Marriage

Tomorrow marks my twenty-second wedding anniversary!  Woohoo!!  I know, it’s crazy that we haven’t killed each other yet…although, there is still time!!  HAHA! For us, we usually just go to a nice dinner and exchange cards.  So, as I was browsing the card isle the other day looking for the perfect message to give to […]

Living in An Anxious World

Recently, I saw a video on Facebook where Max Lucado was touting his new book Anxious for Nothing that comes out September 12th of this year…love me some Max Lucado and can’t wait to pick up what I’m sure will be a page turner!!!  Enough about my love for all things written by Mr. Lucado…. […]

Keeping It Simple

So many times we try to make life more complicated than it is.  Why is that? Some of my examples include the fact that I’ve been saying for years that I want my kids to grow up with a servant’s heart, but I’ve done nothing to make this happen.  I’ve prayed for wisdom, but refused […]

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 […]

The Cancer That Really Kills

Lately, my heart has hurt as I’ve remembered a dear friend who died of breast cancer two years ago this past week.  In her short life she touched many and made a profound impact on all those around who met her. Susan was such an amazing person with a penchant for life! Sadly, her family […]

Tests

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. […]

The Bible

Lately, my church has been doing a sermon series called, Fully Alive in Christ.  It’s been interesting, informational and downright eye-opening.  Love it when that happens!!! The biggest take-away I’ve had so far during this sermon series is how few of us actually dust off our Bibles, open them up and READ. Crazy, I know. […]

Getting Ready

Now that Halloween is over and we are on the road to Thanksgiving, one can only assume that Christmas and New Year’s will be here before we know it. YIKES!!!  It’s the first week of November!  Can you believe it?  Where has 2014 gone?  I feel overwhelmed just thinking about it!!! So, guess what?!?!   I’d […]

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 […]

Praise God: Win or Lose

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 […]
