Grace

Yesterday, my six-year-old came home and asked me what ‘grace’ was.  He said he had a girl in his class named Grace and that she was nice, so he was thinking that was what it meant.  Talk about warm my heart…precious boy! Of course, his teacher had given the definition during school, but he had […]

Recharging

How are those New Year’s resolutions going for you?  Are you sticking to them?  Have you fallen off the wagon?  Are you pretending like you never made them in the first place?? If you are hanging your head in shame…don’t get too upset because the average length of resolutions is three DAYS (my pastor threw […]

Who Are We?

As a blogger myself, I often read other blogs to jog my creativity, give me ideas to write about and keep in tune with the industry. So, it should come as no surprise that I have my favorites. One that I adore is a blog called Lipstick Makes Everything Better by a girl who is […]

Who Are You Following?

Everything you read on the internet is not TRUE. (Reminds me of the State Farm commercial about the French model…hee, hee!!) Recently, I learned this the hard way after seeing a post on Facebook that Joel Osteen was leaving the Christian church and delving into atheism. There were many comments on a linked website about […]

Remembering Christ

Hey guys!  Sorry I didn’t post on Tuesday, but I have had family in town and wanted to spend every moment I could with those I love and don’t get to see very often!  Therefore, I missed blogging on one of my favorite weeks in the year…Holy Week. Of course, Holy Week is the week […]

Honor

Ever since the Veteran’s Day celebration, I’ve really been thinking about honor.  What it means.  And how to actually DO it. Clearly the first question is easily answered.  In fact, Webster’s Dictionary defines honor as high regard or respect (noun) and adherence to principles considered right (verb). As always, it gets a little tricky when […]

The Heart

It’s amazing what breaks my heart these days. I used to be crushed by someone not liking me or a sad Hallmark commercial. A few years and a little bit of maturity has grown my spirit to look outside of myself.  Of course, I’m still very selfish (I think I’ve made this clear in past posts), but God has […]

Written on My Heart

Once upon a time, I was a fair weather Christian.  I went to church occasionally, felt guilty when I sinned and prayed when I needed something.  Basically, I used God as a magician to make life easy and to get a ticket into heaven. And once in a while, I prayed a simple prayer:   God, […]

Standing Up

Hobby Lobby is one of my favorite stores.  I love sifting through the decorative items, picture frames and scrapbooking paraphernalia.  I am SO NOT a creative person, but Hobby Lobby makes me feel like I could do something unique if I sort of tried (not that I ever do – it’s the thought that counts). […]

Just Call Me Eve

Eve listened to the devil, made the decision to defy God and subsequently caved into sin.  Ain’t that the story of life?!?!  Sigh. Maybe I should change my name to Eve. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person on the planet that struggles with sin and sometimes loses all self-control when faced with a […]
