Hi, friends! Welcome to Worship with me #30! I have been SO stressed lately with all the extra trips I’ve had to make to my mom’s house to talk with the visiting nurses and physical therapists, etc., that this is the second week that I thought about not writing this post. But even in our… Read More Worship with me #30 – In the Overwhelm
Hi! Welcome! For those of you who regularly join me on Worship with me, I apologize for my tardiness today! The kids started school, and after I dropped them off, I had just a short time to grab a little breakfast before heading to my parents’ house to meet with their homemaker and mom’s physical… Read More Worship with me #29
You know that feeling when you’re really tired, but it’s a good tired because there was joy in the journey? That’s kind of how I feel tonight. But it’s not because I had a trouble-free day. Rather, it is because I felt the Presence of the Lord God with me all day, helping me and… Read More When God’s Presence is Evident
They march across the bed In various colors and hues; The army of the Mismatched Socks In reds, yellows, greens, browns, and blues. Their partners have been lost, (Hmm, that sounds familiar.)

On our way to visit family for Thanksgiving, we drive mile after mile, passing hundreds of other vehicles that represent drivers from many walks of life. We pass FedEx trucks – (got to be on time!); the farm truck with hay hanging out the back; utility vans and trucks with ladders; semis hauling goods to… Read More Ruts – Am I stuck?
I don’t like to travel through life in the darkness. Do you? It seems to me that we generally do not like the unknown. When the way is flooded with light from the sun, ah! now we love that! But when everything is visible, it is so much easier to get distracted by all that… Read More In Times of Darkness
We put our faith in natural things every day without even realizing it. Like how we expect the door to stay shut when we shut it, until one day it just doesn’t stay shut. Or like how we expect our car to start, until one day when it doesn’t and we can’t get it fixed… Read More How to Overcome Fear – Part 1
I wonder if Jesus is interceding for me to wake up and spend more time with the Lord? I have been lax in this area of getting up early for such a long time, that I’m a bit shocked that I’m suddenly waking up so early. But does it have to be another nightmare? (Sorry… Read More Where to Run When Everything is Falling Apart
It was so real, it was as though I was actually there. Dreams can be that way sometimes. The early morning sun lit up the entire eastern sky and streamed into my hotel window which looked out over the vast, immeasurable ocean. It was going to be a beautiful day! I looked out the window… Read More Tsunami! Sound the Alarm!
