A New Day

When the days become more like drudgery than opportunities – you know something needs to change. Change?  How about winning the lottery?  Moving to the beach with servants at our beckon call?  What about a life on Easy Street? Now that is what I call some good changes!!! HA! Most of the time we think […]


I’ve known for many years that God does not tempt us (see James 1:13), but what I am recently realizing is that He does test us.  EEK!!! Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of his praise be heard, who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip. […]

Giving It Up For God!

As Lent came around this year, I really had no intention of giving anything up.  Not that I wasn’t interested, but I didn’t have any ideas on what to do.  However, on Monday I had a conversation with God and to my surprise HE gave me an idea! It went something like this…. “Should I […]

Identity Crisis

However, the longer I live the more I’ve discovered that love really is a decision. Marriage is certainly not some fairy tale where […]

I can still remember the many sleepovers, scary movies, dance routines, snow tunnels, and bike riding, walking to school, becoming […]

No Defense Will Do

Some days just don’t turn out like you think they should.  Today is one of those days. I have a very sick boy who has the flu and is having an asthma attack every time I turn around.  Pretty scary stuff. The worst part is that this kiddo is just like his momma when she […]

Finishing Strong

In every game there is a winner and a loser.  (Yes, there can be ties, but I’m a firm believer that a tie is still a loss because no one actually WON.)   And man, it just really stinks to lose!! A perfect example of a disappointing loss is the Seattle Seahawks losing to the New […]
