until Christmas! I don’t know about you, but wow, this has been a busy month.  I am guilty of letting the busyness…

Peace?? What Peace?

John 14:27 NLT I am leaving you with a gift, peace of mind and heart, and the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Peace.  It’s a word we hear very often, especially this time of the year.  Peace be with you. Love and Peace. Prince…

But God, I can’t blog….!

Phillippians 4:13 –  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a child of God.  I am NOT a blogger!  My full time mother career started a little over 16 years ago with the birth of our first son.  There was nothing…
