Help Is on It’s WAY!

I could use some help.  What about you? Besides the mental help I need, I have dreams of having a chauffeur, chef, cleaning crew and cocktail waitress at my beckon call.  Ahh…a girl can hope, right?!?! In reality, we each have loads of things in our lives that could improve, expand, develop or tweak; but […]

Choose Joy

As the days have gone on and I’ve become less anxious about having another panic attack, I’ve been trying to discern what I should change and what I can do to better prepare myself for the next time I’m faced with a fearful situation. I am definitely beginning to think that this panic disorder is […]

The Blessing in the Fear

In case you were wondering why I didn’t post a GEM this past Tuesday – I could not find the wherewithal to put two words together because I was paralyzed by an unfounded fear due to a horrific panic attack I experienced on Sunday night and am still dealing with today. As most of you […]

The question I have for you today is, “What does your relationship […]

Meeting Jesus

Sunday’s Easter service was amazing!  Not only was I able to worship with friends and family, but I also learned that hallelujah means “Praise God” and that amen means “I believe it.”  Love it when I learn new stuff!!! As I listened to the sermon that listed the many prophesies of the coming of Christ […]

Walking Towards Redemption

As we march through Holy Week to Easter Sunday, it occurs to me that our lives are aptly named a journey – just like the path Jesus took to the cross. Each day of Jesus’s life led him to the day he saved the world. For God so loved the world, that he gave his […]
