Taking Care of Yourself

The older I get, the more I realize that taking care of me (body, mind and spirit) is more important than I ever thought.  Yep…I’m slow like that! Not only do I want to be healthy as I age, but I’d really like to feel good, too!!  Of course, my vanity is mixed in there, […]

Thank you, Jesus!

There are days when your life flashes before your eyes and you realize how fortunate you are to still be breathing!  Today was one of those days. After school and the grueling homework of first grade – yes, sometimes it feels like torture – Chase (my six-year-old) went outside to play with friends.  You can […]

What Temps You?

I’ve been reading Sharon Jaynes’ two-part devotion on “I’d be happy if…” over the past week, so it was no surprise when I looked at today’s topic on the GEM calendar about temptation.  God is so cool that way! Sharon, a member of the Girlfriends in God daily blog team, wrote about Eve listening to […]

The Woman at the Well

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.

Okay…I might be slightly exaggerating.  The stories of […]

We Have No Idea

When was the last time you looked around and noticed someone in need?  Today?  Yesterday?  Last month?  Did you do something about it? Uh oh.  I’m not sure I like my answer. The ugly truth is that often we use excuses, judgments and fear to keep us from helping others.  We spend way too much […]

What is Sin?

Now that everyone knows about my Sinners’ Anonymous membership card, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss what sin really is so that we know if we are a current member or not! Pretty sure my card is snuggled comfortably next to my drivers’ license since I use it often.  Sigh. According […]

Sinners’ Anonymous

Everyone has heard of Alcoholics’ Anonymous, but how many of us have the member card for Sinners’ Anonymous?  I would dare say that most of us have it hidden between two rarely used credit cards in the last spot of our wallet. All of us have one, but we sure don’t like to admit it. […]
