Peeling and Tossing

It struck me, as  I was thinking on The Mended Heart bible study that I’m doing, and I asked God to peel back the layers.  To show me “me” and to unearth the things that I’ve covered up in order to live “normally”. He wants to heal me completely. To peel back each layer and toss away the hidden junk that keeps me stuck. … Read More Peeling and Tossing

Welcome To My Monday Morning

(One of my favorite verses. I even wear it daily on a bracelet I had made.) Romans 12:12 ~ Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. As I start my day, I am so blessed to look at this Thankful Tree on my kitchen table and see the leaves of thanks that my family has hung on the limbs. Now… When … Read More Welcome To My Monday Morning

And I Am Sure Of This

    And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. ~ Philippians 1:6 (ESV)   Ever feel like a FAILURE ?

Face it, nobody wants to hear it all) I’m saying share the real you, not just … Read More Picture Perfect

I’ve found that with grief comes moodiness. Some days I’m more irritable than others. Some parts of the day I’m “ok” and at other moments I’m not. Not many people see those sides of my grief. Or if they do, I don’t even realize it. Truth is, I don’t know when the low moments will occur. Anything can trigger them. They may last 5 … Read More Without JESUS

Time Doesn’t Stop For Anyone

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. (Psalm 116:15 ESV) When I knew my Daddy was definitely dying, (I believe he had coded 2 or 3 times by this point) as we all surrounded him in the hospital, I sang “Jesus Loves Me” and “Zippity Doo Dah” in his left ear. (He used to sing the last one … Read More Time Doesn’t Stop For Anyone

New Year New Me

Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord … Read More New Year New Me
