Speechless. Completely speechless.
That is how my prayer time has been lately. Several people I know have gotten some bad news about their health and have asked for my prayers, but all to often I am left without words. My heart cries out to God, but my voice is left silent.
In moments like these I rely on the truth of this verse,
“And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them...Read Full Post »

Have you ever laughed out loud while reading the Bible?
With my stomach still growling after dinner tonight, I did just that, laughed out loud!
Matthew 4:2 “After He (Jesus) had fasted 40 days and 40 nights He was hungry.”
Ok stop right there. Laughing commence!
It was only after the 40 days that you are saying he was hungry!? Forty!? Well, that is proof enough for this food lover to be persuaded that Jesus is Lord!...Read Full Post »

Is there a part of your day that you look forward to the most?
My favorite part of the day is dinner time. It’s time for me to catch up with my kids and husband and spend some quality time with each other. Telling stories and sharing in the exciting things that took place in our day brings blessings to my soul.
We play a game called High/Low. Everyone has to share their favorite part of the day, their High, then they share their saddest part of the day, their Low. I started...Read Full Post »

“A bee is never as busy as it seems; it's just that it can't buzz any slower.” Kin Hubbard
Not a week goes by that I don’t complain about being too busy. But I know I’m not alone because the minute I start grumbling, others chime in as if it’s a competition to see who is the busiest. Our society sounds like a swarm of bees needing somewhere to nest and give it a rest!
Rest and renewal are essential; in fact they are a blessing. God set the example for...Read Full Post »

Did you know there are over 40,000 types of olive trees! Crazy isn’t it!
“The olive tree, Olea europaea, is very hardy: drought-, disease- and fire-resistant, it can live to a great age. Its root system is robust and capable of regenerating the tree even if the above-ground structure is destroyed. The older the olive tree, the broader and more gnarled the trunk becomes. Many olive trees in the groves around the Mediterranean are said to be hundreds of years old, while an ag...Read Full Post »

5 pages into Lysa Terkeurst’s book “The Best Yes” and I am hooked, and caught all at once. I will be honest reading is a past time I miss. So if I indulge in a book it must captivate me quickly. Well by page 5 this quote grabbed me, “We said yes to so much that we MISSED what I call our “Best Yes” assignments- simply because we didn’t heed the warning in the whispers within the subtle space.”
I am only on page 23 of the book...Read Full Post »

Good ol’ Mrs. Howard. If you lived outside the city limits, as a child, chances are you rode a bus to school. Even with an age difference of almost seven years, my sister and I knew only one bus driver. You could set your watch by the arrival of Ms. Howard’s bus. For miles the approaching sound of churning gravel, accompanied by a trail of chalk white smoke, predictably announced her impending arrival. Grabbing our sack-nasties and throwing them into our backpack; we ran breathle...Read Full Post »

It’s odd the things that capture your attention. But as I read Revelation, I became intrigued by this verse. “I wept and wept because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look inside.” John had been given an astonishing vision of the throne room of God.Read Full Post »
