Gloomy Room

A gloomy room has a dark, dismal feeling to it. You don't feel joyful, and even the air feels heavy. If you struggle with depression, being in that room makes you feel worse. Maybe you've had some sad moments, or it could be your secret place where you go to cry alone. For many, it's... Continue Reading →

Healing for a Mother’s Heart

There seems to be a growing, widening gap between generations today. Young adult children are turning their backs on their parents. They won't talk to them, come home on holidays, or be an active part of the family. Most moms experiencing this gap were caring, loving, and sacrificial when their children were growing up. It...

The Hope For Tomorrow

Waiting with God These last few months have been particularly hard for Christians. We've seen all the terrible decisions that have been made by ungodly leaders. God has told us to wait. During times of prayer, my heart would be reassured that we are waiting together. I'm not alone in the waiting. God is right... Continue Reading →

Going to Church Alone

Churches are open again in California with some restrictions. For the last year I have watched church from my couch usually wearing comfy clothes and nestled under a cozy blanket. Honestly this fit quite nicely with my introverted self. It's not that I don't like church or even the people at church, I do. It's... Continue Reading →

Alone or with God

One morning while reading and journaling, I saw a shadowy thing go by. I thought, "hummm, that's weird. Wonder what that was." But then I saw clearly what it was. It was a grey rat!

Learn God’s Rest

As one who suffers from an Autoimmune disease, I have to carefully balance work and rest. Sometimes I get overly ambitious and pile on too many tasks to complete. I don't take time to rest, so I hit a wall. Then I can't do anything productive the rest of the day. I have to "save"... Continue Reading →

Our Spouse’s Weaknesses.

We really love each other! However, as you know, individual weaknesses affect our marriage. Sometimes I feel stuck because my spouse is unable to move. I've also heard friends share this same tension in their families. They were stuck just like my husband and I are stuck. It is actually painful. It's painful to watch... Continue Reading →

Stop Worrying

This morning as I watched the sunrise, I was all bundled up in a cozy blanket. I warmed my hands with my cup of coffee, which had just the right amount of cream in it. On the outside, everything seemed right with my world. But on the inside, my mind started to wander. Sadly, it... Continue Reading →

What I am not praying about?

Sometimes I wonder about what I'm not praying about! It seems like my daily prayers are so narrow and hit only a few things (subjects). For example: I pray about my family's safety all the time, I pray for wisdom for everything going on in my week, and at certain times of year I pray... Continue Reading →

The Perfect Age

I just read the article "What is the Perfect Age?".  I've actually been thinking about that lately.  On the west coast of the USA people are saying 47 is the perfect age.  Well then I should have a very good year then.  What do you think is the perfect age? God's word to us: I think every... Continue Reading →
