When the Going Gets Tough

When hard times make an appearance in your life, do you: Complain? Hide? Get angry? Retaliate? Calmly evaluate the situation, ask God for guidance and proceed with His Plan? If you picked “e”, you are WAY ahead of the rest of us!!!  Congrats on such maturity, wisdom and self-control!!! However, if you are like the […]

Who Gets the Credit?

As I’ve powered through many a workout these past few months (getting ready for bathing suit season), I’ve thought, “WOW! I’m a rock star!” Yep, that’s what I’ve been thinking because normal “Meg” would rather snuggle back in bed and lazily drift through each day.  BUT…I haven’t.  Shocking. Instead, I’ve gotten up day in and […]


To say I’m a bit overwhelmed is just about the biggest understatement in the universe at the moment.  The world around me is collapsing catastrophically and all I can do is watch people hurt, mourn, deal with illness and fight for truth to win…all in a day’s time. SIDE NOTE:  I am blessed with healthy […]


The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines courage as mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. What it doesn’t tell us is how to GET it! Ah man!!! I’ve often wondered what Abraham, Moses, Noah, David, Peter and Jesus’ mother, Mary, had that God chose them to lead His people, fight for His […]

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). […]

The Vision Board

Change is a’comin’!  I know it, I feel it and I have failed to prepare for it.  (If the act of thinking prepares oneself for the future, than I should be the most prepared person in the world.  But, I’m pretty sure preparation takes action).  Argh! “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, […]

Why Me?

Have you ever been in a room full of people and someone asks for volunteers?  Do you quickly slump down your chair until you are satisfied that your head is hidden behind the person in front of you.  Do you suddenly become interested in your feet?  Or, do you hold your breath and pray they […]

True Love

I am the luckiest girl alive!  I married the man of my dreams 17 years ago and I’m still madly in love with him TODAY!!!  Thank you, God!!! Sure, there have been bumps in the road, stretches of desolate miles and a few cliff hangers, but all in all the last 17 years have been […]

Stormy Weather

Storms can be frightening, breath-taking or beautiful.  It all depends on where you are standing.  If you are standing under God’s umbrella – you won’t get as drenched by the torrential rains. However, I dare say that many of us are usually caught out on a tree limb hanging out all by ourselves.  It’s no […]

Mysterious Ways

God works in mysterious ways….  I have heard this mantra my entire life.  Most of the time it is said when something terrible or unexplainable happens and the onlookers are at a loss of what to say to the victim.  Basically, it’s said when we don’t know the why, the how and the what for. […]
