The Lord Directs My Path

Mother’s Day. My plans were to take it easy and be lazy. God had a different plan. At the end of the day, I had to laugh when I looked at my total steps for the day. I’m lucky to get 6,000 a day, so you can imagine my reaction when I saw this total! […]

Curiosity and obedience

My dreams came true last week. I started watching my “almost” 9 month old grandson. His big sister is in school, so it’s just the two of us during the day. Oh! And my fur baby, a Goldendoodle, Bogey. Let’s just say — he’s not used to being around a little one, so it has […]

He Colored My World

Back in the day when I was young, there was this song that I loved to dance to at our high school dances. It was called “Colour My World” by a very popular group at the time – Chicago. I don’t know what it was about it, but it always made my heart feel loved […]

I Don’t Want to Be Like Everyone Else

I’m doing a Bible study on James with some friends and read something that was pretty profound (down below, last paragraph).

How to win the battle

War. Most people would probably say it only takes place in a distant land. Although we have heard stories from soldiers who served our country and put their life on the line, we still can’t relate or even imagine what they go through until we experience it. Thank you, brave souls, for your willingness to […]

I believe in you

Whenever I find myself complaining or worrying about something, all I have to do is turn on the news to put life into perspective. There’s a lot of people suffering in our world – some I know and others I’ve never met. One thing’s for sure, I can’t begin to relate to the fear those […]

Pain + Change = Forgiveness

Don’t you just hate it when you can’t seem to find anything to watch on tv? The other night I clicked through about 50 movie titles, finally giving up on trying to find something new and then finally turning to something old. I remembered seeing I Can Only Imagine in the movie theater a few […]

Read on

When I was young, I didn’t enjoy reading. I really can’t pinpoint the reason — I just know I dreaded it when I had to do it. Fast forward to now – I so appreciate the ability to read. I never realized what I missed out on when I didn’t take the time to dive […]

XOXO

If you’re reading this, I’m guessing that you are either bored out of your mind or maybe you’re trying to get out of shoveling more snow! Listen, I may not have a “I’m going to share this with my friends” type blog, but I still want to take the time to share my thoughts that, […]
