When I was younger, I had a really hard time understanding what holiness was. I knew God was Holy, Holy, Holy. And I knew that we were supposed to try to be holy. But I found all of that really confusing. Somehow, in trying to piece it all together, I got the idea that God… Read More What is Holiness?
Hello! Welcome to week seven of Worship with me! One of my greatest joys in life is the opportunity to approach the throne of God together with others to worship the Lord! There have been times where we have entered a time of prayer, frazzled by our overwhelmingly impossible problems, but as we worshipped God… Read More Worship with me #7
On the mountaintop again, dancing, accepted, Engulfed in the sunshine of His love! The breeze catches my hair as I look at Him shyly with a happy, radiant smile! What a joy to be accepted by Him who loves me most! The valley below is almost forgotten, beautiful in the distance, but Your love draws… Read More My Love, My Delight!

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
Lungs are made for breathing air. Astounding discovery, I know! Right? Well, last night I managed to breathe in some chocolate almond milk when I was taking my pills. It’s good stuff! But it wasn’t made to be breathed in. It was not meant to go into the windpipe or the lungs. The result was… Read More Breathing Chocolate Milk? The Lung/Soul Connection
I’m walking up a mountain in the dark. (Do you ever feel like that’s what you are doing?) Bit-by-bit I inch forward with only enough dim light to put one foot in front of the other as I climb slowly, ever upward. At the bottom of the mountain, quite some distance behind me, the city… Read More Uphill Struggle
As I stood out in the rain God made it plain His love for beauty. The nighttime around And the beautiful sound Of rain falling down. (The thunder and lightening, They are not frightening With God in control.) A bulb just overhead Is serving to shed Light on the scene which unfolds.
