How Much Can One Person Take?

Have you ever found yourself at wits’ end?  Have you felt so depleted and exhausted that you could sleep for years? Have you lacked the energy to do anything but cry out with a big “I can’t do this anymore” but know that you really have no choice but to move forward? YIKES!  Where’s that […]

Watching the Chicago Bears football team week in and week out can get pretty depressing since they continue to lose on a regular basis. UGH!!! I think there’s a lesson here, but I sure wish they would hurry up and learn it!!! Clearly, the Bears are not doing so hot, but I’m still wearing their […]

Legacies

It is days like today that I wonder what I kind of legacy I will leave to my family, friends and the world. I’m currently 41 and if I’m lucky, I have another 40+ years to figure out what my contribution will be and how to accomplish the tasks associated with it.  Time is running […]

The Struggle with Sacrifice

My sisters and I have a saying, “We will praise Him: win or lose.”  Kind of makes you think, doesn’t it?!?! This short sentence reminds us daily that no matter what happens during our life…God is ALWAYS in control, He loves us and He is our saving grace! Don’t get me wrong.  This is not […]

Obligation

Each time you read my blog you get the inside scoop on my personal story of Christian living.  Sadly, my life is full of ups and downs and downright failures, but all in all I hope it is clear that I put forth great effort to live a life that is pleasing to God on […]

What Do You Offer?

The El Salvador mission story I blogged about on Tuesday really has had me thinking lately about what God really wants me to be doing. Not that I’m going to pack up and move to a far off land and build schools, hospitals and orphanages, but it does have me wondering what I bring to […]
