The other day I took all the dog hair laundry, made a bundle of it, and hurriedly threw it down the basement stairs, almost to the laundry room, and promptly forgot about it because I was too busy with other things. A little later I went down and found that someone had picked it up;… Read More Clean Sanctuaries

I’m writing this open letter as if to a sister, it could be a blood sister, an adopted sister, a spiritual sister, excetera. I think many of you can relate, as you also have someone in your life who comes to mind when you read this. Perhaps it is a friend, a spouse, a neighbor,… Read More Open Letter to a Loved One – when misunderstandings happen
This evening I got a bit frustrated with the changes that suddenly happened (again) while I was trying to edit on my wordpress blog. They have developed a new format, and there must be some glitches that have been happening; it’s very discouraging for me because I’m so NOT tech savvy, and tech changes are… Read More What a Glorious Day that will Be

A while back my teenage son and I made liver and onions together. We used the cast iron skillet on top of the stove to cook it in. After the food was very much all gone, I scraped the pan and gave the scrapings to our always-begging-to-be-fed beagle/terrier mix, Lilly.Then I left the pan sitting… Read More More Doggie Lessons
One super, freezing cold morning, a number of years ago,when everybody else was staying indoors as much as possible, I put on double, triple and even quadruple layers of warm, winter clothing and went for a walk around the track at the local college. Needless to say, I was the only one walking the… Read More God’s “Just-Because” Surprises

I grew up going to Sunday School and memorizing Bible verses. Perhaps many of you can relate. And when I learned each verse, I understood it with a child’s understanding. As I got older, I made the mistake of thinking that I understood various verses without digging more in depth to see if there was… Read More What is the Beginning of Wisdom?
Which is more stable to be leaned on, a walking stick, a rotten fence post, or a boulder? And which is more trustworthy, our own understanding, or God who is our Rock?… Read More Finding Someone Strong to Lean On

I love to read passages of the Bible where God appears to man. If you haven’t read through the Bible, you may be surprised how many times this happened. Joshua 5 and 6 contains one of these passages. In Joshua 5:13-15 we see that a man is standing before Joshua with his sword drawn. At… Read More Appearances of God to Man – Breakthroughs
Accusing and debasing words only have power over us if we let them. I reject those labels and accusations.
They are not helpful for the furthering of the kingdom of God.… Read More Rejecting Labels
Hi, and welcome! 🙂 I was debating over whether I should continue the “Worship with me” series in this new year, and I discovered that I personally need to keep the awesomeness of the Lord before me.

The room was small and dimly lit. One bare bulb hung above the door reflecting off the white walls. I had come to this place surrounded by fields of grain, in the middle of nowhere, during the daylight hours, but night had fallen, and with it, a thick, inky, impenetrable black darkness under a moonless… Read More Safe in Him
You know it’s interesting how we can go and go and go for so long, trying to be the strong one for everybody else, and then, “pow!” We hit our limit. That’s where I’ve been the last week or so. After having a very nice Christmas with family, (thank You, Lord), life got really crazy… Read More In Need of Prayer
