The Decision

Furiously she banged on the keys but to no avail. Annette crashed into that proverbial brick wall. All I need is 15 solid minutes is what the experts say. But who made them right? Daily she tried to keep the momentum going and sometimes she’d meet her goal while others…let’s just say her one-year-old could…

Thankful

Have you ever just took a moment to give thanks? Right now I’m watching my son, who should be asleep, giggle and play. Instead of being flustered because he’s not on a schedule, I choose gratitude. After all, he shouldn’t set the tone; that’s on the parents. There was a time when my heart was…

The first 15

  It’s 1:28 pm, Wednesday, March 8th and I’m supposed to write about something, anything. For 15 whole minutes. It’s been such a long time since I’ve written like this. Truth is if I never did this, could I truly call myself a writer? Speaking of which, call myself. So, is this dream of mine…

From Seed to Harvest–Keep the Faith

While reading this morning in Matthew 21, something was unveiled in the Scripture for me. Reading the account of how many were worshipping and praising Jesus Christ as He rode through the city on the donkey, made me reflect on how many of those same people became offended when He died on the cross and…

Shut Me In, Lord!

“…and the LORD shut him in.” — Genesis 7:16 Well, Happy New Year! With the entrance of new years and new seasons, we look for doors and windows of opportunities. We look forward to those sermons that tell us it’s time to walk–better yet, run–through those opened doors. What if that wasn’t what God is…

It’s been a while since I created a post. A lot has transpired, including the birth of our son! In another blog post I’ll share some highlights of his birth story, but tonight I want to share some things I’m learning along the way. Becoming Mommy isn’t the end of spousal romance. When my husband…

What Will You Choose?

“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” — Romans 4:4, 7 KJV It’s early in the morning and I’m doing what I’ve missed in such a long time: writing as soon as inspiration—or memory,…

God is still faithful!

“19 Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. 20 My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. 21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. 23 They are…

See you later, Grandpa

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” — Jesus Christ, John 14:27, KJV I read that scripture on Sunday during communion. God’s been having me study about peace, mainly because of our…

Get Up and Live!!!

You’ve been through so much hurt, pain, tragedy, and sorrow than most. The depths of the heaviness of your heart that has begun to manifest in your body with your health has been overwhelming. You’ve grown weary, worn, forlorn, and it’s just downright hard. Answer this for me. Is this how your story will end?…
