Back to the Grind

I am SO thanking God for the upcoming three-day Labor Day weekend!!  You’d think with school starting this week and the kids gone for eight hours a day, I’d feel free, refreshed and at a loss to what to do with all this extra time…NOT!!! Getting back into a schedule and ramping up with school, […]

The Brick Wall

Recently, I heard one of the coolest stories I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS!! In a nutshell, this girl I met is from another country and she grew up poor (no shoes or food kind of poor), but persevered against all odds until she now has a […]

Sleeping with the Enemy

Don’t know if you have seen the Julia Roberts’ movie Sleeping with the Enemy from 1991, but if you haven’t…you gotta see it!  It’s scary, psychotic, thrilling and freeing.  One of my all-time favorites and it makes you feel better when the bad guy gets taken down in the end!! Everyone likes a happy ending. […]

Telling Our Story

The other day I heard something profound…well, it was to me at least. The message went something like this:  Spreading Christianity isn’t about quoting the Bible, regurgitating a list of rules or even telling someone about what our churches say we should or shouldn’t do; As Christians we should tell others OUR STORY with regards […]

A Change of Plans

On Tuesday I discussed the importance of revisiting our 2014 goals and making an effort to accomplish as many as possible. However, I failed to mention the probability of a change of plans…and oh, are there sometimes BIG changes in the plans we make!! For example, if you had asked me four years ago whether […]

We Have Today

Ever since January I’ve had a list of personal, work, home and family goals staring at me from just above my computer desk.  This spreadsheet looms over my head and occasionally taunts me until I look up.  UGH! If I hadn’t written those 59 goals back at the first of the year like I had […]

It’s Not Me

As I was scrolling down my Facebook feed I found a ‘blast from my past’ who wrote on his timeline about his life’s transformation in the past six months and to whom all praise should be extended…Jesus Christ.  It was absolutely precious. That’s what I call a GREAT POST!!! Of course, I’d been seeing bits […]

And Who Is My Neighbor?

Once again, I was pinned to my seat by Sunday’s sermon…this is happening WAY TOO OFTEN!  Wonder what that means?  Uh, oh! The scripture reading was from Luke 10 where an expert of the law asked Jesus what he had to do in order to inherit eternal life because, of course, we humans have anything […]
