As those of you who have been following for a while may know, my husband and I recently took our son a few states away to start his freshman year at college. We said our goodbyes in front of the guys’ dorm at the beginning of September and began the drive back home without him.… Read More Day 38 – Thankful for Good News from afar!

Last week I went to a funeral. Now mind you, I’ve been to quite a few funerals in the past 15ish years, but this one was different. This was the funeral of the patriarch of a large family, many of them family friends since my youth. I believe this was the most emotionally painful funeral… Read More Storms of emotional pain
“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him.” Psalm 37:7 Resting in His loving arms Like a young child sleeps On Daddy’s shoulder Like a baby rests In his Mommy’s arms, Safe in the shelter Of the strongest boulder. No reason to fear, I’m perfectly loved By my Heavenly Father Watching from above.… Read More Perfectly Loved
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
This is a reblog of a worship prayer that I wrote more than two years ago before I started the “Worship with me” series, so most of you have not read it yet. “Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! Who redeems… Read More Worship with me #41

My oldest daughter was 9 when her father abandoned us. For many people, being abandoned by their father has a tendency to drive them away from faith in God. My daughter had already believed on Jesus in a little-child sort of way. Her faith could have been shattered. I’ll let you her tell you in… Read More From Abandoned to Accepted
Is Jesus Lord of all? The short answer is yes. The Bible says He is, so, of course He is! But what does “Lord” even mean? In the New Testament, almost every time we see the word “Lord”, it is from the Greek word, “Kurios”, which means “supreme in authority”. * So, yes, as Christians… Read More Is Jesus Lord of All?
Titus 3:7 (The Voice) “All of this happened so that through His grace we would be accepted into God’s covenant family and appointed to be His heirs, full of the hope that comes from knowing you have eternal life.” Accepted.

I need to worship God more. Every day. But sometimes I have trouble focusing on God like I should. Sometimes it helps me to have a tool to pull out of my mental tool belt to help me focus better. I don’t remember where I first learned this, but a fellow blogger caused this to… Read More Worship ABC’s
The following is from my journal, written during extreme trials in 1992. I’m swimming in the ocean of life. Sometimes, when the water’s nice, I ride the waves–a surge of water I jump and let the water carry me up and set my feet gently back on the sandy bottom, Then again and… Read More Surviving the troubled waters of life

The concept of God being my Heavenly Father has been one of the most difficult Biblical concepts for me to grasp. It has literally taken me decades to come to grips with what it means for God to be my Father. When I read Stormie Omartian’s book, The Prayer That Changes Everything — The Hidden… Read More The Best Father in the World
