America Wake Up!

The time has come for America to wake up! Sometimes I don’t like to hear statements like this, especially from others who seem judgmental. In fact, it makes me upset because I like to see the good in people. Do you lean towards grace or judgement? I've had to reckon with the fact that vast... 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! The next thing I knew, I found myself doing what many women do in that same situation: screaming loudly and... Continue Reading →

Have No Fear

I feel like we've lived out a horror movie these last couple of months. It was more like a jump scare. "A jump scare is a technique often used in horror films and video games, intended to scare the audience by surprising them with an abrupt change in image or event." If that doesn't define the last couple... Continue Reading →

But last year my daughter and I learned about birds through homeschool science. We learned how to attract birds to our yard by putting up a... Continue Reading →

Uncertainty

We are living in uncertain times. Who would have thought our cities, nation or most countries of the world would be fighting a health crisis like COVID19? This has changed our plans or at the very least delayed them. How do we live well with this uncertainty? I love to plan and this pandemic was... Continue Reading →

What are you looking at?

With the political upheaval going on in our country it's easy to get discouraged and think the worst in our country. Right, Left, blah blah blah. I just get tired of it. Sometimes I wait until I'm just so worried sick about an issue before I bring it to God. I finally prayed. Prayer: I... 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 →

Fresh Start

I start my week by bringing my concerns to God. This particular week I was weighed down with remembering what didn't go well last week. For example: I raised my voice when my daughter gave me a sassy reply and I didn't do well providing nutritious meals for my family. These failures weighed heavily on... Continue Reading →
