Battles

I was saddened to hear of the impending divorce between Lysa TerKeurst and her husband.  Is no one safe?  I guess not ☹ In case you don’t know who Lysa is, she is the founder and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries.  Additionally, she is an author, blog writer, speaker and teacher.  Her mission is to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Relying on God

Have you ever noticed how everything always works itself out? For example, that final exam in Calculus when you were a sophomore in college that you fretted about for the entire semester…do you even know what you scored?  Probably not. Or what about that appraisal that came in too high for the house you were […]

If God’s on My Side…

Have you ever had a situation that scared you to the bone, but you had no power to change it? I’ve decided if you live long enough, you might have more than just one of these circumstances and I can only hope that through each event we are strengthened and made wiser. Life throws curve […]

Decisions, Decisions…

Life is full of decisions – from choosing what to wear to changing professions.  Daily we are required to decide which direction to take and what choice to make.  Not all decisions are life-altering, but several ARE! Take for instance, someone lies to you.  Do you call them up and ball them out?  Do you […]

Turning the Big 4-0

Tomorrow is my birthday!!  WOOHOO!  Shoot off the fireworks!  Strike up the band!  LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!! Can you tell I’m a tad-bit excited?  Doesn’t everyone celebrate their birthday for the whole MONTH??  BAHAHA!! Instead of throwing in the towel since I’m turning 40 this year, I have let loose and embraced the opportunities […]

A Different Play Book

Tomorrow night begins the NFL’s 93rd season with the Cowboys competing against last year’s Super Bowl winners, the New York Giants.  As excited as I am to see the first game of the season,I’m MUCH more pumped about the Chicago Bear’s game on September 9th against the Indianapolis Colt.  Da bears…. As I’ve said before, […]

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 […]
