My prayer

Lord, How do you forgive someone who intentionally hurts you? How did you? The longer I live, the more I understand how amazing you are. People are so incredibly selfish. How do you still love them? Please, Lord, give me insight and the strength to love those who simply don’t care who they hurt.

Create in me a clean heart

Part of my family lives in Minnesota, so you can understand why what happened there recently really hit home. {For those of you who aren’t familiar with what’s going on in the states, here it is… George Floyd was a 46-year old black man suspected of using a counterfeit $20 bill.

I can’t do this

One of the benefits of getting to watch church online is that I now have the opportunity to watch my favorite pastor, who happens to be my husband, share a message and then listen to several other ministers preach as well. For example, I’ve recently been blessed to watch a high school friend preach, and […]

Looking forward to next season

{Before you read the following, please know it was all inspired from a good friend’s post on FB. He didn’t talk about sports, however, he focused on the following scripture and how what we are going through won’t last forever. I would never want to take credit for something that isn’t totally mine. Thank you, […]
