All things new… To really get into the deep conversation of it all, we are so busy. You know exactly what I mean. You are busy too. You have families, friends, ministry, jobs, and the list continues. I wish I could tell you that I my every day is completely focused on just Titus II […]

Healing Hands… I have not been feeling well for the last couple of months.  As a mom and woman, I just brushed it off as, “I am fighting a bug”, “it’s been a long winter” or “it’s just the end-of-the-year run down feeling”.  I finally decided to go in to the doctor because I felt […]

I am thankful for God’s words to me through the Bible.   While it can become cliche to quote simple verses, the realization that those words are God’s written for me to read, timeless, yet relevant for my current situation is amazing.   I am thankful for Psalm 56:8-11, “Record my misery; list my tears […]

Some people are going to think I am crazy, but I am thankful for freshly fallen snow. Yes, I love  it early in the morning when the air is cold and crisp and there is a fresh layer of snow on the ground and in the trees. It reminds me that Jesus died on the […]

I am thankful for my family.   I am thankful for the way we love, even when life isn’t perfect and arguments arise (sometimes more often than we care for). I am thankful for the blessing they are to me.  As major holidays pass and life sets back in, life sometimes becomes ordinary and we […]
