Recently my son has started teaching one of the young teens from our church how to play chess. This has caused me to remember my younger days when I used to play. I was in the chess club in junior high school. I remember, while playing an opponent, thinking to myself, “If I move this… Read More Day 205- Thankful to have a voice with the King of the Universe

Yesterday afternoon I started feeling kind of blue. When I came home and went to unlock the door, I had a thought flash through my mind, like, “another winter, another spring”, and I felt no joy like I normally would. This morning I had a moment where I felt like impending doom was hanging over… Read More Day 132 – Thankful for crocuses (photos)
“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings.” Revelation 17:14a There is so much darkness in the world today. I’ve all but stopped watching the news, and even the news that comes into my inbox, some days, I just can’t… Read More Day 57 – Thankful that the Lamb will overcome!
More friends are dying, And we’re why-oh-whying, In Heaven they’re HI!-ing, So glad to see each other again! Why are we crying, Continually trying To keep them from flying To more beauty than we’ve ever seen? Up there no more sighing, No more aye-aye-aying, No more me-oh-mying, Reuniting with gone-before kin! No more they’re good-bying,… Read More Heaven Poem – Day 45
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
Demons hanging in the rafters Darkness hides their raucous laughter Cackling up there hideously At the humble on his knees. Lurking, waiting in the eaves To attack the heart that grieves, “Let’s get him while he’s down,” they say, “Before he actually starts to pray.” And in the adjoining chamber Conspire conniving fellows three Plotting… Read More Rescue
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?
Have you ever found yourself saying something like this: Crumbs don’t have any calories. Hahaha (as you eat them). I know this junk food is bad for me, but doesn’t God want us to enjoy ourselves? One little puff won’t hurt. If I say I’m sorry, they’ll take advantage of me. If I confess that… Read More What God thinks about Rationalizing

I was thinking about some very difficult trials that I went through about 25 years ago. A short time after my first husband left, suddenly, with maybe a couple of days notice, I was praying fervently using some verses from the Psalms. My prayer from the depths of my heart went something like this: Lord,… Read More A Different Miracle
I remember when I was 13 years old, mowing the grass in the front yard at my parents’ house. I was just becoming very aware of myself, and I hoped that the neighbors across the street noticed what a good girl I was. I also remember as a teenager being in the chapel at camp.… Read More Glory to Whom?
God is my Hero. He has shown Himself to be my Hero over and over again. So why am I so quick to forget? The answer to that is probably a whole ‘nother post. But yes, God is my Hero! If you’ve read my last two posts, you know I’ve been having an internal struggle… Read More God is my Hero
I have a neighbor who gives me a bit of insight into what David felt like being so hated by Saul for no fault of his own. She dumped on me today for the first time in a long time; I normally try to avoid her because nothing good ever comes out of my talking… Read More Saul vs. David — God wins
